Le présent volume ambitionne de prendre en compte sur un temps long depuis la naissance de Ia médecine occidentale de tradition hippocratique en Grèce au Ve siècle avant notre ère jusqu'aux dernières avancées des neurosciences, Ies principaux aspects culturels, philosophiques, psychologiques, sociaux et religieux susceptibles d'entrer en jeu dans Ie processus de guérison. Il s'inscrit donc à I'intersection de la médecine et de Ia philosophie, mais aussi de l'histoire des sciences, des idées et des religions. En s'intéressant aux différentes médecines dites « rationnelles » et « alternatives », il s'efforce notamment d'éclairer Ie processus cognitif à I'origine de Ia prise de décision par Ie médecin et le ròle de Ia raison et de la religion dans la réussite ou I'échec du traitement pour le patient.

Abstract: Antichisti, storici della medicina, medici e operatori nel campo sanitario, provenienti da vari atenei d'Italia ed Europa, si interrogano qui sull'importanza del regime di salute. Vengono indagati il rapporto tra salute e malattia, il ruolo dell'alimentazione, dell'ambiente, dello sport, dello stile di vita, dei comportamenti, della comunicazione, della terapia e della farmacologia. Il dialogo vivace, condotto con metodi e prospettive diverse, permette al lettore di trovare inattesi punti di convergenza fra il mondo antico e quello moderno e contemporaneo. La medicina da sempre infatti è teatro di paradigmi spesso concorrenti e a volte ricorrenti. Quella complessità di regole e di relazioni che in Ippocrate definisce il regime di salute trova una corrispondenza nel riconoscimento dell'interazione fra ambiente e assetto genetico individuale nella scienza contemporanea.

C. Rosillo-López, Public Opinion and Politics in the Late Roman Republic

Cristina Rosillo-López, Public Opinion and Politics in the Late Roman Republic, Cambridge, 2017.

Éditeur : Cambridge University Press
280 pages
ISBN : 9781107145078
75 £


This book investigates the working mechanisms of public opinion in Late Republican Rome as a part of informal politics. It explores the political interaction (and sometimes opposition) between the elite and the people through various means, such as rumours, gossip, political literature, popular verses and graffiti. It also proposes the existence of a public sphere in Late Republican Rome and analyses public opinion in that time as a system of control. By applying the spatial turn to politics, it becomes possible to study sociability and informal meetings where public opinion circulated. What emerges is a wider concept of the political participation of the people, not just restricted to voting or participating in the assemblies.

Argues that public opinion existed in the Late Roman Republic and analyses its working mechanisms
Explores a wider approach to the political participation of the people
Applies the spatial turn to politics in order to locate informal politics in its actual archaeological setting.

Paula Hershkowitz, Prudentius, Spain, and late antique Christianity: poetry, visual culture, and the cult of martyrs, Cambridge, 2017.

Éditeur : Cambridge University Press
xiii, 254 pages
ISBN : 9781107149601

This book provides an innovative approach to the Hispano-Roman Christian poet Prudentius and his poetry. It is a breakthrough in Prudentian scholarship which unifies the differing disciplines of history, archaeology, literature and art history in arguing that Prudentius and his envisaged Spanish audience cannot be fully understood in isolation from their environment in late fourth- and early fifth-century Spain. Paula Hershkowitz focuses on Prudentius' Peristephanon, his collection of verses celebrating the deaths of martyrs, and places these poems within the context of Prudentius' world, uniquely employing material, visual and textual remains as evidence for its religious, social and cultural affiliations. It also draws on this material evidence to contextualise Prudentius' awareness of the significance of the visual as a means of promoting beliefs against the background of this crucial formative period in religious history when many of his Spanish audience were not yet fully committed to the Christian faith.

When we are confronted with a work of art, what is its effect on us? In contrast to post-Enlightenment conceptions, which tend to restrict themselves to aesthetic or discursive responses, the ancient Greeks and Romans often conceived works of art as having a more dynamic effect on their viewers, inspiring them to direct imitation of what they saw represented. This notion of 'mimetic contagion' was a persistent and widespread mode of framing response to art across the ancient world, discernible in both popular and elevated cultural forms, yet deployed differently in various historical contexts; it is only under the specificity of a particular cultural moment's concerns that it becomes most useful as a lens for understanding how that culture is attempting to negotiate the problems of representation.

Grégory Ems et Mathieu Minet (éd.), Les arts poétiques du XIIIe au XVIIe siècle: tensions et dialogue entre théorie et pratique, Turnhout, 2017.

Éditeur : Brepols
Collection : Latinitates 10
338 pages
ISBN : 978-2-503-52991-2
90 €

La notion d'« Art poétique » recouvre une réalité plurielle et protéiforme : les ouvrages ainsi qualifiés se proposent, selon les âges et les contextes, de catégoriser, de normaliser ou de canoniser les pratiques poétiques. Entre la pratique et la théorisation au sens large se jouent dès lors des rapports complexes, qu'interrogent les seize contributions regroupées dans ce volume, où cette problématique est envisagée selon un large spectre de périodes et de langues, mais également dans une perspective pluridisciplinaire.
