    Peculiarities of the non-Greek world in Heliodorus’ Aethiopica
    (Wydawnictwo Naukowe Uniwersytetu im. Adama Mickiewicza, 2009) Dworacki, Sylwester
    All that was non-Greek, strange, and exotic regarding people and their environment was also always a point of interest in Greek literature. That interest got a new stimulus in the Hellenistic times, and was still vivid at the end of Antiquity, and in the novel, as well. As an example we may mention the Ethiopian Story of Heliodorus, and his novel is the main point of interest of this article. I discuss in it some characteristic places, that show the non-Greek world, its variety and peculiarities. They refer to the nature and its phenomena, to the world of plants and animals, and to the customs of various nations, mostly from the area of Egypt, and Ethiopia. In conclusion, I pay attention to the superiority of Greek world in Heliodorus’ novel in comparison with non-Greek.

    (Wydawnictwo Naukowe Uniwersytetu im. Adama Mickiewicza, 2009) Gaj, Beata
    The article contains a description of the Ciceronian rhetoric didactics in the Silesian humanistic gymnasia from the 16th to the 18th century. In her article, the author intends to analyze how the educators of the old Silesia cultivated the ancient Ciceronian tradition of eloquence. She observes that Cicero’s authority was never questioned in Silesia despite the European echoes of the ‘dispute about Ciceronianism’, which reached Silesia as well. This and other issues from the area of rhetoric and didactics, on the example of Cicero's works and their reception in Silesia, are the concerns of this paper.

    Delectare oder docere? Zitate aus den Werken des Ovid in einem Emblembuch aus dem 17. Jahrhundert
    (Wydawnictwo Naukowe Uniwersytetu im. Adama Mickiewicza, 2009) Milewska-Waźbińska, Barbara
    The aim of this paper is to emphasise the fact that quotations from Ovid’s Ars amatoria or Remedia amoris are often used in seventeenth-century emblem books to confirm moral truths. Quotations from Ovid’s works play an important role in Jacob Cats’ Silenus Alcibiadis. A detailed analysis will cover emblematic subscriptiones that include quotations from or clear references to Ovid’s works as an important construction element of the composition of an emblem. It turns out that words of the Roman poet taken from works with a parody note are used in this emblem book with clearly didactic and moralizing aim.

    Lingwistyczny dydaktyzm „Nocy attyckich” Aulusa Geliusza
    (Wydawnictwo Naukowe Uniwersytetu im. Adama Mickiewicza, 2009) Wolanin, Hubert
    The aim of this paper is to examine the didactic value of the Attic Nights from the linguistic point of view, and precisely, from the point of view of Gellius’ teachings on the meanings of words. In this context it has been stated that the author makes his readers aware of new meanings gained by certain words when used in contemporary colloquial idiom, describes and interprets the mechanism which had generated those meanings, evaluates the results of the process of semantic change, and, finally, comments on the way some grammarians assess the usage of certain words in ancient literary texts. In effect, the paper concentrates on the passages where A. Gellius, referring to ancient (archaic and classical) literature, describes the semantic differences occurring in various words, depending on their usage, whether in literary or colloquial language, defines the linguistic mechanism giving rise to colloquial variants of different linguistic items, and presents in a critical light the influence of colloquial language on the way in which interpretation is made of particular words as they occur in literary texts.
