The Dictionary of Classical Myth and Religion offers a fully rounded and highly authoritative point of access to all aspects of ancient religious life and thought. Dr Simon Price and Dr Emily Kearns, area advisers for the third edition of the Oxford Classical Dictionary, have come together to select, revise, edit, and in some cases wholly recast, a large number of key entries from OCD to create this handy, accessible reference work on mythology and religion in the Graeco-Roman world. Bringing to the attention of a wider audience the authority and scholarly rigour of OCD, the Oxford Dictionary of Classical Myth and Religion provides students, teachers, and general readers with an affordable comprehensive, and wide-ranging A-Z reference source. The Dictionary is unique in that in addition to Greek myths and Roman festivals it covers Greek and Roman religious places, monuments, religious personnel, divination, astrology, and magic, and also contains many entries on Judaism and Christianity in Greek and Roman times.

Mit der Thebais des r�mischen Dichters P. Papinius Statius liegt eine eindrucksvolle Bearbeitung des Themas des Brudermordes vor, das in der Literaturgeschichte durch Aischylos' Drama �Sieben gegen Theben� beruehmt geworden ist. In Statius' zw�lf Buecher umfassendem Epos werden der Kampf der Brueder Eteocles und Polynices um die Vorherrschaft in Theben und ihr Tod dargestellt. Das Werk ist als kuenstlerische Leistung von Bedeutung: Es wurde ueber Jahrhunderte hinweg gesch�tzt und rezipiert, und sp�ter wuerdigte kein Geringerer als Goethe die poetischen Qualit�ten des Dichters. Seit einiger Zeit bemueht man sich um eine neue Beurteilung des kuenstlerischen Gehalts der Thebais. In dieser Arbeit wird ein Teil des Epos, der Katalog der Argiver, kommentiert, in dem geschildert wird, wie sich die �Sieben� versammeln, um gegen Theben zu ziehen. Die Einleitung enth�lt Untersuchungen zur Komposition des Katalogs, zu Motiven und Symbolen sowie zu Sprache und Stil. Dem Kommentar sind der lateinische Text und eine �bersetzung vorangestellt. .

The Oxford Dictionary of Late Antiquity is the first comprehensive reference book covering every aspect of history, culture, religion, and life in Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Near East (including the Persian Empire and Central Asia) between the mid-3rd and the mid-8th centuries AD, the era now generally known as Late Antiquity. This period saw the re-establishment of the Roman Empire, its conversion to Christianity and its replacement in the West by Germanic kingdoms, the continuing Roman Empire in the Eastern Mediterranean, the Persian Sassanian Empire, and the rise of Islam. Consisting of over 1.5 million words in more than 5,000 A-Z entries, and written by more than 400 contributors, it is the long-awaited middle volume of a series, bridging a significant period of history between those covered by the acclaimed Oxford Classical Dictionary and The Oxford Dictionary of the Middle Ages. The scope of the Dictionary is broad and multi-disciplinary; across the wide geographical span covered (from Western Europe and the Mediterranean as far as the Near East and Central Asia), it provides succinct and pertinent information on political history, law, and administration; military history; religion and philosophy; education; social and economic history; material culture; art and architecture; science; literature; and many other areas. Drawing on the latest scholarship, and with a formidable international team of advisers and contributors, The Oxford Dictionary of Late Antiquity aims to establish itself as the essential reference companion to a period that is attracting increasing attention from scholars and students worldwide.
