FROM BEDROOM TO COURTROOM: LAW AND JUSTICE IN THE GREEK NOVEL

This book focuses on three major novels (Chariton’s Callirhoe, Achilles Tatius’ Leucippe and Clitophon, and Heliodorus’ Aethiopica) whose composition coincided with the extension of Roman citizenship when access to Roman courts was granted to increasing numbers of inhabitants of the eastern provinces of the Roman Empire. Through the novels’ melodramatic trial scenes, we can begin to see how the opening of Roman courtroom to Greek-speaking citizens of the Roman Empire stimulated dreams of a world in which universal justice under Rome was wed to Hellenism.
