Ecclesiazusae, probably produced in 391 BC, is at once a typically Aristophanic fantasy of gender inversion, obscenity and farce, the earliest surviving work in the western Utopian tradition, and the source of a blueprint for a communist society on which Plato may well have drawn in his Republic.


Preface; References and Abbreviations. Introduction. Date and background; Gynaecocracy in Old Comedy; Praxagora's new society; Ecclesiazusae and the development of comedy; Staging. Select bibliography; Note on the Text; Parallel Greek Text and English Translation; Commentary.
