Learning Objectives

The course aims to provide students with the knowledge and method necessary to acquire the ability to exercise critical analysis and reflection on the tradition relating to Pericles, the most representative politician of the classical age in Athens, highlighting the role of women. who have had a relationship with him at various levels and in various ways. An in-depth and disenchanted reading of the sources reveals a degree of conditioning on Pericles' political choices, by characters such as Elpinice and Aspasia, which in the studies has been remarked only to a limited extent, and only through the distorting lens of a vision prejudicial to the role of women in Greek society. The strong periclean attention to the female universe has, moreover, provided a powerful tool of denigration to critics and opponents of his time; we see clear signs of this, in particular, in theatrical communication and in a disparaging journalistic whose most emblematic representative is Stesimbroto di Taso. But precisely the basic prejudice against women, which in hostile sources informs the distorted reading of Pericles' political activity, once well focused, allows us to propose a stimulating reconstruction of the intertwining between private life and public commitment of the great Athenian statesman .

Program

The main phases of the story relating to Pericles will be retraced, through the critical reading of the main sources, focusing in particular on the reflection, in the ancient tradition and in the re-elaborations of later ages, of the non-secondary role of women who revolved around the figure of the great statesman.
