Papers previously published in other languages are translated into English, and all papers have been updated in order to make cross-references possible as well as to correlate with the reference system of Edmonds' new edition. The papers faithfully reflect the broad diversity of the problems, views, and methods that the study of the gold tablets have raised. They are organized according to a polemical — but still argumentative — dialogue concerning the question of whether the tablets are really Orphic or not, and, more fundamentally, whether Orphism really was a unified religious and literary tradition or not.

The reader is invited to draw his or her own conclusions. Compared with the recent editions of gold tablets by F. But Edmonds sometimes suggests important new readings. A positive and negative critical apparatus allows the reader to evaluate these interpretations. For example, concerning B1. Edmonds aims to show that the existence of such a unified sacred scripture, derived from an original source, is an unnecessary hypothesis because the gold leaf texts might constitute mere responses excerpted from hexametric oracles about the personal afterlife.

One may admit that these oracles were thought to have been revealed by Orpheus, but Orpheus is only one of the possible voices of oracular authority, whose paradigm is to be found in the Trophonius oracle at Lebadeia, where Mnemosyne's spring guarantees the attainment of sacred knowledge. By attacking the unity of the "Orphic" eschatological corpus, Edmonds casts doubt on Orphism as a unified religious movement: But even if Edmonds is right in refuting a unified Orphic scripture resembling the Christian Bible but today, who wants that?

This extreme nominalism overlooks the spiritual dimension of Orphism: It would not be absurd to label this attitude "Orphic", even retrospectively.

Moreover, the obvious diversity of the gold leaf texts might not be the proof that our grouping of the gold leaves is a mere artifact, but rather the sign of a living tradition that deals with something deeply important in human life, i. Orphism would thus be positively affirmed as a unity and would no longer be defined by what it is not, i. Dousa's paper is the first serious published study about the possible connection between the gold tablets and neighboring Egypt, famous for its old afterlife rituals and its funerary texts since Zuntz mentioned this hypothesis in He concludes that, if any influence took place, the Orphics at least re-organized the motifs and gave a new meaning to old patterns, as Diodorus already suggested in antiquity.

Although such a pioneering approach is absolutely necessary, other important comparative perspectives for analysis of the gold tablets, which would deal with other cultures and test methodologically more refined hypotheses, are missing in this volume. To compare isolated motifs, as Dousa does, might obscure the fact that the main difference between the gold tablets and Egyptian sources is concerned not with the place or the nature of the netherworldly tree or spring, but the roles played by Memory as an immortalizing power and the nature of immortality itself, which, in Orphism, marks a divergence from terrestrial existence.

In Greece see Obbink below , initiatory Memory draws parallels with poetic memory, which establishes an imperishable glory, so that the claim to a divine origin is not a "kratophanic" assertion similar to what we see in Egypt p. Egyptian texts, as presented by Dousa, do not reflect on the poetic tradition and its import on the nature of the individual soul. A common inheritance ought to be considered, especially if one attempts a comparison with Iran and India. The epic tale was changed into a soteriological program, so that the personal immortality obtained in the world beyond by remembering the divine origin itself reflects the imperishable kleos granted by the professional memory of the epic rhapsodes.

This is proven by the stylistic similarities between the claim of the poetic hero to belong to a superior genos and, in the gold tablets, the claim of the deceased's soul to its genos ouranion , i. In accordance with this ontological shift, the social elitism of the Homeric epic has been changed into a spiritual elitism, but the words remain generally the same. Such an inheritance ensures the unity of the various types of Orphic gold tablets. The stylistic conservatism of the itinerant initiators may have been an excellent strategy to legitimate their radical novelty at the theological level.

Les adverbes latin : syntaxe et sémantique (Kubaba) (French Edition)

May we not understand both of these kinds of genos and immortality as being related through a structural difference rather by any historical process? In the larger context of the Indo-European poetic inheritance, as it is evidenced in Vedic culture, we could recognize that the heroic kleos worked from the beginning as a symbol of a more substantial immortality granted by special rituals and mental exercises. Obbink's article would agree with such a synchronic perspective. The recitation or the inscription of the gold tablet texts, by recapitulating Homeric formulae, constituted a ritual act that made the addressee worthy of heroic cult status.

As Obbink recognizes, the soteriological content of the gold leaves should not be separated from their poetic form. The stylistic similarity between the gold leaves and Homeric epic does not simply reveal ideological appropriation obscured by literary continuity, but rather the religious function of the leaves. Obbink refers to certain odes by Pindar in which the poet compares his poetry with an immortalizing libation to the Heroes; similarly, the water of Memory in the gold tablets could be understood as an allegory of the power through which poetic speech brings life to an individual soul.

Thus Orphism may be seen as a religious practice that results from reflection on the ritual value of a Pan-Hellenic poetic tradition, rather than a special tradition with new theological and stylistic features. Faraone reminds us that the prosaic synthema "Bull, you jumped in the milk" A group reflects Dionysiac religion as reconstructed from other early evidence.

By uttering this statement, the initiate re-enacts the sudden motion of the god from life to death and back, as it is told in the Homeric episode of Lycurgus: It deals with a personal internalization of Dionysus' mythology, leading to an identification with Dionysus himself. Thus Dionysus would not only have been the mystic goal, but also the dynamic paradigm of every initiatic process. In a way, every human being is already redeemed.

As implied by another tablet family group B, with Mnemosyne , salvation is granted by the recollection of the true nature of soul. To conclude, this book recaps years of philological and theoretical research concerning the gold tablets. As a whole, it is an essential tool for the scholars interested in Classics and ancient religions. By raising difficult questions and exciting hypotheses, it brings us further along the path of Orphic studies. As GJ do, op. Un reecuentro , vol. But comparison with Iran doesn't prevent to maintain some connection between Egypt and Orphism: Horky argues that Egypt, while under the rule of the Achaemenid kings, might have constituted the intermediary through which Iran indirectly influenced Orphic eschatology.

He strives to underline the variety of wares produced at the site and to employ this material in refining our knowledge of Delphi's later history by situating his findings within the social and economic contexts of Greece and the eastern Mediterranean.

He points out that most studies focus on specific types of pottery e. His own emphasis is on a diverse category of ceramics produced by workshops at Delphi. Supplemental finds from other French and local Archaeological Service excavations are also presented. A description of the history and archaeology of Delphi between the fourth and seventh centuries CE occupies part one of the book and is divided into two chapters.

The first examines the evidence for Protobyzantine settlement at the site. He supports this hypothesis with several types of evidence, including written sources, small finds such as coins and ceramics, careful analysis of stratigraphy, and a description of preserved monuments. Excavations at both sites were conducted over the course of several decades, with the most intensive investigations occurring in the s. Evidence from "l'Agora romaine", located at the southeast corner of the Peribolos wall surrounding the sanctuary, shows that its plan changed little after its initial construction in the first half of the second century CE.

This site produced a small number of fourth-century deposits, including several associated with an earthquake between and CE, containing a large number of ceramics of different types. Following the abandonment of this house around , an artisanal quarter was established in which pottery production was an important enterprise. This second phase lasted only from approximately to CE, but produced a significant assemblage of local and imported wares.

The second and largest part of the book consists of two chapters dedicated to locally produced pottery. The first is a discussion of the evidence for ceramic production at the site including kilns, wasters, moulds, kiln supports and of the abundance of certain forms and a description of the fabric and decoration of local vessels.

Information on production in the fourth century comes mainly from kilns identified in the Gymnasium, to the southeast of the sanctuary, and from finds in "l'Agora romaine". A lengthy catalogue of local wares comprises the second chapter of part two. For each distinct ceramic type, he provides an introduction with a detailed discussion of the nature of the finds, their method of fabrication, their characteristics, and their use.

His discussions are rich in detail, and often he provides intriguing critical assessments. When discussing weights, for instance, he includes several paragraphs dedicated to examining the many different functions these items may have had in antiquity. A single chapter dedicated to imported pottery types identified at Delphi comprises the third part of the book. This material is important for its insight into the site's economic relations and for its ability to refine the chronology of local wares found in associated deposits. Lamps from Corinth, Attica, and Africa were also identified.

After a summary of the various local pottery types identified, he turns to a brief outline of the implications of this material for understanding Delphi's economic connections and social character. He notes Delphi's apparent prosperity, ascribing this to the site's continued control over the fertile Kirrha Plain. In addition, most of the imported ceramics come from North Africa, a pattern seen at other archaeological sites of this period in south and central Greece. He concludes, after noting a lack of evidence for any disruption between the fourth and early seventh century CE in the ceramic record or otherwise, that Delphi was relatively peaceful during this period.

With respect to the overall abandonment of Delphi around CE, the ceramic record provides few indications as to why this happened. This book was written by a scholar who clearly possesses a substantial knowledge of Roman ceramics. It offers a detailed account of a local ceramic industry deserving of consideration from scholars interested in the economic history of Roman Greece and the eastern Mediterranean. The volume is well organized and well illustrated. Plates at the end provide large, clear images that will facilitate further identification of the various vessel types presented.

This will help scholars in other regions assess whether any Delphian products are part of their assemblages. There are, however, a few difficulties that render the book less useful than it might have been. While he does offer some quantitative statements, such as noting that the proportion of local ceramics increases in later centuries, he provides no data to corroborate these statements.

Quantified data sets are among the most effective means of comparing pottery assemblages from different sites. The lack of such evidence in this report will impede efforts to compare other local ceramic industries in the eastern Mediterranean with that of Delphi. His description of each is based primarily on results of chemical and mineralogical testing.

Of great benefit would have been a systematic description of each based on macroscopic characteristics, perhaps modeled on the system used by G. Sanders, for example for material from Corinth. Instead, he includes this information in the introductory section for each ceramic type. A more efficient and unambiguous approach might have been to provide a detailed, systematic description of both fabric categories, mention in the catalogue entry which category a vessel belongs to, and then describe any variations in colour, inclusions, surface, etc.

This would have eliminated much of the redundancy in describing the fabric of each piece individually and would have facilitated the identification of fabric groups from Delphi at other sites.

An additional criticism is one that concerns pottery reports in general, and not only this specific volume. The final section, which in pottery reports tends to range from several paragraphs to several pages, can leave one unfulfilled since in-depth synthesis is left for scholars engaged in subsequent studies.

While this would increase the length of a pottery report, one would hope that future authors of pottery studies will see the benefit of dedicating more time and effort to the synthetic portion of the text. This book is an important addition to the corpus of ceramic publications from sites in the eastern Mediterranean.

Europe and the Mediterranean, , Oxford, The 48th volume in the steadily growing and renowned I Tatti Renaissance Library Series is a useful edition and translation of Lilio Gregorio Giraldi's Dialogi duo de poetis nostrorum temporum by John N.

In this work, consisting of two well-crafted dialogues, Giraldi gives an overview of a great number of contemporary poets from Italy and the rest of Europe mainly Latin, but also some of the vernacular poets are mentioned in a form that Giraldi defines as a catalogue catalogus. Over three hundred poets are mentioned and briefly described in no fewer than pages of Latin text in the current edition. It will be easily understood that this makes not for very exciting reading, all the more since Giraldi's language is very repetitive and the discussions of the poets are almost never accompanied by a specimen of their works.

Therefore, Giraldi's text has not much to offer for the general reader, but it is often used and cited by scholars of Renaissance literature, since it offers valuable information about the opinions on 15th- and 16th-century European poets in their own time and the circulation of their works, sometimes even on poets solely known from a mention in Giraldi's work. Grant's excellent edition, translation and notes will make the consultation and understanding of Giraldi's work easier.

In accordance with the series format, Grant offers a succinct and factual introduction in which he discusses the life and works of Giraldi and comments in greater detail on the date s of composition, literary qualities and Latinity of the dialogues. All important information for the novice reader of this work has been included; expert readers will appreciate Grant's discussion of the model for Giraldi's work, Cicero's Brutus , and his useful remarks on the peculiarities of Giraldi's Latin.

The edition has been based, as is often the case in the I Tatti series, on the main Latin text of a recent critical edition from Italy ed. Corbo editore, , 1 but Grant has also consulted the sources two contemporary editions and an earlier critical edition ed. Weidmannsche Buchhandlung, for his edition.

Moreover, Grant has emended the text at some places where he judged it necessary, most often to clarify incomprehensible grammatical constructions, which he considered as printing errors. He admits that this approach to the text may be tricky given Giraldi's slightly distorted Latin and, indeed, it is not fully clear why some strange constructions are not emended, where others are.

Furthermore, the edition is admirably free of typos and other mistakes.

The facing English translation is commendable for its accuracy and reads pleasantly. However, in the case of the Latin word legere , probably the word used most often by Giraldi, which Grant does not always translate with 'read', 5 this variation seems less felicitous, since it partly obliterates an important and remarkable aspect of the work: Giraldi's discussion of the poets is not based on who is writing, but on who is being read, and being widely read is one of the most important parameters in the evaluation of the poets.

An inevitable problem in translating a work discussing the writings of more than three hundred other authors is that, for a fully accurate translation, one would have to be an expert on all these, often obscure, poets.

  • That this is impossible, even for the informed translator that Grant is, is for instance noticeable in I. Here, Grant thinks that argumenta in Lucanum indicates Sulpizio's 'commentary on the poet Lucan' p. Arguably the most essential parts of an edition of an encyclopedic work like this are the notes and other contextualizing material, and Grant does an excellent job in providing these.

    The most useful is the extensive biographical glossary pp. In the notes, Grant provides other than biographical information that is necessary for understanding the text. The notes are factual and illuminating, but I would have preferred some more comments on the occasional literary strategies of the work e.

    In the notes too, Grant makes an occasional mistake in clarifying Giraldi's sometimes obscure remarks about three- hundred-plus poets. For example, when the author of the work writes about two brothers of Johannes Secundus who also wrote poetry, he is not talking about Nicolaus Grudius and Everardus Nicolai p. The volume is concluded by a useful index, which is very complete and will not only help in finding the poets discussed, but also in finding place names and literary genres.

    The only thing that could have been improved upon in my view is the bibliography, which would ideally list every scholarly contribution on Giraldi, but which, in fact, does not even list all recent literature on the edited work. To conclude, Grant offers a very accessible and trustworthy new edition and translation of this important work for scholars of Renaissance poetry. Of course, this new edition in the I Tatti format does not answer all questions about Giraldi's dialogues.

    Thus, one may wonder how Giraldi collected and used his source material: A complete study of the uses of sources by Giraldi could offer new insights in the editions he consulted and thus in the circulation of prints in the sixteenth century. One also wonders about the social circumstances in which a work like this, which now seems rather boring to write and read, could function. A general study of this and similar catalogue-like works may open our eyes for the interplay of forces in the literary and social circles of Renaissance Italy.

    This, however, is no criticism of the current edition, but an illustration of the fundament for further research that it will hopefully be. I have not been able to consult this work, since it is out-of-print and not readily available in libraries outside of Italy. This underscores the need for this new edition by Grant. The Latin text of Pandolfi's edition is available at www. Given the financial situation in Italian Academia, it can only be hoped that this is a temporary problem.

    Of Grant's emendations, I would question the following: I only noted the following typos and mistakes: I noted the following mistakes in the translation: De poetis nostrorum temporum di Lilio Gregorio Giraldi', in: To subscribe only to comments on the blog: Monday, October 31, Ovids Metamorphosen und die Frage der Ironie.

    Jun 24, Robert Murphy rated it really liked it. I feel bad writing a review since I only read 9 of the 30 articles, but I don't speak French yet! Her statistics are taken from a corpus of Cicero Att. Because of some exceptions for reasons of emphasis, she reiterates the idea found in other chapters of the book that both the semantics and pragmatics of the noun phrase are relevant to its word order. The preference for the anteposition of the adjective, and the separation of the adjective from its noun, is clear in this corpus.

    He considers these to be the most significant factors in word order in hexameter poetry for our reading of the text, since these are the elements which would be picked up by an ancient reader, but not always a modern one. In this chapter, he seeks to create an overarching definition of noun phrases which can include both sets of languages equally, in part by distinguishing synthetic noun phrases of one element, such as a proper noun from analytic noun phrases made up of multiple elements.

    The heavy use of abbreviations made this chapter tough going in places, though those with an interest in generative and functional grammar will find some thought-provoking arguments. While many apparent examples of this phenomenon can be explained away, some striking examples remain. Ripoll puts these into various categories: Bodelot seeks to show how morphological, syntactic and semantic features in the sentence affect the relationship between substantive clauses and their associated nouns or noun phrases — definining the technical terms used could have made this chapter more accessible to a wider readership.

    Anna Orlandini and Paolo Poccetti give us the only chapter with a truly diachronic approach to Latin noun phrases: Orlandini and Poccetti analyse these as noun phrases, on the basis that they can be replaced with an adjective, e.
