- Religion romaine
- Religion et politique
- Cicéron Sujet RERO - forme:[Actes de congrès] Note:
This book gathers eight papers devoted to specific aspects of Cicero's engagement with Roman religion, and seeks to make a wider contribution to the understanding of Cicero's work as historical evidence. By engaging with religion as a fundamental factor of social cohesion and political stability, both in his theoretical works and his speeches, Cicero shaped a wide-ranging and ambitious discourse around themes and images that were firmly located in first-century BCE Rome. His contribution also proved very influential in the centuries to come.0The volume focuses on the relationship between law, religion, and religious authority in Cicero; the interplay between divine images, ritual contexts, and the conceptualization of the divine; Cicero's construction of a Greek deity for a Roman audience; the role of religious elements in the shaping of a Roman political identity; the tension between 'natural law' and Roman pietas; the problem of divine and human foresight; the relationship between theoretical views of the gods and late Republican public cult; and the reception, use, and readaptation of Ciceronian theology in the English Enlightenment

The deaths of the Republic : imagery of the body politic in Ciceronian Rome / Brian Walters
Auteur:Walters, Brian Edition:
First edition. Editeur:
Oxford ; New York : Oxford University Press
xiv, 158 pages : illustrations ; 22 cm
Sujet RERO:Littérature latine
- Politique et gouvernement
- Science politique
- Corps humain
- République romaine (Rome 509 av. J.-C.-30 av. J.-C.)
- Rome Description:
"This book examines imagery of the body politic in the works of Cicero and his contemporaries and explores its impact on the politics of Rome in the first century BCE. Emphasis throughout is on the ideological underpinnings of such images and their uses as a means of persuasion. Chapter 1 reads the well-known fable of Menenius Agrippa as a paradigm for late-republican invocations of the embodied state. Chapter 2 examines imagery of disease and healing, focusing especially on connections with political violence. Chapter 3 considers claims of wounding and mutilating the republic. Chapter 4 explores references to the body politic's demise in invective and consolations. Political oratory provides much of the evidence of these chapters, but is everywhere supplemented by other sources. Chapter 5 historicizes prior discussions by focusing on a single controversial image, that of murdering the fatherland, in the aftermath of Caesar's assassination"

- Cicéron. Academica Sujet LCSH:Skepticism
- Cicero, Marcus Tullius. -- Academica Description:
La 4e de couv. indique : "The School of Doubt' conducts a close philological and philosophical reading of Cicero's 'Academica', a fragmentary work on sense-perception and Academic history written in the wake of Caesar's victory in the civil wars (45 BCE). Focusing in turn on the author's letters discussing the process of composition, the historiographical treatment of the Platonic tradition and the critical exploration of philosophical doubt, this volume presents Cicero as an original and sophisticated historian of philosophy and a radical figure in Western skeptical thought.0Widely misconstrued as a technical treatise and a mere chronicle of the Greek debates on which it draws, the 'Academica' here emerges as a key work in the evolution of Ciceronian philosophy and of ancient skepticism - and one that responds directly to the disintegration of Republican Rome."
