About this title

Synopsis:

English summary: Ancient festivals served to promote religious communication beyond the boundaries of political or religious communities. It was in these festivals that religious communication was intensified and practised extensively. Permanent religious signs - sanctuaries, statues, religious roles - were highlighted and adapted for at least one festival each year. Due to the dramaturgy of the festivals, many of the people concerned became actors, and even more became part of the audience. Games, theatrical performances and processions in particular attracted many local people as well as those from outside the city. Professional actors, athletes and orators introduced new practices and established new standards. The competition between cities and their elites was the driving force behind many innovations and the development of new festivals. German description: Gegenstand dieses Bandes sind die Feste der antiken Gesellschaften. Die Beitrage blicken auf das Fest als Ort von religiosem Austausch auch uber die Grenzen einer politischen oder religiosen Gemeinschaft hinweg. Die Diffusion von Festen und Festpraktiken gerat in den Blick. Grosse offentliche Feste waren der Ort, an der religiose Kommunikation an einem Ort besonders intensiv und breitenwirksam wurde. Die standig vorhandenen Zeichen - Kultstatten oder gar Kultstatuen, religiose Rollen - wurden ins Licht geruckt, wurden fur wenigstens ein Fest im Jahr aktualisiert. Die Dramaturgie des Festes machte viele zu Akteuren, mehr Personen noch zu Zuschauern: Rituelle Elemente wie Schauspiele, Zirkusspiele oder Prozessionen ermoglichten eine solche Beteiligung fur viele in Stadten und wurden zum Anziehungspunkt fur Festgaste von ausserhalb, 'Touristen'. Professionelle Athleten, Schauspieler und Festredner verbreiteten neue Praktiken und Standards. Der Wettbewerb zwischen den Stadten und in den stadtischen Eliten war ein wichtiger Motor von Innovationen und der Neuerfindung von Festen. Beitrage uber auswartige Festbesucher, Kalenderexporte und uber Feste zu Ehren des romischen Herrscherhauses lassen diese Funktionen wie die Realitat antiker Feste greifbar werden, die Weinkulte wie Mysterien einschlossen.
