Abstract

Since the beginning of the twentieth century, hundreds of thousands of documents of all sorts have been unearthed in China, opening whole new fields of study and transforming our modern understanding of ancient China. While these discoveries have necessarily taken place in China, Western scholars have also contributed to the study of these documents throughout this entire period. This book provides a comprehensive survey of the contributions of these Western scholars to the field of Chinese paleography, and especially to study of oracle-bone inscriptions, bronze and stone inscriptions, and manuscripts written on bamboo and silk. Each of these topics is provided with a comprehensive narrative history of studies by Western scholars, as well as an exhaustive bibliography and biographies of important scholars in the field. It is also supplied with a list of Chinese translations of these studies, as well as a complete index of authors and their works. Whether the reader is interested in the history of ancient China, ancient Chinese paleographic documents, or just in the history of the study of China as it has developed in the West, this book provides one of the most complete accounts available to date.

Abstract

That inscriptions are not only texts but also material objects of specific materiality and presence is one of the recent central insights of ancient epigraphy. This understanding is applied here for the first time systematically, across different regions and over an entire epoch, by examining the change in the inscriptions culture in late antiquity with a view of the Italian peninsula.

Abstract

Η πόλη της Καστοριάς σε κομβικό γεωγραφικό σημείο της δυτικής Μακεδονίας, γνωστή στη λαϊκή παράδοση για τις «τριακόσιες εκκλησίες» δεν είναι άγνωστη στην ελληνική και διεθνή βιβλιογραφία. Το βιβλίο της κας Ευγενίας Δρακοπούλου, που σε διαφορετική μορφή υποστηρίχθηκε ως διδακτορική διατριβή με τη σοφή καθοδήγηση τον καθηγητή κ. Νίκου Οικονομίδη, έρχεται να προσφέρει την πρώτη επιστημονική εκδοχή της ιστορίας μιας πόλεως, τεκμηριωμένη από τη συστηματική μελέτη των γραπτών επιγραφών, όσων σώζονται ή σώζονταν σε παλιότερες εποχές, σε αρκετά σημεία έως τώρα αμφισβητούμενα. Στα σχετικά κεφάλαια, που είναι από τα πιο σημαντικά του βιβλίου, η προσφορά δεν έγκειται μόνο στο ότι γνωστές επιγραφές δημοσιεύονται με παλαιογραφική ακρίβεια, αλλά στο ότι προστίθενται τρεις βασικές και άγνωστες έως τώρα. Επιπλέον προσφέρονται εδώ λύσεις οριστικές σε προβλήματα αναγνώσεως και ερμηνείας ορισμένων επιγραφών που αρκετά πρόχειρα είχαν προσφερθεί από υψηλού κύρους συγγραφείς με συνέπεια να τεθεί το ιστορικό ψευόοπρόβλημα εάν η Καστοριά ήταν τόπος εξορίας ή πολιτιστικής άνθησης τον 12ο αιώνα. Η Χριστιανική Αρχαιολογική Εταιρεία με ιδιαίτερη ικανοποίηση περιέλαβε στις εκδόσεις της και σήμερα προσφέρει στο επιστημονικό κοινό το πόνημα αυτό που αποτελεί ώριμο καρπό μακρών αναζητήσεων και πραγματώσεων.

Abstract

Comment les savoirs sont-ils produits ? Comment se transmettent-ils ? Quelle approche adopter pour apprendre à les observer ? Qu’il s’agisse d’un laboratoire, d’une agora grecque, d’un jardin botanique, d’une table de travail ou d’une bibliothèque, chaque lieu de savoir possède une dynamique propre, conséquence de son histoire et de ses spécificités. En mêlant l’observation des pratiques à l’interprétation des méthodes de pensée, cet ouvrage étudie les lieux de l’activité savante dans une ap...

Abstract

Les portes et les murailles de Damas, inscrites depuis 1979 au patrimoine mondial de l’Unesco, constituent aujourd’hui un témoignage unique sur les fortifications musulmanes à l’époque médiévale. Cet ouvrage se propose d’étudier cet ensemble monumental sur le temps long, depuis l’Antiquité jusqu’à l’époque mamlouke, à travers une triple approche architecturale, historique et épigraphique. Les modifications du tracé de la muraille, l’évolution des organes défensifs répondant aux évolutions techniques, la place de cette enceinte dans la société damascaine, constituent le cœur de cette étude abondamment illustrée de plans et de relevés effectués sur le terrain entre 2008 et 2011 ainsi que de photographies anciennes et contemporaines.
