Die vorliegende Arbeit stellt eine kurze Zusammenfassung dessen dar, used to be über diese Provinz und deren Vorgeschichte heute bekannt ist. Als Quellen wurden neben Sekundärliteratur auch Briefe Ciceros verwendet, der 51/50 v. Chr. Statthalter im benachbarten Kilikien war.
Nach einer Schilderung der wichtigsten geschichtlichen Ereignisse in diesem Gebiet werden Charakteristika von Landschaft, Klima und Wirtschaft des „eigentlichen Galatiens“ genannt sowie Städte, Verkehrswege und die Zusammensetzung der Bevölkerung beschrieben. Trotz früher Assimilierung an die griechisch sprechenden Kleinasiaten bewahrten sich die Galater ihre Sprache bis zur Zeit um four hundred n. Chr., vielleicht sogar bis ins späte 6. Jahrhundert. Daneben sprachen jedoch zumindest die gebildeten Schichten auch griechisch. Für die deutschsprachigen LeserInnen magazine auch die Tatsache interessant sein, dass galatische Missionare mit Vorliebe in das Gebiet um Trier geholt wurden, um den dort lebenden keltisch sprechenden Menschen die christliche Lehre zu verkünden.

Were David and Jonathan 'gay' fanatics? This very sleek query lies in the back of the new explosion of stories of the David and Jonathan narrative. Interpreters fluctuate of their review of even if 1 and a couple of Samuel supply a favorable portrayal of a gay dating. underneath the clash of interpretations lies an ambiguous biblical textual content which has drawn generations of readers - from the redactors of the Hebrew textual content and the early translators to fashionable biblical students - to the duty of resolving its attainable meanings. What has no longer but been absolutely explored is where of David and Jonathan within the evolution of contemporary, Western understandings of same-sex relationships, particularly how the tale in their dating used to be learn along classical narratives, corresponding to these of Achilles and Patroclus, or Orestes and Pylades. the affection of David and Jonathan explores this context intimately to argue that the tale of David and Jonathan used to be a part of the method through which the trendy concept of homosexuality itself emerged.

The 12 months 1962 marks the tercentenary of the beginning of Richard Bentley (1662–1742), grasp of Trinity university, Cambridge, editor of Paradise Lost, yet mostly and justly well-known as one of many maximum classical students. To mark the development, the collage of Toronto Press is issuing a unique reprint of Alexander Dyce’s variation of the Epistola (1691), the paintings which first introduced Bentley status, and which has lengthy been out of print.
This Latin workout used to be referred to as forth by way of a kind of unsatisfied productions which, mediocre themselves, have had the ailing success to draw the inspection of genius. within the 8th or 9th century A.D., Joannes Malelas of Antioch, a Greek author, tried a chronological list of mankind and in it he had recourse to call or quote from classical works not extant. English students within the 17th century ready a translation of the chronicle into Latin and an accompanying statement; ahead of its book, lower than the ultimate editorship of John Mill, Bentley used to be given a chance to learn proof-sheets and the outcome was once the Epistola, a set normally of a few twenty-five notes upon statements present in or themes steered through Malelas. This outstanding functionality through a pupil of 29 strikes from one subject to a different over quite a lot of historical literature, explaining or correcting a few sixty Greek and Latin authors. The notes usually are not rather a lot a observation at the outdated chronicler as a suite of incredible dissertations pegged upon a random set of appalling howlers, and so they display prodigious info and reward of divination. Bentley’s variety in Latin is apparent and lively and professional with number of citation. The Epistola immediately secured for its author the celebrity reserved for males of the rarest excellence and this vintage between educational productions remains to be charged with strength to train and encourage the scholarship of one other era.
