Abstract

DE CONTI RIVARA, GIULIANO. AN APPROACH THROUGH AMMIANUS MARCELLINUS’EYES TO REPRESENTATIONS OF LATE IMPERIAL PAGAN ELITES IN TERMS OF MAGIC, DIVINATION, AND RELIGION. Byzantion nea hellás [online]. 2016, n.35, pp.35-58. ISSN 0718-8471.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-84712016000100002.

We suggest there are at least three different ways though which we can understand supernatural phenomena: the philosophical/scientific knowledge that provides a physical explanation of reality, the knowledge that allows the interpretation of gods’signs and actions in the world, and the knowledge that is associated to different magical practices.

Keywords : representation; Ammianus Marcellinus; magic; divination; religion; conception of the universe.
