Next to the Theogony and the Works and Days stands an entire corpus of fragmentary works attributed to the Boeotian poet Hesiod that has during the last thirty years attracted growing scholarly interest. Whereas other studies have concentrated either on the interpretation of the best preserved work of this corpus, the Catalogue of Women, or have offered detailed commentaries, this volume aims at bringing together studies focusing on generic and contextual factors pertaining to the various works of the Hesiodic corpus, the Catalogue of Women included, and the corpus' afterlife in Rome and Byzantium.

The Homeric Simile in Comparative Perspectives: Oral Traditions from Saudi Arabia to Indonesia investigates both the construction of the Homeric simile and the performance of Homeric poetry from neglected comparative perspectives, offering a revealing exploration of what made the epics such powerful examples of verbal artistry. Divided into two parts, the volume first considers similes in five modern oral poetries-Rajasthani epic, South Sumatran epic, Kyrgyz epic, Bosniac epic, and Najdi lyric poems from Saudi Arabia-and studies successful performances by still other verbal artists, such as Egyptian singers of epic, Turkish minstrels, and Chinese storytellers. In applying these findings to the Homeric epics, the second part presents a new take on how the Homeric poets put together their similes and alters our understanding of how the poets displayed their competence as performers of verbal art and interacted with their poetic peers and predecessors. Engaging intensively with a diverse array of scholarship from outside the field of classical studies, from folkloristics to cognitive linguistics, this truly interdisciplinary volume transforms how we view not only a central feature of Homeric poetry but also the very nature of Homeric performance.

Zwei Schwerpunkte stehen im Zentrum des diesjährigen Jahrbuchs: Der eine befasst sich mit jüdischer Militärgeschichte, der andere mit Fragen der Säkularisierung des Hebräischen. Jüdische Militärgeschichte ist vornehmlich eine Geschichte der Integration der Juden in ihre europäischen Umgebungskulturen. Dabei stehen Fragen von Loyalität und Staatsangehörigkeit im Vordergrund. Der Schwerpunkt versammelt Beiträge aus der neueren Forschung zu diesem Gegenstand. Dabei werden sowohl imperiale und nationale Lebenswelten unterschieden als auch Themen behandelt, die Fragen des Religiösen angesichts der militärischen Anforderungen miteinbeziehen. Der Schwerpunkt zur Säkularisierung des Hebräischen präsentiert Beiträge über die Verwandlung des Hebräischen als einer bis zum Anbruch der Moderne vornehmlich in der religiösen Schriftkultur zur Geltung gekommenen »heiligen Sprache«, und dies unter besonderer Berücksichtigung der mittelalterlichen und frühneuzeitlichen säkularisierenden Wandlungen. Sprachphilosophische und literaturwissenschaftliche Beiträge ergänzen das Konvolut. Im Allgemeinen Teil und in den Rubriken des Jahrbuchs finden sich Beiträge zur Holocaust-Historiografie, zur Orientalistik, zur christlichen Hebraistik, zur Wissenschaft des Judentums sowie Artikel, die unterschiedliche Verfahren der Aneignung, des Transfers und der Wiedergabe jüdischer Alltags- und Geschichtserfahrung in Literatur, Poetik und Theater thematisieren.
