Nonnos of Panopolis, Artemidorus and our metamorphosis

Postby henriette on May 19th, 2018, 3:51 am 

Nonnos,, a gently minded and vibrant poet of key changes in civilisation, articulates paganism with Christianity, Hellenes with Indians, roman gnose with Gnosticism. His poetic dream in two works may be premonitory of current symbolic changes of the world in the sense that it constantly points metamorphosis of the body. Michel Foucault, a reader of empirist oneirocritic Artemidorus,, helps to illustrate how much such metamorphosis of the body are related to the interpretation of dreams and have been central in the evolution of main laws.
Sympathy with companions Nonnos and Artemidorus may arise from their pandean vision of the body that encompasses all the natural environment of each individual and reconciles thrills of love and nightmares.
Anyway, a panarchy is maybe too hollistic to describe current changes in terms of metamorphosis of the people.
