Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

'Egypt in the Byzantine World, 300–700 is warmly recommended to every student of Late Antiquity.' Scripta Classica Israelica

'As a whole the volume covers an extremely wide range of topics across the entire scholarly spectrum of research into Byzantine Egypt, while each contribution successfully offers lucid and penetrating analyses of specific topics. This book will quickly and deservedly find a wide readership among all those interested in Egypt in the Byzantine world, and will no doubt serve as a helpful spur to future research.' Bryn Mawr Classical Review

Présentation de l'éditeur

Egypt in the period from the reign of the emperor Constantine to the Arab conquest was both a vital part of the Late Roman and Byzantine world, participating fully in the culture of its wider Mediterranean society, and a distinctive milieu, launched on a path to developing the Coptic Christian culture that we see fully only after the end of Byzantine rule. This 2007 book is the first comprehensive survey of Egypt to treat this entire period including the first half-century of Arab rule. Twenty-one renowned specialists present the history, society, economy, culture, religious institutions, art and architecture of the period. Topics covered range from elite literature to mummification and from monks to Alexandrian scholars. A full range of Egypt's uniquely rich source materials - literature, papyrus documents, letters, and archaeological remains - gives exceptional depth and vividness to this portrait of a society, and recent archaeological discoveries are described and illustrated.

Roger Bagnall expertise in early Christian Egypt is refreshing as his compendium, that takes the reader across four centuries 11 août 2014

*****
"This is an excellent collection of essays, each of which deserves much more comment than can be reasonably expected here."--BCMR

This is an admirable compendium of Byzantine Egypt history, offering a lucid and rational analysis of topics on its society, culture, religious life, art and economy, during the 4th to the 7th CE. The essays portray Egypt within its mediaeval Mediterranean world to the emergence of its Coptic identity, as a distinctive tradition of literary and religious culture.

The distinguished scholarly contributors represent two generation of Coptologists who established their expertise with the Chenoboskion Coptic Gnostic Library, Nag-Hamady, led by Stephen Emmel and James Goehring. Within the second generation are few amazing experts in various facets of the Copto-Byzantine Culture, Environment/ society, and Church/ Monasticism.

Roger Bagnall expertise in early Christian Egypt is refreshing as his introduction, that takes the reader across four centuries of an era that covered long struggles over doctrine and ecclesiastic power in Byzantium. He wrote an informing brief review, without overlooking the megalopolice of Alexandria. Its role over Mediterranean cities, and heroic defense Athanasius, Cyril's theology, by or John Philoponus achievements.

Alan Cameron starts Part I on culture, with 'Poets and Pagans', refreshing the memory of some Coptic celebrities in Nonnus, while he takes the analysis of a massive collection on a lonely but beautiful subject. He observes that, "The mere fact that we can name actually so many, has often been thought to imply an organized pagan opposition." He adds, "The fact that they were an outlawed minority, in a Christian world, no doubt created certain solidarity."

In "Philosophy in its social content," Leslie MacCoull calls on two Aristotle commentators, Simplicus and the 'Miaphysite John Philoponus' writing, "Philosophy was not just a curriculum but an enacted way of life." She argues particularly for Philoponus. Her usage of theological terms proves her category, as she explores his writings, "Three-act drama" of his break with Aristotle,'De anima', in defense contra Chalcedon, and 'De Opificio Mundi'.

Coptic Architecture, a favorite subject of mine, is articulated by Peter Grossmann, to my joy, as he links late antiquety Egypt to the Fifth century great basilica of St. Menas. He writes, "Throughout Egypt, the predominant church type was three or five aisled basillica with the main axis pointing east-west. An apse was positioned at the narrow east end, flanked in both sides, by at least two sides chambers (pastophoria)," in addition to many church plot plans (blue prints).

A great book, with short essays by specialists in particular aspects of the Byzantine Egypt. A very good overview of the subject.
