A Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology by William Smith Book Resume:

A full account of the works as well as the lives of the Greek and Roman writers is included. Painters, sculptors, and architects are treated at considerable length and an account is given of all their works extant or of which there is any record in the ancient writers. Care has been taken to separate articles on mythological subjects from those of an historical nature. Greek divinities are given under their Greek names and Italian divinities are given under their Latin names.The final volume contains chronological tables of Greek and Roman history, genealogical tables and a list of kings.The dictionary is especially useful for the lives of lesser-known writers. With contributors drawn from among the most distinguished scholars of the day the reissue of these volumes makes available once more an important and valuable work of classical scholarship.

A Dictionary Of Greek And Roman Biography And Mythology [Pdf/ePub] eBook

A Dictionary of Greek and Roman Antiquities 2 Part Set by William Smith Book Resume:

First published in 1842, this extensive reference work was edited and written in large part by the eminent lexicographer and classicist Sir William Smith (1813-93). Knighted in 1892, Smith was one of the major figures responsible for the revival of classical teaching and scholarship in Britain. He also made contributions to biblical study, editing a series of reference works on the subject. His three-volume Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology is also reissued in six parts in the Cambridge Library Collection. The present work is a massive achievement, running to well over a million words and copiously illustrated throughout with line drawings. It proved enduringly popular and was frequently reprinted throughout the nineteenth century. It is reissued now in two parts. The first part contains entries from abacus to lodix (a small shaggy blanket). The second part contains entries from logistai (Athenian officials) to zona (a girdle).

A Classical Dictionary of Biography, Mythology and Geography - A - M by William Smith Book Resume:

CLASSICAL DICTIONARY BIOGRAPHY, MYTHOLOGY, AND GEOGRAPHY BASED ON THE LARGER DICTIONARIES BY WILLIAM SMITH. The great progress which classical studies have made in Europe, md more especially in Germany during the present century, has superseded most of the Works usually employed in the elucidation of the Greek and Roman writers. It had long been felt by our best scholars and teachers that something better was required than we yet possessed in the English language for illustrating the Antiquities, Literature, Mythology, and Geography of the Ancient Writers, and for enabling a diligent studart, to rcad them in the niost profitable manner. It was with a view of suppIying this acknowledged want that the series of Classical Dictionaries was undertaken and the veryfavourable manner in which these Works have been received by the Scholars and Teachers of this country demands from the Editor his most grateful acknowledgments. The approbation with which he has been favoured has encouraged him to proceed in the design which he had formed from the beginning of preparing a series of works which might be useful not only to the scholar and the more advanced student, but also to those who were entering on their classical studies. The Dictionaries of Greek and Roman Antiquities, of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology, and of Greek and Roman Geography, are intended to meet the wants of the more advanced scholar but these works are on too extended a scale, and enter too much into details, to be suitable for the use of junior students. Originally published in 1858. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are now republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

Once considered the largest and most extensive source of biographies in the English language, The Universal Dictionary of Biography and Mythology contains information on nearly every historical figure, notable name, and important subject of mythology from throughout the world prior to the 20th century. Spanning all fields of human effort-from literature and the arts to philosophy and science-and touching on topics from multiple areas of mythological study, including Norse, Greek, and Roman, this extraordinary reference guide continues to be one of the most thorough and accurate collections of biographical data ever created. Combining mythological and biographical entries into a single, comprehensive list, and incorporating a unique system of indicating pronunciation and orthography, The Universal Dictionary of Biography and Mythology offers readers an unparalleled record of historically significant identities, from the obscure and forgotten newsmakers of yesteryear to the highly celebrated shapers of history that remain influential today.

Foreknowledge and Social Identity in 1 Peter

A Dictionary Of Greek And Roman Biography And Mythology [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Foreknowledge and Social Identity in 1 Peter by Paul A. Himes Book Resume:

What is the meaning and significance of foreknowledge in the book of 1 Peter, and how does the concept relate to the circumstances of its first recipients? Himes attempts to answer these questions by examining the concepts of both foreknowledge and social identity within the first century and how they fit into the theology of 1 Peter. In the process of elaborating the concepts of foreknowledge and social identity, this study provides one of the first thorough examinations of the words prognosis and proginosko in the literature of the time period when 1 Peter was composed and circulated. Himes argues that these words are linguistically relevant to how early hearers and readers would have understood the message of 1 Peter. In addition, this volume provides a thorough analysis of social-scientific criticism in 1 Peter, paying special attention to the various views about the social circumstances of the epistle's recipients. Finally, this book concerns itself with the biblical theology of 1 Peter, and with how the concept of foreknowledge functions as a word of comfort and hope to the beleaguered audience of this epistle.

The Classical Museum

A Dictionary Of Greek And Roman Biography And Mythology [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Classical Museum by Leonhard Schmitz Book Resume:

Born near Aachen, Leonhard Schmitz (1807-90) studied at the University of Bonn, from which he received his PhD, before marrying an Englishwoman and becoming a naturalised British citizen. Made famous by the 1844 publication of his translation of Niebuhr's Lectures on the History of Rome, he became rector of the Royal High School, Edinburgh, where he taught Alexander Graham Bell. He also briefly tutored the future Edward VII (and he had previously taught Prince Albert in Bonn). This short-lived quarterly journal, which Schmitz founded and edited between 1844 and 1850, focused exclusively on aspects of classical antiquity - in contrast to the more general literary reviews that were common in the period. It illuminates the development of Classics as a specialist discipline as well as contemporary intellectual links between Britain and Germany. This third volume was published in 1846.

Character Sketches of Romance, Fiction and the Drama

A Dictionary Of Greek And Roman Biography And Mythology [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Character Sketches of Romance, Fiction and the Drama by Ebenezer Cobham Brewer Book Resume:

Originally published in 1892, "the object of this Handbook is to supply readers and speakers with a lucid, but very brief account of such names as are used in allusions and references, whether by poets or prose writers; - to furnish those who consult it with the plot of popular dramas, the story of epic poems, and the outline of well-known tales. The number of dramatic plots sketched out is many hundreds. Another striking and interesting feature of the book is the revelation of the source from which dramatists and romancers have derived their stories, and the strange repetitions of historic incidents. It has been borne in mind throughout that it is not enough to state a fact. It must be stated attractively, and the character described must be drawn characteristically if the reader is to appreciate it, and feel an interest in what he reads." This work, an American reprint of The Reader's Handbook by E. Cobham Brewer, ..".while retaining all of the original material that can interest and aid the English-speaking student, gives also 'characters and sketches found in American novels, poetry and drama.'"

A Smaller History of Greece

A Dictionary Of Greek And Roman Biography And Mythology [Pdf/ePub] eBook

A Smaller History of Greece by William Smith Book Resume:

The literary education of a Spartan youth was of a most restricted kind. He was taught to despise literature as unworthy of a warrior, while the study of eloquence and philosophy, which were cultivated at Athens with such extraordinary success, was regarded at Sparta with contempt.-from Chapter IVIntended for school use, this 1865 abridgement of Smith's more comprehensive History of Greece is an excellent introduction to classical history for readers of all ages. From the geography and distant origins of the Greek nation and culture to the Greek colonies and Persian and Peloponnesian Wars through the conquests of Alexander the Great, this clear, concise, highly readable work is a pocket-size Greek history for antiquity buffs to treasure and refer to again and again.British classicist and lexicographer SIR WILLIAM SMITH (1813 -1893) was editor of the Quarterly Review, and also wrote Dictionary of Greek and Roman Antiquities (1842), Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology (1849), and Dictionary of Greek and Roman Geography (1857).

Victorian Poets and the Changing Bible

A Dictionary Of Greek And Roman Biography And Mythology [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Victorian Poets and the Changing Bible by Charles LaPorte Book Resume:

Victorian Poets and the Changing Bible charts the impact of post-Enlightenment biblical criticism on English literary culture. The eighteenth and nineteenth centuries saw a widespread reevaluation of biblical inspiration, in which the Bible’s poetic nature came to be seen as an integral part of its religious significance. Understandably, then, many poets who followed this interpretative revolution—including Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Robert Browning, and Elizabeth Barrett Browning—came to reconceive their highest vocational ambitions: if the Bible is essentially poetry, then modern poetry might perform a cultural role akin to that of scripture. This context equally illuminates the aims and achievements of famous Victorian unbelievers such as Arthur Hugh Clough and George Eliot, who also responded enthusiastically to the poetic ideal of an inspired text. Building upon a recent and ongoing reevaluation of religion as a vital aspect of Victorian culture, Charles LaPorte shows the enduring relevance of religion in a period usually associated with its decline. In doing so, he helps to delineate the midcentury shape of a literary dynamic that is generally better understood in Romantic poetry of the earlier part of the century. The poets he examines all wrestled with modern findings about the Bible's fortuitous historical composition, yet they owed much of their extraordinary literary success to their ability to capitalize upon the progress of avant-garde biblical interpretation. This book's revisionary and provocative thesis speaks not only to the course of English poetics but also to the logic of nineteenth-century literary hierarchies and to the continuing evolution of religion in the modern era.
