  • 2016 NAPS Presidential Address New Romans: Salvian of Marseilles On the
           Governance of God
    • Abstract: And hence the following passage, inspired by the ancient mysteries, by which Virgil wanted to show that he was as much philosopher as poet: “God travels through all regions of the earth, all paths of the seas, and the profound heaven.”1Then . . . the people (gens) of the Hebrews entered the desert. On a route(iter) without routes (itinere), a travel without roads, but behind the advancing God, honored by his divine comradeship (commilitio), made powerful through his celestial command, they followed the mobile column (mobilem columnam) . . .2We are judged by the ever present judgment of God. And thus a most cowardly people (gens ignavissima) . . . has been raised to accomplish our destruction and shame. They go from ... Read More

  • Did Papias of Hierapolis Use the Gospel according to the Hebrews as a
           Source?
    • Abstract: Papias, the bishop of Hierapolis, was a collector of oral lore about Jesus and his disciples.1 It is unfortunate that his five-volume treatise entitled Exposition of the Oracles of the Lord (λογίων κυριακῶν ἐξήγησις) has been lost, for Papias documented some of the earliest legends about the origins and composition of the Gospels. According to a Papian fragment preserved by Eusebius (h.e. 3.39.16–17), the evangelist Matthew “arranged the oracles in a Hebrew dialect, but each interpreted them as he was able” (Ἑβραΐδι διαλέκτῳ τὰ λόγια συνετάξατο, ἡρμήνευσεν δ’ αὐτὰ ὡς ἦν δυνατὸς ἕκαστος).2 Eusebius adds that Papias went on to recount that there was “a woman who was falsely accused of many sins before the Lord” ...

  • Did Origen Write the Letter to Theodore?
    • Abstract: Letter to Theodore, discovered in 1958 by Morton Smith at the Mar Saba monastery, has been subject to much controversy, not only concerning its contents (which include fragments of a non-canonical gospel), but also its authorship. The manuscript of the letter, written on endpapers of a seventeenth-century copy of Isaac Voss’s Epistulae genuinae S. Ignatii Martyris, includes an attribution to Clement of Alexandria, that some reject while accusing Smith of forging the letter. I propose that the letter has been misattributed not only to Clement but also to Smith, and that it should instead be attributed to Clement’s near-contemporary, Origen of Alexandria.The authorship debate was recently taken up in the first York ...

  • Wandering Wombs, Inspired Intellects: Christian Religious Travel in Late
           Antiquity
    • Abstract: Pilgrimage put Christianity “on the map,” so to speak, during the later fourth and fifth centuries, as multitudes of the faithful (and not-so-faithful) undertook journeys of varying lengths across the Mediterranean basin in order to pay their respects at the shrines of local saints, the feet of renowned ascetics, and sites of biblical import. Of particular note within this landscape are the women who traveled to visit these holy sites. Empresses traveled to Jerusalem, incredibly wealthy women like Paula and Melania toured Egypt and Palestine, and legendary women like Mary of Egypt joined the party by begging for redemption at distant shrines. These women visited sites associated with the life of Christ and with ... Read More

  • The Image of Justinianic Orthopraxy in Eastern Monastic Literature
    • Abstract: From 535 to 546, the emperor Justinian issued a series of imperial constitutions which sought to regulate the activities of monks and monasteries. Unprecedented in its scope, this legislative programme marked an attempt by the emperor to bring ascetics firmly under the purview of his government. Taken together, its rulings legislated on virtually every aspect of the ascetic life, prescribing a detailed model of “orthopraxy,” or correct behavior, to which the emperor demanded monks adhere. However, while it is clichéd to evoke Justinian’s status as a reformer of the law, scholars continue to view these orthopraxic rulings with some uncertainty. This is a reflection, in part, of the difficulties faced when attempting ... Read More

  • Crisis & Ambition. Tombs and Burial Customs in Third-Century CE Rome
           by Barbara Borg (review)
    • Abstract: In this book, Barbara Borg reassesses the third century c.e. by looking at funerary customs and representation in burials. The title gives a good indication of the main argument: she sees the third century, traditionally viewed as a period of crisis, rather as an ambitious epoch, hence in a decidedly positive light. This argument falls well in line with a general movement of revisionist studies of periods that were long seen in a negative way, and Borg is not the first one to reconsider the emphasis put on crises in the third century. She treats the epoch as a “distinct period of major challenges and changes” and follows a “holistic, contextualized approach” (2). As she points out in the Introduction (1–7), there ... Read More

  • Christianity in Roman Africa: The Development of its Practices and Beliefs
           by Jr. J. Patout Burns, and Robin M. Jensen (review)
    • Abstract: Taking reputable and established research from related fields and combining it in unexpected ways is a proven method for producing pioneering scholarship. Recent research has also demonstrated that teams of scholars better preserve this combination of conventionality and innovation by balancing the required depth of an academic discipline with the capacity for unconventional combinations (Uzzi et al. 2013). Patout Burns and Robin M. Jensen—in collaboration with Graeme Clarke, Susan T. Stevens, William Tabbernee, and Maureen A. Tilley—followed this proven interdisciplinary approach in this volume to the benefit of the discipline. This collaborative investigation began with conversations at NAPS in 1994. With funding ...

  • Porphyry in Fragments. Reception of an Anti-Christian Text in Late
           Antiquity by Ariane Magny (review)
    • Abstract: In late antique Christian apologetics, Porphyry’s fifteen books Against the Christians can seem either ubiquitous or elusive. Many fourth- and fifth-century authors name Porphyry as the author of anti-Christian polemics under discussion, yet few bothered to reproduce his words. Interest in Porphyry over the past generation has remained robust, yet the pendulum has swung from optimistic reconstruction of Porphyry’s polemics (exemplified by Barnes, Beatrice, Digeser, Schott, and Simmons) to a growing skepticism about distinguishing Porphyry’s voice from those of his Christian adversaries (led by Goulet, Riedweg, Morlet, and Johnson). Ariane Magny’s book, a revision of her Bristol dissertation, pushes this skeptical ... Read More

  • Housing the Chosen: The Architectural Context of Mystery Groups and
           Religious Associations in the Ancient World by Inge Nielsen (review)
    • Abstract: In this ambitious study, Inge Nielsen aims to collect together and analyze architectural settings used by “mystery groups” and other “religious associations” across the Mediterranean, including Jewish and Christian groups. The materials discussed range across the geographical span from Mesopotamia to Italy and cover a long period from the 8th century b.c.e. to the fourth century c.e. The strength of this work lies in its comparative approach and in the gathering of disparate archaeological materials, particularly for the Hellenistic and Roman periods. Yet such a wide-sweeping aim also results in some difficulties in terms of the depth of analysis of particular materials, and there are times when the specifics of ... Read More

  • The Martyrdom and the History of Blessed Simeon bar Ṣabba‘e by
           Kyle Smith (review)
    • Abstract: The field of Syriac studies has grown in leaps and bounds in recent decades with a host of invaluable new studies, editions, translations, and electronic resources. Progress, though, has been uneven with less attention to the East Syrian tradition and Islamic-era texts. Kyle Smith’s contribution to Gorgias Press’s series on Persian martyr literature is, therefore, particularly welcome. It contains two martyr texts describing the trial of the East Syrian archbishop Simeon bar S≤ abba‘e, who was executed by Sasanian authorities around 339 c.e. These are among the best known and most influential of the nearly seventy surviving Syriac accounts of the Sasanian martyrs, more than two-thirds of them set during the reign ... Read More

  • Diodore the Theologian: Πρόνοια in his Commentary on Psalms 1–50
           by Benjamin Wayman (review)
    • Abstract: In Diodore the Theologian, Benjamin Wayman explores the theology of divine providence (πρόνοια) in Diodore of Tarsus’s (d. 394 c.e.) Commentary on Psalms 1–50. Wayman’s overarching goal is to rehabilitate Diodore and the Psalms Commentary in particular for modern theological reflection, by underlining the prominent role of divine providence—and so of sophisticated, Christian reflection on salvation-history—in Diodore’s reading of the Psalms. More specifically, Wayman argues that “the nature of God’s πρόνοια is for Diodore the main doctrinal question posted by the Psalter, to which his exegesis of the Psalms provides the answer . . . A view of πρόνοια that I describe as cooperative in that it preserves divine and ... Read More

  • Sexing the World: Grammatical Gender and Biological Sex in Ancient Rome by
           Anthony Corbeill (review)
    • Abstract: In Sexing the World: Grammatical Gender and Biological Sex in Ancient Rome, classicist Anthony Corbeill delves into an aspect of gender and sexuality in antiquity that has received relatively little discussion, especially in early Christian studies: the role that grammatical gender—masculine, feminine, neuter—played for ancient people in organizing the world according to categories of sexual difference. Against the commonplace that “[t]he grammatical gender of inanimate objects . . . is a convenient linguistic convention, having no correspondence with any sort of imagined sexual characteristics of those objects in the real world” (1), Corbeill deftly demonstrates the degree to which rhetorically astute Latin ...

  • The Afterlife of the Roman City: Architecture and Ceremony in Late
           Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages by Hendrik W. Dey (review)
    • Abstract: This is a bold, ambitious, and innovative work. In just 250 pages of text, Dey offers a wide-ranging survey of the transformation of the ancient city and the persistence of late antique urban forms from the third to ninth centuries. He does so by presenting a vast array of evidence from regions as distant as Arabia and Germany that shows the centrality of colonnaded avenues and processional ceremonies in post-antique urban centers. Porticated streets, Dey argues, were the common stages for expressions of civic authority in late antiquity, and their development, elaboration, and maintenance well into the early middle ages point to the continuity of the urban habit and civilization itself.Dey’s argument is built on ...

  • Augustine, the Trinity, and the Church: A Reading of the Anti-Donatist
           Sermons by Adam Ployd (review)
    • Abstract: In Augustine, the Trinity, and the Church, Adam Ployd situates the “uniquely African controversy” of Donatism into the wider world of the fourth- and fifth-century Trinitarian controversies. He argues that Augustine employed pro-Nicene exegetical strategies in his struggle against the Donatists. Pro-Nicene is a technical term borrowed from “New Canon” scholars such as Lewis Ayres and Michel Barnes and describes a group of fourth- and fifth-century writers who share a hermeneutical tradition governed by the Trinitarian logic of Nicaea. This list includes Ambrose and Hilary in the West, and Athanasius, Cyril of Alexandria, and the Cappadocians in the East. Augustine likewise adopted this exegetical tradition, but ... Read More

  • Damasus of Rome, The Epigraphic Poetry: Introduction, Texts, Translations,
           and Commentary by Dennis Trout (review)
    • Abstract: The popes of late antique Rome are known for many things. They delivered stentorian proclamations of episcopal authority; they built and beautified many of the city’s churches; they fought in disputed episcopal elections and hounded heretics; they even (allegedly) confronted Attila the Hun. Poetry writing, alas, does not typically make the list. Dennis Trout’s welcomed new volume, Damasus of Rome, The Epigraphic Poetry, will help correct these assumptions. As Trout shows, at least one Roman bishop, Damasus (366–384 c.e.), dedicated substantial resources and personal time to the art of poetic composition. Among other contributions, the book presents the first complete set of English translations of all sixty-seven ... Read More

  • The Role of Death in the Ladder of Divine Ascent and the Greek Ascetic
           Tradition by Jonathan L. Zecher (review)
    • Abstract: It is always a delight to welcome new studies on the early corpus of monastic texts, not least because the classic ascetic literature also appeals to and appears to address compelling philosophical questions. There is something unquestionably and unconditionally refreshing about probing the seemingly arid, yet revitalizing springs of the desert fathers and mothers of the first Christian centuries in order to discern responses to perennial questions and remedies to present-day challenges.The unique contribution of the latest academic monograph in the English-speaking world on John Climacus lies not so much in its development of scholarship regarding the place or role of John Climacus within the history of ascetic ...
