New Pauly Online features the complete sets of both Brill’s New Pauly and Metzler’s Der Neue Pauly. The encyclopedic coverage and high academic standard of the work, the interdisciplinary and contemporary approach and clear and accessible presentation have made the New Pauly the unrivalled modern reference work for the ancient world. Fifteen volumes (Antiquity, 1-15) are devoted to Greco- Roman antiquity and cover more than two thousand years of history, ranging from the second millennium BC to early medieval Europe. Special emphasis is given to the interaction

between Greco-Roman culture on the one hand, and Semitic, Celtic, Germanic, and Slavonic culture, and ancient Judaism, Christianity, and Islam on the other hand. Five volumes (Classical Tradition, I-V) are uniquely concerned with the long and influential aftermath of antiquity and the process of continuous reinterpretation and revaluation of the ancient heritage, including the history of classical scholarship. New Pauly Online is the unique dual-language online version of this standard reference work for students and scholars.

Brill’s New Pauly fills the need for a comprehensive online guide to the Classical world and the Classical tradition. Topics are covered in depth with references to primary sources and relevant bibliography. More than one of our Classics scholars has expressed to me pleasure that the New Pauly can be accessed online.” - Tom Izbicki, Humanities Librarian, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.

“Of considerable value to major academic libraries, this database and its multivolume print version suit the needs of archaeologists, classicists, historians, and linguists, i.e., users with a strong background in ancient languages and alphabets, classical scholarship, and world history.” - Choice 2011.

Brill’s New Pauly is also available in print.

- Includes ALL volumes of Der Neue Pauly and Brill’s New Pauly

- Unique dual-language edition

- Browsable alphabetical index in both German and English

The Reception of Myth and Mythology

The Reception of Myth and Mythology

Edited by Maria Moog-Grünewald

Following the structure of the Classical Tradition volumes of Brill’s New Pauly this Supplement volume – The Reception of Myth and Mythology highlights the routes and works through which the myths of Greece and Rome have passed into the cultural memory of Europe over the centuries, into its literature, music and art and its reflections on aesthetics and philosophy. New media too, such as film, comics and advertising, have taken up the ancient mythological figures. 187 illustrations provide visual examples of this history. The articles discuss the ancient testimonies to a particular myth and pursue the theme through late antiquity and the Middle Ages into the early modern period and the (post)modern world. A bibliography at the end of each entry

Historical Atlas of the Ancient World

Edited by Anne Wittke, Eckhart Olshausen and Richard Szydlak

This new atlas of the ancient world illustrates the political, economic, social and cultural developments in the ancient Near East, the Mediterranean world, the Byzantine Empire, the Islamic world and the Holy Roman Empire from the 3rd millennium BC until the 15th century AD. The atlas has 170 large color maps that document the main historical developments. Each map is accompanied by a text that outlines the main historical developments. These texts include bibliographies and 65 additional maps, tables and stemmata that provide further elucidation.

Dictionary of Greek and Latin Authors and Texts

Edited by Manfred Landfester

The Dictionary of Greek and Latin Authors and Texts gives a clear overview of authors and Major Works of Greek and Latin literature, and their history in written tradition, from Late Antiquity until present: papyri, manuscripts, Scholia, early and contemporary authoritative editions,

translations and comments. The structure of this work allows easy orientation and quick reference for titles, dates, written tradition and editions for approximately 250 authors from Homer to Late Antiquity: not only the poets, writers and philosophers, but also the scholars of the different fields and early Christianity. The contributions are presented in chronological

order and references to the articles of the New Pauly are included. This reference work can thus

be used both independently and in conjunction with Brill’s New Pauly.

Chronologies of the Ancient World

Names, Dates and Dynasties

Edited by Walter Eder and Johannes Renger

Ancient World. The clear arrangement allows easy orientation and quick access to names, dates

of rule and dynastic relationships. Each list is preceded by a historical introduction and contains

Political Autobiographies and Memoirs in Antiquity

A Brill Companion

Edited by Gabriele Marasco

Ancient autobiography has been the object of several studies and meetings. However, these have focused chiefly on the philosophical and literary aspects. This book aims to examine the development of political autobiography and memoirs in the Greek and Roman world, stressing, instead, the relation of a single work with the traditions of the genre and also the influence of the respective aims of the authors on the composition of autobiographies. At times these works

were written as a means of propaganda in a political struggle, or to defend a past action, and

often to furnish material to historians. Nonetheless, they still preserve the personal viewpoint

and voice of the protagonists in all their vividness, even if distorted by the aim of defending

their record. Political Autobiographies and Memoirs in Antiquity will be a highly valuable and useful

reference tool for both scholars and students of Greek and Roman history and literature.

Brill’s Companion to Horace

Edited by Hans-Christian Günther

This volume centres on a detailed analysis of the whole corpus of Horace’s work by Edward Courtney (Satires), Elaine Fantham (Epistles I and Odes IV), Hans-Christian Günther (Epodes, Odes I – III, Carmen Saeculare and Epistles II) and Tobias Reinhardt (Ars Poetica). The latter is preceeded by a detailed account of Horace’s life and work in general by H.-C. Günther. Two appendices on the transmission of the text (E. Courtney) and style and metre (Peter Knox) conclude the volume. It is aimed at students and scholars of classical and modern literature who seek comprehensive orientation on all aspects of Horace’s work. All quotations from Latin and Greek are translated.

Brill’s Companion to Sophocles

Edited by Andreas Markantonatos

Brill’s Companion to Sophocles offers 35 specially commissioned essays from leading international scholars which give critical examinations of the progress and direction of numerous wide-ranging debates about various aspects of Sophoclean drama. Each chapter offers an authoritative and state-of-the-art survey of current thinking and research in a particular subject area, as well as covering a wide variety of thematic angles. Recent advances in scholarship have raised new questions about Sophocles and Greek tragedy, and have overturned some long-standing assumptions. Besides presenting a comprehensive and authoritative guide to understanding Sophocles, this companion provides scholars and students with compelling fresh perspectives upon a broad range of issues in the field of Sophoclean studies.

Brill’s Companion to Lucan

Edited by Paolo Asso

Although it was labeled an anti-epic for trumping the celebratory scope of the Roman national epos, Lucan’s Bellum Civile is a hymn to lost republican liberty composed under Nero’s tyrannical empire. Lucan lost his life in a foiled conspiracy to replace the emperor, but his poem survived the wreckage of antiquity and enjoyed uninterrupted readership. The present collection samples the most current approaches to Lucan’s poem, its themes, its dialogue with other texts, its reception in medieval and early modern literature, and its relevance to audiences of all times.

Brill’s Companion to Callimachus

Edited by Benjamin Acosta-Hughes, Luigi Lehnus and Susan Stephens

Few figures from Greco-Roman antiquity have undergone as much reassessment in recent decades as Callimachus of Cyrene, who was active at the Alexandrian court of the Ptolemies during the early third century BC. Once perceived as a supreme example of ivory tower detachment and abstruse learning, Callimachus has now come to be understood as an artificer of the images of a powerful and vibrant court and as a poet second only to Homer in his later reception. For the modern audience, the fragmentation of his texts and the diffusion of source materials has often impeded understanding his poetic achievement. Brill’s Companion to

Callimachus has been designed to aid in negotiating this scholarly terrain, especially the process

of editing and collecting his fragments, to illuminate his intellectual and social contexts, and to

indicate the current directions that his scholarship is taking.

Brill’s Companion to Ancient Macedon

Studies in the Archaeology and History of Macedon, 650 BC - 300 AD

Edited by Robin J. Lane Fox

In the past 35 years our archaeological and epigraphic evidence for the history and culture of ancient Macedon has been transformed. This book brings together the leading Greek archaeologists and historians of the area in a major collaborative survey of the finds and their interpretation, many of them unpublished outside Greece. The recent, immensely significant excavations of the palace of King Philip II are published here for the first time. Major new chapters on the Macedonians’ Greek language, civic life, fourth and third century BC kings

and court accompany specialist surveys of the region’s art and coinage and the royal palace

centres of Pella and Vergina, presented here with much new evidence. This book is the essential

companion to Macedon, packed with new information and bibliography which no student of the

Greek world can now afford to neglect.

Brill’s Companion to Greek and Latin Epyllion

and Its Reception

Edited by Manuel Baumbach and Silvio Bär

In classical scholarship of the past two centuries, the term ‘epyllion’ was used to label short hexametric texts mainly ascribable to the Hellenistic period (Greek) or the Neoterics (Latin). Apart from their brevity, characteristics such as a predilection for episodic narration or female characters were regarded as typically ‘epyllic’ features. However, in Antiquity itself, the texts we call “epyllia” were not considered a coherent genre, which seems to be an innovation of the late 18th century. The contributions in this book not only re-examine some important (and some lesser known) Greek and Latin primary texts, but also critically reconsider the theoretical discourses attached to it, and also sketch their literary and scholarly reception in the Byzantine and Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and the Modern Age.

Edited by I.J.F. de Jong

List price EUR 184.- / US$ 252.-

Mnemosyne, Supplements, 339

This is the third volume in the series Studies in Ancient Greek narrative. It deals with the narratological category of space: how is space, including objects which function as ‘props’, presented in Greek narrative texts and what are its functions (thematic, symbolic, psychologising, or characterising)?How are longer descriptions organised and integrated into the story? Long deemed a mere ancilla narrationis, especially in narratives which precede the age of the realist novel, space turns out to play an important and multifaceted role in Greek literature.

Myth is one aspect of this relation whose importance for the study of Plato is only now beginning to be recognized. Reflection on this topic is essential not only for understanding Plato’s conception of philosophy and its methods, but also for understanding more broadly the relation between philosophy and literature.

Orality, Literacy and Performance in the Ancient World

Orality and Literacy in the Ancient World, vol. 9

Edited by Elizabeth Minchin

The ninth meeting in the international Orality and Literacy in the Ancient World series - in the fiftieth year since the publication in 1960 of Albert Lord’s The Singer of Tales - took as its theme ‘Composition and Performance’. This volume contains a selection of those papers, several of which illustrate methodologically innovative approaches to the act of composition, the nature of performance and vocalization in text. Under consideration are Homer, Hesiod, Plato, Isocrates,

the orators of the Second Sophistic, and Proclus. Cross-cultural studies include, amongst others,

South Slavic epic and a text from the Sanskrit archive.

Horace’s Iambic Criticism

Casting Blame (Iambikē Poiēsis)

Timothy S. Johnson

To date the positive value of Horace’s iambic criticism has been underestimated, and overall Horace has been tamed too much. By examining the relationship of the iambic tradition with ritual, this book studies how Horace’s Epodes are more than partisan (consolidating Octavian’s victory by projecting hostilities onto powerless others) but meta-partisan (forming fractured entities into a diversified unity). As Horace moves through his iambics to lyrics (Epodes to Odes),

he stages acts of aggression and retaliation along with attempts at resistance and reconciliation

so that this shifting back and forth creates a correspondence between perspectives. Unity

develops from diversity, polyeideia. This is the point at which Horace socializes literary criticism

(Ars Poetica): societas becomes the telos of his poetics.

Stesichoros’s Geryoneis

Paul Curtis

Stesichoros’s Geryoneis is without doubt one of the gems of the 6th century. This monograph offers the first full-length commentary (in English) to cover all aspects of the Geryoneis. Included in this monograph is a much-needed revised and up-to-date text together with a full apparatus. As well as concentrating on the poet’s usage of metre and language, a particular emphasis has been given to Stesichoros’s debt to epic poetry. Innovative too is the proposal that the Geryoneis was closely connected with the cult worship Geryon received in the 6th century. This book has an especial appeal to both those already familiar with lyric and epic poetry, but

also, it is hoped, those new to Stesichoros.

Sacred Words: Orality, Literacy and Religion

Orality and Literacy in the Ancient World, vol. 8

Edited by André Lardinois, Josine Blok and M.G.M. van der Poel

A prevalent view in the current scholarship on ancient religions holds that state religion was primarily performed and transmitted in oral forms, whereas writing came to be associated with secret, private and marginal cults, especially in the Greek world. In Roman times, religions would have become more and more bookish, starting with the Sibylline books and the Annales Maximi of the Roman priests and culminating in the canonical gospels of the Christians. It is the

aim of this volume to modify this view or, at least, to challenge it. Surveying the variety of ways

in which different types of texts and oral discourse were involved in ancient Greek and Roman

religions, the contributions to this volume show that oral and written forms were in use for both

Greek and Roman state and private religions.

Philological and Historical Commentary on Ammianus

Marcellinus XXVIII

Jan den Boeft, Jan Willem Drijvers, Daniël den Hengst and Hans Teitler

In Book 28 Ammianus describes the military activity of Valentinian on the Rhine. The historian speaks with admiration about his efforts to strengthen the northwestern border of the empire. He shows a similar esteem for the general Theodosius, who re-established order in Britain. However, in the greater part of Book 28 there is an air of gloom. Ammianus writes reluctantly about the judicial terror inflicted on the Roman aristocracy by powerful magistrates. In his digression about Roman manners he speaks with contempt about the senatorial elite and the Roman plebs, because they fail to live up to the standards of their ancestors. The final chapter illustrates the disastrous effects of the mismanagement of the province of Tripolis by corrupt officials.

Aspects of Apuleius’ Golden Ass

Volume III: the Isis Book. A Collection of Original Papers

Edited by W.H. Keulen and Ulrike Egelhaaf-Gaiser

This new monograph on Apuleius’ Isis Book not only brings together the striking diversity of opinions that continues to enliven the discussion about Book Eleven, but also sets new trends in reading the narrative in its literary, religious, archaeological and cultural context. Through a variety of approaches, including religious studies (ancient mystery cult), textual criticism, literary analysis, Greek philosophy, and archaeology, the volume sheds new light on important aspects of Book XI, such as the relation with Plutarch’s De Iside et Osiride; aspects of Lucius’ multifarious physical self-presentation as an Isiac convert; aspects of style and language (wordplay), textual problems in relation to problems of interpretation; the role of Providence and Platonic philosophy, and numerous metaliterary and intertextual aspects.

Lateinische Modalpartikeln

Nempe, quippe, scilicet, videlicet und nimirum

Josine Schrickx

Recently there has been growing interest in particles which play an important role in the interaction between speaker and addressee. This book focuses on the Latin particles nempe, quippe, scilicet, videlicet and nimirum, all of which show how certain the speaker is or would like to be thought. In particular the study concentrates on the differences between these words. With this study the scarcely researched field of Latin modal particles or ‘commitment markers’

is made much clearer using modern linguistic theories and analyses of comparable particles in

modern languages and in Latin.

Letting and Hiring in Roman Legal Thought:

27 BCE - 284 CE

Paul Du Plessis

Commerce in the Roman Empire of the first three centuries C.E. operated within a well- established legal framework provided by Roman law. This framework was the product of both legal theory and legal practice. Centuries of Praetorian modification of the ancient ius civile, augmented by conceptual legal thought provided by the Roman jurists had produced a body of law which permitted commerce to flourish and to expand. Central to this body of law was the contract of letting and hiring, one of the four named “consensual” contracts in Roman law. Building on the pioneering work undertaken by Fiori (1999) on Roman conceptual thought about letting and hiring, this books fills an important gap in the current scholarly literature on this contract and its place in Roman commerce.

Law and Religion in the Roman Republic

Edited by Olga Tellegen-Couperus

Over the past two hundred plus years, scholarship has admired Roman law for being the first autonomous legal science in history. This biased view has obscured the fact that, traditionally, law was closely connected to religion and remained so well into the Empire. Building on a variety of sources – epigraphic, legal, literary, and numismatic – this book discloses how law and religion shared the same patrons (magistrates and priests) and a common goal (to deal with life’s uncertainties), and how, from the third century B.C., they underwent a process of rationalization. Today, Roman law and religion deserve our admiration because together they

supported and consolidated the growing power of Rome.

Severus Pius Augustus

Studien zur sakralen Repräsentation und Rezeption der Herrschaft des Septimius Severus und seiner Familie (193–211 n. Chr.)

Achim Lichtenberger

The Roman Emperor Septimius Severus (193-211 A.D.) originated from the North-African town of Lepcis Magna. His reign is seen as a time in which profound changes within Roman society became evident resulting in many provincials achieving important positions in the Roman state.

The book examines this development from the perspective of a possible use of the non-Italian

home and deities of the Emperor within Imperial iconographics. Important evidence for that

are the native deities propagated by the Emperor. The book further discusses the relationship of

Severus towards Roman gods and a possible sacralisation of the Emperor which might suggest

changing attitudes towards the Emperor. The latter however has to be critically assessed and asked who was responsible for certain images. Was it the Imperial house or were it other groups?

Proceedings of the Ninth Workshop of the International Network Impact

Edited by Ted Kaizer and Olivier Hekster

This volume presents the proceedings of the ninth workshop of the international network ‘Impact of Empire’, which concentrates on the history of the Roman Empire and brings together ancient historians, archaeologists, classicists and specialists on Roman law from some thirty European, North American and Australian universities. This volume focuses on different ways

in which the Roman Empire created, changed and influenced (perceptions of) frontiers. The

volume is divided into five larger sections: the meaning of ‘frontiers’, consequences of frontiers,

religious frontiers, shifting frontiers and crossing ‘frontiers’. In this way, the volume pays

attention to different kind of ‘frontiers’ within the Roman Empire, and to their importance for

the functioning of the Roman Empire over a longer period of time.

Hellenizing Art in Ancient Nubia 300 B.C. - AD 250 and its Egyptian Models

A Study in “Acculturation”

László Török

Presenting a large body of evidence for the first time, this book offers a comprehensive treatment of Nubian architecture, sculpture, and minor arts in the period between 300 BC- AD 250. It focuses primarily on the Nubian response to the traditional pharaonic, Hellenistic/

Roman, Hellenizing, and “hybrid” elements of Ptolemaic and Roman Egyptian culture. The

author begins with a history of Nubian art and a critical survey of the literature on Ptolemaic

and Roman Egyptian art. Special chapters are then devoted to the discussion of the Egyptian-

Greek interaction in the arts of Ptolemaic Egypt, the place of Egyptian Hellenistic and

Hellenizing art within the oikumene, the pluralistic visual world of Ptolemaic and Roman Egypt, as well as on the specific genre of terracotta sculpture. Utilizing examples from Meroe City and Musawwarat es Sufra, the author argues that cultural transfer from Ptolemaic and Roman Egypt to Nubia resulted in an inward-focused adaptation. Therefore, the resulting Nubian art from this period expresses only those aspects of Egyptian and Greek art that are compatible with indigenous Nubian goals.

Proceedings of a Conference at the University of Haifa, 3-7 May 2009

Edited by S. Bar, D. Kahn and J.J. Shirley

The proceedings of the conference “Egypt, Canaan and Israel: History, Imperialism, Ideology and Literature” include the latest discussions about the political, military, cultural, economic, ideological, literary and administrative relations between Egypt, Canaan and Israel during the

Second and First Millennia BC incorporating texts, art, and archaeology. A diverse range of

scholars discuss subjects as wide-ranging as the Egyptian-Canaanite relations in the Second

Intermediate Period, the ideology of boundary stelae, military strategy, diplomacy and officials

of the New Kingdom and Late Period, the excavations of Beth-Shean and investigations into

the Aruna Pass, and parallels between Biblical, Egyptian and Ancient Near Eastern texts. Such breadth in one volume offers a significant contribution to our understanding of the interactions between the civilizations of the ancient Near East.

Life at the Bottom of Babylonian Society

Servile Laborers at Nippur in the 14th and 13th Centuries B.C.

Jonathan S. Tenney

Life at the Bottom of Babylonian Society is a study of the population dynamics, family structure, and legal status of publicly-controlled servile workers in Kassite Babylonia. It compares some of the demographic aspects proper to this group with other intensively studied past populations, such as Roman Egypt, Medieval Tuscany, and American slave plantations. It suggests that families, especially those headed by single mothers, acted as a counter measure against population

reduction (flight and death) and as a means for the state to control this labor force. The work

marks a step forward in the use of quantitative measures in conjunction with cuneiform sources

to achieve a better understanding of the social and economic forces that affected ancient Near

Eastern populations.

Household Archaeology in Ancient Israel and Beyond

Edited by Assaf Yasur-Landau, Jennie R. Ebeling and Laura B. Mazow

Despite the large number of well-preserved domestic contexts in Bronze and Iron Age sites, household archaeology has not been a common approach to studying the material culture of Ancient Israel. Until recently, the dictates of “Biblical Archaeology” led to a narrow set of questions that ignored issues such as gender, status and production within the household. The present volume, which grew out of a session at the 2008 Annual Meeting of the American Schools of Oriental Research, attempts to redress this issue. The seventeen papers herein reflect innovative viewpoints on the theory and praxis of household archaeology in this region. The

next step in household research is presented here, with the use of tailor-made data collection

strategies designed to answer specific questions posed by household archaeology.

Le pouvoir impérial dans les provinces syriennes

Représentations et célébrations d’Auguste à Constantin (31 av. J.-C.-337 ap. J.-C.)

Hadrien Bru

This book focuses on the role of the emperor and the image of the Roman Empire as a whole during the time period from Augustus to Constantine. It analyses this image by taking into

account the epigraphic, literary, numismatic and archaeological sources from Phoenicia to

Osrhoene and from Commagene to Arabia. While discussing Graeco-Roman cities and rural

settlements among desert areas, it addresses celebrations as well as the organization and

promotion of the imperial cult in the Near East. This includes the imperial cult’s forms of

expression of symbolic, political, and various other social or religious functions. This approach, therefore, explores the real and imaginary relationships that existed between the Roman Empire and the populations of the Syrian provinces.

Writing Science before the Greeks

A Naturalistic Analysis of the Babylonian Astronomical Treatise MUL.APIN

Rita Watson and Wayne Horowitz

The beginnings of written science have long been associated with classical Greece. Yet in ancient Mesopotamia, highly-sophisticated scientific works in cuneiform script were in active use while Greek civilization flourished in the West. The subject of this volume is the astronomical series MUL.APIN, which can be dated to the seventh century BCE and which represents the crowning

achievement of traditional Mesopotamian observational astronomy. Writing Science before the

Greeks explores this early text from the perspective of modern cognitive science in an effort to

articulate the processes underlying its composition. The analysis suggests that writing itself,

through the cumulative recording of observations, played a role in the evolution of scientific

thought.

El-Ahwat, A Fortified Site from the Early Iron Age Near Nahal ‘Iron, Israel

Excavations 1993-2000

Edited by Adam Zertal

The excavations at el-Ahwat constitute a unique and fascinating archaeological undertaking. The site is the location of a fortified city dated to the early Iron Age (ca. 1220–1150 BCE), hidden in a dense Mediterranean forest in central Israel, near the historic ’Arunah pass. Discovered

in 1992 and excavated between 1993 and 2000, the digs revealed an urban “time capsule”

erected and inhabited during a short period of time (60–70 years), with no earlier site below

or subsequent one above it. This report provides a vivid picture of the site, its buildings,

and environmental economy as evinced by the stone artifacts, animal bones, agricultural

installations, and iron forge that were uncovered here. The excavators of this site suggest in this work that the settlement was inhabited by the Shardana Sea-Peoples, who arrived in the ancient Near East at the end of the 13th century BCE and settled in northern Canaan. In weighing the physical evidence and the logic of the interpretation presented herein, the reader will be treated to a new and compelling archaeological and historical challenge.

International Studies in the History of Rhetoric, 3

The specific laws of composition of biblical texts, which were first discovered from the mid-eighteenth century, are becoming increasingly well-known. This Treaty represents the sum of Biblical and Semitic rhetoric, in an abbridged translation of the French original. The first chapter traces the history of the discovery of biblical rhetoric, the last chapter opens future prospects. The main text of the book is organized into three sections covering the three major fields of research: 1. Composition: The Levels of Composition, The Figures of Composition, Rewriting. 2. Context: Intratext, Intertext, The Center of concentric constructions. 3. Interpretation: Editing and translating, Composition and Interpretation, Intertext and Interpretation, The gift of interpretation. Numerous examples illustrate this methodical and rigorous exposition.

From its foundation in the late forties, Philosophia Antiqua has been the premier series of monographs on the history of ancient philosophy in the scholarly world, covering all periods from the Presocratics to the later Neoplatonists. The series now emphasises areas that have been less well represented in past literature: Hellenistic philosophy, the Sceptical tradition, Galen and other non-Platonist authors of later antiquity. Alongside traditional text-orientated works (editions, translations,

commentaries and analyses of particular texts and authors), the series offers a forum for works showing the interaction of ancient and modern topics of philosophical interest and between ancient and modern forms of philosophical analysis. Such less- traditional studies will no longer assume a thorough knowledge of ancient Greek and Latin on the part of the reader. Volumes are published in English, French and German. The series does not include Festschriften.

Theoria, Praxis, and the Contemplative Life

after Plato and Aristotle

Edited by Thomas Bénatouil and Mauro Bonazzi

Studies of the notion of theoria and of the contemplative life have been mostly restricted to Plato and Aristotle. This volumes intends to show that contemplation and the intellectual life survived after them and were the objects of heated debates, powerful arguments and original applications all along hellenistic, imperial and late Antiquity. The in-depth introduction, reconstructing all the problems pertaining to the contemplative life in Antiquity, and the twelve

papers by distinguished scholars offer a thorough study of the appropriations, criticism and transformation of Plato’s and Aristotle’s positions about the contemplative life, including their epistemological and metaphysical foundations, from Theophrastus to the end of Antiquity (including Jewish and Christian authors), with a focus on Platonism (from Cicero to Damascius).

L’aporie ou l’expérience des limites de la pensée

dans le Peri Archôn de Damaskios

Carolle Tresson-Metry

The radical aporetism in the treatise on first principles written by Neoplatonic philosopher Damaskios should be understood as a unique access to grasp differently, in a highest and purified manner, the first principles and ourselves. Being a quest of ultimate realities, this treatise is a deep reflection on the processes and limitations of human thought in relation to supreme principles. Denouncing the often unsuspected traps of language, the limits of our cognitive mechanism and our misconceptions regarding first principles, this book shows up the reasons for such aporias, their Socratic meaning and their redeeming function. The result is a new and positive (dedramatised) reading of this extreme but fascinating aporetism.

The Emergence of Reflexivity in Greek Language

and Thought

From Homer to Plato and Beyond

Edward T. Jeremiah

Contemporary preoccupation with the self and the rise of comparative anthropology have renewed scholarly interest in the forms of personhood current in Ancient Greece. However the word which translates “self” most literally, the intensive adjective and reflexive morpheme αὐτός, and its critical role in the construction of human being have for the most part been neglected. This monograph rights the imbalance by redirecting attention to the diachronic development of the heavily marked reflexive system and its exploitation by thinkers to articulate an increasingly reflexive and non-dialogical understanding of the human subject and its world. It argues that these two developmental trajectories are connected and provides new insight into the intellectual history of subjectivity in the West.

La démonologie platonicienne

Histoire de la notion de daimōn de Platon aux derniers néoplatoniciens

Andrei Timotin

This book, a history of a religious category of ancient philosophy, is the first synthesis on the notion of daimōn in the Platonic tradition. Platonic demonology is a body of doctrine that constantly reorganized and redefined itself, from the Old Academy to the last Neoplatonists, by reinterpreting Plato’s texts concerning demons. The present work illuminates the modus operandi of this exegesis by analysing the relationship between demonology and, respectively, cosmology,

the philosophical hermeneutics of religion, and theories of the soul. This study aims to provide

a better understanding of the attempts to rationalize and to define the religious phenomenon in

Late Antiquity.

Boethius on Mind, Grammar and Logic

A Study of Boethius’ Commentaries on Peri Hermeneias

Taki Suto

Boethius (c.480-c.525/6), who is best known for his Consolation of Philosophy, has been accused of misinterpreting Aristotle’s logical works in his translations and commentaries thereof. Building on recent scholarship in the philosophy of late antiquity, this book challenges some of the past interpretations of Boethius and reveals significant features of his semantics and logic. With comparisons between his and contemporary arguments and attention to the terminology of late

antiquity, this work is of use to those interested in semantics, logic and grammar from antiquity

to the modern day. Furthermore, this book’s new conclusions aim to reinvigorate interest in this

much-maligned and poorly understood philosopher.

New Essays on Ancient Pyrrhonism

Edited by Diego E. Machuca

Scholarship on ancient Pyrrhonism has made tremendous advances over the past three decades, thanks especially to the careful reexamination of Sextus Empiricus’ extant corpus. Building on this momentum, the authors of the eight essays collected here examine some of the most vexed and intriguing exegetical and philosophical questions posed by Sextus’ presentation of this form of skepticism. The essays explore in a new light the skeptical interpretation of Plato, the differences between Pyrrhonism and Cyrenaicism, the Pyrrhonist’s stance on ordinary life, religion, language, and ethics, Sextus’ discussion of our access to our own mental states, and

the relationship between Pyrrhonism and epistemic internalism and externalism. These new

essays represent a substantial contribution to the advancement of scholarship on Pyrrhonian skepticism.

Gloses et commentaire du livre XI du Contra Proclum de Jean Philopon

Autour de la Matière première du monde

Pascal Mueller-Jourdan

The problem of the Materia Prima is certainly one of the most important challenges of late antique Physics. It is interesting to note that such a difficulty has never been focused on an exhaustive treatise in Antiquity. If the question of the matter resists any investigation, it is

because the matter is radically ‘aneideos’ (without form) even though it is the condition ‘sine

qua non’ of the existence of all forms in the sensible world. The present study proposes the first

translation in French of the entire eleventh Book of the Philoponus’ Contra Proclum (VIe s.)

which precisely discusses the status of the Prime Matter. After having clarified the context of

such a question in the Neoplatonic Alexandrian School, it puts forward a detailled step-to-step analysis of the Philoponian argument, the notions used by him and a new general theory which attempts to evaluate the pertinence and the internal coherence of his contribution to this very problematic question.

Death and Immortality in Late Neoplatonism

Studies on the Ancient Commentaries on Plato’s Phaedo

Sebastian Ramon Philipp Gertz

The belief in the immortality of the soul has been described as one of the “twin pillars of Platonism” and is famously defended by Socrates in Plato’s Phaedo. The ancient commentaries on the dialogue by Olympiodorus and Damascius offer a unique perspective on the reception of this belief in the Platonic tradition. Through a detailed discussion of topics such as suicide, the life of the philosopher and arguments for immortality, this study demonstrates the commentators’

serious engagement with problems in Plato’s text as well as the dialogue’s importance to

Neoplatonic ethics. The book will be of interest to students of Plato and the Platonic tradition,

and to those working on ancient ethics and psychology.

La raison des signes

Présages, rites, destin dans les sociétés de la méditerranée ancienne

Stella Georgoudi, Renée Koch Piettre and Francis Schmidt

How to foresee the unknown and master the unexpected? Ancient people tried to answer those questions by interpreting signs considered as divine messages. In this volume, the writers compare and examine this manifold questioning in the polytheistic and monotheistic societies of the ancient Mediterranean Sea. In the first place, it is shown how signs were ritually constructed within instituted practice of divination ; second, how, although some spontaneous

natural phenomena appeared out of any instituted context, may nevertheless constitute omens

or monition ; third, how the gods’ intervention may reveal a sort of intention in the course of

national history or individual life ; finally, the essays study the epistemology of signs at work

in some philosophical or theological elaborations, which may enlighten the tension between

oracular evidence and ritual control of signs, and between revealed facts and reasoning arguments intending to neutralize the injunctions of the divine.

Coping With the Gods

Wayward Readings in Greek Theology

Henk Versnel

Inspired by a critical reconsideration of current monolithic approaches to the study of Greek religion, this book argues that ancient Greeks displayed a disquieting capacity to validate two (or more) dissonant, if not contradictory, representations of the divine world in a complementary rather than mutually exclusive manner. From this perspective the six chapters explore problems inherent in: order vs. variety/chaos in polytheism, arbitrariness vs. justice

in theodicy, the peaceful co-existence of mono- and polytheistic theologies, human traits in

divine imagery, divine omnipotence vs. limitation of power, and ruler cult. Based on an intimate

knowledge of ancient realia and literary testimonia the book stands out for its extensive

application of relevant perceptions drawn from cultural anthropology, theology, cognitive

science, psychology, and linguistics.

Ancient Angels

Conceptualizing Angeloi in the Roman Empire

Rangar Cline

Although angels are typically associated with Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, Ancient Angels demonstrates that angels (angeloi) were also a prominent feature of non-Abrahamic religions in the Roman era. Following an interdisciplinary approach, the study uses literary, inscriptional, and archaeological evidence to examine Roman conceptions of angels, how residents of the empire venerated angels, and how Christian authorities responded to this potentially heterodox

aspect of Roman religion. The book brings together the evidence for popular beliefs about angels

in Roman religion, demonstrating the widespread nature of speculation about, and veneration

of, angels in the Roman Empire

Isis on the Nile. Egyptian Gods in Hellenistic and Roman Egypt

Proceedings of the IVth International Conference of Isis Studies, Liège, November 27-29 2008

The diffusion of the cults of Isis is recently again intensively studied. Research on this fascinating phenomenon has traditionally been characterised by its focus on L’Égypte hors d’Égypte, while developments in Hellenistic and Roman Egypt itself were often seen as

belonging to a different domain. This volume tries to overcome that unhealthy dichotomy by

studying the cults of Isis in Hellenistic and Roman Egypt itself in relation to developments in the

Mediterranean at large. The book not only presents an overview of the most important deities,

often based on new or unpublished material, but also pays ample attention to the cultural

processes behind Isis on Nile, like relations between style and identity, religious choice, social-

and cultural memory and Egypt’s view of its own past.

Jews in Byzantium

Dialectics of Minority and Majority Cultures

Edited by Robert Bonfil, Oded Irshai, Guy G. Stroumsa and Rina Talgam

In the ever increasing volume of Byzantine Studies in recent years there seems to be one very apparent void, namely, the history and culture of the Byzantine Jewry, its presence and impact on the surrounding convoluted Byzantine world between Late Antiquity until the conquest of Byzantium (1453). With the now classic but dated studies by Joshua Starr and Andrew Sharf, the collective volume at hand is an attempt to somewhat fill in this void. The articles assembled

in this volume are penned by leading scholars in the field. They present bird’s eye views of

the cultural history of the Jewish Byzantine minority, alongside a wide array of surveys and

in-depth studies of various topics. These topics pertain to the dialectics of the religious,

literary, economic and visual representation world of this alien minority within its surrounding

Byzantine hegemonic world.

Polis and Personification in Classical Athenian Art

Amy C. Smith

In this study Dr Smith investigates the use of political personifications in the visual arts of Athens in the Classical period (480-323 BCE). Whether on objects that served primarily private roles (e.g. decorated vases) or public roles (e.g. cult statues and document stelai), these personifications represented aspects of the state of Athens—its people, government, and events—as well as the virtues (e.g. Nemesis, Peitho or Persuasion, and Eirene or Peace) that underpinned it. Athenians used the same figural language to represent other places and their

peoples. This is the only study that uses personifications as a lens through which to view the

intellectual and political climate of Athens in the Classical period.

The Archaeology of Late Antique ‘Paganism’

Edited by Luke Lavan and Michael Mulryan

There is no agreement over how to name the ‘pagan’ cults of late antiquity. Clearly they were more diverse than this Christian label suggests, but also exhibited tendencies towards monotheism and internal changes which makes it difficult to describe them as ‘traditional cults’. This volume, which includes two extensive bibliographic essays, considers the decline of urban temples alongside the varying evolution of other focii of cult practice and identity. The papers reveal great regional diversity in the development of late antique paganism, and suggest that the time has come to abandon a … read moresingle compelling narrative of ‘the end of

the temples’ based on legal sources and literary accounts. Although temple destructions are

attested, in some regions the end of paganism was both gradual and untraumatic, with more co-

existence with Christianity than one might have expected.

Studies in the Archaeology and History of Caesarea Maritima

Caput Judaeae, Metropolis Palaestinae

Joseph Patrich

Caesarea Maritima, the capital of the Roman province of Judaea / Palaestina, was founded in 10/9 BCE by Herod the Great to serve as an administrative and economic center. It was named after his Roman patron Caesar Augustus, the first Roman emperor. The book, well illustrated,

presents the results of the large scale excavations at the site during the 1990’s and early 2000’s

in their wider historical and cultural context: the architectural evolution and transformation

of the thriving city from its foundation to its decline caused by the Arab conquest (640/41 CE), its conversion to a Roman colony in 71 CE, aspects of provincial administration, commerce and

economy, entertainment and religious life of its communities – Jews, Pagans, Christians and

Samaritans.

Sibyllinische Orakel 1-2

Studien und Kommentar

Olaf Waßmuth

Within the disparate collection of ancient Sibylline Oracles book 1 and 2 form a historical apocalypse reaching from the creation to the eschatological Golden Age. It is unique in integrating biblical and classical mythology. Although Christian in its present form, its origins have been debated for a long time. This study examines its different parts and tries to reconstruct a pre-Christian document. It interprets the original work as a literary evidence of

the Jewish-pagan symbiosis in Asia Minor in the imperial period. Its adaption is probably the

earliest Sibylline writing produced by Christians. The study provides a line-by-line commentary.

It contains a close examination of the tradition of Pseudo-Phocylides included in the Christian

document as well as a comparison with the Apocalypse of Peter.

Medicine and Society in Ptolemaic Egypt

Philippa Lang

Current questions over whether Hellenistic Egypt should be understood in terms of colonialism and imperialism, multicultural separatism, or integration and syncretism have never been closely studied in the context of healing. Yet illness affects and is affected by nutrition, disease and reproduction within larger questions of demography, agriculture and environment. It is crucial to every socio-economic group, all ages, and both sexes; perceptions and responses to illness are ubiquitous in all kinds of evidence, both Greek and Egyptian and from archaeology to literature. Examing all forms of healing within the specific socioeconomic and environmental constraints of the Ptolemies’ Egypt, this book explores how linguistic, cultural and ethnic

affiliations and interactions were expressed in the medical domain.

Hippocrates, On the Art of Medicine

Joel Mann

On the art of medicine, or De arte, embodies as perhaps no other ancient text the full flower of the sophistic movement of the fifth century BCE. It is a rhetorical epideixis in which forensic oratory, philosophy, and medicine are woven into an ambitious display of sophistic polymathy. Unlike much previous scholarship, however, this book does not dismiss De arte as “merely” rhetorical. Its analysis of the author’s philosophical and medical views reveals that he strove to promote a consistent and rationally grounded system capable of responding to theoretical and practical criticisms levied by those who would deny that there was such a thing as medicine or technē at all.

Cult and Koinon in Hellenistic Thessaly

Denver Graninger

Cult and Koinon in Hellenistic Thessaly examines the territorial expansion of the Thessalian League ca. 196-27 BCE and the development of the state religion of the League. Individual chapters trace the adoption of a common Thessalian calendar by new members of the League, the establishment of new regional festivals, the elaboration or reorganization of older cults, and League participation in a network of international festivals; cult could equally well enact alternatives to this political arrangement, however, and older religious traditions continued to be maintained both within new League territories and especially at Delphi. The result is a fresh

portrait of the politics of cult on the Greek mainland in the later Hellenistic period.

Forthcoming New Series:

Issues in Cultural Heritage Protection

Edited by Joris D. Kila and James A. Zeidler

For more information please visit brill.nl/ichp

Cultural heritage is continually under threat from human conflict, natural disaster or theft. The books published in this new series will contribute to the global dialogue about (a) the social value of cultural heritage as collective memory and identity, (b) how we can effectively protect cultural property in contexts of human conflict, natural disaster, or theft and looting, (c) ethical and legal consequences for institutions such as museums and universities as well as collectors and dealers when confronted with rare antiquities of unknown or with—in hindsight—politically incorrect provenance, (d) how the past is or was represented in history and the present, depending on geographical and political location and how cultural heritage is or should be protected and conserved for the future. The series will have

ISSN 221-7369

a multidisciplinary perspective which will include aspects of international law, cultural diplomacy, the role of military forces, other stakeholders such as NGOs and IOs, exploitation of cultural resources, connections with environmental aspects, discussions on “repatriation” of artefacts, national laws on ownership, illicit traffic of cultural property and the different aspects of intangible cultural property. The series will be very timely not only because of on-going armed conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan, but also due to the recent episodes of civil unrest in the Middle East (e.g., Egypt, Jordan, Libya, etc.) as well as natural disasters (e.g., Haiti, Japan). All of these varied contingencies have put cultural properties at risk and all of them merit careful analysis and scrutiny.

Heritage Under Siege

Military Implementation of Cultural Property Protection

following the 1954 Hague Convention

Joris Kila

Heritage under Siege is the result of international multidisciplinary research on the subject of military implementation of cultural property protection (CPP) in the event of conflict. The book considers the practical feasibility as well as ideal perspectives within the juridical boundaries of the 1954 Hague Convention. The situation of today’s cultural property protection is discussed. New case studies further introduce and analyze the subject. The results of field research which made it possible to follow and test processes in conflict areas including training, education, international, interagency, and interdisciplinary cooperation are presented here. This book gives a useful overview of the playing field of CPP and its players, contemporary CPP in the context of military tasks during peace keeping and asymmetric operations. It includes suggestions for future directions including possibilities to balance interests and research outcomes as well as military deliverables. A separate section deals with legal aspects.
