Abstract: »The next chapter (that of Arieti) considers the work of another historian, Livy, and asks why it was that rape played a central historical role in his work. The answer provided is that Livy sought to transform rape into a congenial act that might be vindicated on philosophical grounds.« (Susan Deacy and Karen F.
