Jean Andreau and Raymond Descat break new ground in this comparative history of slavery in Greece and Rome. Focusing on slaves' economic role in society, their crucial contributions to Greek and Roman culture, and their daily and family lives, the authors examine the different ways in which slavery evolved in the two cultures. Accessible to both scholars and students, this book provides a detailed overview of the ancient evidence and the modern debates surrounding the vast and largely invisible populations of enslaved peoples in the classical world.

Der Philemonbrief bringt wie kaum ein anderer Brief des Paulus auf den Punkt, worum es im Christentum (das in der Zeit des Paulus noch nicht so genannt wurde) eigentlich geht: um eine im Glauben begründete und durch den Glauben provozierte Veränderung sozialer Beziehungsnetze innerhalb eines gesellschaftspolitisch ganz anders geprägten Raumes. Der Text, der ursprünglich das Begleitschreiben war, mit dem Paulus einen entflohenen Sklaven zu seinem Herrn zurückgeschickt hat, versucht die Geleise dafür zu legen, dass der Sklavenherr mit dem Sklaven ab sofort wie mit einem Bruder umgeht – ganz einfach deshalb, weil der Sklave gläubig geworden ist und sich hat taufen lassen, gemäß Gal 3,27f. also zu den »Söhnen Gottes« gehört, unter denen die für die Antike typische Einteilung der Menschen in »Sklaven« und »Freie« nicht mehr gilt. Damit zeigt der Philemonbrief exemplarisch, wie Paulus als theologischer Diplomat erster Garnitur um die praktische Umsetzung der Konsequenzen seines Evangeliums im Haushalt eines reichen Christen sein ganzes Können einsetzt.Der vorliegende Kommentar analysiert das Schreiben unter diesen Leitgedanken philologisch (dem griechischen Urklang auf der Spur), epistemologisch (im Blick auf die Briefschreibgewohnheiten der Zeit), sozialgeschichtlich (im Blick auf den gesellschaftlichen Kontext) und – typisch für den EKK – wirkungsgeschichtlich (fokussiert auf besonders wichtige Brennpunkte).

"The general introduction will provide the political and historical context for Greek and Roman slavery and briefly survey the institutions themselves. Each chapter will open with a section on "Background and Methodology." These will orient the reader for the chapter's "Case Studies," one from Greece and one from Rome--and sometimes a Hellenistic case--that would constitute the bulk of the book"--

Greek Prostitutes in the Ancient Mediterranean, 800 BCE–200 CE challenges the often-romanticized view of the prostitute as an urbane and liberated courtesan by examining the social and economic realities of the sex industry in Greco-Roman culture. Departing from the conventional focus on elite society, these essays consider the Greek prostitute as displaced foreigner, slave, and member of an urban underclass. The contributors draw on a wide range of material and textual evidence to discuss portrayals of prostitutes on painted vases and in the literary tradition, their roles at symposia (Greek drinking parties), and their place in the everyday life of the polis. Reassessing many assumptions about the people who provided and purchased sexual services, this volume yields a new look at gender, sexuality, urbanism, and economy in the ancient Mediterranean world.

This volume examines the prevalence, function, and socio-political effects of slavery discourse in the major theological formulations of the late third to early fifth centuries AD, arguably the most formative period of early Christian doctrine. The question the book poses is this: in what way did the Christian theologians of the third, fourth, and early fifth centuries appropriate the discourse of slavery in their theological formulations, and what could the effect of this appropriation have been for actual physical slaves? This fascinating study is crucial reading for anyone with an interest in early Christianity or Late Antiquity, and slavery more generally.

In the eyes of posterity, ancient Rome is deeply flawed. The list of censures is long and varied, from political corruption and the practice of slavery, to religious intolerance and sexual immorality, yet for centuries the Romans' "errors" have not only provoked opprobrium, but also inspired wayward and novel forms of thought and representation, themselves errant in the broad sense of the Latin verb. This volume is the first to examine this phenomenon in depth, treating examples from history, philosophy, literature, psychoanalysis, and art history, from antiquity to the present, to examine how the Romans' faults have become the basis for creative experimentation, for rejections of prevailing ideology, even for comedy and delight. In demonstrating that the reception of Rome's missteps and mistakes has been far more complex than simply denouncing them as an exemplum malum to be shunned and avoided, it argues compellingly that these "alternative" receptions are historically important and enduringly relevant in their own right. "Roman error" comes to signify both ancient misstep and something that we may commit when engaging with Roman antiquity, whereby reception may even be conceived as "error" of a kind: while the volume ably addresses popular fascination with a wide range of Roman vices, including violence, imperial domination, and decadence, it also asks us to consider what makes certain receptions matter, how they matter, and why.
