Bodily Arts: Rhetoric and Athletics in Ancient Greece

Debra Hawhee, "Bodily Arts: Rhetoric and Athletics in Ancient Greece"
University of Texas Press | January 1, 2005 | ISBN: 0292705840 | PDF | 240 pages | 3.4 MB

The role of athletics in ancient Greece extended well beyond the realms of kinesiology, competition, and entertainment. In teaching and philosophy, athletic practices overlapped with rhetorical ones and formed a shared mode of knowledge production. "Bodily Arts" examines this intriguing intersection, offering an important context for understanding the attitudes of ancient Greeks toward themselves and their environment. In classical society, rhetoric was an activity, one that was in essence 'performed'.

Greek Athletics in the Roman World: Victory and Virtue (repost)

Greek Athletics in the Roman World: Victory and Virtue By Zahra Newby
English | 2005 | 329 Pages | ISBN: 0199279306 | PDF | 10 MB

The enduring importance of Greek athletic training and competition during the period of the Roman Empire has been a neglected subject in past scholarship on the ancient world. This book examines the impact that Greek athletics had on the Roman world, approaching it through the plentiful surviving visual evidence, viewed against textual and epigraphic sources. It shows that the traditional picture of Roman hostility has been much exaggerated. Instead Greek athletics came to exercise a profound influence upon Roman spectacle and bathing culture. In the Greek east of the empire too, athletics continued to thrive, providing Greek cities with a crucial means of asserting their cultural identity while also accommodating Roman imperial power.
