  • Eusebius’s “Fall Narrative” in Demonstratio Evangelica 4.6–10:
           Demonic Removal of the National Angelic Boundaries and the Watchers
           Tradition
    • Abstract: Eusebius of Caesarea is thought to represent a common christological trajectory of the early fourth century.1 Recent analyses of Eusebius’s christology highlight the Son’s cosmic mediating role. In her Christology and Cosmology, J. Rebecca Lyman argues that Eusebius conceives the Son as intermediary par excellence, since for Eusebius the Logos enjoys free eternal generation from the Father (who alone is ἀγένητος), so as to be distinct from Him, and yet the Son shares essential qualities with the Father, so as to be His exact image.2 Through the Word’s incarnation, humans are able to behold God “and so receive the power of God for deification.”3 Eusebius emphasizes the divine instruction of the Logos, whose ...

  • Between Liturgy and School: Reassessing the Performative Context of
           Ephrem’s Madrāšê
    • Abstract: The last century of scholarship on Ephrem has proceeded as an unmaking of his classical portrait.1 Ephrem himself seems to have been anomalous in the fourth century: celibate, but not quite a monk; an ecclesial author, but neither bishop, priest, nor radical ascetic; a teacher, but in songs composed for women.2 The Ephrem of fourth-century Nisibis and Edessa has been pieced together deliberately, mosaic-like, over the last sixty years, on the basis of what are now recognized as his authentic works—these discovered primarily through the tireless textual excavations of Edmund Beck, undertaken between the 1940s and 1980s.3In the years following Ephrem’s death in 373, this Syriac poet received a makeover in Greek ...

  • Subversive Pilgrimages: Barsauma in Jerusalem
    • Abstract: Of the lengthy panegyric, the Vita Barsaumae (VB), that Samuel dedicated to his teacher the notorious ascetic Barsauma, the Jerusalem episodes have become the cynosure of a great deal of scholarly attention ever since François Nau translated and analyzed the relevant passages.1 With the forthcoming new edition and translation of Andrew Palmer it should be possible, at last, to reevaluate these passages not only on their own merit but also within the larger context of the narrative.2 Thus while the presence of the empress Eudocia in Jerusalem largely determined the course of Barsauma’s own pilgrimage progress, the thread of monk-royalty relations in general forms an important leitmotif of the entire Vita.3 Above ...

  • Holy Images and Holy Matter: Images in the Performance of Miracles in the
           Age before Iconoclasm
    • Abstract: Sometime before 668, one hapless suppliant, lamenting his son’s illness, walked into the Church of John the Forerunner in Constantinople, and set himself before the saint’s image. He placed before himself a candle and an offering of wine and began to venerate the saint. Then, he stood up and departed, trusting that the saint would intercede for him and his son before God. According to later iconophilic interpretation, he looked through the image to John, the prototype behind it, and returned home, trusting in the saint’s intercession. But is it so simple' Such a view might obfuscate what is most important in this scene. For before leaving, he took up “the burnt residue of the candle” and put it “into a vessel.”1 ... Read More

  • Doctrine and Power: Theological Controversy and Christian Leadership in
           the Later Roman Empire by Carlos R. Galvão-Sobrinho (review)
    • Abstract: This volume by Galvão-Sobrinho, a transformed doctoral dissertation, seeks to address the question of why the Arian controversy in the fourth century was so divisive. The argument here is that the imperial imperative for unity and uniformity not only gave squabbling bishops a new avenue through which to try and silence their opposition (exacerbating rather than diminishing conflict), but led to growing dissent and willingness to engage in controversy. There was an increasingly confrontational posture as church leaders saw not only points of theology but their own authority under threat. In fact, the Arian controversy created a new style and form of the exercise of episcopal power as leaders sought to engage in the ... Read More

  • Monumenta sanctorum: Rom und Mailand als Zentren des frühen Christentums:
           Märtyrerkult und Kirchenbau unter den Bischöfen Damasus und Ambrosius by
           Markus Löx (review)
    • Abstract: In this volume Löx examines the ways in which, in the late fourth century, Damasus in Rome and Ambrose in Milan promoted the cult of the saints. The work opens with a chapter providing a fairly standard, though up-to-date, biography of both individuals, which manages to highlight nicely the contrast between the two men’s rise to the episcopacy. The next chapter looks at the cult of the saints in both Rome and Milan in terms of the architectural projects of both bishops in light of the differing conditions in the two cities, particularly the ways in which they did not engage in new building works but drew attention to existing sites. This flows into Chapter Three, in which there is consideration of the epigrams ... Read More

  • Controlling Contested Places: Late Antique Antioch and the Spatial
           Politics of Religious Controversy by Christine Shepardson (review)
    • Abstract: In this timely book, Christine Shepardson shows how the field of late ancient Christian studies stands to benefit from the “Spatial Turn.” Shepardson’s book traces the development and contested space of late antique Antioch by shifting our focus away from theological debates alone and asks us to consider physical landscape as well. Admittedly, Shepardson notes, one of the limitations historians run into when attempting to study the built landscape of Antioch is that very little material evidence remains. What does remain is the literary afterlife and rhetorical descriptions of spaces long lost that attempt to control and manipulate the past.In an interesting move, Shepardson skirts the more familiar field of ...

  • The Consolation of Boethius as Poetic Liturgy by Stephen Blackwood
           (review)
    • Abstract: For centuries readers have appreciated the solace offered by the Consolation of Philosophy, and students of the work have long attributed its effectiveness to the author’s ideas, images, and style read silently from the printed page. In this ambitious and perceptive study, Stephen Blackwood demonstrates that Boethius carefully designed the aural component of the Consolation, especially its poetry, to play a central role in the work’s avowed therapeutic purpose. Blackwood bases his arguments on several points, including the vision of music as therapy in Boethius’s De institutione musica, the professed aim in the Consolation of offering poetry as medicine for the soul, Boethius’s attention to meter and metrical ...

  • Dreams and Visions in the Early Middle Ages: The Reception and Use of
           Patristic Ideas, 400–900 by Jesse Keskiaho (review)
    • Abstract: Against the backdrop of an already solid scholarship of dreams and visions, Keskiaho’s work produces a pleasant surprise. The book of interest addresses the reception of patristic views on dreams and visions in western Christianity up until the tenth century. In particular, it examines the contexts within which have been established authoritative Christian teachings on dreams, and how the processes involved were part of a broader phenomenon, namely, the emerging medieval culture. The analyzed sources include writings by Augustine of Hippo and Gregory the Great, hagiographies, and works by Carolingian theologians. Methodologically interesting is that these sources are considered both from the viewpoint of their ... Read More

  • Imagine No Religion: How Modern Abstracts Hide Ancient Realities by Carlin
           A. Barton, Daniel Boyarin (review)
    • Abstract: In the introduction to their provocative new monograph, Carlin Barton and Daniel Boyarin describe the volume as an effort “to do the ‘impossible’ work of making an incommensurable thought world comprehensible without resorting to the pre-sorted categories produced in the scholar’s study” (6). Put simply, they want scholars of the ancient world to cease translating the words religio and thrēskeia as “religion.” They argue that using the word “religion” to classify certain practices and ideas as parts within a common whole is to graft distinctly modern associations and abstractions onto a set of far more nuanced, polyphonic, and socially embedded ancient concepts. While Barton and Boyarin stress that ancient writers ... Read More

  • The History of the ‘Slave of Christ’: From Jewish Child to Christian
           Martyr by Aaron Michael Butts, Simcha Gross (review)
    • Abstract: A story about a boy who barges in on his father’s dinner party wearing a new golden earring sounds more like the plot of an after school special than a sophisticated literary text. But saints’ lives are weird, and it is the odd details that distinguish one hagiography from the next. In this case, it is the boy’s piercing—not an anointed forehead or a white alb—that visibly manifests his baptism and conversion to Christianity. The emphasis on the earring turns what would otherwise be a generic and forgettable story into the memorable account of a Jewish shepherd boy who becomes the “Slave of Christ.”The tale, impeccably translated from the original Syriac by Aaron Butts and Simcha Gross, unfolds in the late fourth ...

  • Epiphanius of Cyprus: A Cultural Biography of Late Antiquity by Andrew
           Jacobs (review)
    • Abstract: Correction: On p. 151In the review of Andrew Jacobs's book, the title currently reads Epiphanius of Salamis: A Cultural Biography of Late Antiquity but actually, "Salamis" here should read "Cyprus". On p. 153, At the start of the second full paragraph author references "Chapter Five” but it should be "Chapter Four." The online version has been updated. Who was Epiphanius, and what is late antiquity' This book supplies new answers to both of these questions. Indeed, it provides a better, more plausible, and corrected answer to the latter by means of careful attention to the former, very elegantly treating the problem of Epiphanius as a problem of the historiography of late antiquity ...

  • Prudentius’ Hymns for Hours and Seasons: Liber Cathemerinon by
           Nicholas Richardson (review)
    • Abstract: This slender volume by British classicist Nicholas Richardson, best known for his work on Greek poetry (Homer, Homeric hymns, Pindar), is a welcome addition to this new series from Routledge edited by J. M. Pucci. Prudentius is well served with the 1926 CSEL edition by Bergman and the 1966 CCL edition by Cunningham of the Latin texts and the two volumes by Thomson from 1949 and 1953 in Loeb of his works in English. Even Liber cathemerinon, a collection of twelve hymns for some moments of the day and some liturgical feasts, has been well catered for use in English-language scholarship with Gerard O’Daly’s Days Linked by Son: Prudentius’ Cathemerinon (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2012), a work that appeared ...

  • The Song of Songs and the Fashioning of Identity in Early Latin
           Christianity by Karl Shuve (review)
    • Abstract: The opening chapters of Genesis depict the creation of a garden paradise, and the biblical prophets (especially Hosea, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel) employ the metaphor of marriage to devastating effect in their critique of Israel’s piety. But it is the Song of Songs that brings the lovers to the garden. No other scriptural source articulates such sensuous yearning or offers so vivid a depiction of desire. In recent decades, a broad consensus has emerged that posits that figurative readings—those which understand the female voice to symbolize the church, the synagogue, or the individual soul, and the male voice to be that of the deity—were layered over an original, “secular” collection of poems describing the experiences ...

  • At the Temple Gates: The Religion of Freelance Experts in the Roman Empire
           by Heidi Wendt (review)
    • Abstract: Paul, Josephus, Marcion, Alexander of Abonoteichus, the author of the Derveni papyrus, astrologers, dream-interpreters, Syrian exorcists, Egyptian magi. Despite their diverse backgrounds, these actors may be grouped together in an etic category devised by Heidi Wendt—that of the freelance religious expert. Such experts were entrepreneurial, in that they competed to offer innovative, specialized religious services; independent, in that their authority did not typically depend on inherited status or formal affiliation with civic cults; and self-interested, in that through their activities they sought personal benefit. Engaging with a wide range of scholarship, Wendt’s dense, original, and tenaciously argued book ... Read More

  • Isaac of Antioch’s Organ and the Media of Musical Subjects
    • Abstract: “yes! radiant lyre speak to me/become a voice”1“It seemed to her that everyone was shouting too loudly and moving too quickly. This sensation was accompanied by nausea, and she had had the impression that something absolutely material, which had been present around her and around everyone and everything forever, but imperceptible, was breaking down the outlines of persons and things and revealing itself.”2Though our technologies suppress this understanding, sound before the modern period was a sign of life. This aspect of sound is now lost to us, but we can gain insights into animate sound through textual descriptions and evocations. One such neglected source is the poem or mēmrā by the prolific fifth-century ... Read More
