Sparta

Comparative Approaches

Sparta

Both in antiquity and in modern scholarship, classical Sparta has typically been viewed as an exceptional society, different in many respects from other Greek city-states. This view has recently come under challenge from revisionist historians, led by Stephen Hodkinson. This is the first book devoted explicitly to this lively historical controversy. Historians from Britain, Europe and the USA present different sides of the argument, using a variety of comparative approaches. The focus includes kingship and hegemonic structures, education and commensality, religious institutions and practice, helotage and ethnography. The volume concludes with a wide-ranging debate between Hodkinson and Mogens Herman Hansen (Director of the Copenhagen Polis Centre), on the overall question of whether Sparta was a normal or an exceptional polis.

Kleine Schriften: Mythica, Ritualia, Religiosa 3 : Kulte und Feste

English summary: This volume of Walter Burkert's Kleine Schriften, edited by Eveline Krummen, presents a selection of articles on Greek ritual (especially on sacrifice) and ancient religion. Together with vol. III on Orphic and Pythagorean Studies, the volumes IV-VI form the core of Walter Burkert's work and close the edition of Burkert's Collected Papers. German text. German description: Der sechste Band von Walter Burkerts Kleinen Schriften konzentriert sich auf Kulte und Feste, ist untergliedert in Gottheiten und Heroen und Institutionen. Es geht um die einzelnen Gestalten der griechischen Religion und besonders die Institution des Tempels, aber auch um grundlegende Fragen zur Bedeutung und Funktion von Ritual, Opfer und Religion. Diese Aufsatze eroffnen eine weitere Perspektive der wissenschaftlichen Arbeit Walter Burkerts, die in der Rezeption seines Werkes hinter der Diskussion seiner Opfertheorie und des soziobiologischen Zugangs etwas zuruckgetreten ist, jedoch ebenfalls ein kontinuierliches Thema seiner Arbeiten bildet.

The Body Politic

Sparta

This is the 7th volume from the International Sparta Seminar. Chapters by distinguished scholars deal with the politics of Spartan nudity; the insecurity of Spartan kings and their involvement with divination; the social meaning of the prominence of animals in Lakonian vase-painting and in naming; what Lakonian vase-painting reveals about local consumerism; the ' ghost of the Lakedaimonian state' and the position of Sparta's perioikoi; Ephorus' idealising view of Sparta; how Spartan women policed the behaviour of men; and how 20th-century intellectuals compared Sparta with Nazi Germany. Anton Powell is the author of Athens and Sparta (2nd edn., 2001) and of Virgil the Partisan (2008). He founded and, with Stephen Hodkinson, organises the International Sparta Seminar. He has conceived and edited numerous collective volumes in Ancient History. He is the editor of Wiley-Blackwell's Companion to Sparta (2011, forthcoming). Powell has recently been Visiting Professor at L'Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris and at the University of Bordeaux. Stephen Hodkinson is an internationally-recognised authority on the history of Sparta. Author of numerous influential studies in Greek history, his book Property and Wealth in Classical Sparta (2000) is the leading work in its field. Stephen Hodkinson is Professor of Ancient History and Director of the Centre for Spartan and Peloponnesian Studies at the University of Nottingham.
