Abstract

Die Briefe des Synesios von Kyrene (ca. 370-413 n.Chr.), der nicht nur Philosoph und Schriftsteller, sondern auch Feldherr und Bischof war, geben Einblick in die sozialen, politischen und religiös-intellektuellen Verhältnisse seiner Zeit. Für diesen Band wurden neun Briefe übersetzt und kommentiert; sie bieten einen ersten Zugang zu Synesios' Welt, vor allem auch zur Bilderwelt seiner aus den Mythen Platons gespeisten Jenseitsvorstellungen.

Abstract

Fondée en terre thrace par le roi Philippe II de Macédoine, la cité grecque de Philippes fut, au cours de l’automne 42 av. J.-C., le théâtre de l’affrontement décisif entre l’armée des républicains Brutus et Cassius et celle des héritiers de César, Antoine et Octave. À l’issue de la bataille, Antoine décida de tirer profit du vaste territoire environnant pour y établir les vétérans des légions qui avaient combattu et pour fonder une colonie romaine. S’appuyant sur une riche documentation épigraphique, ce livre reconstitue la structure et le fonctionnement des institutions de l’entité politique qui fut substituée à la cité grecque à cette occasion, ainsi que la formation des élites dirigeantes de la colonie et les dynamiques démographiques, sociales et culturelles qui animèrent ce groupe durant plus de trois siècles, de la fondation de la colonie à la fin du iiie s. apr. J.-C. Par le biais de comparaisons avec les autres colonies fondées par Rome dans les provinces orientales de l’Empire, avec les cités grecques et avec les municipes et colonies d’Occident, l’étude s’efforce de replacer Philippes dans le cadre général des communautés locales de l’Empire romain, aussi bien que dans son contexte régional immédiat. À travers l’exemple de Philippes, ce livre montre que, bien loin d’avoir été des images statiques de Rome comme le prétend la formule célèbre d’Aulu-Gelle, les colonies, quoique dotées d’institutions calquées sur un archétype élaboré à Rome, en étaient plutôt des ramifications vivantes et autonomes, sensibles à leur environnement provincial et disposant chacune d’une coloration particulière.

Abstract

The first coherent and handy edition with commentaries of one oft he most important sources for history, administration and religious mentalities of the city of Rome in the 4th century A.D.The collection of pictures, lists and short notes, known as the "Chronography of 354" or the "Calendar of Filocalus" is a calendar handbook for the year 354 C.E. Of the thirteen texts, four are Christian documents; the remaining are witnesses of Roman administration and provide no clue for Christianity, or at times even attestations to the Roman religiosity of the Republic and the Imperial Time. The handbook contents can be distinguished by whether it has pictures or just text. Given the complexity of the present form of its constituents, the calendar handbook is an important source for the politic administrative history of the late-Constantine time, for the history of the transformation of religious mentalities, and for the success of the story of Christianity in the city of Rome. The following texts are especially noteworthy: (1) The consular fasti from the beginning of the consulate up to the year 354 CE, for the Roman History and the families that dominated it; (2) the yearly calendar for those festivals celebrated in late-Constantine time with their political and religio-historical dimension, which influenced the history of everyday life of the city; (3) the Catalogus Liberianus, the oldest Roman book of the popes, which together with the lists of the Deposito episcoporum and the Deposito martyrum, the oldest feriale of any Christian Church, is important for the Church of Rome and its conception of history. Notwithstanding a century-long history of editions and commentaries of the calendar handbook, there is up to the present no connected edition and commentary of the pertinent texts, only critical editions of individual parts. This is related to the complex tradition process and the preserved late manuscripts of the 16th and the 17th Century. This poses a range of problems, which this edition and its commentaries tackle: (a) what all was part of the original calendar (b) when did the different texts and their redactions, which lead to the expansions, come into being (c) the perennial research problem of the relationship between the traditional Roman religion and Christianity, for which the texts of the chronographs provide crucial evidence (d) the position of the calendar handbook in the history of book illustration in Late Antiquity. Furthermore, since Mommsen's classical edition, a host of individual problems have been identified, which affect very different scientific endeavours, ranging from the studies of classical antiquities to theology and from cultural sciences to astronomy. Vol. I.: lntroduction with the history of research and the manuscript tradition, Frontispice, Dedicatio, Imagines imperatorum, Natales Caesarum, the week of the planets, the months.

Abstract

The volume, which has emerged from an international conference of the same title, unites a range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary contributions on invasions of Goths and other Germanic tribes into the Roman Empire, focusing primarily on the third-century CE. The newly discovered fragments of the lost work Scythica by the third-century historian Dexippus of Athens, the so-called Scythica Vindobonensia alias Dexippus Vindobonensis, which survived in a Greek palimpsest kept in the Austrian National Library in Vienna, have great impact on the study of this field. The contributions explore the Vienna fragments in their historical and historiographical contexts, from the Roman to the Byzantine Era, and the history of the invasions themselves.
