Women's worlds in antiquity


The reading and workbook gives an insight into the diversity of female lifestyles and the gender order of the Greek and Roman cultures of the Mediterranean region. From Greek archaic to late antiquity, the authors shed light on, among other things, female cult practices, forms of marriage, the world of work, literary and scientific activities of women, the meanings of eroticism and sexuality and female action in political contexts.
