Each chapter also includes derivatives, the influence of Latin vocabulary on English, and selected proverbs or common Latin sayings. Special Features • the best of the reading approach and the grammar-translation approach • one Latin passage in each chapter that is adapted from post-antique Latin literature • each chapter contains an unadapted selection of classical Latin from Nepos' Life of Atticus • text ends with ten additional unadapted selections from the Life of Atticus for students' transition to authors courses • Nepos selections accompanied by facing notes and vocabulary • clear, concise grammatical explanations • abundant exercises, both Latin to English and English to Latin • optional oral exercises • vocabulary geared to upper level literature and AP* syllabi • review unit for every three chapters • derivative and proverb studies • background essays on daily life and the culture of post-ancient world • essays on the heroes of classical mythology • essays connecting the ancient, post-ancient, and modern worlds written by university scholars • plentiful full-color illustrations, complement the Latin text of each chapter • study tips for students • three maps custom-made for Latin for the New Millennium • timeline of historical and literary events

The Roman salute

cinema, history, ideology

Author: Martin M. Winkler

Publisher: Ohio State University Press

ISBN: 9780814208649

Category: Reference

The raised-arm salute was the most popular symbol of Fascism, Nazism, and related political ideologies in the twentieth century and is said to have derived from an ancient Roman custom. Although modern historians and others employ it as a matter of course, the term “Roman salute” is a misnomer. The true origins of this salute can be traced back to the popular culture of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries that dealt with ancient Rome: historical plays and films. The visual culture of stage and screen from the 1890s to the 1920s was chiefly responsible for the wide familiarity of Europeans and Americans with forms of the raised-arm salute and made it readily available for political purposes. The Roman Salute: Cinema, History, Ideology by Martin M. Winkler presents extensive evidence for the modern origin of the raised-arm salute from well before the birth of Fascism and traces its varieties and its dissemination. The continuing presence of certain aspects of Fascism makes an examination of all its facets desirable, especially when the true origins of a symbol as potent as the salute and the history of its dissemination are barely known to classicists and historians of ancient Rome on the one hand, and to scholars of modern European history, on the other. Thus this book will appeal to classicists and historians, including film historians, and will be of interest to readers beyond the academy.

Krieg und Religion - Fundament römischer Politik - bilden die Brennpunkte dieser Arbeit. Fragen nach dem Charakter soldatischer Religion, nach deren Funktionalisierung durch die Fuehrungsschicht, vor allem aber die Bestimmung des sich wandelnden Ortes von Krieg im römischen Selbstverständnis, seine Verankerung in Zeit und Raum, stehen im Zentrum der Studie. Mit einem Instrumentarium aus philologischen, althistorischen religionswissenschaftlichen Methoden wird hier zum ersten Mal ein umfassendes Bild der Wechselwirkung von Religion und Krieg von der fruehen Republik bis in die Kaiserzeit gezeichnet und damit eine ueber die Antike hinausweisende Religions- und Militärgeschichte angeboten. .
