Classics Lecture: “Chariot Warfare in Homer”

PowerPoint Presentation

From Jackson Barnett ’18:

This Friday at noon, Madeleine Goh from the Harvard Center for Hellenic Studies is coming to speak about chariots and chariot warfare. She’s a specialist in Homer and Greek language.

In Homer, spectacular descriptions of chariots and charioteers abound in many glamorous battle scenes in which warriors engage in life or death struggle for Troy and in which they vie for individual glory. The images of the Homeric hero on a war chariot are so iconic that we assume these were used for war or travel in the heroic age. But chariots are also depicted as vehicles for divine journeys or for rituals such as funerals. This talk examines the evidence for the Homeric chariot as a vehicle for warfare or possible ritual use.
