LacusCurtius — Smith's Dictionary of Greek and Roman Antiquities LacusCurtius Educational Resource: a Selection of Articles from A 19th-Century Classical Encyclopaedia William Smith, D.C.L., LL.D.: A Dictionary of Greek and Roman Antiquities John Murray, London, 1875. This single volume, of 1294 pages in rather fine print set in two columns and amounting to well over a million words, is a treasure trove of information on the ancient world, and was for many years a standard reference work, carried thru several British and American editions from the first in 1842 to the last in 1890‑91 with relatively few alterations. Like any encyclopedia of course, Smith's Dictionary should be used with caution: it is a secondary source, the field covered is very extensive, many authors are involved, and even when it was published could not for each article have represented the latest work. Finally, these articles need to be read not only with a grain of salt, but sometimes lightly and with a few grains of common sense as well. About those bullets: Blue: relax.

Classics in Contemporary Culture Alejandro Amenabar's film about Hypatia, Agora, is opening in the US -- if anyone notices a film about Late Antique Alexandria and its mix of religion and violence, the movie is certain to evoke Pavlovian culture-war reactions from all and sundry...In any case, here's an interview with the star, Rachel Weisz, stressing the theme of opposition to religious intolerance / fundamentalism, and noting (?!) that basically ancient science and acting are interchangeable -- neither one involves telescopes (I know: Totally unfair!): "What's remarkable is that everything she was doing was imaginary because she was working in the time before the telescope. And here's a thoughtful essay by Nathan Schneider, generally against the portrayal offered, although appreciative of the lack of sex / the contrast with (e.g.) The best-developed character in Agora, held as a foil against the street riots, is the sky.

Primary History - Romans Roman Army Part I The Roman Army in the Late Republic and Early Empire NB: Over the centuries, the Roman army changed and developed, and conditions often differed somewhat depending on the provinces where the troops were fighting and stationed. The following information is intended to give a generic picture of military organization, armor, weaponry, etc. during the late Republic and early Empire. LEGIONS (legio): The legion was the basic unit of Rome's standing army of career soldiers, the legionaries, who were all Roman citizens and fought primarily as foot-soldiers (infantry). Though the exact numbers of men in a legion varied, the basic pattern of organization remained the same. A Modern “Legion”: British Schoolchildren Visit a Roman Fort CAMPS (castra): As Josephus notes, the Roman camps were always constructed according to a set pattern, laid out like a city bisected by two streets leading to four gates.

Michelet : Visite du louvre - Sculpture L'histoire d'Anchise, le père d'Enée Selon la tradition, Anchise se fit remarquer par la déesse Aphrodite (Vénus) alors qu'il gardait un troupeau sur le mont Ida. Aphrodite lui fit croire qu'elle était mortelle, ne lui révélant la vérité qu'après s'être unie avec lui: la déesse lui annonça alors qu'elle lui donnerait un fils qui serait élevé par les nymphes .Elle lui fit promettre de taire cette union mais un jour, Anchise, ivre, oublia sa parole; furieux d'une telle union, Zeus le punit en le frappant d'un éclair qui le rendit boiteux. Il meurt sur le mont Ida où son fils lui élèvera un tombeau. Enée: de l'Iliade à l'Enéide Fils de Anchise et de Vénus (Aphrodite pour les Grecs), Enée est l'un des troyens évoqués par Homère dans l'Iliade. Quand il se blesse gravement, c'est sa mère qui le sauve avant d'être elle même attaquée par Diomède. Du texte à la sculpture La statue représente Enée, habillé en guerrier, avec une cuirasse et un casque.

NovaRoma Classical Reception Studies Network The Classical Reception Studies Network (CRSN) aims to facilitate the exchange of information and to encourage collaboration in the field of classical reception studies by bringing together departments and individuals from across the world. Classical Reception Studies is the inquiry into how and why the texts, images and material cultures of Ancient Greece and Rome have been received, adapted, refigured, used and abused in later times and often other places. For more information on the Network and its history, please go to the Network page which explains who we are and what we do. The Events section lists current and future Classical Reception conferences, seminars, workshops and performances. "Happy Birthday, everyone - and many happy returns!" "Congratulations to the Classical Reception Studies Network on the first ten years, which have done so much to make the UK an exciting centre for the study of all aspects of classical reception.

Roman infantry tactics, strategy and battle formations Roman infantry tactics refers to the theoretical and historical deployment, formation and maneuvers of the Roman infantry from the start of the Roman Republic to the fall of the Western Roman Empire. The article first presents a short overview of Roman training. Roman performance against different types of enemies is then analyzed. The focus below is primarily on Roman tactics - the "how" of their approach to battle, and how it stacked up against a variety of opponents over time. Evolution[edit] Roman military tactics and strategy evolved from that typical of a small tribal host seeking local hegemony, to massive operations encompassing a world empire. Some key phases of this evolution throughout Rome's military history would include:[2] Equipment and training[edit] See detailed articles for more information on equipment, individual Legions and structure Training[edit] Equipment[edit] Individual weapons, personal equipment and haulage[edit] Artillery package[edit] Force structure[edit]

Les bustes de la République romaine - Art, Archéologie et Antiquité Après mon billet sur les empereurs, leurs petits effets capillaires et leur représentation souvent « hellénisante » , il est un autre genre qui m’a toujours intéressé, bien antérieur à celui des portraits impériaux. Il concerne des personnalités moins prestigieuses bien qu’aristocrates de Rome (de la nobilitas) ou notables de petites cités italiennes. Ce sont les bustes réalisés durant la République romaine. Le rôle des portraits dans le culte des morts A l’origine de ces portraits on trouve les images de cire des défunts ancêtres, conservés à l’intérieur des demeures et sortis à de rares occasions, comme par exemple, lors d’un nouveau décès. Tombe des Haterii, première moitié du 2ème ap. Dans ce cas, le mort patricien est lavé, parfumé, parfois embaumé et revêtu de ses plus beaux atours, puis exposé dans l’atrium, les pieds tournés vers la porte, entouré de torches et lampes, qui rappelle le monde des ténèbres, le monde des morts. Masque de cire – Fille – Gaule romaine Lucius J.

Antonine Wall Construction began in 142 AD at the order of Roman Emperor Antoninus Pius, and took about 12 years to complete. Pressure from the Caledonians may have led Antoninus to send the empire's troops further north. The wall was protected by 16 forts with a number of small fortlets between them; troop movement was facilitated by a road linking all the sites known as the Military Way. The soldiers who built the wall commemorated the construction and their struggles with the Caledonians in a number of decorative slabs, twenty of which still survive. Location and construction[edit] The Antonine Wall, looking east, from Bar Hill between Twechar and Croy A near infra-red kite aerial photograph of Kinneil Roman Fortlet, near Bo'ness at the eastern end of the Antonine Wall. In addition to the line of the Wall itself there are a number of coastal forts both in the East (e.g. Abandonment[edit] Post-Roman history[edit] Grim's Dyke[edit] World Heritage status[edit] Historic Scotland[edit] Mapping the wall[edit]

"Video" aussi, c'est latin - Éditions RAGAMI Alors que RAGAMI travaille sur l'anthologie Réécritures #1 qui n'a toujours pas de titre définitif, pour les vacances de Noël, voici une liste de (youtubeurs) vidéastes pour savourer l'Antiquité avec goût : L'histoire barbue de Nota Bene : Mythologies grecques (mais aussi Pourquoi César, et même Star Wars et mythologies... sorti aujourd'hui) Confessions d'Histoire et les dessous des personnages célèbres : la Guerre des Gaules Péplums variés déterrés par le Fossoyeur de films : la mythologie au cinéma Pour finir en remontant avant le latin avec Linguisticae : les langues indo-européennes La vidéothèque d'Alexandrie qui fait allusion à l'Antiquité dans son titre même, est un groupement de vidéastes culturels qui vise à faire partager le savoir sans façons, de quelque horizon qu'il soit.
