This volume brings together revised papers that were presented at a conference, held at Humboldt University of Berlin in March 2004, on technical texts and technical languages in Graeco-Roman antiquity. The contributions investigate the cultural dimension of technical texts and their different manifestations. They analyse how ancient technical writers dealt with linguistic and stylistic, in particular terminological, features, but also focus on the pragmatic level of technical texts, e.g., their structure and form, their intentions and readers, as well as the role of polemics and the relationship between text and illustrations. The contributions are written in German and English.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"[...] der eigentliche Wert des mit einem ausf hrlichen Stellen- und Sachregister ausgestatteten Sammelbandes liegt in der Pr sentation einer breiten Palette bekannter und entlegener(er) Texte der griechisch-r mischen Fachschriftstellerei. Der Band demonstriert die Vielgestaltigkeit antiker Fachliteratur und ihr (gewolltes) Oszillieren zwischen Utilitarit t und Literarizit t."
Franz R mer und Sonja Schreiner in: Wiener Studien 120/2007
