By Hartmut Leppin

Die klassische Mythologie überlebte die Christianisierung des Römischen Reiches und das Ende der Antike; das ist ein ebenso bekannter wie bei näherem Zusehen überraschender Befund, der unterschiedlich beschrieben werden kann. So struggle in den Literaturwissenschaften lange von der christlichen Gefangenschaft der Mythologie die Rede. Der Band, der Beiträge verschiedener Sprachen und Disziplinen vereint, versucht zu differenzieren und fragt danach, in welcher Weise antike Mythologie in verschiedenen Kontexten Polemiken ausgesetzt battle oder etwa als Bildungsgut neutralisiert oder wiederum angeeignet wurde. So entsteht ein facettenreiches Bild von den Bedingungen des keineswegs selbstverständlichen Überlebens von klassischer Mythologie in der Spätantike.
