103 Ehlen, Oliver VENANTIUS-INTERPRETATIONEN Rhetorische Und Generische Transgressionen Beim "Neuen Orpheus"
Franz Steiner Verlag 2011 3515098720 / 9783515098724 Softcover Fine 
Altertumswissenschaftliches Kolloquium 22; 479 pages; German text. German description: Am Ende der klassischen literarischen Tradition steht ein heute fast vergessener, aber ausserst produktiver Autor, der lateinische Dichter Venantius Fortunatus aus dem sechsten Jahrhundert nach Christus. Obwohl er den grossten Teil seines Lebens im Merowingerreich in enger Verbindung zum Kloster der heiligen Radegunde in Poitiers verbringt, stellt er sich doch in die Tradition der lateinischen Literatur und versucht in den verschiedenen Gattungen, in denen er sich literarisch betatigt, diese Tradition in formaler und inhaltlicher Hinsicht zu erweitern, um sich so als aneuer Orpheus einen Platz in der Geschichte der Literatur zu sichern. Das Oeuvre des Venantius Fortunatus umfasst neben elf Buchern Carmina, einem Martinsepos in vier Buchern noch zahlreiche Heiligenviten in Prosa. Anhand der Interpretation ausgewahlter Beispiele aus den einzelnen Gattungen, die in seinem Werk greifbar sind, zeigt Oliver Ehlen, dass das typisch antike Prinzip der aAemulatio auch bei einem Dichter des sechsten Jahrhunderts noch virulent ist.

Very faint shelfwear. ; Many of the institutions fundamental to the role of men and women in today's society have their origins in late antiquity. This revisionist study offers a comprehensive look at how Christian women of this time initiated alternative, ascetic ways of living, both with and without men. The author studies how these practices were institutionalized, and why they were later either eliminated or transformed by a new Christian Roman elite of men now thought of as the founding fathers. ; Oxford Classical Monographs; 464 pages

131 Grig, Lucy & Gavin Kelly (Eds. ) TWO ROMES Rome and Constantinople in Late Antiquity
Oxford University Press 2015 019024108X / 9780190241087 Paperback Very Good 
Faint crease to front wrap. Very light shelfwear. ; The city of Constantinople was named New Rome or Second Rome very soon after its foundation in AD 324; over the next two hundred years it replaced the original Rome as the greatest city of the Mediterranean. In this unified essay collection, prominent international scholars examine the changing roles and perceptions of Rome and Constantinople in Late Antiquity from a range of different disciplines and scholarly perspectives. The seventeen chapters cover both the comparative development and the shifting status of the two cities. Developments in politics and urbanism are considered, along with the cities' changing relationships with imperial power, the church, and each other, and their evolving representations in both texts and images. These studies present important revisionist arguments and new interpretations of significant texts and events. This comparative perspective allows the neglected subject of the relationship between the two Romes to come into focus while avoiding the teleological distortions common in much past scholarship. An introductory section sets the cities, and their comparative development, in context. Part Two looks at topography, and includes the first English translation of the Notitia of Constantinople. The following section deals with politics proper, considering the role of emperors in the two Romes and how rulers interacted with their cities. Part Four then considers the cities through the prism of literature, in particular through the distinctively late antique genre of panegyric. The fifth group of essays considers a crucial aspect shared by the two cities: their role as Christian capitals. Lastly, a provocative epilogue looks at the enduring Roman identity of the post-Heraclian Byzantine state. Thus, Two Romes not only illuminates the study of both cities but also enriches our understanding of the late Roman world in its entirety. ; Oxford Studies in Late Antiquity; 496 pages

Faint bump to lower front corner with faint crease. Else fine. ; Le présent livre est une synthèse des recherches contemporaines sur la vie de Simplicius et sur trois de ses cinq commentaires (sur le Manuel d'Épictète, le De anima et les Catégories d'Aristote). La partie biographique de l'ouvrage met en évidence le rôle historique de ce philosophe néoplatonicien, originaire de la province de Cilicie en Asie Mineure, ayant étudié à Alexandrie et à Athènes et fini sa vie comme enseignant, selon toute vraisemblance, en Syrie à proximité de la frontière perse. Le rôle de Simplicius dans l'histoire de la pensée est celui d'un médiateur entre la philosophie gréco-romaine et celle en langue syriaque, laquelle à son tour irriguera la philosophie arabe à ses débuts. La seconde partie du livre est consacrée à des questions dogmatiques et d'authenticité; son but est de faire ressortir le programme pédagogique et les méthodes propres aux commentateurs néoplatoniciens, facteurs trop souvent négligés par les interprètes modernes; 311 pages

Dustjacket has minor shelfwear and rubbing. Minor bumping to back top corner of book. ; This is a scholarly study of the collision of Goths and Romans in the fourth and fifth centuries. Gothic tribes played a major role in the destruction of the western half of the Roman Empire between 350 and 500, establishing successor kingdoms in southern France and Spain (the Visigoths) , andin Italy (the Ostrogoths). Our historical understanding of this `Migration Period' has been based upon the Gothic historian Jordanes, whose mid-sixth-century Getica suggests that the Visigoths and Ostrogoths entered the Empire already established as coherent groups and simply conquered new territories. Using the availablecontemporary sources, Peter Heather is able to show that, on the contrary, the Visigoths and Ostrogoths were new and unprecedentedly large social groupings at this time, and that many Gothic societies failed even to survive the upheavals of the Migration Period. Dr Heather's scholarly study explores the development of Visigothic and Ostrogothic societies, their rise to power, and the complicated interactions with the Romans which helped bring about the fall of the Roman Empire. ; Oxford Historical Monographs; 1.18 x 8.8 x 5.8 Inches; 396 pages

Gothic tribes played a major role in the destruction of the western half of the Roman Empire between 350 and 500, establishing successor kingdoms in southern France and Spain (the Visigoths) , andin Italy (the Ostrogoths). Our historical understanding of this `Migration Period' has been based upon the Gothic historian Jordanes, whose mid-sixth-century Getica suggests that the Visigoths and Ostrogoths entered the Empire already established as coherent groups and simply conquered new territories. Using the availablecontemporary sources, Peter Heather is able to show that, on the contrary, the Visigoths and Ostrogoths were new and unprecedentedly large social groupings at this time, and that many Gothic societies failed even to survive the upheavals of the Migration Period. Dr Heather's scholarly study explores the development of Visigothic and Ostrogothic societies, their rise to power, and the complicated interactions with the Romans which helped bring about the fall of the Roman Empire. ; Oxford Historical Monographs; 1.18 x 8.8 x 5.8 Inches; 396 pages

143 Heather, Peter THE RESTORATION OF ROME Barbarian Popes and Imperial Pretenders
Oxford University Press 2014 0199368511 / 9780199368518 Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 
In 476 AD, the last of Rome's emperors, known as "Augustulus," was deposed by a barbarian general, the son of one of Attila the Hun's henchmen. With the imperial vestments dispatched to Constantinople, the curtain fell on the Roman empire in Western Europe, its territories divided among successor kingdoms constructed around barbarian military manpower. But, if the Roman Empire was dead, Romans across much of the old empire still lived, holding on to their lands, their values, and their institutions. The conquering barbarians, responding toRome's continuing psychological dominance and the practical value of many of its institutions, were ready to reignite the imperial flame and enjoy the benefits. As Peter Heather shows in dazzling biographical portraits, each of the three greatest immediate contenders for imperial power--Theoderic, Justinian, and Charlemagne--operated with a different power base but was astonishingly successful in his own way. Though each in turn managed to put back together enough of the old Roman West to stake a plausible claim to the Western imperial title, none of their empires long outlived their founders' deaths. Not until the reinvention of the papacy in the eleventh century would Europe's barbarians find the means to establish a new kind of Roman Empire, one that has lasted a thousand years. A sequel to the bestselling Fall of the Roman Empire, The Restoration of Rome offers a captivating narrative of the death of an era and the birth of the Catholic Church. ; 488 pages

144 Heather, Peter THE VISIGOTHS FROM THE MIGRATION PERIOD TO THE SEVENTH CENTURY An Ethnographic Perspective
Boydell Press 1999 0851157629 / 9780851157627 Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Dustjacket has very minor rubbing. ; Studies in Historical Archaeoethnology; 1.8 x 9.77 x 6.98 Inches; 488 pages; Between 376 and 476 the Roman Empire in western Europe was dismantled by aggressive outsiders, `barbarians' as the Romans labelled them. Chief among these were the Visigoths, a new force of previously separate Gothic and other groups from south-west France, initially settled by the Romans but subsequently, from the middle of the fifth century, achieving total independence from the failing Roman Empire, and extending their power from the Loire to the Straits of Gibraltar. These studies draw on literary and archaeological evidence to address important questions thrown up by the history of the Visigoths and of the kingdom they generated: the historical processes which led to their initial creation; the emergence of the Visigothic kingdom in the fifth century; and the government, society, culture and economy of the `mature' kingdom of the sixth and seventh centuries. A valuable feature of the collection, reflecting the switch of the centre of the Visigothic kingdom from France to Spain from the beginning of the sixth century, is the inclusion, in English, of current Spanish scholarship.

146 Hedrick, Jr. , Charles W. HISTORY AND SILENCE Purge and Rehabilitation of Memory in Late Antiquity
University of Texas Press 2000 0292731213 / 9780292731219 Hardcover Fine in Very Good dust jacket 
Book is fine. DJ has some shelfwear and light soiling. ; Xxvi, 338pp. The ruling elite in ancient Rome sought to eradicate even the memory of their deceased opponents through a process now known as damnatio memoriae. These formal and traditional practices included removing the person's name and image from public monuments and inscriptions, making it illegal to speak of him, and forbidding funeral observances and mourning. Paradoxically, however, while these practices dishonoured the person's memory, they did not destroy it. Indeed, a later turn of events could restore the offender not only to public favour but also to re-inclusion in the public record. This book examines the process of purge and rehabilitation of memory in the person of Virius Nicomachus Flavianus (? -394). Charles Hedrick describes how Flavian was condemned for participating in the rebellion against the Christian emperor Theodosius the Great - and then restored to the public record a generation later as members of the newly Christianised senatorial class sought to reconcile their pagan past and Christian present. By selectively remembering and forgetting the actions of Flavian, Hedrick argues, the Roman elite honoured their ancestors while participating in profound social, cultural, and religious change. ; 338 pages

Society of Biblical Literature 2012 1589836448 / 9781589836440 Paperback Near Fine 
Very light bump to top of spine else fine. ; This book provides the first translations in English and a preliminary analysis of the commentaries on the chreia chapter in Aphthonius's standard Progymnasmata, a classroom guide on composition. The chreia, or anecdote, was a popular form that preserved the wisdom of philosophers, kings, generals, and sophists. Aphthonius used the chreia to provide instructions on how to construct an argument and to confirm the validity of the chreia by means of an eight-paragraph essay. His treatment of this classroom exercise, however, was so brief that commentators needed to clarify, explain, and supplement what he had written as well as to situate the chreia as preparation for the study of rhetoric the kinds of public speeches and the parts of a speech. By means of these Byzantine commentaries, we can thus see more clearly how this important form and its confirmation were taught in classrooms for over a thousand years. ; Writings from the Greco-Roman World; 345 pages
