The Influence of Urban Planning on Temple Design in West Greece The Influence of Urban Planning on Temple Design in West Greece Новинка

The Influence of Urban Planning on Temple Design in West Greece

Classical design principles such as balance, symmetry, and proportion inform the art and architecture not only of Ancient Greece and Rome, but also of much of the Western world that followed. These principles reflect values of order and reason that have come to define and shape Western notions of civilization itself. But where and how did such principles originate? This book attempts to address these questions by examining interrelationships between temple design and urban planning in Greek colonies of South Italy and Sicily during the Archaic and Classical periods– that is, within a historical context in which Greeks were literally starting from scratch creating a new world for themselves, which is the foundation for our own. Focusing on mathematical correlations, it explores the extent to which the pragmatic needs of human habitation gave birth to aesthetic ideals which Greeks articulated in their houses for the divine. It should prove useful not only for historians of architecture, art, or urban planning interested in the roots of Classical design principles, but also for anyone interested in the history of ideas and in the complex interrelationship between society and art.

Greece : Land of Light

Book DescriptionNow for the first time in paperback, this classic provides a dramatic visual and written introduction to the land, people, culture, and history of Greece. Greece is a legendary destination, and anyone who has once fallen under its spell dreams of returning again and again. GREECE: LAND OF LIGHT captures the essence of Greece—its striking sea and landscape, its peoples, its culture and history, and its ancient monuments. In the stark light of the Greek sun, colors become so pure and clear that they are almost audible. From the tip of the Peloponnese to the remote mountain villages of the far north to the islands of the Aegean, Brukoff’s brilliant color images and Gage's evocative words delineate the heart of Greece. Included are the great classical ruins, Byzantine monasteries, colorful fishing villages, chairs at outdoor tavernas, octopus drying in the sun like laundry, and the ubiquitous cats—the vivid details that each traveler takes home as a memory. Gage’s insightful essays on the turbulent history of Greece, its myths and beliefs, life in the villages, the age-old wisdom and spirit of the Greek people, and above all, "Greece’s unearthly, spiritual, almost holy light" are a passionate tribute to an extraordinary country.

Artists and Artistic Production in Ancient Greece

Greek artists and architects were important social agents who played significant roles in the social, cultural, and economic life of the ancient Greek world. In Artists and Artistic Production in Ancient Greece, art historians, archaeologists, and historians explore the roles and impacts of artists and craftsmen in ancient Greek society. The contributing authors draw upon artistic, architectural, literary, epigraphical, and historical evidence to discuss a range of artists, architects, artistic media, and regions. They refer to historiography and modern theory, taking stock of the past while offering some new directions for future research. Incorporating a variety of methodological approaches and making use of often-neglected evidence, Artists and Artistic Production in Ancient Greece re-examines many long-held ideas and provides a deeper understanding of particular artists and architects, their works, and their social agency.

Re-reading John Fowles’s The Magus from the Greek Culture Perspective

When John Keats wrote his poem “Ode on a Grecian Urn” he dedicated it not to the Greek object of art but to everything that it represented through the immortalized images and values that the urn preserved and mysteriously concealed. Many years later, another English writer, this time a post-modernist one, got inveigled into the Circe-like mirage of Greece. While Keats foregrounded the classic aspects of Greek specificity and art, Fowles repainted a wild and contradictory Greece, powerful and seducing. Through its ancient culture, this image inherits the paradigm of the contemporary world, the Dionysian paradigm. Thus post-modernist Fowles rediscovers Greece different from the typical perspective, a fascinating and deceiving mermaid to whom the ode is dedicated. The focus of this study is on how Greece seduced the Fowlesian literary creations and how much its culture and specificity influenced John Fowles. This interest gets substantialized in by revealing the Greek aspects that appear in the novel The Magus and the way they create new suggestive layers of the Fowlesian text.

Greece: Lights, Camera.... Travel!

Film is of increasing importance to a destination since it can put a place on the map and is more effective than tourism advertisements as it is viewed by millions of people. The purpose of this thesis is to get insight in the way Greece attracts foreign film producers to the country and in what way these films can contribute to the destination branding of Greece. More specifically, this thesis presents the case study of the film Mamma Mia! which has been shot in Greece in 2008. The way this film can contribute to the destination promotion of Greece has been explored, as well as the reasons for Dutch tourists for wanting to visit a specific destination because of film. By means of analysis and interviews with key persons in the tourism industry and film industry of Greece main issues were discovered. The results are used for recommendations to the Greek National Tourism Organisation / Ministry of Tourism on how to position Greece as an interesting filming location to attract more foreign film producers to the country. Next to that it can be used for recommendations on the promotion of films that take place in Greece, in order to attract more tourists to Greece.

Costas Douzinas Philosophy and Resistance in the Crisis. Greece and the Future of Europe

This book is about the global crisis and the right to resistance, about neoliberal biopolitics and direct democracy, about the responsibility of intellectuals and the poetry of the multitude. Using Greece as an example, Douzinas argues that the persistent sequence of protests, uprisings and revolutions has radically changed the political landscape. This new politics is the latest example of the drive to resist, a persevering characteristic of the human spirit. The EU and the IMF used Greece as a guinea pig to test the conditions of social reconstruction in times of crisis. But the manifold resistances turned the object of experimentation into a political subject and overturned the plans of elites. The idea and limits of democracy are redefined in the place of their birth.

Early Rome: Myth and Society

The scholarly community has become increasingly aware of the differences between Roman myths and the more familiar myths of Greece. Early Rome: Myth and Society steps in to provide much-needed modern and accessible translations and commentaries on Italian legends. This work examines the tales of Roman pre-and legendary history, discusses relevant cultural and contextual information, and presents author biographies. This book offers updated translations of key texts, including authors who are often absent from classical mythology textbooks, such as Dionysius of Halicarnassus and Servius. Editor Jaclyn Neel debunks the idea that Romans were unimaginative copyists by spotlighting the vitality and flexibility of Italian myth particularly those parts that are less closely connected to Greek tales, such as the story of Caeculus of Praeneste. Finally, by calling attention to the Italian rather than Roman nature of the collection, this book suggests that Roman culture was broader than the city itself. This important work offers: Up-to-date and accessible translations of Roman and Italic legends from authors throughout antiquity Examination of compelling tales that involve the Roman equivalent of Greek “heroes” Unique view of the strength and plasticity of Roman and Italic myth, particularly the parts less closely connected to familiar Greek tales Intelligent discussion of relevant cultural and contextual information Argument that Roman culture reached far beyond the city of Rome Fresh and readable, Early Rome: Myth and Society offers essential reading for students of ancient Rome as well as those interested in Roman and Greek mythology.

A Rhetoric of Time in the Arts

The role of temporality in the impact and interpretation of art has been long neglected. This book will redress this balance by insisting that our sense of temporality and the rhetoric of eternity can not only can be used to decode the world of the visual image, of art and architecture, but also to explain our position relative to the art work, as to what we see before us. As such this book consists of a sequence of readings of images and buildings, of framed art and frame of our lived experience, the built environment.Beginning with representative works from the epoch of medieval and renaissance art, a key period in the history of Western art in terms of temporal rhetoric in narrative and priority, the analysis will progress to the seventeenth century onward, when such potentials were to become hidden, but still effective, and will a chapter on photography. The last two chapters will focus upon architecture and our experience of the city, from an analysis of the Pantheon in Rome to the skyscrapers of New York - and beyond. This work is for those interested in art, architecture and the analysis of visual culture.

Modern Greece: What Everyone Needs to Know Modern Greece: What Everyone Needs to Know Новинка

Modern Greece: What Everyone Needs to Know

Just a few years ago, Greece appeared to be a politically secure nation with a healthy economy. Today, Greece can be found at the center of the economic maelstrom in Europe. Beginning in late 2008, the Greek economy entered a nosedive that would transform it into the European country with the most serious and intractable fiscal problems. Both the deficit and the unemployment rate skyrocketed. Quickly thereafter, Greece edged toward a pre-revolutionary condition, as massive anti-austerity protests punctuated by violence and vandalism spread throughout Greek cities. Greece was certainly not the only country hit hard by the recession, but nevertheless the entire world turned its focus toward it for a simple reason: the possibility of a Greek exit from the European Monetary Union, and its potential to unravel the entire Union, with other weaker members heading for the exits as well. The fate of Greece is inextricably tied up with the global politics surrounding austerity as well. Is austerity rough but necessary medicine, or is it an intellectually bankrupt approach to fiscal policy that causes ruin? Through it all, Greece has staggered from crisis to crisis, and the European central bank's periodic attempts to prop up its economy fall short in the face of popular recalcitrance and negative economic growth. Though the catalysts for Greece's current economic crises can be found in the conditions and events of the past few years, one can only understand the factors that helped to transform these crises into a terrible political and social catastrophe by tracing Greece's development as an independent country over the past two centuries. In Greece: What Everyone Needs to Know, Stathis Kalyvas, an eminent scholar of conflict, Europe, and Greece, begins by elucidating the crisis's impact on contemporary Greek society. He then shifts his focus to modern Greek history, tracing the nation's development from the early nineteenth century to the present. Key episodes include the independence movement of the early nineteenth century, the aftermath of World War I (in which Turkey and Greece engaged in a massive mutual ethnic cleansing), the German occupation of World War II, the brutal civil war that followed, the postwar conflict with Turkey over Cyprus, the military coup of 1967, and-finally-democracy and entry into the European Union. The final part of the book will cover the recent crisis in detail. Written by one of the most brilliant political scientists in the academy, Greece is the go-to resource for understanding both the present turmoil and the deeper past that has brought the country to where it is now.

The History of Greek Vases

This book, newly available in paperback, is the definitive survey of Greek vases by the outstanding world authority on classical archaeology and art. In it, John Boardman sketches the stylistic history of Greek vases and goes on to explore the many other matters that make the subject so fruitful: the process of identifying artists; the methods of making and decorating the vases and the problems in doing so; the life of the potter; the pots dissemination beyond Greece; and their functions in life, cult and as messengers of style and subject. Boardman demonstrates how Greek artists exercised a style of narrative in art that was long influential in the West, and how their pictures reflected not simply on story-telling, but on the politics and social order of the day.

Institutionalization of Religion in Greece and Turkey

This study concentrates on the religious institutions in Greece and Turkey during the process in which the two nation states were founded in the periphery of Europe. The transfer from the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate to the Church of Greece in the 19th century and from the Seyh-ul Islaml?k to the Presidency of Religious Affairs in Turkey in the early 20th century are comparatively examined to point out to the differences and similarities of the institutionalization of religion in these two cases which bore the historical legacy of the Ottoman Empire and pursued institutional reforms based on Western European examples. Although these institutions were founded and reformed at times to support democratization in these countries, their existence have come to represent the interests and needs of the dominant religion while similar solutions for other convictions have remained problematic.

Minority Rights in Europe and the Muslim Turkish Minority of Greece

This thesis explores the history of minority rights and enforcement mechanisms, minority governance in five western democracies (Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, United Kingdom, and Spain) and the case of Western Thrace Muslim Turkish minority of Greece. The unit of analysis is historical minorities. The study therefore seeks to explore the nature and applicability of these rights and their role in the protection of minorities. Accordingly, the League of Nations, the United Nations, the European Institutions of Council of Europe, Organization and Security in Europe, the European Union and their related legislation concerning minorities have been scrutinized. Implementation in five European democracies has been mentioned in order to offer a preliminary comparative perspective. The bulk of the study is about the Muslim Turkish minority of Greece; elaborated within a historical, legal and political perspective; within the framework of kin-state and host-state relations, the social structure of the minority itself and their interactions with the majority whose interactions have occasionally been shaped by the legacy of history and of bilateral relations between Turkey and Greece.
Greece Greece Новинка

Greece

The picture that usually comes to mind when we think of Greek architecture is one of classical temples and ancient sites. This book takes a look at the Greece of reality rather than of the imagination – the buildings constructed since the establishment of the modern Greek state. "Greece: Modern Architectures in History" provides a new understanding of modern Greek history and its architecture, introducing buildings, architects, and the ideas that shaped them, from the mid-nineteenth century neoclassical buildings for the new state to contemporary minimalist architectural works and projects of recent urban regeneration. This book relates Greek architecture to the rise of Modernism in Greece and abroad, examining architecture of a uniquely regional character, closely related to the natural landscape, which is at the same time inherently modern. The authors also touch on the generic modern buildings that characterize the contemporary urban landscape, constructed in the building boom in the decades after World War Two. With a backdrop of historical events, from the revolution of the 1820s, to the world wars in the twentieth century, a civil war, military dictatorship, socialist party politics and '90s consumerist boom, "Greece: Modern Architectures in History" provides a unique, critical account of modern and contemporary Greek architecture.
Pietre Dure and the Art of Florentine Inlay Pietre Dure and the Art of Florentine Inlay Новинка

Pietre Dure and the Art of Florentine Inlay

From the ancient history of decorative stonework comes a very special artistic phenomenon, and this richlv illustrated, large-format book tells its fascinating story. The phenomenon is pietredure, or polychrome hardstone inlay, which resurfaced in Rome in the sixteenth century, within the context of the artistic flowering of the Italian Renaissance. Rome, where art took its inspiration from the cult of antiquity, fell in love with the evocative power of hardstones. Tabletops were covered in stones, inlaid into delicate floral panels or shining out from ovals of opalescent alabaster. From Rome, pietredure spread to Florence, where the Medici family founded a prestigious workshop in 1588, dedicated to the production of hardstone works using materials such as coral, garnet, jasper and lapis lazuli. The art flourished for three centuries, thanks to the virtuoso skills of the finest craftsmen. Other workshops were founded at the Court of Rudolf II in Prague, and the Court of Louis XIV in France, before spreading to Naples and Madrid under the Bourbon dynasty. In this way, Florentine inlay grew to become a tirelessly imaginative artistic language, capable of imbuing works of decorative art with the most astonishing beauty and creating masterpieces which still glow just as brightly today, long after the fall of their royal patrons. This book brilliantly captures the beauty and craftsmanship of this ancient technique, illustrating in scores of dazzling photographs outstanding examples of pietredure, including works designed for the Cappella dei Principi, Florence, and the Schloss Favorite, Rastatt. With over 220 colour illustrations.

Roman Fever Roman Fever Новинка

Roman Fever

During the 18th and 19th centuries, artists and travellers were lured to Rome, the home of civilized values and artistic beauty. But the history of visiting Rome had a pathological side – not only crisis and disorientation but repulsion at its filth and stink. Crucially Rome's air was considered to contain a chronic source of disease. This book argues that "bad air" (mal'aria) is a neglected aspect of thinking about the city's history and as a destination for artists, visitors, and Romans both ancient and modern. These problems interfered with exploring Rome, its art and architecture, and representing its landscape. Atmospheric contamination made plein air painting and investigating antique ruins challenging activities. "Roman Fever" invites and original and alternative perspective on the city and its countryside, revisiting the history of Rome in terms of ideas about climate and the role of the environment. Beautifully illustrated with unfamiliar images, it focuses on the interplay between enthusiasm and inspiration, and debilitation and mortality, all an integral part of discovering and engaging with the Eternal City's landscape.

Collected Poems of Oscar Wilde

Wilde, glamorous and notorious, more famous as a playwright or prisoner than as a poet, invites readers of his verse to meet an unknown and intimate figure. The poetry of his formative years includes the haunting elegy to his young sister and the grieving lyric at the death of his father. The religious drama of his romance with Rome is captured here, as well as its resolution in his renewed love of ancient Greece. He explores forbidden sexual desires, pays homage to the great theatre stars and poets of his day, and observes cityscapes with impressionist intensity. His final masterpiece, The Ballad of Reading Gaol, tells the painful story of his own prison experience and calls for universal compassion. This edition of Wilde's verse presents the full range of his achievement as a poet.

In this magisterial two-volume book, Pier Luigi Tucci offers a comprehensive examination of one of the key complexes of Ancient Rome, the Temple of Peace. Based on archival research and an architectural survey, his research sheds new light on the medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque transformations of the basilica, and the later restorations of the complex. Volume 1 focuses on the foundation of the complex under Vespasian until its restoration under Septimius Severus and challenges the accepted views about the ancient building. Volume 2 begins with the remodelling of the library hall and the construction of the rotunda complex, and examines the dedication of the Christian Basilica of SS Cosmas and Damian. Of interest to scholars in a range of topics, The Temple of Peace in Rome crosses the boundaries between classics, archaeology, history of architecture, and art history, through Late Antiquity, the Middle Ages, and the early modern period.

Divisions of Greece

Divisions of Greece This is a study of the development of civil institutions in modern Greece. The focus is on "guest-labor" in Europe. Attempt is made to establish the historical genealogy of this system as it pertains to the German system of foreign labor recruitment. Greek developments in the forties and early fifties led to the formation of an "exceptional" type of a regime. Such a regime may be seen as the specific outcome of external interventions. The role of the British is presented as central to the course of events taken in Greek affairs after the Second World War. In actual terms, British Forces in Greece (1945) supported a regime which was in continuity with the pre-war power configuration, while claiming to be engaged in a crusade against Communism. Subsequently a system of controls was established that led to labor migration. The social control arrangements in the labor reserve formed involved two mechanisms. These were the system of labour-control maintained by the state and the mode of industrial employment fostered in Greece. The study attempts to describe first time the formation of a labor reserve system set in Greece.

History of Technology Volume 33

While political and social historians have made great progress in trying to understand the making of modern Greece by studying * politics and power struggles, little attention has been given TO the co-evolution of the Greek state and the technologies that were developed during this period. This volume HELPS fills this gap, exploring the formation of the Greek state and the construction of ‘modern’ Greece through the lens of the history of technology and industry. The contributors look at the role of engineering institutions, the press and of infrastructure technological networks in promoting specific technocratic ideals and legitimizing social roles for the engineers of the period.

Rome and the Third Macedonian War Rome and the Third Macedonian War Новинка

Rome and the Third Macedonian War

This is the first full-length study of the final war between Rome and the ancient Macedonian monarchy and its last king, Perseus. The Roman victory at the Battle of Pydna in June 168 BC was followed by the abolition of the kingdom of Macedon - the cradle of Philip II, Alexander the Great, and the Antigonid monarchs who followed. The first historian of Rome's rise to world power, and a contemporary of the war, Polybius of Megalopolis, recognized the significance of these events in making Rome an almost global power beyond compare - a sole superpower, in other words. Yet Roman authority did not lack challenges from lesser states and insurgents in the decades that followed. The book's meticulous documentation, close analysis, and engagement in scholarly controversy will appeal to academics and students, while general readers will appreciate its brisk narrative style and pacing.

Just a few years ago, Greece appeared to be a politically secure nation with a healthy economy. Today, Greece can be found at the center of the economic maelstrom in Europe. Beginning in late 2008, the Greek economy entered a nosedive that would transform it into the European country with the most serious and intractable fiscal problems. Both the deficit and the unemployment rate skyrocketed. Quickly thereafter, Greece edged toward a pre-revolutionary condition, as massive anti-austerity protests punctuated by violence and vandalism spread throughout Greek cities. Greece was certainly not the only country hit hard by the recession, but nevertheless the entire world turned its focus toward it for a simple reason: the possibility of a Greek exit from the European Monetary Union, and its potential to unravel the entire Union, with other weaker members heading for the exits as well. The fate of Greece is inextricably tied up with the global politics surrounding austerity as well. Is austerity rough but necessary medicine, or is it an intellectually bankrupt approach to fiscal policy that causes ruin? Through it all, Greece has staggered from crisis to crisis, and the European central bank's periodic attempts to prop up its economy fall short in the face of popular recalcitrance and negative economic growth. Though the catalysts for Greece's current economic crises can be found in the conditions and events of the past few years, one can only understand the factors that helped to transform these crises into a terrible political and social catastrophe by tracing Greece's development as an independent country over the past two centuries. In Greece: What Everyone Needs to Know, Stathis Kalyvas, an eminent scholar of conflict, Europe, and Greece, begins by elucidating the crisis's impact on contemporary Greek society. He then shifts his focus to modern Greek history, tracing the nation's development from the early nineteenth century to the present. Key episodes include the independence movement of the early nineteenth century, the aftermath of World War I (in which Turkey and Greece engaged in a massive mutual ethnic cleansing), the German occupation of World War II, the brutal civil war that followed, the postwar conflict with Turkey over Cyprus, the military coup of 1967, and-finally-democracy and entry into the European Union. The final part of the book will cover the recent crisis in detail. Written by one of the most brilliant political scientists in the academy, Greece is the go-to resource for understanding both the present turmoil and the deeper past that has brought the country to where it is now.
