Thornton Wilders Roman ›Die Frau aus Andros‹ erzählt von einer beeindruckenden Frau in der Spätzeit der griechischen Antike Eingebunden in Hinweise auf das »Land, das bald das Heilige genannt werden sollte«, spielt dieser Roman Thornton Wilders in der Spätzeit der griechischen Antike. Chrysis, die Nichtgriechin von der Kykladeninsel Andros, hat zur Zeit um Christi Geburt auf der ägäischen Insel Brynos zum Ärger der auf Handel eingeschworenen Bewohner den alten Brauch des Hetärenmahls mit Rezitation, Musik und Diskussion über philosophische Probleme wiederaufgenommen. Von den wohlhabenden Bürgern verachtet, versammeln sie und ihre Schwester Glykerion die sozial Schwachen, aber auch, sehr zum Leid ihrer Eltern, die jungen Männer. »Mit diesem Werk erreichte Wilder einen vorläufigen Höhepunkt seiner künstlerischen Entwicklung.« Hermann Stresau

„Welch gesegnetes Unterfangen und rühmenswerter Eifer, den Menschen mit der (schreibenden) Hand zu predigen und ihnen das Heil schweigend darzureichen!“ Mit diesen Worten preist Cassiodor die Arbeit seiner Mönche in dem von ihm gegründeten Kloster Vivarium bei Squillace in Unteritalien. Diese Arbeit bestand vor allem im Kopieren der Werke der antiken Literatur; Cassiodors spätantiker Klosterbetrieb wurde in der Folgezeit Vorbild für viele Schreibstuben des Mittelalters, und ohne die Mönche des Vivarium wäre die Literatur der Antike größtenteils verlorengegangen. Ziel der vorliegender Arbeit ist es, neben der quellengeschichtlichen Analyse des langen und vielfältigen Traditionszusammenhanges, in welchem Cassiodor steht, auch diejenigen Aspekte an Cassiodors Schaffen und Persönlichkeit aufzuzeigen, die von der bisherigen Forschung eher vernachlässigt worden sind ( u.a. kompositorische Eigenart und stilistischer Rang der Institutiones). “What a blessed purpose and praiseworthy zeal to preach to men with the (writing) hand and silently to offer them salvation!” In these words, Cassiodorus praised the work of his monks in the monastery he founded at Vivarium near Squillace in southern Italy. This work consisted primarily of copying works of classical literature; Cassiodorus’s monastic workshop in late antiquity later became the model for many scriptoria of the Middle Ages, and without the monks of Vivarium, much of classical literature would have been lost. As well as examining and analysing the historical sources of the long and varied tradition in which Cassiodorus stands, this study seeks to show those aspects of Cassiodorus’s work and character which have been somewhat neglected in previous research (including compositional characteristics and the stylistic level of the institution).
