    To be defined


The research will be aimed to:
1. collect all the passages from Lucian's works that directly relate the emotion of shame with their artistic representation, in painting or in statuary art;
2. draw up a historical-archaeological commentary on these passages, which frames them in the visual culture of the imperial age and highlights the Greek classic and hellenistic models of Lucian;
3. trace a history of Lucian's ‘images of shame’ from antiquity to the Renaissance. The final aim, in conformity with the general project, is to write a new chapter on the representation of shame (and lack of shame) in the Greek literary and visual culture of the Imperial Age.
