Postare dedicata lui Mario.

Asa cum scriam și aici, ultimul film al regizorului Alejandro Amenabar aduce în discutie viata si personalitatea uneia dintre cele mai interesante figuri din antichitatea tardiva: filosoafa si matematiciana Hypatia din Alexandria.

Hypatia a devenit in ultima perioada, mai ales in lumea anglo-saxona, una dintre icoanele feminismului*.

Ea s-a remarcat mai ales ca si matematiciana, nici o lucrare din câmpul filosofiei (dacă a existat vreuna) nesupraviețuind pana astăzi.

Cel mai cunoscut elev al sau a fost, sau este considerat a fi, Synesius, episcopul Cirenei, filosof neoplatonic.

Cateva articole conexe, extrem de utile, pe care le-am găsit răsfoind după cele de mai sus:

Iran (part. I)

Stimabililor, acesta este un post care, o spun de la inceput, iese un pic din segmentul temporal al AC. Avand in vedere insa ca in paginile acestei exceptionale publicatii se intalnesc destule articole ce acopera perioada de timp propusa aici (- - sec. V), m-am gandit ca postarea integrala a revistei este mai mult decat oportuna.

Initial am vrut sa pun toate numerele din Iran pe care le am (1 [1963] - 42 [2004]) intr-un singur post, insa treptat am ajuns la concluzia ca ar fi rezultat un post prea mare si prea greu de consultat. Asa ca m-am gandit sa-l impart in 3.

J. Bidez - L'Empereur Julien. Oeuvres completes. Tom. II, part. II

"Fie in paganism, fie in crestinism, autoritatea Imparatului nu a fost niciodata conceputa dupa un model pur secular; daca crestinii au refuzat cu hotarare tot ceea ce se indrepta spre o anumita divinitate a Imparatului si spre un cult adus acestuia, nu le-a fost greu sa recunoasca o reala mediere creata in progresul guvernarii divine a lumii; responsabilitatea Imparatului are un aspect religios."

Un proiect pe care doream de mai mult timp sa-l realizez pe Analecta Classica: operele Imparatului Iulian. Petele albe pe care le puteti intalni pe unele pagini sunt puse in locul unde era trecut numele bibliotecii. Tomurile bilingve gr.-fr. - 2 la numar, fiecare in doua parti - sunt scanate la o rezolutie foarte buna, paginile au fost "taiate" de mine insumi, asa ca sunt numai bune pentru a fi printate si studiate pe indelete, cu creionul in mana.
