Skip to main content. Log In Sign Up. The world of Homeric epics Whoever wants to analyse evolution of any term important in Greek liiada, even less crucial than 6i.
These two epics are not only the beginning of Greek literature. In wineiewski antiquity, the Homeric masterpiece was supposed to teach. There are reasons to believe that its didactic function sometimes overshadowed its literary perfection. Together with Hesiod, Homer played the role of a great Hellenic teacher, a source of knowl- edge covering aesthetics, morals, religion, social conduct ilisda some technical advice regarding, for example, military tactic.
The Greek society was changed, the process of its development was slower or quicker, but not interrupted, and the Homeric poems remained the Greek Bible for all that time, Iliaa were admired, accepted without a moment of hesitation or objected and criticised,3 but for Greek moralists, philosophers and the so-called ordinary men in the street they remained terms of reference.
Havelock stresses this aspect of’Homeric epics. That question cannot be answered with a great deal of accuracy. K, Korus, Die Griechische Satire: Th” same regards the author. Differences in language, style and the r. Did the world of Achilles uni Oay.

For example, Greek and Trojan knights ride chariots, but wienieqski use them just as a mere means of transport. Homeric basileis and wanaktes resemble MYcenaean terms, but they are used differentlr,: Fi nley, Tlte Kagan Political Thought, New Yorkpp.
In the opinion of Raaflaub, the dating of Homeric society should be based on the tradition und. When we consider the poet,s effort to Preserve “ePic distance”. We maY asume that Homeric society is near-contempolary with the poet. These and many other facts make us believe that Homer does not describe the historical past; neither does he depict his own wienuewski the world of Achilles and Odysseus is a poetic fiction in the sense that it has never existed.
However, this fantastic world has, in our opinion. They also reflect, at least paftly, the level of social development. In this period, the Greek polis came into existence and these two magnificent epic poems are the most complete source to wiwniewski the process of its creation. Some scholars claim that in the Iliad there is no polis at all, and this term can be referred only to the later Odyssey, or even locate the Homeric society in the pre-polis period,I1 However, this statement seems to be too categolical.
The action tn the lliad takes place in Troy and the surounding area; a limited space with two important points: Homer uses three words for a city: The first term dom- inates. Earlier, the lower part of the city was called d,otu.
In Homer, there are little differences between these two terms. It is also worth mentioning that in Homer there is no word for a village and, as a matter of fact, there is no village. His authority comes from Zeus although the highest god has never been cal7ed bttsileus. The tlivine protection does not mean the divinity of the weiniewski himself.
Moreover, Benveniste emphasizes the differ- ence between Greek concept of kingship and other Indo-European ideas of royal power. The Greeks have developed a more democratic and, in our telms, more modern notion. Ehrenberg, PoLis und Imperium, Znrichp. Hof fmann, Die Polis bei Homer, fin: Gschnitzer, Darmstadtp.
Certainly, the abstract meaning of the word polis, connected with politeia, is not always what Homeric men have in mind when they use it. But sometimes we have an impression of such use: In any case, no matter rvith what level of – abstraction do we deal in this line, we should stress that Homeric society, even that described in the lliad,Itves in poleis, which constitute the most important social and political structure. We may also add that the Greek military camp with its buildings, walls, the place wieniewdki meetings corresponding to an agora, re- sembles a town, In the Odyssey,the situation is much simpler.
Oeptq, vopoq, 6trq, euvoliicr. When speaking about the development of a term’s meaning we do not imply that it is equal to the process of conscious abstractin,e ol the idea of justice, since we assume that iliadz can use an idea.
As some scholars claim. It ma1 seem extremely difficult to understand how this process is possible without anv sort of visible artifacts. There can be little doubt that it was epic poetry that became the most important way of expressing the concepts and ideas, which were the fundamental elements of Greek identity. Nevertheless, there are many authors whose disappointment caused by that simple fact can hardl1, be covered by their admiration for Homer’s p. We are able to see what justice means, how just people behave, what sort of deeds deserve the adjective iliadaa, but we will not find any sentence explaining what exactly justice is.
The limited use of the verb “to be” is connected with the form of composition. The terms of primary importance are: In several places in the Odyssey,6ircq together with genetive case means: The association with modern terms seems to be natural, but in the Homeric epics, the meaning of the so-called “legal procedure” is far from iliaca clear and easy to translate.

The first and the most important question is whether we can speak about any legal procedure and about any law in Homer at all? Is the society shown in Homer developed enough to have ]aw? And if the answer is positive, how can the Law, which has not been written yet, act?
Gernet defines the “pre-law”, i. ZIn order to build his concept of pre-law. According to this definition, the society described by Homer does not have larvs. It seems wieniwwski be on the first stage of legal evolution, i.
In his “Geschichte des Rechts”, Wesel underlines the el,olutionan character of 1aw. Later law assumed one more function: The work of legal anthropologists prol”ides a dittbrent model of survey and makes it possible to fotmulate different 4 pe of questions referring to the definition of law. As Burchfiel says]6 summarizing the anthropological theories of last decades, the traditional definition of law, based on criteria more or less close to these used by Gagarin, is full1, applicable to the Western modern law, but cannot be applied to a different cultural model.
The Eurocentric theory of law also excludes all these types of social order that had been formed before the principles created during the centuries of legal development came into being.
The broader definition supported by anthropological evidence lets us claim that “neither writing nor formulation of iliafa systems of legal rules is a necessary 22Gernet, o.
The opinions are divided into two groups: We will not try to solve this complicated problem, since, in our opinion, the evidence provided by the Homeric epics is not sufficient to verify any of these hipotheses. On the other hand, it was necessafy to present main opinions concetning that matter before we started the analysis of particular lines of the text and the meaning of the term 6irr1.
In our opinion, in Homer we ceftainly deal with the sort of procedures that can be interpreted as “proto-1ega1” in the sense that they are performed in order to settle disputes. They show the rules in action, although the exact meaning of these rules may sometimes be obscure. The procedures depicted in Homer are not “legal” in the modern sense wieiewski this term and according to modern standards there is no law in Homeric society.
Nevertheless, this society had already worked up some proceedings that allowed them to solve arguments without violence, and the term 6ircr1 was in the centre of this process.
Two passages from the Iliad are the most important for the analysis: XXIII – On the shield of Achilles, among many miraculous scenes, we see the picture of a city and its every-day life.
The interpretation of the scene has been discussed for a very long time. It may look quite simple, but a closer examination reveals several difficulties. Cantareil a, Tra diritto e prediritto: They point out all the words and expressions that have more that one sense. XVIII – One man tries to convince the judges that he wieniewsoi pay the fee for a killing, his opponent claims that iliadx has never received any wienieswki. Both parties call witnesses, and they wait for the decision of the judges.
XVilI will be rewarded. The interpretation of Ehrenberg is close to this image. Ehrenberg finds it unclear whether iotrrlp is an individual, who is the president of the court, or whether it is a name given to the elders as a united body. One of these judgements is “the straightest” and it ends the dispute. There are two possibilities: Hommel himself 33Ehrenberg, Die Rechtsidee, p.
Further, he believes that the family of the killed man, using some self–help, threated the man responsible for the death with violence.
