Weiner Publishes Interactive Classical Text Commentary
Visiting Assistant Professor of Classics Jesse Weiner recently published an online, peer-reviewed commentary to the epilogue of Xenophon’s Cyropaedia (Education of Cyrus). “The Many Forms of Persian Decline after Cyrus” explores issues of textual authenticity, genre, leadership, gender and Orientalism in Xenophon's controversial and problematic conclusion to the Cyropaedia.
Weiner’s interactive commentary was published through Cyrus’ Paradise, an innovative project in digital humanities conceived under the auspices of the Center for Hellenic Studies. Cyrus’ Paradise is the world’s first comprehensive, online, collaborative commentary for a classical text.
