Written In Stone: Seg Xxxiv 1581, Its Viewers, And Their Perspectives, Robert Yancey 2019 William & Mary

Written In Stone: Seg Xxxiv 1581, Its Viewers, And Their Perspectives, Robert Yancey

Undergraduate Honors Theses

This paper identifies a standard format used by towns or poleis to honor particularly elite members of Greco-Roman Egypt and labels this formula as 'ΗΠΟΛΙΣ'. This paper then argues that while inscription SEG XXXIV 1581 is not typical for the ΗΠΟΛΙΣ formula in Egypt, it utilizes the ΗΠΟΛΙΣ formula. The use of this formula puts SEG XXXIV 1581 into conversation not only with ΗΠΟΛΙΣ inscriptions in Koptos but also with ΗΠΟΛΙΣ inscriptions in Alexandria. Literate viewers from Koptos itself would have been seen its variance from most Koptite inscriptions and its formulaic similarity to a small group of inscriptions found ...


"This Great Theatre Of Nature": Henry Fielding And The Ancient Comic Stage, Stephen Ryan 2019 William & Mary

"This Great Theatre Of Nature": Henry Fielding And The Ancient Comic Stage, Stephen Ryan

Undergraduate Honors Theses

Henry Fielding’s concept of the “comic Epic-Poem in Prose” helped to establish Joseph Andrews and Tom Jones as foundational texts in the history of the novel in English, but scholars have largely overlooked the influence of Fielding’s deep knowledge of ancient Greek and Roman comedy on the development of the genre of the novel in Britain. By comparing the plays of Aristophanes, Plautus, and Terence with Fielding’s novels, it becomes clear that these ancient playwrights contributed to the slapstick style of humor, sharp satirical wit, and emphasis on reconciliation present throughout Joseph Andrews andTom Jones, and ...


Learning Church: Catechisms And Lay Participation In Early New England Congregationalism, Roberto O. Flores de Apodaca 2019 University of South Carolina

Learning Church: Catechisms And Lay Participation In Early New England Congregationalism, Roberto O. Flores De Apodaca

Theses and Dissertations

This thesis analyzes catechisms and catechizing in New England religious culture from 1628-1662. These question and answer documents were intended for comprehensive religious instruction of both children and adults, and thus provide a direct window into the worldview of New England laity. In the hands of ordinary men and women, catechisms became a profound tool of religious and ecclesiastical empowerment. This thesis argues that catechisms held an indispensable role in equipping early New England men and women to participate in the government and rituals of their nascent Congregational churches. Ministers wrote catechisms to equip laity for their responsibilities of structuring ...

Aristotle's Quarrel With Socrates: Friendship In Political Thought, John Boersma 2019 Louisiana State Univer

Aristotle's Quarrel With Socrates: Friendship In Political Thought, John Boersma

LSU Doctoral Dissertations

Friendship played an outsized role in ancient political thought in comparison to medieval and modern political philosophies. Most modern scholarship has paid relatively little attention to the role of friendship in ancient political philosophy. Recently, however, scholars are increasingly beginning to investigate classical conceptions of friendship. My dissertation joins this growing interest by examining the importance of friendship in the political thought of Socrates and Aristotle. Specifically, I analyze the divergent approaches that Socrates and Aristotle take to politics and trace these distinct approaches to their differing conceptions of friendship. Through an examination of two Platonic dialogues—the Lysis and ...


Orpheus And Women On 5th Century Bce Vases, Samantha Burton 2019 Loyola Marymount University and Loyola Law School

Orpheus And Women On 5th Century Bce Vases, Samantha Burton

Honors Thesis

In Greek myth, Orpheus is a musician with incredible talent, his music so beautiful that it charmed the beasts and guardians of the Underworld, and eventually Persephone and Hades themselves, into allowing his dead wife Eurydice to returning to the living realm. When he defied their singular rule of not turning to look back at her and she was then banished to the Underworld forever, Orpheus returned to the mortal realm, began to worship Helios instead of Dionysus, and was promptly killed by Thracian women sent by Dionysus. Alternatively, it has been told that Orpheus, wrought with heartbreak, could not ...


Quidlibet Audendi Potestas: Deviant Word Order In The Odes Of Horace, Henry R. Bauer 2019 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Quidlibet Audendi Potestas: Deviant Word Order In The Odes Of Horace, Henry R. Bauer

Honors Theses, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

This senior thesis, entitled "Quidlibet audendi potestas: Deviant Word Order in the Odes of Horace," represents a sort of dry run for a method of answering empirically the questions of whether, how, and how much the word order of Latin verse systematically differs from that of Latin prose. The present project consists of comparing the attested word orders in Horace for cases of two frequent grammatical phenomena – clause-initial verbs and premodifier hyperbaton – against the prose data presented by A.M. Devine and L.D. Stephens in their monograph, Latin Word Order: Structured Meaning and Information. Devine and Stephens' work was ...

The Turkic Vocabulary Of Alisher Navoi's Works Is A Source Of Enrichment Of The Uzbek Language, Quronbekov Axmadjon Quronbekovich

Oriental studies

Currently, there is a rapid process of globalization in all spheres of social life, including in the field of national languages and mercilessly endangers the leveling of national cultures and values. In such conditions, each nation should take care of the future of its language and strive to preserve the social function of the language. Otherwise, in the near future, both the language (the culture) and the nation itself will lose their national identity and even existence. Language is the key to all scientific and technological progress. To this end, we must collect the vocabulary of all the works of ...

A Typological And Iconographic Analysis Of Macedonian Burials In The Classical And Early Hellenistic Period (5th-Mid 3rd Centuries Bce), Ann Haverkost 2019 University of Nebraska at Omaha

A Typological And Iconographic Analysis Of Macedonian Burials In The Classical And Early Hellenistic Period (5th-Mid 3rd Centuries Bce), Ann Haverkost

Student Research and Creative Activity Fair

Much of what we know of ancient cultures comes from burials, and this is also true in Macedonia. Yet, little is known about Classical Macedonian culture outside of the nobility, and even less is known about what they thought of death. This project analyzes funerary images from Macedonia during the Classical and early Hellenistic periods (5th- mid 3rd century BCE) with three questions in mind. First, are there specific motifs that are more prevalent? Second, is there a change in motifs over time? Third, how are these images similar to and different from images in Greece and Thrace ...

Rough Cilicia Archaeological Survey: Report Of The 2011 Season, Part Two, Nicholas K. Rauh, Matthew Dillon 2019 Purdue University

Rough Cilicia Archaeological Survey: Report Of The 2011 Season, Part Two, Nicholas K. Rauh, Matthew Dillon

Rough Cilicia Archaeological Survey Project, 1996-2011

The 2011 season of the Rough Cilicia Archaeological Survey Project was conducted between July 21 and August 12 2011. During the 2011 season of the Rough Cilicia Archaeological Survey, pedestrian survey was secondary to the main task of obtaining pollen and carbon samples from geormorphic trenches in the Taseli Plateau. If time allowed, the team walked limited transects in the vicinity of the trenches themselves. Toward the end of our stay at Gökgözlük Yayla we devoted one full day of pedestrian survey in the vicinity of Sugözü Yayla where sherd scatters had been observed in 2007, when the team excavated ...

Rough Cilicia Archaeological Survey: Report Of The 2008 Season, Nicholas K. Rauh

Rough Cilicia Archaeological Survey Project, 1996-2011

The 2008 season of the Rough Cilicia Archaeological Survey Project was conducted between July 18 and August 5, 2008. The research agenda of the 2008 season consisted of off-site pedestrian survey in the highland canyon of the Biçkici River, more specifically, the terraced agricultural terrain in the village of Karatepe. The scattered communities (mahalleler) of Karatepe extend along the lower slopes of the semicircular canyon (approximately 8 km across) that encloses the Biçkici watershed. At Sugozu Yayla the crest of the canyon stands at 1700m above sea level (asl). At the base of canyon lies a long flat alluvial terrace ...
