Abstract

La naissance des villages perchés et fortifiés, la recomposition de l'espace rural qu'elle induit, sont des thèmes de prédilection et débattus, connus sous le nom d'incastellamento, de l'histoire médiévale de l'Occident méditerranéen depuis la publication des Structures du Latium médiéval de Pierre Toubert en 1973. Les antécédents, la genèse, les modalités du processus, sans négliger ses hésitations ni ses échecs, sont examinés ici dans une enquête d'archéologie et d'histoire micro-régionales. Des prospections et des fouilles conduites dans une vallée frontalière des Apennins aux confins de la Sabine et des Abruzzes, jointes à la critique de la documentation écrite, montrent comment les facteurs économiques et sociaux se conjuguent à l'histoire politique générale et à ses répercussions sur l'organisation des pouvoirs locaux pour expliquer les évolutions matérielles des formes de l'occupation du sol et de l'habitat qui ont dessiné le paysage des campagnes jusqu'à nos jours.

Abstract

Les sources vaticanes sur la Révolution française méritent une étude méthodique, tout comme le travail des théologiens romains, dans la réponse aux courants réformistes qui agitaient alors l'Église. L'enjeu est de comprendre les réactions du pape Pie VI Braschi et de sa Curie à la Constitution civile du clergé et aux développements de la Révolution. La Curie étudie en parallèle les événements de France et les actes du synode diocésain de Pistoie (1786). C'est une théologie romaine de l'Église qui se construit face au gallicanisme, au joséphisme et au jansénisme : la situation particulière de l'épiscopat français en exil permet au Saint-Siège de valoriser sa primauté de juridiction. Après une présentation de Pie VI et de son pontificat, le travail des congrégations particulières pour les affaires de France est suivi pas à pas, dans la préparation des brefs, dans les conséquences du schisme, de la Terreur, de la campagne d'Italie, jusqu'à la mort du pape à Valence (1799). Le « martyre » du pape prépare-t-il aux yeux du futur Grégoire XVI « le triomphe » de l'Église ?

Abstract

The emperor Nero is etched into the Western imagination as one of ancient Rome’s most infamous villains, and Tacitus’ Annals have played a central role in shaping the mainstream historiographical understanding of this flamboyant autocrat. This section of the text plunges us straight into the moral cesspool that Rome had apparently become in the later years of Nero’s reign, chronicling the emperor’s fledgling stage career including his plans for a grand tour of Greece; his participation in a city-wide orgy climaxing in his publicly consummated ‘marriage’ to his toy boy Pythagoras; the great fire of AD 64, during which large parts of central Rome went up in flames; and the rising of Nero’s ‘grotesque’ new palace, the so-called ‘Golden House’, from the ashes of the city. This building project stoked the rumours that the emperor himself was behind the conflagration, and Tacitus goes on to present us with Nero’s gruesome efforts to quell these mutterings by scapegoating and executing members of an unpopular new cult then starting to spread through the Roman empire: Christianity. All this contrasts starkly with four chapters focusing on one of Nero’s most principled opponents, the Stoic senator Thrasea Paetus, an audacious figure of moral fibre, who courageously refuses to bend to the forces of imperial corruption and hypocrisy. This course book offers a portion of the original Latin text, study aids with vocabulary, and a commentary. Designed to stretch and stimulate readers, Owen’s and Gildenhard’s incisive commentary will be of particular interest to students of Latin at both A2 and undergraduate level. It extends beyond detailed linguistic analysis and historical background to encourage critical engagement with Tacitus’ prose and discussion of the most recent scholarly thought.

Abstract

In republican times, one of Rome's deadliest enemies was King Mithridates of Pontus. In 66 BCE, after decades of inconclusive struggle, the tribune Manilius proposed a bill that would give supreme command in the war against Mithridates to Pompey the Great, who had just swept the Mediterranean clean of another menace: the pirates. While powerful aristocrats objected to the proposal, which would endow Pompey with unprecedented powers, the bill proved hugely popular among the people, and one of the praetors, Marcus Tullius Cicero, also hastened to lend it his support. In his first-ever political speech, variously entitled pro lege Manilia or de imperio Gnaei Pompei, Cicero argues that the war against Mithridates requires the appointment of a perfect general and that the only one to live up to such loft y standards is Pompey. In the section under consideration here, Cicero defines the most important hallmarks of the ideal military commander and tries to demonstrate that Pompey is his living embodiment. This course book offers a portion of the original Latin text, study aids with vocabulary, and a commentary. Designed to stretch and stimulate readers, the incisive commentary will be of particular interest to students of Latin at both AS and undergraduate level. It extends beyond detailed linguistic analysis and historical background to encourage critical engagement with Cicero's prose and discussion of the most recent scholarly thought.

Abstract

Trebia. Trasimene. Cannae. With three stunning victories, Hannibal humbled Rome and nearly shattered its empire. Even today Hannibal's brilliant, if ultimately unsuccessful, campaign against Rome during the Second Punic War (218-202 BC) make him one of history's most celebrated military leaders. This biography by Cornelius Nepos (c. 100-27 BC) sketches Hannibal's life from the time he began traveling with his father's army as a young boy, through his sixteen-year invasion of Italy and his tumultuous political career in Carthage, to his perilous exile and eventual suicide in the East. As Rome completed its bloody transition from dysfunctional republic to stable monarchy, Nepos labored to complete an innovative and influential collection of concise biographies. Putting aside the detailed, chronological accounts of military campaigns and political machinations that characterized most writing about history, Nepos surveyed Roman and Greek history for distinguished men who excelled in a range of prestigious occupations. In the exploits and achievements of these illustrious men, Nepos hoped that his readers would find models for the honorable conduct of their own lives. Although most of Nepos' works have been lost, we are fortunate to have his biography of Hannibal. Nepos offers a surprisingly balanced portrayal of a man that most Roman authors vilified as the most monstrous foe that Rome had ever faced. Nepos' straightforward style and his preference for common vocabulary make Life of Hannibal accessible for those who are just beginning to read continuous Latin prose, while the historical interest of the subject make it compelling for readers of every ability.

Abstract

The multidisciplinary contributions to this collection of papers look at Rome as the cultural and Milan as the political capital in the 4th and 5th centuries. In the literature of the time both cities were perceived as spaces in which the political and clerical power struggles, and the political and cultural changes which were so important for the Latin West took place. The cities are thereby understood as "stages" upon which the world theatre of the politics of power, culture and the church was produced. The reconstruction of both "stage settings" is based on texts, inscriptions and archaeological remains.; Therese Fuhrer, Freie Universität Berlin.

Abstract

Die Entstehung von Großstädten ist kein Novum der letzten drei Jahrhunderte. Auch im griechisch-römischen Kulturraum gab es bereits Millionenstädte, die in struktureller, kultureller und sozialer Hinsicht heutigen Großstädten durchaus vergleichbar waren. Aber hielt diese besondere Form menschlichen Zusammenlebens auch Einzug in die Literatur ihrer Zeit? Ohne Zweifel wurde in den Dichtungen der augusteischen und kaiserzeitlichen Epoche eine Großstadt wiederholt zum Ort der Literatur gewählt: die Hauptstadt Rom. Die vorliegende Untersuchung geht der Frage nach, inwieweit die Großstadt mit ihren (spezifischen) räumlichen Merkmalen in den zeitgenössischen Werken thematisiert wird und wie die lateinischen Autoren sich zu ihr als einem eigenen literarischen Gegenstand positionieren.

Abstract

Les guerres constantes menées par Rome dans la péninsule ibérique aux deux derniers siècles avant notre ère ont la réputation d'avoir particulièrement contribué à fragiliser le régime républicain en déstabilisant le système de recrutement traditionnel des armées et en révélant les limites de leurs conceptions de la guerre et du combat. Ce livre montre qu'il n'en fut rien. D'une envergure en général plus restreinte qu'on l'admet ordinairement, les conflits opposant Rome aux peuples de la pénin...

Abstract

Ce fut le grand exploit et la fierté des Empereurs romains que d’avoir fondé l’approvisionnement de Rome sur des bases nouvelles et plus sûres. Pour expliquer leur succès, il ne faut certes négliger ni l’acquisition d’importantes nouvelles sources d’approvisionnement (l’Egypte), ni l’amélioration des moyens de transport et de stockage, ainsi que des installations portuaires, ni les progrès de l’administration (le préfet de l’annone). Mais la concentration des armées aux frontières et leur rel...
