Graziana Brescia (Foggia) Ambiguous Silence:stuprum and pudicitia in Latin Declamation summary: the thing offers with women’s accountability in adulterium and stuprum from either a criminal and a rhetorical standpoint. A attempt of pudicitia is located in “verbal uprising” opposed to iniuria. The silence generally demanded of girls becomes an contrary call for – speech: failure to talk in the course of a sexual attack dangers being interpreted as facts of complicity. This paper takes as its place to begin the atypical nature of adulterium (referred to additionally as stuprum),170 which derives from the “dual” personality it has already within the felony area as a crimen commune or “shared crime” – that's, one characterised by way of the co-involvement of 2 topics. 171 In Roman legislations, absolving a girl of complicity in adulterium/stuprum, and therefore identifying her innocence of any such crime, is inextricably associated with developing even if any specific case consists of vis “violence” or no longer (hence, the slow allure of adulterium/stuprum into the class of crimen de vi). 172 Paralleling jurists’ attention of this factor, the same debate happens in declamation. In declamatory texts, in spite of the fact that, the difficulty brings into play different types which are decidedly extra culturally made up our minds: the declaimer (like the jurist) assesses the violated woman’s accountability within the legal act. yet, not like the juridical remedy of this query and the $64000 position that violent sexual acts have in Roman felony considering, the declamatory controversies deal with the matter of carnal violence at the foundation of a cultural version that takes without any consideration, and perspectives as nearly inevitable, the woman’s prepared participation (vis grata puellis).
