Salve Scerio,

I had an essay ready, but as I was suggested to publish it in a periodical (I am preparing it for publication just now), I'm afraid I cannot put it on the internet at this moment.

Re: Small talk

Salvete Amici! I thought I'd start off with some small talk. What are all of you up to this summer? Any plans? Anybody travelling or going on vacations? My work has taken me far from home since March, though I would not call it a vacation by any stretch of the word. It leaves me with little p...

Cupid & Psyche : allegorical aspects

I was just re-reading the Cupid & Psyche story in Apuleius, and I wondered how this assumedly allegorical tale was interpreted in Antiquity by the different schools of philosophy. A search on the internet yielded little. All I found of interest were the following lines in Bulfinch : "The fab...

Thank you for the practicable overview, Mari ! This is the kind of research notes that should be on every classicist's desk. May I suggest to upload it to SVR's website ? I'm planning to draw up a chronological / thematical list of ancient historians and the periods and subjects they cover, so th...

Re: Later date?

Salvete! I see that late Maius is a stressful time for the students among us. Somehow I forgot all about finals and tests. Perhaps a week or two later? Mid June? Still exams then, I'm afraid :( Here in Ghent, the exam period stretches from the end of may to the end of june. Vale, A...

I asked prof. Van Haeperen about the meaning of the word 'pontifex' today and she favours the theory that it would indeed be derived from 'pons' and 'facere' and that the meaning is 'a person who builds bridges with the realm of the gods', i.e. a mediator (especially through sacrifices) between the ...

Salvete,

I'll be having exams too at that time, so I'm still considering whether I will join in or not. If I do, I'd like defend the position of the Peripathetics (Aristoteleans).

Valete,

Salvete! Does anyone here know where (part of) the famous votive inscriptions from the temple of Asklepios in Epidaurus are published (with the dreams and how the people were cured by the god)? I need a book or a part of a series to use as a reference in a footnote. Thanks in advance Valete bene...
