Product Overview

In the ancient Greek world bastards were often marginal, their affinities being with the female, the alien, the servile, the poor, and the sick. This book reviews the major evidence from Athens, Sparta, Gortyn, and Hellenistic Egypt, as well as collating and analyzing fragmentary evidence from the other Greek states. Dr. Ogden shows how attitudes towards legitimacy differed across the various city states, and analyzes their developments across time. He also advances new interpretations of more familiar problems of Athenian bastardy, such as Pericles citizenship law. This book should interest historians of a wide range of social topics--from law and the economy to the study of women in antiquity and sexuality. *Author: Ogden, Daniel *Series Title: Oxford Classsical Monographs *Binding Type: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 444 *Publication Date: 1996/02/22 *Language: English *Dimensions: 8.80 x 5.72 x 1.22 inches
