Download Die Rolle von Volkstribunat und Senat in Sullas 'res publica by Maxi Hoffmann PDF

By Maxi Hoffmann

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Geschichte - Weltgeschichte - Frühgeschichte, Antike, notice: 1,3, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (Institut für Geschichtswissenschaften), Veranstaltung: HS - Ein Staat im Reformstau – Die Krise der späten römischen Republik, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Laut Appian soll der Diktator und Reformer Lucius Cornelius Sulla nach der Hinrichtung eines Feindes auf der Volksversammlung folgende Fabel erzählt haben: „Flöhe bissen einen Bauern beim Pflügen. Zweimal ließ er seinen Pflug ruhen (…) und versuchte sie aus seinem Hemde zu schütteln. Als sie ihn jedoch wieder bissen, verbrannte er sein Hemd, um nicht wiederholt in seiner Arbeit gestört zu werden. Und ich warne diejenigen, die zweimal unterlegen sind, daß nicht das dritte Mal Feuer nötig wird.“ Ungeachtet ihrer tatsächlichen Herkunft ist diese Fabel bezeichnend für die Politik des Lucius Cornelius Sullas, da sie den Einsatz von Gewalt zum Zwecke dringend benötigter reformerischer Maßnahmen rechtfertigt und zugleich der Macht des obersten Befehlshabers Sulla eine drohende Wirkung verleiht.

Ziel dieser Hausarbeit soll es sein, die Reformen Sullas in Verbindung mit seiner Herrschaftsweise zu beleuchten und dabei besonders die Rollen von Volkstribunat und Senat innerhalb dieser Reorganisation zu untersuchen. Sulla wollte mit seiner Verfassung vor allem den Senat in seiner herkömmlichen Funktionsweise festigen, um Kämpfen zwischen Optimaten und Popularen vorzubeugen. Es soll geklärt werden, mit welchen Methoden Sulla die Wiederherstellung der res publica verfolgte, welche Maßnahmen zur Schwächung des Volkstribunats und zur Stärkung des Senats angewandt wurden und inwieweit die sullanische Staatsordnung in eine Entwicklung zum Ende der römischen Republik eingeordnet werden kann.

Der erste Teil der Arbeit beschäftigt sich mit der Machtergreifung Sullas, der Legitimation seiner Herrschaft und seinen politischen Absichten. Im zweiten Teil wird auf die Rollen von Volkstribunat und Senat innerhalb der Reorganisation des Staates eingegangen. Im dritten Teil werden schließlich die Wirkung von Sullas Reformwerk und eine mögliche Einordnung in die Krise der römischen Republik thematisiert.

By Victor Davis Hanson

For generations, students have taken with the increase of the city-state and its terrific cosmopolitan tradition. Now Victor Hanson, the writer of a number of stories of historical struggle and agriculture, has written a publication that may thoroughly switch our view of Greek society.

The heroes of his publication, accordingly, are what he calls "the different Greeks" - the overlooked freehold farmers, vinegrowers and herdsmen of historical Greece who shaped the spine of Hellenic civilization. It used to be those tough-minded, pracitcal, and fiercely self sustaining agrarians, Hanson contends, who gave Greek tradition its particular emphasis on deepest estate, constitutional govt, contractual agreements, infantry conflict, and person rights.

Hanson's reconstruction of historic Greek farm existence, knowledgeable via the hands-on wisdom of the topic (he is a fifth-generation California vine and fruit-grower), is clean, finished, and completely soaking up. yet his designated chronicle of the increase and tragic fall of the Greek city-state additionally is helping us to know the consequences of what could be the unmarried most vital development in American existence this present day - specifically, the approaching extinction of the kinfolk farm.
