In his 1621 New Latin tragedy Athamantis Furor, the French rhetoric teacher and Catholic pastor Jean Portier (Ioannes Porterius) dramatized the misfortunes of the mythic King Athamas. He was heavily influenced by ancient texts. This volume provides a new edition of his play, translates it into German for the first time, and interprets and provides commentary on it, focusing on classical reception.
