Summary

This volume examines emotional trauma in the ancient world, with material spanning literary texts from different genres (from epic and theatre to historiography) and archaeological sources, and geographically from Greece and Rome to Judaea with a chronological range from about 8th c. BCE to 1st c. CE.

It is organized according to broad themes to showcase the wide range of possibilities of trauma theory as a theoretical framework to discover new angles in ancient sources but also ways that make ancient texts illuminate critical thinking in trauma studies.
