This paper is concerned with the rape of young girls which is one of the main elements in Greco-Roman New Comedy equally used by Greek and Roman authors. It concentrates on Terence and examines where and when these sexual assaults against young girls happen, trying to show that place and (dramatic and real) time have actually considerable function and significance into the Terentian comedies. More specifically, place is always associated with the excuses which the assailant uses in order to justify his sexual assault and subsequent attitude towards the victim. Instead, time is related to the victim’s pregnancy that sets the violent act before the play’s action and legitimate the assault through marriage-children (i.e. dramatic time); and finally, it is always night (i.e. real time) that along with wine constitutes a strong incitement to sex, which is what adulescentes used to do this time within the conventions of Greco-Roman Comedy.

Abstract  

Two separate studies have looked at the question of whether or not the sources cited by scientists when they publish in their own national journals differ somewhat from the sources they cite when they publish outside their own country. Data derived from studies of Philippine scientists and Korean mathematicians do suggest that place of publication may exert some influence on citation behavior. In particular, a scientist is more likely to cite national sources when publishing in a national journal than when publishing internationally.

Abstract  

A more globalized concept of culture and the tsunami of information made available by the digital revolution call for new reading practices. The emerging discipline of World Literature is an attempt to create such practice, but one that would seem to have very little place in it for the highly specialized skills that define philology, the closest of all close reading strategies. It is this tension that has sparked several calls for a “return to philology.” A historical overview of the Golden Age of classical philology in Germany (1777–1872) suggests that the skills that have defined the profession all over the globe from earliest times are still valuable, but in future can best be employed only in cooperation with scholars having other competencies.

In a period of economic crisis, there is a constantly increasing need to have a general picture on the place and role of different branches in fabrics of modern, open national economies. Based on Leontief’s input-output model, using the unified, structural database of OECD, the article analyses the economic role of the food industry in national economies of OECD member states as well as in economic structure of some important emerging markets by approach of network analysis. Applying this unique combination of a comprehensive database and network analysis methods, it is proven that the centrality of the food industry, determined on the basis of these indicators, is much higher than the average of other sectors of the national economies. This fact can be explained by the specific “bridge” role of the food industry between the different sectors of national economy. Results have proven the importance of the food industry and highlight the necessity of revision of governmental resource-allocation principles for R+D and industrial policy in member-states of the European Union.

Abstract  

In this paper, the special place of Zipf's law and Pareto's law amongst other classical informetric laws (such as Bradford's graphical and verbal law, Weber-Fechner's or Brookes', Leimkuhler's and Mandelbrot's) is revealed and explained. Equivalencies amongst some of these laws are proved. We also determine the conditions under which Bradford's graphical law is a special case of Bradford's verbal law.

Summary

Recent research has increasingly questioned the “grand dichotomy” between “Paganism” and Christianity and brings into light the prominence of spaces with shared meanings in diverse cults related to mystic beliefs and practices. An excellent example is Vibia's tomb within Praetextatus' catacomb, on the Via Appia. Dated to the 4th century AD, this place combines epigraphy and a fascinating iconography pointing to a mystic initiation of the deceased within a syncretic context.
