Here Sian Lewis considers the full range of female existence in classical Greece - childhood and old age, unfree and foreign status, and the ageless woman characteristic of Athenian red-figure painting. Ceramics are an unparalleled resource for women's lives in ancient Greece, since they show a huge number of female types and activities. Yet it can be difficult to interpret the meanings of these images, especially when they seem to conflict with literary sources. This much-needed study shows that it is vital to see the vases as archaeology as well as art, since context is the key to understanding which images can stand as evidence for the real lives of women, and which should be reassessed.

Mannlichkeit und Weiblichkeit auch im antiken Griechenland bestimmten diese Kategorien das alltagliche Leben und die jeweilige Position im gesellschaftlichen Gefuge. Verschiedene Geschlechterbilder aus Mythos, Philosophie und Medizin pragten die griechische Kultur. Welche faktischen Auswirkungen hatten diese Stereotypen auf das Leben griechischer Frauen und Manner? Welche Anforderungen stellte man im antiken Griechenland an positive Weiblichkeit und Mannlichkeit und auf welche Weise wurden diese durchgesetzt? Wie wurde man in Griechenland zum Mann und zur Frau gemacht und in welcher Beziehung standen die Geschlechter in den einzelnen Feldern der sozialen Praxis zueinander? Tanja Scheer nimmt die Geschlechterverhaltnisse in verschiedenen Bereichen des antiken Lebens in den Blick und stellt wichtige Forschungskontroversen vor. Sie bezieht sexuelle und Gefuhlsbeziehungen ebenso mit ein wie die Verteilung von Autoritat und Aufgaben im antiken Haushalt, in Krieg und Frieden sowie in der antiken "Offentlichkeit" von Religion und Politik. Das Ergebnis ist ein gut geschriebenes, zugleich forschungsnahes und problemorientiertes Studienbuch."

This volume in The Edinburgh Leventis Studies series collects the papers presented at the sixth A. G. Leventis conference organised under the auspices of the Department of Classics at the University of Edinburgh. As with earlier volumes, it engages with new research and new approaches to the Greek past, and brings the fruits of that research to a wider audience. Although Greek historians were fundamental in the enterprise of preserving the memory of great deeds in antiquity, they were not alone in their interest in the past. The Greeks themselves, quite apart from their historians and in a variety of non-historiographical media, were constantly creating pasts for themselves that answered to the needs - political, social, moral and even religious - of their society. In this volume eighteen scholars discuss the variety of ways in which the Greeks constructed de-constructed, engaged with, alluded to, and relied on their pasts whether it was in the poetry of Homer, in the victory odes of Pindar, in tragedy and comedy on the Athenian stage, in their pictorial art, in their political assemblies, or in their religious practices. What emerges is a comprehensive overview of the importance of and presence of the past at every level of Greek society. In the final chapter the three discussants present at the conference (Simon Goldhill, Christopher Pelling and Suzanne Said) survey the contributions to the volume, summarise its overall contributions as well as indicate new directions that further scholarship might follow.
