A Prosified Alexandreis With Catalan Glosses: Notes On Tarragona, Biblioteca Pública, Ms 13, Josep Pujol 2023 Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona

A Prosified Alexandreis With Catalan Glosses: Notes On Tarragona, Biblioteca Pública, Ms 13, Josep Pujol

Translat Library

Tarragona, Biblioteca Pública, MS 13 deserves special attention among the codices of Catalan origin that contain Gautier de Châtillon’s Alexandreis because it transmits a prosified version of the poem in which syntax is rearranged to conform to grammatical order and because some of its dense interlineal glosses are in Catalan. This article offers a description of the manuscript, examines its prosifications and glosses as pedagogical tools, and suggests links between the codex and the vernacular culture of the first half of the fifteenth century.


La Radical Imperfección Del Mundo: El Crimen Perfecto De Jean Baudrillard Y El Crimen Ferpecto De Alex De La Iglesia, MARIA A. GOMEZ 2023 Florida International University

La Radical Imperfección Del Mundo: El Crimen Perfecto De Jean Baudrillard Y El Crimen Ferpecto De Alex De La Iglesia, Maria A. Gomez

The Coastal Review: An Online Peer-reviewed Journal

Le parfait crime (1995) by Jean Baudrillard and Crimen ferpecto (2004) by the Basque director Alex de la Iglesia are two works that not only have in common almost identical titles. They both reflect on how in consumer societies, an imperfect real world is substituted for an illusory hyperreality in which the distinction between subject and object has disappeared. While Baudrillard explains how the denial of a transcendent reality in contemporary society is “a perfect crime” that destroys the real, Alex de la Iglesia uses black humor and a mix of genres (mainly grotesque comedy and thriller) to show the …


The "Write" Stuff: The Plausible Capability Of Jesus’ Followers To Author The Gospels, Charles D. T. Miller 2022 Liberty University; Trinity Baptist College

The "Write" Stuff: The Plausible Capability Of Jesus’ Followers To Author The Gospels, Charles D. T. Miller

Eleutheria

It is common for critics of the New Testament to cite William Harris’ 10% literacy rate for first-century Greco-Romans as evidence for the implausibility of Jesus’ followers to write, publish, and circulate the New Testament. This “evidence” is often used to dismiss the entire New Testament as a second-century fabrication that cannot accurately represent the true teachings of Jesus. Is this an accurate portrayal of Galilee during the time of Jesus? The purpose of this article is to demonstrate that Jesus’ followers possessed the “‘Write’ Stuff”—the ability to read, write, and memorize, as well as, access to the technology needed …


Mathematics In Indian Music: Examining Children’S Learning Process, Smita Guha 2022 St. John's University

Mathematics In Indian Music: Examining Children’S Learning Process, Smita Guha

Journal of Global Awareness

There are many mathematical concepts found in music. Music is integrated into Indian culture. It is a common practice among children in India to engage in music lessons from a young age. The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of Indian music on the cognitive development of children to understand or reinforce mathematics. Data was collected from three schools in Kolkata, India, through interviews, observations, and survey questionnaires. Six different music classes from three music schools were observed at different times. Observations were documented through pictures, video recordings, running records, and anecdotal records. To supplement these documentations, …


Plagues, Oblivion, And The Anonymous Dead Echoes From Seneca’S Oedipus And Lucan’S Civil War To Covid-19, Christina Franzen 2022 Marshall University

Plagues, Oblivion, And The Anonymous Dead Echoes From Seneca’S Oedipus And Lucan’S Civil War To Covid-19, Christina Franzen

Critical Humanities

The dead who are piled up in the literary worlds of Seneca’s Oedipus and Lucan’s Civil War are not very different than those of modernity. In their anonymity and silence, they speak so much about the atrocities and traumatic events of the societies in which they live. In Oedipus, nameless citizens claustrophobically are joined to one another in death, and, in Civil War, heaps of dead rot as Caesar looks on. One cannot help being reminded of the mass graves on Hart Island, the refrigerated morgue trucks, and the mass funeral pyres in India. This essay explores how the …


Phaedra: The Influence And History Of A Dramaturgical Mystery, Kierstan K. Conway 2022 Cleveland State University

Phaedra: The Influence And History Of A Dramaturgical Mystery, Kierstan K. Conway

The Downtown Review

Many have debated the possible performance of Seneca's plays. Theatre Historians have polarizing opinions on whether Seneca wrote them intending to perform for Roman Audiences. A comparative study of Euripides' Hippolyte, Seneca's Phaedra, and Sara Kane's Phaedra's Love demonstrates the flexibility of this story and its translation to different historical audiences. This further historical analysis illuminates clues within Seneca's text and proves the possibility of staging, offering a new take on plays previously thought of as "closet dramas."

Sobre La Traducció Catalana De La Tabulatio Et Expositio Senecae De Luca Mannelli // On The Catalan Translation Of Luca Mannelli's Tabulatio Et Expositio Senecae, Marta Marfany

Translat Library

This article studies the medieval Catalan translation of the Latin work Tabulatio et Expositio Senecae by Dominican friar Luca Mannelli, which was composed around 1350 with fragments of Seneca’s works. The anonymous Catalan translation, preserved in a single fifteenth-century manuscript (Barcelona, Biblioteca de la Universitat de Barcelona, MS 282), remains unpublished. This article studies the context of the translation, the manuscript, and the text. It also identifies the copyist and illuminator of the manuscript, Jaume Buesa. This identification makes it possible to date the manuscript to the mid-fifteenth century. Last, this article also compares a sample of the Catalan text …


How A Book Changed A Nation [2022], Teodora Buzea 2022 SUNY College Cortland

How A Book Changed A Nation [2022], Teodora Buzea

Master's Theses

“We don’t believe in vampires.”

I didn’t bother to turn away from the TV to look at my parents. On screen, a crew of young men were interviewing an old woman. She spoke only Romanian, and a too-perfect female voice spoke for her in English. I could see the confident fear in her expression as she exclaimed that vampires were indeed real and that she was always scared of them. She wasn’t alone. All of Transylvania were aware of the existence of vampires. Truly, these young men— ghost hunters and cryptologists—were right to come here to this haunted nation. The …


Exploring Dante’S Sources Online: Interactive Reading, Visualizations, And The Study Of Dantean Intertextuality In The Digital Age, Julie Van Peteghem 2022 CUNY Hunter College

Exploring Dante’S Sources Online: Interactive Reading, Visualizations, And The Study Of Dantean Intertextuality In The Digital Age, Julie Van Peteghem

Publications and Research

Dante’s Commedia is a highly allusive text, and readers throughout time have noted the many parallels between Dante’s verses and those of others. Now that the text of the Commedia and various scholarly and artistic interpretations of the poem (commentaries, translations, illuminated manuscripts) have become accessible online, also the concordance, the lists of parallel passages in Dante’s poem and other works, has become a digital resource. In this essay I explore the study of Dante’s sources in a digital environment mainly through the Intertextual Dante project and its Dante-Ovid edition, published on Digital Dante. Intertextual Dante visualizes moments of …

Ovid’S Casebook: The Literary Jurisprudence Of The Metamorphoses, Ian Ward 2022 College of the Holy Cross

Ovid’S Casebook: The Literary Jurisprudence Of The Metamorphoses, Ian Ward

New England Classical Journal

Roman literature has, thus far, assumed a relatively modest place in the canon of literary jurisprudence. Yet it presents a rich resource for scholars interested, not just in Roman law, but in law today. This article will revisit Ovid’s Metamorphoses, a text which has continued to fascinate literary scholars since the Renaissance. It will suggest that Metamorphoses can be read as a ‘casebook’ in Roman law, and more especially the law relating to marriage and sexuality. At the same time, it will be argued that Ovid had a rather greater argument to make in regard to the broader sweep of …

Callimachus, Cyrene, And The Carneia: Social Solidarity In The Hymn To Apollo, Nicholas D. Cross 2022 Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy

Callimachus, Cyrene, And The Carneia: Social Solidarity In The Hymn To Apollo, Nicholas D. Cross

New England Classical Journal

Callimachus’ Hymn to Apollo has been subject to multiple interpretations. Few, however, have recognized the social value of the hymn for the Cyreneans. This article proposes that the hymn’s two descriptions of the Carneia festival in Cyrene (the inaugural one at the city’s founding and the one in the time of Callimachus) shed light on the poet’s intentions for the work. His depictions highlight how the Carneia fostered the social integration of Apollo’s community. Callimachus’ hymn, therefore, like a festival, encouraged his contemporary Cyreneans to appreciate the social solidarity they experienced during the reign of Magas.
