History and Cultural Theory

In recent years there was attractiveness of the starting to be impression of cultural conception on old writing. Foucault, Bourdieu, Butler and Spivak are only a few of the thinkers whose principles were taken up and deployed by way of historians. What are those principles and the place do they arrive from? How have cultural theorists considered 'history'?

Example text

Jerome may have mistaken the consuls of 59 (Cæsare et Bibulo) for those of 64 (Cæsare et Figulo). Jerome’s chronicle leaves us in no doubt as to where Livy died (ibid. 2033): Livius historiographus Pataui moritur. The tombstone belonging to the writer’s family may actually have been discovered. Indeed, one dating from the age of Augustus and inscribed with the names of a T. Livius C. , of his wife Cassia Sex. f. Prima (CIL V 2975 = Dessau 2919) has been found in Padua. One of his sons wrote a geographical treatise.

12) presented pure Spirensian text, derived from a model close to S (Luchs 1879, XXXIIII–XXXVIIII; de Franchis 2000, 32). tex V2 - 08/05/2014 12:32pm Page 13 13 text, without any sign of contamination, H is the most important witness of the branch. In the rest of the manuscript, the text belongs to the P tradition (Reeve 1989b, 110). In N, Reeve (1987b, 408–409) has established against Billanovich that the Spirensian corrections and additions (=Ns ) are almost contemporary with the copy of the manuscript on the P tradition.

G. B. Miles (1995, 92) puts forward between 27 and 25 BC as the time when the first pentad was published. We will soon see what is to be made of this pessimism on the part of Livy, which has too often been understood, mistakenly in my opinion, to be a sign that Livy had reservations about the new regime (Chapter 11; see also Mineo 2006, 109–111). For the time being, it is preferable to try and make sense of another passage that has long helped foster the view that Livy’s narrative where Augustus’ title is mentioned is the result of a second edition.
