P. H. Matthews, What Graeco-Roman Grammar Was About, Oxford, 2019.

Éditeur : Oxford University Press
256 pages
ISBN : 9780198830115
60 £


This book explains how the grammarians of the Graeco-Romance world perceived the nature and structure of the languages they taught. The volume focuses primarily on the early centuries AD, a time when the Roman Empire was at its peak; in this period, a grammarian not only had a secure place in the ancient system of education, but could take for granted an established technical understanding of language. By delineating what that ancient model of grammar was, P. H. Matthews highlights both those aspects that have persisted to this day and seem reassuringly familiar, such as 'parts of speech', as well as those aspects that are wholly dissimilar to our present understanding of grammar and language. The volume is written to be accessible to students of linguistics from undergraduate level upwards, and assumes no knowledge of Latin or Ancient Greek.

Marcus Terentius Varro (116-27 BC) was the greatest polymath of the Roman republic. During his lifetime he authored several hundred books, and though many of them dealt with linguistic topics, the De lingua Latina ('On the Latin language'), the first large-scale linguistic treatment of Latin, was by far his most significant work. Originally consisting of twenty-five volumes - one introductory, followed by six on etymology, six on morphology, and twelve on syntax - only books 5-10 treating etymology and morphology have come down to us in a more or less complete form, though a fair number of fragments of other volumes have been transmitted in other authors.

Provides a comprehensive inventory of all English translations of the Consolatio of Boethius and supplies basic information on the salient features that interested readers will need in initial phases of research on the large and complex English translation tradition.
This volume is a reference work, organized chronologically in its sections, with a separate entry for each translator's work. The sections are defined by the type of translations they comprise, whether complete, partial, meters only, etc. The plan of the book is encyclopedic in nature: some biographical material is provided for each translator; the translations are described briefly, as are their linguistic peculiarities, their implied audiences, their links with other translations, and their general reception. Sample passages from the translations are provided, and where possible these are two of the most well-known moments in the Consolatio: the appearance of Lady Philosophy, narrated by the Prisoner, and the cosmological hymn to the Deus of the work, sung by Lady Philosophy.

David Rafferty, Provincial Allocations in Rome, Stuttgart, 2019.

243 pages
ISBN : 978-3515121194
54 EUR

This study is the first comprehensive treatment of the provincial allocations system in the late Roman Republic, between the provincial law carried by Gaius Gracchus in 123 BCE and that carried by Pompeius Magnus in 52 BCE. It considers the actual process of allocations, from the Senate's decree of consular and praetorian provinces through to the transfer of command on the ground. Different chapters address the system of allotment (sortitio), the authorisation of troops and funds (ornatio), and the ritual prerequisites for departure, all based solidly on the surviving evidence. An appendix recording the Senate's year-by-year decisions supports this and allows us to see trends in the data.
Since provincial questions were of central importance to the senatorial class, they were the source of many of the political contests which dominate our source record. And at every stage, the institutions shaped the politics. A new picture emerges, of structural conflicts revolving around the relationship between consuls and tribunes. As Rafferty argues, this made the provincial allocations system one of the central causes of Rome's growing political dysfunction in the late Republic.

Macrobius' Kommentar zu Ciceros Somnium Scipionis ist einer der wirkungsmächtigsten Texte der Antike. Entstanden um 430 n. Chr. als philosophische Einführungsschrift eines hochrangigen römischen Politikers für seinen Sohn, wurde er über ein Jahrtausend als Kompendium der neuplatonischen Philosophie, vor allem aber als Kompendium der Traumtheorie, Arithmologie, Astronomie, Geographie und Musiktheorie der Antike gelesen. Friedrich Heberlein legt diesen Kommentar nun erstmals in deutscher Übersetzung vor und macht Macrobius' Text somit einem breiteren Publikum zugänglich – ist Macrobius' Sprache doch weit vom klassischen Latein entfernt. Der beigefügte Lesetext auf der Basis der Ausgabe von Armisen-Marchetti erleichtert zudem eine Überprüfung des Originalwortlautes. Ein einführender Essay aus der Feder des bekannten Platonismusforschers Christian Tornau bietet eine grundlegende Orientierung über den Charakter des Werks.
