Caesar Augustus promoted a modest image of himself as the first among equals (princeps), a characterization that was as popular with the ancient Romans as it is with many scholars today. Paul Rehak argues against this impression of humility and suggests that, like the monarchs of the Hellenistic age, Augustus sought immortality—an eternal glory gained through deliberate planning for his niche in history while flexing his existing power. Imperium and Cosmos focuses on Augustus’s Mausoleum and Ustrinum (site of his cremation), the Horologium-Solarium (a colossal sundial), and the Ara Pacis (Altar to Augustan Peace), all of which transformed the northern Campus Martius into a tribute to his major achievements in life and a vast memorial for his deification after death. Rehak closely examines the artistic imagery on these monuments, providing numerous illustrations, tables, and charts. In an analysis firmly contextualized by a thorough discussion of the earlier models and motifs that inspired these Augustan monuments, Rehak shows how the princeps used these on such an unprecedented scale as to truly elevate himself above the common citizen.

This book explores Virgil's poetic and mythical transformation of Roman imperialist ideology. The Romans saw an analogy between the ordered workings of the natural universe and the proper functioning of their own expanding empire; between orbis and urbs. In combining this cosmic imperialism with the military and panegyrical themes proper to epic, Virgil draws on a number of traditions: the notion that the ideal poet is a cosmologer; the use of allegory to extract natural-philosophical truths from mythology and poetry (especially Homer); the poetic use of hyperbole and the 'universal expression'. Virgil's imagination is dominated by the cosmological poem of Lucretius; the Aeneid, like the De Rerum Natura, is a poem about the universe and how man should live in it, but Virgil's constant inversion of Lucretian values makes of him an anti-Lucretius. Recent criticism has tended to stress the pessimistic and private sides of the Aeneid; but any easy conclusion that the poet was at heart anti-Augustan is precluded by the depth and detail with which he develops the imperialist themes discussed in this book.

Macht will ein Imperium „Pompeji“ war ein internationaler Triumph. Robert Harris versteht es wie kein Zweiter, die Antike mit Leben zu füllen und die Gegenwart in einem Roman zu beschreiben, der vor zweitausend Jahren spielt. Im Mittelpunkt von „Imperium“ steht ein gerissener, mit allen Wassern gewaschener Anwalt und geborener Machtpolitiker: Marcus Tullius Cicero. Ein unbekannter junger Anwalt – hochintelligent, sensibel und enorm ehrgeizig – betritt das Zentrum der Macht. Er hat nur ein Ziel: Er will nach ganz oben. Der Fall eines Kunstsammlers, der vor der Willkür eines skrupellosen und gierigen Gouverneurs fliehen muss, kommt ihm da gerade recht. Der Gouverneur hat einflussreiche und gefährliche Freunde im Senat, und sollte der Anwalt den Fall gewinnen, würde er die gesamte alte Machtclique zerschlagen. An die Niederlage wagt er nicht zu denken, sie könnte ihn das Leben kosten. Eine einzige Rede kann über sein Schicksal und die Zukunft einer Weltmacht entscheiden, doch seine gefährlichste Waffe ist das Wort. Die Weltmacht am Scheideweg ist Rom. Der Name des jungen Anwalts ist Marcus Tullius Cicero, Außenseiter, Philosoph, brillanter Redner und der erste Politiker modernen Stils. Ein topaktueller Roman im historischen Gewand.

What did the ancient Greeks eat and drink? What role did migration play? Why was emperor Nero popular with the ordinary people but less so with the upper classes? Why (according to ancient authors) was Oedipus ('with swollen foot') so called? For over 2,000 years the civilizations of ancient Greece and Rome have captivated our collective imagination and provided inspiration for so many aspects of our lives, from culture, literature, drama, cinema, and television to society, education, and politics. Many of the roots of the way life is lived in the West today can be traced to the ancient civilizations, not only in politics, law, technology, philosophy, and science, but also in social and family life, language, and art. Beautiful illustrations, clear and authoritative entries, and a useful chronology and bibliography make this Companion the perfect guide for readers interested in learning more about the Graeco-Roman world. As well as providing sound information on all aspects of classical civilization such as history, politics, ethics, morals, law, society, religion, mythology, science and technology, language, literature, art, and scholarship, the entries in the Companion reflect the changing interdisciplinary aspects of classical studies, covering broad thematic subjects, such as race, nationalism, gender, ethics, and ecology, confirming the impact classical civilizations have had on the modern world.

While supporting the cosmopolitan pursuit of a world that respects all rights and interests, James D. Ingram believes political theorists have, in their approach to this project, compromised its egalitarian and emancipatory principles. Focusing on recent debates without losing sight of cosmopolitanism's ancient and Enlightenment roots, Ingram confronts the philosophical difficulties of defending universal ideals and the implications for ethics and political theory. In morality as in politics, theorists have generally focused first on discovering universal values and second on their implementation. Ingram argues that only by prioritizing the development and articulation of universal values through political action in the fight for freedom and equality can theorists do justice to these efforts and cosmopolitanism's universal vocation. Only by proceeding from the local to the global, from the bottom up rather than from the top down, on the basis of political practice rather than moral ideals, can we salvage moral and political universalism. Ingram provides the clearest, most systematic account yet of this schematic reversal and its radical possibilities.

There is no other work of Greco-Roman poetry that has evoked such dissonant reactions as Lucan's Bellum Civile. Whereas the condemnation of the epic had reached its climax in the 19th century, the 20th century saw its gradual rehabilitation. Now the time has come for a contemporary re-assessment of the fascinating epic on Rome's maior civil war. The essay-collection presents 18 articles by renowned scholars of the maior scientific communities (Australia/UK/USA, Belgium/The Netherlands, Germany/Switzerland), focussing on the relevant issues of modern Lucan-scholarship.

In his civil war epic, the Roman poet Lucan draws extensively on his literary forbears. This study fills a gap in the research by going beyond the boundaries of language and genre to examine his reception of Greek literature, especially Attic tragedy and Hellenistic poetry. It reveals the importance of mythical and literary models, such as the Trojan War and the fratricidal war around Thebes, for Lucan’s epic formulation of the civil war theme.
