Women in the Ancient Mediterranean World

Women in the Ancient Mediterranean World | Ancient Civilizations | Scoop.it

The status of women in ancient civilizations was dictated by religion and position, rarely impacting the everyday lives of everyday female interactions.

 

For the vast majority of women in the Ancient world, daily life revolved around the home as caretakers of children or household managers. Historians that cite examples of powerful women usually rely upon exceptional females, often associated with religious rituals such as the Oracle at Delphi or Rome’s Vestal Virgins. Although the Mediterranean pantheon of goddesses reflects power and cult-following, their example inspired upper class women as well as men, as in the case of the cult of Isis. The lives of everyday women were scarcely affected.

Its interesting to think about how the role of women is based entirely on the religion adopted by that society. If one society has a female god I believe that socitey would have more respect for the female gender. But many societies are quite patriarichal, therefore having more respect for the man than woman. 

Sarah Kerr's curator insight, October 24, 2013 12:23 AM

This scoop gives some insight on what it was like to be a women in the Ancient Mediterranean World. First of all, women were seen as subservient to males, they were in charge of being caretakers of children and to take care of the home. This scoop goes into depth of the few women in ancient history who had a higher status in women kind by being included in things men were such as poetry, politics and relgious events.

Karina Moreno's curator insight, April 28, 2014 11:38 PM

I  find it unreal that a lot of history do not mention women nor in many regions they were consider a citizens.  Back then they should have realized that women were that made everything happen.  A population of people wouldn't have been possible with women giving birth and raising to create who we are today.

Prehistoric Civilization Along China's Silk Road Discovered | Ancient Civilizations | Scoop.it

Archaeologists have unearthed evidence of a prehistoric civilization along the Silk Road in the Gansu province of northwestern China.

According to China's state-run Xinhua news agency, the discovered settlement dates back between 3,600 and 4,100 years ago. Among the findings are ancient coins, tools, crops, and a copper-smelting mill.

"The mill is the earliest of its kind that has been unearthed," Zhang Liangren, a professor at Northwest University in Xi'an, told Xinhua. "It will be of great help for studies of the history of Chinese craftsmanship."
