11 December: Winckelmann Lecture "Books and Libraries in the Rome of the Imperial Period"

On Monday, 11 December, at 19:00, there will be a guest lecture in Hörsaal 381, Haus der Gesellschaftswissenschaften, Rudolfskai 42, with Univ.-Prof. Dr. Konrad Vössing, Department of History, Dept. of Ancient History Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn on "Books and Libraries in the Rome of the Imperial Age, Old Questions and New Sources".

Wozu dienten antike Bibliotheken? Da Begriff und Sache aus der Antike stammen, liegt es nahe, den öffentlichen bibliothecae des römischen Reiches eine Funktion zuzuweisen, die der modernen nahe kommt. Basierte nicht auf ihnen die antike Bildung, die literarische Arbeit sowie – Voraussetzung jeder Renaissance – auch die spätere Überlieferung des antiken Schrifttums?

Die Forschungsdiskussion über diese Fragen krankte lange daran, dass uns zwar zahlreiche Bibliotheken des kaiserzeitlichen Rom namentlich (und einige wenige auch archäologisch) bekannt waren, wir jedoch kaum Zeugnisse über ihr ‚Innenleben‘ hatten. Hier hat die 2005 entdeckte Schrift des griechischen Arztes und Philosophen Galen De indolentia / ‚Die Vermeidung von Leid‘ eine neue Situation geschaffen.

Er schreibt über die Buchverluste in Rom infolge des großen Feuers von 192 n. Chr., das den Palatin und seine berühmten Bibliotheken, aber auch private Buchbestände (wie die seinen) schwer getroffen hatte. Was wir dabei erfahren, verändert unseren Blick auf die Bücherwelt Roms.
