Pełny opis:

The chronological and topographical framework of the course shall be delimited by Graeco-Roman and Roman Antiquity (Rome State and Society from regal period until Byzantine times as well as nations and states of the conquered Greek oikumene). On this background we shall try analyzing the role of a woman in the ancient society. We will take a look at her duties, roles, rights varying according to her different social standing (slave-maid, prostitute, priestess-nun, matron), try to observe the changes undergoing in the Roman mentality under the influence of different cultural tendencies and customs (especially vis-?-vis conquered Hellenistic societies, Egypt, new religious movements: mysteries, Christianity, Judaism). Finally we will try to confront the ideal preached by rhethors and moralists with the reality of every day-life and the actual legal standing of women. One of the main issues will be obviously marriage as it illustrates well the legal and social role of women in ancient societies. The course will also allow the students to learn how to deal with different sources: legal, literary, iconographic, and last but not least documentary. The course is therefore intended to be a workshop
