The Africans who came to ancient Greece and Italy participated in an important chapter of classical history. Although evidence indicated that the alien dark- and black-skinned people were of varied tribal and geographic origins, the Greeks and Romans classified many of them as Ethiopians. In an effort to determine the role of black people in ancient civilization, Mr. Snowden examines a broad span of Greco-Roman experience--from the Homeric era to the age of Justinian--focusing his attention on the Ethiopians as they were known to the Greeks and Romans. The author dispels unwarranted generalizations about the Ethiopians, contending that classical references to them were neither glorifications of a mysterious people nor caricatures of rare creatures. Mr. Snowden has probed literary, epigraphical, papyrological, numismatic, and archaeological sources and has considered modern anthropological and sociological findings on pertinent racial and intercultural problems. He has drawn directly upon the widely scattered literary evidence of classical and early Christian writers and has synthesized extensive and diverse material. Along with invaluable reference notes, Mr. Snowden has included over 140 illustrations which depict the Negro as the Greeks and Romans conceived of him in mythology and religion and observed him in a number of occupations--as servant, diplomat, warrior, athlete, and performer, among others. Presenting an exceptionally comprehensive historical description of the first major encounter of Europeans with dark and black Africans, Mr. Snowden found that the black man in a predominantly white society was neither romanticized nor scorned--that the Ethiopian in classical antiquity was considered by pagan and Christian without prejudice.

A l'heure où la critique du storytelling bat son plein, où l'on nous met en garde contre les pratiques de fictionnalisation du réel à des fins politiques et idéologiques, il n'est sans doute pas inutile de revenir sur l'impact des représentations de l'acte de raconter telles qu'elles peuvent apparaître au sein de la fiction. Qu'elles soient manifestes comme dans le film de Welles Une histoire immortelle, ou bien discrètes comme dans la nouvelle de Melville Bartleby, ou dans Le Bruit et la fureur relu au travers de cet autre roman de Faulkner qu'est Absalon, Absalon !, les multiples modalités de la mise en abyme déterminent toujours notre lecture. Loin de refermer l'oeuvre sur elle-même, le récit spéculaire nous permet de faire une expérience réelle du roman. Car, ce que l'on considère comme un procédé parmi d'autres existe en puissance dans tous les textes et constitue ainsi le plus parfait instrument de lecture.

Roman Artefacts And Society

In this book, Ellen Swift uses design theory, previously neglected in Roman archaeology, to investigate Roman artefacts in a new way, making a significant contribution to both Roman social history, and our understanding of the relationships that exist between artefacts and people. Based on extensive data collection and the close study of artefacts from museum collections and archives, the book examines the relationship between artefacts, everyday behaviour, and experience. The concept of 'affordances'-features of an artefact that make possible, and incline users towards, particular uses for functional artefacts-is an important one for the approach taken. This concept is carefully evaluated by considering affordances in relation to other sources of evidence, such as use-wear, archaeological context, the end-products resulting from artefact use, and experimental reconstruction. Artefact types explored in the case studies include locks and keys, pens, shears, glass vessels, dice, boxes, and finger-rings, using material mainly drawn from the north-western Roman provinces, with some material also from Roman Egypt. The book then considers how we can use artefacts to understand particular aspects of Roman behaviour and experience, including discrepant experiences according to factors such as age, social position, and left- or right-handedness, which are fostered through artefact design. The relationship between production and users of artefacts is also explored, investigating what particular production methods make possible in terms of user experience, and also examining production constraints that have unintended consequences for users. The book examines topics such as the perceived agency of objects, differences in social practice across the provinces, cultural change and development in daily practice, and the persistence of tradition and social convention. It shows that design intentions, everyday habits of use, and the constraints of production processes each contribute to the reproduction and transformation of material culture.

Light As Experience And Imagination From Paleolithic To Roman Times

This book is an interdisciplinary synthesis and interpretation about the experience of light as revealed in a wide range of art and literature from Paleolithic to Roman times. Humanistic in spirit and in its handling of facts, it marshals a substantial body of scholarship to develop an explication of light as a central, even dramatic, reality of human existence and experience in diverse cultural settings. David S. Herrstrom underscores our intimacy with light—not only its constant presence in our life but its insinuating character. Focusing on our encounters with light and ways of making sense of these, this book is concerned with the personal and cultural impact of light, exploring our resistance to and acceptance of light. Its approach is unique. The book’s true subject is the individual’s relationship with light, rather than the investigation of light’s essential nature. It tells the story of light seducing individuals down through the ages. Consequently, it is not concerned with the “progress” of scientific inquiries into the physical properties and behavior of light (optical science), but rather with subjective reactions to it as reflected in art (Paleolithic through Roman), architecture (Egyptian, Grecian, Roman), mythology and religion (Paleolithic, Egyptian), and literature (e.g., Akhenaten, Plato, Aeschylus, Lucretius, John the Evangelist, Plotinus, and Augustine). This book celebrates the complexity of our relation to light’s character. No individual experience of light is “truer” than any other; none improves on any previous experience of light’s “tidal pull” on us. And the wondrous variety of these encounters has yielded a richly layered tapestry of human experience. By its broad scope and interdisciplinary approach, this pioneering book is without precedent.

"Je suis sorti de la tranchée et tout de suite ses yeux m'ont fixé : deux prunelles de cendre. C'était une chèvre, une pauvre chèvre que nous n'avions pas vue, enchaînée sur la plaine, face au pylône et à la bombe. Un chevreau semblait s'abriter derrière elle, sur ses pattes tremblantes. Tous deux étaient comme cuits. J'ai abandonné mon compteur, et la chèvre s'est mise à hurler. Le chevreau était tombé sous elle. Il y avait ce cri, mécanique, sans être, un cri à nous rendre fous. Pour ce cri, j'aurais renoncé à la France." Avril 1961, dans le désert algérien. A trois kilomètres de ce point inconnu, une tour de cinquante mètres porte une bombe atomique. Le jeune soldat qui parle, accompagné d'une petite patrouille, participe à une expérience. Il est un cobaye. C'est cette zone d'intensité extrême que nous livre Christophe Bataille. Face à l'histoire et à la mort, il reste les mots, les sensations, la douceur du grand départ puis la lumière.
