The volume highlights important aspects of ancient (especially Christian) Latin literature and its influence in the Middle Ages and beyond.
The papers collected in this Festschrift in honour of Rita Beyers, Professor Emerita of Latin at the University of Antwerp and Director of the Corpus Christianorum, Series Latina and Continuatio Mediaevalis, focus on ancient (especially Christian) Latin literature and its influence in the Middle Ages and beyond.
In the first section, new light is shed on some important apocryphal texts from the second to the tenth century. The second part is devoted to literary and doctrinal aspects of works produced in the patristic era. The third part brings together a number of micro-historical studies on medieval (Latin, Byzantine, and vernacular) literature. The papers of the fourth section present some little-known Neo-Latin texts and offer a fresh analysis of the reception of ancient Christian texts in modern French and English literature. The volume, which contains several critical editions of previously unedited texts, concludes with two essays musing on the art of textual editing and the quintessence of philology.

As a genre situated at the crossroad of rhetoric and fiction, declamatio offers the freedom to experiment with new forms of discourse. Placing the literariness of declamatio into the spotlight, this volumeshowcases declamation as a realm of genuine literary creation with its own theoretical underpinning, literary technique and generic conventions. Focusing on the oeuvre of (Ps)Quintilian, this volumedemonstrates that these texts constitute a genre on their own, the rhetorical and literary framework of which remains not yet fully mapped.It is of interest to students and scholars of Rhetoric and Roman Literature.

Scholars in the fields of late antique Christianity, neoplatonism, New Testament, art history, and rabbinics examine issues related to authority, identity, and change in religious and philosophical traditions of late antiquity. The specific focus of the volume is the examination of cultural producers and their particular viewpoints and agendas in an attempt to shed new light on the religious thinkers, texts, and material remains of late antiquity. The essays explore the major creative movements of the era, examining the strategies used to develop and designate orthodoxies and orthopraxies. This collection of essays reinterprets dialogues between individuals and groups, illuminating the mutual competition and influence among these ancient thinkers and communities.

The Etruscan city of Caere and eleven other Etruscan city-states were among the first urban centers in ancient Italy. Roman descriptions of Etruscan cities highlight their wealth, beauty, and formidable defenses. Although Caere left little written historical record outside of funerary inscriptions, its complex story can be deciphered by analyzing surviving material culture, including architecture, tomb paintings, temples, sanctuaries, and materials such as terracotta, bronze, gold, and amber found in Etruscan crafts. Studying Caere provides valuable insight not only into Etruscan history and culture but more broadly into urbanism and the development of urban centers across ancient Italy.
Comprehensive in scope, Caere is the first English-language book dedicated to the study of its eponymous city. Collecting the work of an international team of scholars, it features chapters on a wide range of topics, such as Caere's formation and history, economy, foreign relations, trade networks, art, funerary traditions, built environment, religion, daily life, and rediscovery. Extensively illustrated throughout, Caere presents new perspectives on and analysis of not just Etruscan civilization but also the city's role in the wider pan-Mediterranean basin.

ix-142 pages

The Roman army was one of the most astounding organizations in the ancient world, and much of the success of the Roman empire can be attributed to its soldiers. Archaeological remains and ancient texts provide detailed testimonies that have allowed scholars to understand and reconstruct the army's organisation and activities. This interest has traditionally worked in tandem with the study of Roman frontiers. Historically, the early imperial period, and in particular the emergence of the frontiers, has been the focus of research. During those investigations, however, the remains of the later Roman army were also frequently encountered, if not always understood. Recent decades have brought a burgeoning interest in not only the later Roman army, but also late antiquity more widely.

Rome ne s'est pas construite en trois jours. La doctrine chrétienne non plus. L'Église telle que nous la connaissons aujourd'hui, organisée autour de trois confessions (catholique, orthodoxe, protestante), établie sur des dogmes et structurée par des hiérarchies, s'est bâtie sur plusieurs siècles entre débats, volonté d'unité et désaccords profonds.
D'Origène à Augustin, en passant par Ignace, Irénée ou encore Basile de Césarée, parcourant le IIe siècle jusqu'au Ve, du monde latin au monde hellénophone, de l'Orient à l'Occident, cette étude réunit les meilleurs spécialistes qui présentent des exemples significatifs de constructions doctrinales dans l'Antiquité chrétienne. Ces débats nourrissent l'élaborationd'une théologie qui, par des voies diverses, a atteint en trois siècles sa maturité intellectuelle et spirituelle.
Les premiers siècles de notre ère ont certainement été ceux qui ont le plus marqué l'histoire du christianisme, cet ouvrage les met en lumière.

À l'occasion du départ à la retraite de Jean-Daniel Dubois de la direction d'études « Gnose et Manichéisme » à l'École pratique des hautes études en 2015, plusieurs de ses collègues et amis ont tenu à lui rendre hommage. La diversité des thèmes, des écrits et des communautés culturelles et linguistiques étudiés dans les quarante-quatre contributions ici publiées, témoigne de la richesse du parcours intellectuel de Jean-Daniel Dubois, lequel s'étend des oasis d'Égypte jusqu'à la Route de la Soie.
Ce volume s'adresse aux spécialistes de la Méditerranée, du Proche-Orient et de l'Extrême-Orient anciens. Il intéressera les historiens des religions, particulièrement ceux des mouvements chrétiens - dont les courants gnostiques -, du manichéisme, des cultes polythéistes et de l'islam, les philologues ainsi que les historiens de la philosophie de l'Antiquité tardive.
