Ideas de mujer. Facetas de lo femenino en la Antigüedad
In this work different perspectives on the role of women in Greco-Roman Antiquity are collected. Instead of addressing known historical figures' biographies, the authors have chosen to investigate the everyday intrinsic historical background of women in the origins of Western civilisation. From this standpoint, various aspects that determined the lives of these Pandoras of Greek and Roman culture are discussed:Pregnancy and death, love and marriage, work and political power, magical thinking and religious beliefs.
