355 Dészpa, Mihály Loránd PERIPHERIE-DENKEN Transformation Und Adaption Des Gottes Silvanus in Den (1.-4. Jahrhundert N. Chr. )
Franz Steiner Verlag 2012 351509945X / 9783515099455 Softcover Very Good+ 
Faint bump to base of spine. Very light shelfwear else fine. ; Silvanus war einer der populärsten Götter in den Donauprovinzen. Er prägte das religiöse Leben verschiedener sozialer Schichten der Provinzialbevölkerung vor allem in den wichtigsten Städten in diesem Teil des Imperium Romanum. Silvanus unterscheidet sich dabei allerdings radikal von seinem italischen Archetypus. Dies wurde in der Forschung mit dem Phänomen des Synkretismus zwischen dem italischen Gott und einem illyrischen, gallischen sowie dakischen Gott erklärt. In Peripherie-Denken wird für diese Differenz eine neue Erklärung angeboten. Hierbei liegt der analytische Fokus nicht auf dem 'ontologischen' "Warum" der Begründung, sondern auf dem funktionalen "Wie" der Beschreibung: Die Prozesse, die die Transformationen des italischen in den Silvanus der Donauprovinzen strukturieren, stehen im Zentrum der Untersuchung. Ein anderer Schwerpunkt liegt in der Analyse des Beitrages der Religion für die soziale Integration in einer globalen Konstellation. Das Buch stellt nicht nur religiöse Prozesse in einem imperialen Kontext dar, es leistet auch einen Ansatz für eine neue methodologische Herangehensweise an das System Religion. ; Potsdamer Altertumswissenschaftliche Beiträge (Pawb) Band 35; 340 pages

367 Dodgeon, Michael H. & Samuel N. C. Lieu (eds. ) THE ROMAN EASTERN FRONTIER AND THE PERSIAN WARS AD 226-363 A Documentary History
Routledge 1993 0415103177 / 9780415103176 Softcover Near Fine 
Minor shelfwear. ; 1.45 x 8.48 x 5.53 Inches; 460 pages; While most studies of the internal and international conflicts of Rome's 3rd century crisis are recorded in a scattered and unsatisfactory manner, this documentary history of the period brings together the main sources, of which the better ones--those not in Latin-- are not easily accessible. The volume includes translations of such diverse sources as Zosimus, John Malalas, Al-Tabari and Moses of Chorene--documents which, when viewed in combination, provide a clearer picture of this complex, fraught period of Roman history. The editors also provide a selection of inscriptions, papyri and oriental sources, generous notes, a detailed bibliography and maps. Comprehensive in scope, The Roman Eastern Frontier and the Persian Wars covers such topics as the rise of the Sassanians, the Persian expedition of Gordian III, the second and third campaigns of Shapur I against the Roman Empire, the rise and fall of Palmyra, the early and later wars of Constantius II, as well as the Persian expedition of Julian.

Dustjacket has minor shelfwear and rubbing. Light Bumping to bottom of spine. ; Ancient Society and History; 1.68 x 8.76 x 8.78 Inches; 632 pages; Historians who viewed imperial Rome in terms of a conflict between pagans and Christians have often regarded the emperor Constantine's conversion as the triumph of Christianity over paganism. But in Constantine and the Bishops, historian H. A. Drake offers a fresh and more nuanced understanding of Constantine's rule and, especially, of his relations with Christians. Constantine, Drake suggests, was looking not only for a god in whom to believe but also a policy he could adopt. Uncovering the political motivations behind Constantine's policies, Drake shows how those policies were constructed to ensure the stability of the empire and fulfill Constantine's imperial duty in securing the favor of heaven. Despite the emperor's conversion to Christianity, Drake concludes, Rome remained a world filled with gods and with men seeking to depose rivals from power. A book for students and scholars of ancient history and religion, Constantine and the Bishops shows how Christian belief motivated and gave shape to imperial rule.

378 Drinkwater, John & Hugh Elton (Eds. ) FIFTH-CENTURY GAUL A Crisis of Identity?
Cambridge University Press 1992 0521414857 / 9780521414852 Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket 
Small tears at bottom of spine panel of DJ. Former owner's bookplate on inner cover. ; 398 pages; The papers presented in this book take as their subject the military, political and economic changes forced upon the inhabitants of Gaul during the fifth century AD. They seek to describe and explain how Gallo-Romans of all orders of society reacted to barbarian invasion and the growing debilitation of the western imperial government. The unusually wide range of topics dealt with allows the Gallic experience to be viewed and interpreted from many different directions. Much is made of the problematic, because highly subjective, nature of the literary sources; but close attention is also given to modern advances in our understanding of the archaeological and numismatic data. The whole presents a picture of a society under immense stress, as the people of the Gallic provinces abandoned, perforce, their allegiance to Roman emperors and yielded to the rule of Germanic kings, while yet preserving a significant element of their late antique culture.
