Shifting Perspectives. A Comparison of Two Academic Guides to Pompeii.
MetadataShow full item record
This Bachelorthesis attempts to analyse differences in approach and epistemology of two academic guides to Pompeii, namely 'Pompeji in Leben und Kunst' by August Mau (1908) and 'Pompeii: Life in a Roman Town' by Mary Beard (2008) and place them in their respective historical context. The results showed that the two studies to a large extent reflect the dominant epistemology of the time in which they were written.
