Frauen im antiken Sport. Frauen als Oympionikinnen oder by Simone Egger-Krainer

By Simone Egger-Krainer

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Geschichte - Weltgeschichte - Frühgeschichte, Antike, notice: 1,00, Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt (Geschichte), Veranstaltung: Proseminar Freizeit- und Unterhaltungskultur im antiken Rom, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: activity hatte sowohl in der griechischen als auch in der römischen Antike einen hohen Stellenwert. Zwar lag der Schwerpunkt in Griechenland eher auf Leichtathletik und die Römer ergötzen sich lieber an möglichst blutigen Kampfspielen, doch hatten beiden Kulturen gemeinsam, dass sportliche Veranstaltungen eine große Faszination auf die Bevölkerung ausübten.

Die Frage, die ich mir in der folgenden Arbeit nun stellen möchte, ist, inwieweit Frauen an dieser Welt des antiken activities partizipierten. Gab es Frauen als Athletinnen, als Kämpferinnen, als Zuseherinnen? Wenn ja – waren sie eher die Ausnahme oder die Regel? Und used to be bedeutete die Ausübung einer sportlichen Betätigung für eine Frau – hob das ihren prestige oder machte es sie eher zu einer Außenseiterin?

The Sex Lives of Saints: An Erotics of Ancient Hagiography by Virginia Burrus

By Virginia Burrus

Has a repressive morality been the first contribution of Christianity to the background of sexuality? The ascetic issues that pervade historical Christian texts would appear to aid this kind of universal assumption. concentrating on hagiographical literature, Virginia Burrus pursues a clean course of interpretation, arguing that the early money owed of the lives of saints aren't antierotic yet really express a sublimely transgressive "countereroticism" that resists the marital, procreative ethic of sexuality present in different strands of Christian tradition.

Without decreasing the erotics of old hagiography to a unmarried formulation, The intercourse Lives of Saints frames the extensive historic, theological, and theoretical matters at stake in any such revisionist interpretation of ascetic eroticism, with specific connection with the paintings of Michel Foucault and Georges Bataille, David Halperin and Geoffrey Harpham, Leo Bersani and Jean Baudrillard. Burrus for this reason proceeds via shut, performative readings of the earliest Lives of Saints, in general relationship to the overdue fourth and early 5th centuries—Jerome's Lives of Paul, Malchus, Hilarion, and Paula; Gregory of Nyssa's lifetime of Macrina; Augustine's portrait of Monica; Sulpicius Severus's lifetime of Martin; and the marginally later Lives of so-called harlot saints. Queer, s/m, and postcolonial theories are one of the modern discourses that turn out intriguingly resonant with an historical artwork of "saintly" loving that is still, in Burrus's examining, promisingly cellular, diversified, and open-ended.

Aufbau und propagandistische Wirkung der hellenistischen by Thomas Kauf

By Thomas Kauf

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Geschichte - Weltgeschichte - Frühgeschichte, Antike, observe: 1,0, Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen, Veranstaltung: Medien der Selbstdarstellung hellenistischer Herrscher, thirteen Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Im Rahmen dieser Arbeit werden die hellenistischen Herrscherpaläste von Aigai und Pergamon einschließlich ihrer Basileia genauer dargestellt und, soweit dies auf foundation des dürftigen Forschungstandes möglich ist, auf ihre propagandistische Wirkung hin untersucht. Die schriftlichen Quellen sind im Zusammenhang mit den behandelten Palästen nur von sehr begrenztem Nutzen, eine direkte Beschreibung ihrer ist nirgends überliefert. Somit müssen in den meisten Fällen indirekte Aussagen, vornehmlich von Diodor, als foundation für weitergehende Deutungen dienen. Aktuellere Publikationen zu den hellenistischen Herrscherpalästen sind relativ rar, wobei neuere Publikationen hauptsächlich auf der Deutung bestehenden, auch überholten Kartenmaterials und nur selten auf direkter Forschung vor Ort basieren. Mit dem hellenistischen Herrscherpalast als speziellem Forschungsgegenstand befassen sich an aktuellen Publikationen ein Sammelband von Wolfram Hoepfner sowie eine Monografie von Inge Nielsen. Diese beiden Veröffentlichungen bilden zusammen mit der ausführlichen Untersuchung des Palasts von Aigai durch Vera Heermann und der umfassenden Darstellung Pergamons durch den dortigen Grabungsleiter Wolfgang Radt die foundation dieser Hausarbeit, assorted andere Publikationen fließen ergänzend ein.
