"The episode of Paris in Literature and the Arts" gives the motto for a lecture integrated in the cycle "Amatores in Situ" and scheduled for tomorrow, Friday, 31, in the Roman Ruins of Milreu.
The conference will be given by Fuensanta Garrido Domené and Gabriel Laguna Mariscal, from the University of Córdoba.
The episode of the Paris trial, part of the Trojan cycle, was well known among the Greeks, as their recurring iconographic representation demonstrates. These artistic manifestations, along with the numerous literary allusions to the episode, from the archaic time, give to see aspects of the myth that, although common, differ from each other.
In this conference, these references are presented, with their respective variants, to the judgment of Paris and to everything that surrounds the myth in archaic and classical Greek-Latin literature, as well as its persistence and projection transmitted throughout history.
"With this revision, we will learn about the aspects of the myth that some and other sources make modify between them, as well as some issues that have recurred since the old time," experts say.
The lecture is part of the 5th edition of the "Amatores in situ" cycle and results from the collaboration between the Algarve's Regional Directorate of Culture (through the DiVaM program), the University of Algarve, the Portuguese Association of Classical Studies and the Association CÍVIS – Association for the Deepening of Citizenship. This edition is coordinated by Ana Isabel Soares, from FCHS / UAlg.
