Le temps dans l'Antiquité

Abstract : Addressing the subject of time in Antiquity enables to delineate the differences (and sometimes similarities) between Christian and Pagan conceptions of time. Two lectures will discuss the role played by faith and biographical and doctrinal Christian data in organising human time, especially by selecting Sunday as a sacred holiday, then evaluate more precisely Saint Jerome’s complex relationship to time, whether human, historical or Christian. Another speaker will study the influence the ritualistic part of Roman religion had in helping to structure time and link past, present and future. A last lecture will address the part time played in Antiquity as time ruling City, Politics, time as a Symbol and time in History, and examine the ways time was pictured. Attached is a corpus of excerpts.
