Religious modes of (de-)legitimizing violence in antiquity - 05-06-07/09/2019, Mainz (Germany)

19.01.2019

go to CALL FOR PAPERS


"Religion" and "violence" and their possible interdependency occupy a central place in the contemporary discourse in humanities, in spite of (or because of) the fact that neither can be satisfactorily defined. Ever since antiquity a connection between religion (in the broadest sense) and violence has been acknowledged, constructed and welcomed or rejected in various epochs and genres. The conference will focus on strategies of (de-)legitimization of violence in antiquity. Possible topics might include the killing of Pentheus by the maenads, the persecution of Christians under Diocletian or the destruction of pagan temples in late antiquity, the sacrifice of Iphigenia at Aulis or violence in connection with the conflicts surrounding Donatists or Manicheans. We would like to maximize the scope of perspectives and case studies and to facilitate a fruitful exchange across the various disciplines.
