Images and Translations

The Etruscans Abroad

«“In this brilliant volume, Bonfante reminds us that the scope and influence of the Etruscan people were far greater than that reflected in mere literature of their Greek and Latin counterparts. With a perspective gained over a vibrant career, we see here the essential interconnectedness of the people of central Italy with wider communities of the ancient Mediterranean and European worlds.” —Anthony Tuck, University of Massachusetts Amherst

Images and Translations is a tour de force that compellingly presents the Etruscans as an influential cultural force in the Mediterranean and in Northern Europe. Bonfante has long advocated the view that the Etruscans were not a passive society that simply absorbed Greek and other influences.  In this book she effectively demonstrates that the visual record reveals far more than most earlier scholars have recognized.  She proceeds through careful analysis of the artistic evidence, inscriptions, Greek and Roman literary sources, and geographic factors, to show that the Etruscans were in constant contact with other cultures, and that their artworks and customs transformed ‘imported’ visual images to suit their cultural needs.” —Elaine Gazda, University of Michigan
