Circles, literary

(764 words)

Author(s): Schmidt, Peter Lebrecht
[German version] When referring to antiquity, the modern term ‘literary circle’ describes the Maecenatic patronage of contemporary literature and the encouragement of young poets; however, generalizations and exaggerations (in the sense of the middle-class reading circles of the 19th cent.) have to be avoided (cf. gen.  Literary activity II.). Initially, these circles signify an acculturative boost following the conquest of Greece in the early 2nd cent. BC.   Nobiles such as M.  Fulvius [I 15] Nobilior [1. 536 f.] and L.  Aemilius [I 32] Paull…

(6,634 words)

Author(s): Schmidt, Peter Lebrecht | Schallmayer, Egon
[English version] With its nearly 550 km, the Upper Germanic-Rhaetian Limes is one of the most significant monuments of early history. Starting from Rheinbrohl, it crossed the present-day German states of Rhineland-Palatinate, Hesse, Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria. The term Upper Germanic-Rhaetian Limes itself was introduced in the 19th cent., being derived from the Roman provinces of Germania Superior  and Rhaetia, whose eastern and northern borders respectively were reached by the Limes, after numerous changes, by the mid 2nd cent. Impressive remains of this Roman border…
