Em seis décadas de atividade, entre 1927 e 1987, Arnaldo Dante Momigliano (1908- 1987) publicou mais de setecentos artigos e resenhas, que formam o corpus de sua obra. Em função da opção de Momigliano por estudos de extensão limitada, apresentados na forma de artigos e conferências, sua obra possui um caráter disperso, o que torna difícil uma visualização clara de sua totalidade. Ainda que compilada nos volumes dos Contributi publicados ao longo da vida do historiador (e após sua morte), tal compilação se apresenta problemática. A presente pesquisa visa propor um mapeamento da obra de Momigliano e uma discussão e contextualização da mesma, centrada nos principais focos de sua produção, com ênfase nas questões da história da historiografia e da paz e liberdade no mundo antigo.; In six decades of activity, between 1927 and 1987, Arnaldo Dante Momigliano (1908- 1987) published more than seven hundred articles and reviews, which form the body of his work.

Although compiled in the nine volumes of the Contributi published along the historian's life (and after his death)...

Esta Tese tem como tema a problemática do fim do antigo ethos e o ocaso das ilusões no mundo moderno com base na reflexão de Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837) sobre os seus efeitos nefastos. Tal reflexão considera também a problemática da barbárie moderna e pressupõe, igualmente, as formas anteriores da barbárie: a primitiva e a medieval. Na presente investigação não se retorna à questão da ideia de uma filosofia leopardiana ou de uma proposta de sistema no seu interior, pois não se trata, quer da antiga querela de um Leopardi poeta ou filósofo quer de uma exposição pormenorizada acerca de uma filosofia em Leopardi. Nesta investigação adotam-se as seguintes hipóteses interpretativas: i) o Discorso sopra lo stato presente dei costumi deglitaliani, escrito em 1824, contribui para uma compreensão da análise leopardiana acerca do processo de modernização europeia; ii) o Discorso pressupõe uma nova mudança no desenvolvimento da obra leopardiana, da nova crise ocorrida no seu pensamento em 1824, seguida da nova concepção de natureza, não mais aquela amorosa, mas uma natura matrigna, responsável por todos os males e a infelicidade humana; iii) Leopardi aborda elementos fundamentais das mudanças ocorridas no ethos após o processo de modernização europeu com base em um diagnóstico da situação econômica...

Este trabalho tem por objetivo analisar os usos do mundo antigo, pela História e pela Arqueologia, como forma de estabelecer compreensões do mundo contemporâneo. Propõe uma reflexão acerca do papel do passado nos jogos de estratégia e afirmações identitárias, à medida que percebe os estudos sobre a Antigüidade muito próximos das representações coletivas na contemporaneidade. Parte da premissa de que o saber sobre o passado, sua e escrita e suas leituras, são poderes e geram poderes. Do ponto de vista temático, trata da apropriação do passado gaulês, romano e galo-romano na França durante o Regime de Vichy (1940-1944). Mas trata, também, da inserção do objeto num contexto mais amplo, europeu, na medida em que analisa as instrumentalizações da Antigüidade pelo Nazismo e pelo Fascismo. Aproxima-se do objeto com uma análise das figurações da Gália e dos gauleses na historiografia francesa, principalmente a partir do século XIX. Trata do estatuto dos historiadores ao se relacionarem com os poderes do Estado, especificamente, no caso, de Jérôme Carcopino, notável romanista que foi ministro da educação sob Vichy. Por perceber na sociedade francesa atual uma presença muito marcante da Antigüidade, como forma de legitimação de direitos...

The aim of this research was to analyse the use of olive oil as a means of prevention and treatment of sports injuries in the ancient world. The method adopted was based on a thorough study of Greek and world literature. Writings of major ancient philosophers and physicians such as Hippocrates, Aristotle, Philostratus, and Lucian have been analysed in depth. According to the results, the use of massage, together with olive oil rub, helped to reduce muscle fatigue, to remove lactic acid, and to prevent the occurrence of sports injuries through flexibility provided to the skin of athletes. The therapeutic use of oil in the ancient world was fully recognized; and as a result Athenian athlothetes (sponsors of sporting events) provided free oil to all sport facilities where athletes could make free use of it [1].

This paper identifies two distinctive features of ancient constitutional design that have largely disappeared from the modern world: constitution-making by single individuals and constitution-making by foreigners. We consider the virtues and vices of these features, and argue that under plausible conditions single founders and outsider founders offer advantages over constitution-making by representative bodies of citizens, even in the modern world. We also discuss the implications of adding single founders and outsider founders to the constitutional toolkit by describing how constitutional legitimacy would work, and how constitutional interpretation would be conducted, under constitutions that display either or both of the distinctive features of ancient constitutional design.

Is inequality largely the result of the Industrial Revolution? Or, were pre-industrial incomes and life expectancies as unequal as they are today? For want of sufficient data, these questions have not yet been answered. This paper infers inequality for 14 ancient, pre-industrial societies using what are known as social tables, stretching from the Roman Empire 14 AD, to Byzantium in 1000, to England in 1688, to Nueva España around 1790, to China in 1880 and to British India in 1947. It applies two new concepts in making those assessments - what the authors call the inequality possibility frontier and the inequality extraction ratio. Rather than simply offering measures of actual inequality, the authors compare the latter with the maximum feasible inequality (or surplus) that could have been extracted by the elite. The results, especially when compared with modern poor countries, give new insights in to the connection between inequality and economic development in the very long run.

In conformity with its objective of functioning as a local Government, Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) sought the assistance of the World Bank for the preparation of a City Development Strategy (CDS) for Kathmandu. The various sectoral as well as integrated strategies presented in this document seem to be an overwhelming demand on KMC with its limited manpower and money. However, a CDS is essential if KMC is to focus its development potential. The optimism lies in political leadership, enabling environment and necessary support that will be rendered to KMC from civil society. The vision for Kathmandu stresses the need to develop the valley as administrative, cultural and tourism center. The strategy to move towards that vision through improvement in the overall situation of the KMC, however, is likely to be a long drawn struggle, yet achievable. The urban planning study strongly recommends that Kathmandu should be accorded special status as a capital city and large polluting and manufacturing industries should be discouraged immediately and if possible...

The present study deals with two primary aims; (1) geological, mineralogical, and geochemical investigations of the Deh Hosein, Astaneh, and Nezam Abad mineralizations in the Astaneh-Sarband area, west central Iran, with the aim to understand the characteristics of the occurrences and their conditions of formation, and (2) geochemical investigations on ancient bronze artifacts from Iran and Western Asia in order to compare their characteristics with the high-tin copper ore of Deh Hosein and examine their possible relationship. The Astaneh-Sarband area is located in the northern part of the NW-SE aligned Sanandaj-Sirjan metamorphic belt and consists mainly of Mesozoic schists, Middle Jurassic to Middle Tertiary intrusive rocks and related contact metamorphic aureoles, and pegmatites. Regional metamorphism in the area has reached a peak of greenschist facies, but further metamorphism has occurred locally, associated with granitoid emplacement. Magmatism has produced large felsic to intermediate intrusive bodies along a general northwest trend. The main trend of the faults, fractures and other structural features of the area is NW-SE. The Deh Hosein prospect is mainly hosted by Jurassic meta-sedimentary rocks, which have been intruded by the Astaneh complex. Mineralization continues into the southern part of the Astaneh intrusion. The meta-sedimentary rocks consist of alternating meta-sandstone...

Thesis (PhD) - Indiana University, History, 2007; Modern classicists have examined the function of the Amazon legend in the ancient Greek and Roman worlds for over 150 years, using a variety of methods and theories to explain the popularity and meaning of the warrior women as evidence of matriarchal societies, cultural taboos, and social anxieties, often without historical context. My research deliberately uses a historical approach to test previous conclusions about the Amazons and reveals a dynamic Greek culture where individual authors constantly competed and contributed to the developing legend. I have applied a modified theory of narratology to four specific Greek authors: Herodotus, Diodorus, Strabo, and Plutarch. I explored each author's work on three levels: the story itself (the narrative), how each story fits within each author's similar work (the metanarrative), and how it differs from previous or contemporary variations (the cultural metanarrative). This revealed the dynamic nature of the legend as well as the creativity and motivation of each individual author. Although the Amazons themselves had a specific definition as a tribe of female warriors, different pairings of heroes with Amazons or discussions of imagined Amazon societies allowed ancient authors to use them in a variety of ways. Herodotus broke free from the traditional hero-kills-Amazon legend to address their political meaning. Diodorus returned to the heroic legend but utilized embellished stories to position specific heroes as greater than others. Strabo decried embellishments as evidence of poor scholarship and pointed out contradictions between the variations. Plutarch used specific heroic legends as moral measurements of good leadership. The Amazon legends and these writers' treatment of them are a window upon a changing Greek culture.

The rich cultural heritage of China is an essential touchstone of its collective identity. The country's archaeological sites, historic architecture, expressive arts, cultural landscapes, and ethnic diversity also are treasured around the world. Despite their importance, China's cultural assets are under tremendous pressure due to the country's rapid development, particularly its rapid urbanization. Moreover, rising incomes and mobility have significantly increased domestic tourism, leading to the overdevelopment and deterioration of cultural heritage sites. However, many of China's government officials, conservationists, and community groups have recognized these threats and, over the past several decades, have worked tirelessly to protect their country's cultural heritage. Based on the 12 projects developed under this partnership, this report presents an overview of the project approaches and experiences, takes stock of the challenges, extracts initial lessons learned, and identifies new directions and challenges ahead. The principal audience of the report is national...

The “seeds of disease” theory that emerged in Europe during the Renaissance period was not an entirely novel concept at the time. Humans were aware of the contagious properties of certain afflictions long before it was possible for them to observe the microorganisms responsible for disease transmission, and ancient authors had already speculated about the existence of imperceptible creatures as a cause of illness. This thesis will show that through ancient literary works of every type permeates the recognition of disease contagion not only between humans, but also between animals of the same species, animals of different species and between humans and animals. Chapter One will examine cases of intra-species infection, beginning with those that do not specify precisely the manner in which the illness in question is passed from one being to another. Instances in which particular factors are noted as contributing to the spread of disease will also be presented, followed by examples highlighting the recognition of intra-species infection in animals. Chapter Two will address the three varieties of inter-species infection of which ancient people were evidently aware: zoonosis, anthroponosis, and xenoosis. Chapter Three will explore the prevalent belief among the ancients that uninterred corpses incited pestilences. Chapter Four will discuss ancient views concerning the contamination of drinking water...

A presente proposta de pesquisa se insere em uma problemática atual no campo da História e da Arqueologia sobre o mundo antigo, qual seja o estudo das apropriações modernas da Antiguidade. A uma pretensa objetividade do conhecimento histórico seguiu-se uma reação subjetivista, que coloca no centro de qualquer visão sobre o passado o autor dessa visão, que acaba por interferir diretamente no conteúdo de sua produção. Nesse sentido, a Antiguidade, como campo de pesquisa, passou a ser problematizada por um viés analítico que não a concebe por si mesma, mas levando em conta suas próprias tradições interpretativas, ligadas a diferentes interesses e momentos históricos. Nessa perspectiva, do ponto de vista temático, a pesquisa busca compreender a utilização de referencias do mundo romano pelo governo franquista na Espanha. Mais especificamente, analisa os eventos que ocorreram em torno da comemoração do bimilenário de Augusto, nas cidades de Tarragona e Zaragoza, nos anos de 1939 e 1940, respectivamente. Esse evento adquire uma importância histórica muito grande, quando se intensificam os estudos sobre o governo de Augusto e, ele próprio, é apresentado como o modelo de governante a ser seguido. Busca-se, nesse sentido...

El presente artículo postula algunas reflexiones teóricas e historiográficas sobre los métodos y los procedimientos tanto narrativos como filosóficos leídos en los historiadores de la Antiguedad. También hace, este texto, una revisión historiográfica de las principales corrientes y los principales autores de la ciencia histórica occidental de los tres últimos siglos, proponiendo que acaso el ánimo de originalidad que impulsó a muchos de estos movimientos intelectuales —la filología germánica del siglo XVIII, la Ilustración, el romanticismo, el positivismo, la escuela de Annales, etc.— tuviera un acervo precursor, quizás inconsciente, en el trabajo de historiadores del mundo Antiguo, como en el caso de ese Eutropio al que aquí se traduce del latín.-----This article proposes some theoretical and historiographical thoughts about both narrative and philosophic methods and procedures read in the Ancient historians. A historiographical review of the main currents and authors of the west historic science in the last three centuries is also carried out, proposing that the intent of originality that inspired many of such intellectual movements –18th century Germanic Philology, Enlightenment, Romanticism, Positivism...

Imaginary Lands: Ethnicity, Exoticism, and Narrative in the Ancient Novel

This dissertation is centered around two related questions: How does literature contribute to the creation of identity? How does narrative locate individuals in the world? It studies how both individual and ethnic identity is shaped by the imagined landscapes encountered by the protagonists of the Greek novel over the course of their journeys. In this dissertation, I develop a model for reading the protagonists' travels across the Mediterranean as an integral part of the genre's narrative strategy. I begin by tracing the novels’ conceptual geographies of the Mediterranean world and the relationship between geographical movement and narrative. The core of my project examines three aspects of the imaginary worlds encountered by the novels’ protagonists: exotic animals, the relationship between humans and their natural landscapes, and exotic societies, customs, and religions. My study ends in Meroë, in the tenth and final book of Heliodoros’ Aithiopika. Meroë is a terminus in two senses: located on the edge of the known world, it is the most exotic of any place visited in the extant novels; it also represents the undoing of exoticism. Heliodoros’ novel describes a gradual process in the course of which Meroë becomes a Greek cultural enclave in an alien land...

This article takes up the subject of shared memory and its interaction with landscape, with specific reference to Troy, to Homer's Iliad, and to the tradition of 'pilgrimage' to Troy and its environs that evolved in the ancient world in response to the Trojan War story. Over the course of centuries this particular location on the Hellespont, a Bronze Age site, exercised a particular fascination, thanks to memories-no doubt gravely distorted-of a great siege by combined Greek forces eager to avenge, as legend tells it, the abduction of Helen. A few centuries later, the site became a destination for 'pilgrims' who were eager to see for themselves the landscape of Troy and the Troad and to experience for themselves, physically and emotionally, certain actions that were attributed to the heroes of the so-called Trojan War.

Late Antiquity is now consolidated both as a field of studies and as a historical period. However, from the time of its inception to its “explosion”, to use an expression of Andrea Giardina, this periodization has posed important historiographic questions that remain unexplored. By focusing the attention of scholars and students in general on the continuities between the ancient world and the period that follow it, late Antiquity leaves aside issues that were of crucial importance to traditional historians; some of these issues remain relevant, however, as in the case of the so-called fall of the Roman Empire. In this article, we intend to consider these issues, taking into account the important developments observed in recent decades.; A Antiguidade tardia está hoje consolidada seja como campo de estudos ou como um período histórico. No entanto, desde sua concepção até a sua “explosão”, para usarmos uma expressão de Andrea Giardina, esta periodização colocou questões historiográficas de imensa importância que permanecem pouco exploradas. Ao chamar a atenção de estudiosos e leitores em geral para as continuidades entre o mundo antigo e o período que o seguiu, a Antiguidade tardia deixa de lado importantes questões que eram fundamentais para uma historiografia mais tradicional e que continuam relevantes como o problema da assim chamada queda do Império romano.
