This is a book of quotations and citations that differs from standard books of its kind in a number of important ways. Its main aim is to educate and amuse the reader through great quotations selected on the basis of strict qualitative criteria. The quotations and citations have been arranged in a generally chronological order and they have been provided with copious annotations, explanations, comments and collateral information to make them as meaningful as possible. The book tries to provide an interesting and thought-provoking kaleidoscope of the mind, culture, life and manners of Classical Rome. It endeavors to aid comprehension as much as possible by providing the all-important historical and personal contexts that make quotations and citations come to life. They can thus talk to the reader and can provoke his own responses. Roman culture is one of the most pivotal cultures of the world. Classical Rome had largely assimilated and extended the genius of Greece and has been the cradle, the fertile ground on which Christianity had grown and flourished. It has been the bridge through which an enriched Greco-Roman culture was transmitted both to Western and to Eastern Europe, through the Holy Roman and the Byzantine empires, respectively. It has provided, the basis and inspiration for the flowering of the Renaissance, the Enlightenment and also for the French, the American and the industrial revolutions and for the political, the literary and the scientific advances of the modern world. The influence of Classical Rome on Christianity and hence on the world is much greater than is commonly realized or admitted. Many of the Roman quotations have Greek antecedents and many of the same and other quotations have a quite Christian flavor, mainly as a result of the widespread Stoic philosophy that many Roman writers, teachers and politicians adopted as a form of secular religion, especially during Rome's imperial times. A culture which produced intellectual stars of the luminosity of Terence, Cicero, Lucretius, Catullus, Virgil, Horace, Ovid, Seneca, Petronius, Lucan, and Tacitus cannot but form an essential part of the mental equipment of any truly cultured person today. This book will appeal to people who enjoy delightful conversation, subtle thinking, important history and culture, fine language, and the company of absorbingly interesting people of another time and place. Jane Austen's idea of good company was the company of clever, well-informed people who had a good deal of conversation. Her idea is eminently satisfied by the contents of this collection.

Paul S Use Of The Old Testament In Romans 9 1 9

This investigation builds upon recent developments in the study of Paul's use of Scripture that center around the concept of "intertextuality." Abasciano uses an exegetical method that incorporates into a thorough traditional exegesis a comprehensive analysis of Paul's use of Scripture against the background of interpretive traditions surrounding the texts alluded to, with great emphasis placed on analyzing the original contexts of Paul's citations and allusions. Such an intertextual exegesis is conducted in Romans 9:1-9 with an awareness of the broader unit of chapters 9-11 especially, and also the epistle as a whole. The study finds that many of the themes Paul deals with in Romans 9-11 are also present in ancient Jewish and Christian interpretive traditions surrounding the passages he invokes, and more importantly, that Paul's scriptural quotations and allusions function as pointers to their broad original contexts, from which he developed much of the form, content, and direction of his argument, holding significance for a number of exegetical details as well as broader themes and rhetorical movements. The final chapter seeks to draw conclusions concerning the significance of Paul's use of the Old Testament in Romans 9:1-9 for the exegesis and theology of Romans and for Pauline intertextuality. The identity of the true people of God is central to Romans 9-11 and the epistle. And Paul's use of Scripture is contextual and referential, calling for attention to Pauline intertextuality in standard exegetical procedure. JSNTS 301

Suetonius The Biographer

The biographer Suetonius is one of the most fascinating writers of ancient Rome, but he is rarely afforded serious critical attention. This volume of new essays focuses on the various aspects of Suetonius' work, from his lost biographical writing on Roman courtesans to his imperial portraits of the Caesars. Beginning with an introduction that assesses the originality of Suetonius as a writer and situates the essays within the context of debates and controversies over his biographical form, the collection addresses the issues surrounding his style, themes, and early influence on literature in three parts. The first part discusses formal features of Suetonian biography, such as his literary techniques, manners of citation and quotation, and devices of allusion and closure. The middle section is devoted to readings of the individual Lives, treating several topics - from Suetonius' decision to begin his collection with Julius Caesar, to fictional elements in his death scene of the emperor Caligula, and to the theme of solitude in his Life of Domitian. The last part examines the ways in which Suetonius transgresses the boundaries of ancient biography by looking at his influence on epistolographers, antiquarians, commentators, and later biographers. This volume is essential reading for anyone who wants to know why Suetonius' Lives are such a unique and powerful medium for the stories of ancient Rome, and how they became the primary model for later biography.

Contents: List of Abbreviations; Preface and Acknowledgements; Piso's Family and Political Career; Prolegomena to the History; Piso's First Book, The Regal Period; Piso's Second and Third Books, The Early Republic; Piso's Later Books, The Middle Republic; Appendix, Testimonia and Fragments; Bibliography; Index.
