Title: Tod und Sterben im Krieg / TSAJ 158 Die ...
Publisher: Mohr Siebeck
Book Condition: New
In the study of his works, there is an increasing focus on Josephus as an author. Up to now however there has been no monograph whose main subject is the intentions of Bellum and Antiquitates . Sören Swoboda deals with this issue, basing his work on five subjects which are associated with the description of ?death and dying in war.? Beginning with the observation that Josephus functionalizes these subjects as the conveyor of pivotal intentions of the work and that a comparison with Greco-Roman historiography provides crucial insight into his textual-pragmatic focus, Swoboda broadens his view at the end of the book and develops detailed theories about the intentions of Bellum and Antiquitates and their classification in ancient historiography. In addition, he provides complete collections of text passages and summaries for anyone wishing to obtain information on the ancient description of ?death and dying in war.?.

Synopsis: English summary: As an author, Josephus is increasingly becoming the focus of research on his works. However, a monograph especially dedicated to the intentions of Bellum and Antiquitates is still to be written. Soren Swoboda approaches this question on the basis of five themes associated with representations of 'death and dying in war'. Based on the observation that Josephus functionalizes these themes as a medium for transporting the key intentions of a work, and that a comparison with Greco-Roman historical works provides crucial insights into his textual pragmatic perspective, Soren Swoboda broadens his view towards the end of the book and develops comprehensive theories regarding the intentions of Bellum and Antiquitates and their contextualization within ancient historiography. In addition, he provides anyone wishing to learn about ancient representations of 'death and dying in war' with comprehensive listings of text passages as well as extensive summaries. German description: Zunehmend ruckt Josephus als Autor in den Fokus der Erforschung seiner Werke. Eine Monographie, die sich als Hauptgegenstand den Intentionen von Bellum und Antiquitates widmet, steht aber noch aus. Soren Swoboda nahert sich der Frage anhand von funf Themen an, die mit der Darstellung von "Tod und Sterben im Krieg" verknupft sind. Ausgehend von der Beobachtung, dass Josephus diese Themen als Trager zentraler Werkintentionen funktionalisiert und ein Vergleich mit griechisch-romischen Geschichtswerken entscheidende Einblicke in seine textpragmatische Ausrichtung gewahrt, weitet Soren Swoboda am Ende des Buches seinen Blick und entwickelt umfassende Thesen zu den Intentionen von Bellum und Antiquitates und ihrer Einordnung in die antike Geschichtsschreibung. Daruber hinaus bietet er jedem, der sich uber die antike Darstellung von "Tod und Sterben im Krieg" informieren mochte, vollstandige Textstellensammlungen und uberblicksartige Zusammenfassungen.
