Konzeption und Fragestellung, pp. In dealing with his subject the author proceeds chronologically, breaking nearly half a millennium of political and constitutional developments into three distinct periods. The introduction is followed by sections dedicated to, respectively, the origins of the plebeian aedileship in the Early Republic and its development until the Licinian-Sextian legislation, which saw the creation of the curule aedileship II.
In the second section, on the origins and early history of the plebeian aedileship, a number of various topics are dealt with. Then follows a discussion of the etymology of the word aedilis , both in classical authors and in modern interpretation II. Zur Etymologie des Wortes aedilis , pp. Thereafter, the author discusses the relations between the aedileship and the temple and cult of Ceres on the Aventine II.
Ancestral Voices and the Paradoxical Roman Republic
Die aedilizischen curae vor den Licinisch-Sextischen Gesetzen, pp. The following topics are the aedileship as a plebeian office and its relationship with the tribunate of the plebs and other formal institutions, in the context of the social and political milieu of the Early Republic II. A summarizing overview of the results arrived at in the various chapters concludes this section of the volume II.
The third section, on the developments between the constitutional reforms of the tribunes C. Licinius Stolo and L.
Sextius Lateranus and those of Sulla nearly three hundred years later, starts with a chapter providing preliminaries and context for the problems considered III. Vorbemerkung und Kontextualisierung, pp.
The following chapter focuses on the co-existence of, and interrelationship between, the two sets of aediles. The Licinian-Sextian reforms did not only open the consulship to men of plebeian families, they also instituted a curule aedileship. From now on two pairs of aediles were elected each year—in addition to the aediles plebeii , there would be two patrician aediles curules.
The chapter deals with the qualifications and eligibility for, and the elections to, the aedileships, and also with the specific insignia toga praetexta, sella curulis and privileges ius imaginum that were the distinguishing markers between the two manifestations of the office III.
In the third chapter, which is concerned with the responsibilities of the aediles from the middle of the fourth century BCE to the Second Punic War, the author traces the expansion of aedilician duties from supervision of the market trading in the city Marktaufsicht to superintendence of the city itself and its vital functions Stadtaufsicht, cura urbis and also discusses the organization of public games, which became an increasingly important responsibility in the period in question III.
The fourth chapter, addressing a series of innovations after the Second Punic War, is mainly concerned with the further expansion of the cura ludorum sollemnium and the cura urbis III. Neuerungen im Zuge des Hannibal-Krieges, pp. In the fifth chapter the author traces the developments in these areas up till the period of Sulla III. Die Ausweitung der Kompetenzen bis in die Zeit Sullas, pp. Again, a summarizing overview of the results arrived at in the various chapters concludes this section III.
The fourth section commences with a chapter providing preliminaries and general context for the discussion of the developments between the reforms of Sulla and the end of the republican period IV. Thereafter the Sullan reforms are discussed, with the focus on their impact on aedilician functions. Taking Cicero's tenure of the office as his point of departure, the author discusses the development of the aedileship during the last decades of the Republic and its place in the post-Sullan cursus honorum IV.
The last discussion of the section is dedicated to the development of the aedilician competences in the first century BCE and their decline under Augustus, when the princeps assumed the responsibility for the various curae IV.
