Description

During the Roman Imperial period Greek culture underwent a revival, a phenomenon which Philostratus named the Second Sophistic. This phase, which has been relatively ignored by scholars, formed the subject of a conference held in Heidelberg in 2003, and this volume publishes seventeen of its papers. The specialised papers discuss the nature of Greek identity during the Imperial period; Sophistic expression through literature, sculpture, portraiture and coins; the human body; public places; patronage, including the relationship between Sophists and the emperors.
