Byzantion nea hellás

On-line version ISSN 0718-8471


GARCIA CATALDO, Héctor. Foreigners in the cultural development of the hellenic world. Byzantion nea hellás [online]. 2019, n.38, pp.89-103. ISSN 0718-8471.

In this article I show that the problem of migration / immigration, i. e., the foreigner, was already treated by the hellenic literature of the Archaic Era since Homer and that it has been this poet who has instituted hospitality as a distinctive feature of the highest humanity, an almost immanent right to the ethos of man.

Keywords : ξένος; Foreigner / Guest; Homer; Hospitality; θέμις; Justice / Law.
