Happy The People: The Use Of Classical Literature In John Dickinson's Letters From A Farmer In Pennsylvania, Rachel E. Wiedman 2020 St. Ambrose University

Happy The People: The Use Of Classical Literature In John Dickinson's Letters From A Farmer In Pennsylvania, Rachel E. Wiedman

The Macksey Journal

John Dickinson is well noted as an influential writer of the American Revolution, particularly in his series of twelve letters known as the Letters from a Farmer in Pennsylvania81818app手机版下载. While previous scholarship has noted the significant effect these widely circulated letters had upon the colonies and has further explored the purpose for the pseudonym “Farmer,” it has overlooked one major feature of the writings: the inclusion of a Latin quotation at the end of each letter, pulled from various Roman authors. Though the classics at that time were often employed in pamphlet writing to invoke a sense of kinship with ...


Not Your Average Rose: Cultural Inversion In Pizan’S 'City Of Ladies', Alex Donley 2020 Liberty University

Not Your Average Rose: Cultural Inversion In Pizan’S 'City Of Ladies', Alex Donley

Montview Liberty University Journal of Undergraduate Research

This research addresses Le Livre de la Cité des Dames—translated into English as The Book of the City of Ladies—as an outstanding work of proto-feminist literature from 1405. It is written by a woman, in defense of women. Christine de Pizan plays the central character in her own work, in which she combats misogyny with a revised account of history. She battles prevalent ideals of courtly love and gender inequality as things that are not merely repulsive or immoral, but wholly heretical. Rather than focusing on historical accuracy, de Pizan uses the literary power of her narrative to ...

Landscape And Lore: River Acheron And The Oracle Of The Dead, LaShante St. Fleur 2020 The Graduate Center, City University of New York 81818app手机版下载

Landscape And Lore: River Acheron And The Oracle Of The Dead, Lashante St. Fleur

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

In order to explore the cultural relationships between people, landscape, memory and ritual, this master’s thesis focuses on the Acheron River in Epirus, Greece, long believed to harbor an entrance into Hades, the Greek underworld. Various entrances into the chthonic, or subterranean land of the dead, are peppered throughout Greece, with each tied to their own local myths, legends, folklore and cults. According to those traditions, Hades could be accessed from several terrestrial rivers thought to be connected to Oceanus, the primordial world-encompassing river surrounding all of creation. Flowing forth from River Ocean were all above- and underground rivers ...

Euripides' 'Andromache' And Athenian Hegemonic Ideology, Alexandra H. Dawson 2020 The Univeristy of Western Ontario

Euripides' 'Andromache' And Athenian Hegemonic Ideology, Alexandra H. Dawson

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Scholarship on the political character of Athenian tragedy has increasingly turned its attention to the relationship between tragedy and empire. In Athenian panegyric, Athens’ rule is frequently portrayed as hegemonic, although historiographical sources reveal inconsistencies between the idealized image of the city and the historical realities of empire. Several recent approaches have concentrated especially on tragedies that feature an Athenian setting or character in the dramatic action as a means to explore the ways in which the plays engage with Athenian ideas on power and domination. In response, the primary aim of this analysis is an understanding of the way ...


The Things They Carried: Classical Greece Maritime Exchange, Ashley Skye Hunter 2020 East Carolina University

The Things They Carried: Classical Greece Maritime Exchange, Ashley Skye Hunter

The Macksey Journal

Since the dawn of civilization, the Mediterranean Sea was a place of significant maritime activity and ancient sailors took advantage of the accessible transportation and trading opportunities it provided. The Ancient Greeks were no exception and by the 5th81818app手机版下载 century BCE, they were using the Mediterranean to not only transport physical objects but also exchange ideas and beliefs as well. However, microscopic organisms would also catch a ride on these ships, which led to the spread of certain diseases throughout Greek communities. Primary sources, such as Herodotus and Thucydides, give modern scholars information about maritime transportation. And where the ...

Why She Ran: Hebrew Bible Well Symbolism In The Protevangelium Of James 11.1–4, Rachel Huntsman 2020 Brigham Young University

Why She Ran: Hebrew Bible Well Symbolism In The Protevangelium Of James 11.1–4, Rachel Huntsman

Studia Antiqua

There are aspects of the annunciation scene—as portrayed in the Protevangelium of James—which have not yet been examined by modern scholars. These issues are important when relating to the history of well symbolism in the Hebrew Bible, which symbolism continued in force through the Second Temple period. This paper examines the symbolism of wells, fertility, and marriage and how the author of the Protevangelium of James consciously knew about this symbolism and wrote his narrative in a way that distanced Mary, the mother of Jesus, from any ideas saying that she was less than virginal.


Taking Away The Sin Of The World: Egō Eimi And The Day Of Atonement In John, Jackson Abhau 2020 Brigham Young University

Taking Away The Sin Of The World: Egō Eimi And The Day Of Atonement In John, Jackson Abhau

Studia Antiqua

The presence of Jewish themes and allusions in the Gospel of John has received much scholarly attention in recent decades. This study follows this trend, exploring several possible connections between the Day of Atonement and the Johannine narrative. In this paper, I argue that these connections—which include John the Baptist’s identification of Jesus with the Lamb of God, echoes of the scapegoat ritual, high-priest-like prayers, and the repeated use of the phrase egō eimi81818app手机版下载—were deliberately incorporated into the narrative by the author of John as pointed allusions to the Day of Atonement. For the original audience, as ...


Symbolism Of Temple Gates In Ancient Israel, Talitha Hart 2020 Brigham Young University 81818app手机版下载

Symbolism Of Temple Gates In Ancient Israel, Talitha Hart

Studia Antiqua

The gates of the city and the temple establish boundaries between inner and outer space, while also allowing access to an area that is clearly separated from its surroundings. Throughout ancient Israel, the city gate was seen as representing economic activity, belonging, justice, and strength. I would argue that the gate of the temple represented many of the same things and was seen in a similar way. I have decided to include the tabernacle, as well as both Solomon’s and Herod’s temples, in this analysis, as they seem to have been seen in a similar light even if ...


Covenant Peoples, Covenant Journeys: Archetypal Similarities Between The Noah, Abraham, And Moses Narratives, Jeremy Madsen 2020 Brigham Young University

Covenant Peoples, Covenant Journeys: Archetypal Similarities Between The Noah, Abraham, And Moses Narratives, Jeremy Madsen

Studia Antiqua

81818app手机版下载The stories of Noah, Abraham, and Moses display remarkable similarities. All three follow a narrative pattern where God appears in theophany to a prophet-patriarch figure, God forms a covenant with this prophet-patriarch and his people to bring them to a new land, and God guides them on a divinely-assisted journey until they reach that land. Rather than being the result of typological shaping or historical resemblance, the narrative similarities between these three stories are most likely indicative of a common narrative archetype, which this paper titles the covenant journey archetype. The thrice-fold repetition of this archetype within the Pentateuch attests ...


“The Symmetrical Battle” Extended: Old Norse Fránn And Other Symmetry In Norse-Germanic Dragon Lore, Julian A. Emole 2020 University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire

“The Symmetrical Battle” Extended: Old Norse Fránn And Other Symmetry In Norse-Germanic Dragon Lore, Julian A. Emole

The Macksey Journal

Previous endeavors to identify a common origin of the dragon-slayer myth (and its many derivatives) in the Indo-European language family have produced mixed results, due in part to the ubiquity of dragon lore. Calvert Watkins’s ambitious project (How to Kill a Dragon, 1995) to reconstruct a poetic formula with PIE *gwhen- (‘to smite, slay’) has garnered both praise and criticism (see, e.g., Daniel Ogden 2013). Christine Rauer (Beowulf and the Dragon, 2000) has demonstrated that Beowulf was influenced by the Latin hagiographic tradition but finds that “the imagery which seems to be so typical for the ...


Emmer Waves Of Grain: The Economics Of Romanization In Rural And Suburban Gaul, Alexander Reed 2020 University of California, Berkeley

Emmer Waves Of Grain: The Economics Of Romanization In Rural And Suburban Gaul, Alexander Reed

The Macksey Journal

81818app手机版下载Following the Roman conquest of the Mediterranean basin, a period of cultural change swept across much of Western Europe as native communities began to rapidly adopt many elements of the Greco-Roman way of life. For centuries, historians have puzzled over why this cultural revolution, commonly termed “Romanization,” took hold with such apparent vigor, often pointing to the enthusiasm of a small body of local elites for explanation. The present paper seeks to outline a model in which agency is instead assigned to the common people of the ancient world and investigates how this model might be used to interpret the ...
