The Irish classical self : poets and poor scholars in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries

The Irish Classical Self' considers the position of classical languages and studying within the building of Irish cultural identities within the eighteenth and 19th centuries, focusing particularly at the "lower ranks" of society. This eighteenth century thought of the "classical self" grew partially out of influential identification narratives built within the 17th century through clerics at the ecu continent: responding to influential opinions of the Irish as ignorant barbarians, they released works demonstrating the worth and antiquity of indigenous tradition and made conventional annalistic claims concerning the antiquity of Irish and connections among eire and the biblical and classical international commonly recognized.

I N T RO D U C T I O N (ii) The tripods in the treasury mentioned in lines – are taken to support her case: ‘si tratta della cella pi`u impenetrabile del tempio dove erano conservati i tripodi dedicati dai daphnephoroi’ (()  ; cf. Pavese ()  ‘sono nominati i tripodi che i daphnephoroi dedicavano’, Sevieri () ). (iii) She identifies the Theban heroines with the chorus of the Daphnephoria: ‘le eroine non sono altro che la proiezione mitica di queste ragazze che intoneranno il loro canto in onore di Apollo, del daphnephoros e della sua famiglia’ (() ; cf.

Her account is thus a conflation of the two sources, although she does not point this out in so many words.  See further Schachter () –, Anastase () –. Grenfell and Hunt () , ,  suggested that fr.  (Paean  = D Rutherford) and fr. l (Paean  = A– Rutherford) were written for the Daphnephoria, but there are no good grounds for this in either case (cf. Rutherford ( )  and  –).  I N T RO D U C T I O N (ii) The tripods in the treasury mentioned in lines – are taken to support her case: ‘si tratta della cella pi`u impenetrabile del tempio dove erano conservati i tripodi dedicati dai daphnephoroi’ (()  ; cf.

Cf. () , where he is still more sceptical). (iii) The alleged connexion between the group of heroines of the early part of the ode and the daphnephoric chorus is arbitrary. They have nothing in common beyond the fact that both consist of a plurality of singing females: for example, nothing suggests that the heroines are to be imagined as carrying suppliant branches. (iv) It is not licit to argue from other, foreign, festivals as to the time of day at which the Theban Daphnephoria was performed.
