  • From the Editor
    • Abstract: With this issue, we bid farewell to one of the most storied figures of late antique studies, Alan Cameron, who died July 31, 2017 at the age of 79 in New York. None of us who study the field can claim to be without debt to him. I remember well my first encounter with Cameron in his Manhattan home where he had invited me to discuss Synesius of Cyrene as I considered the possibility of embarking on a dissertation related to the De regno and the state of Gothic relations in the crucial years around 400 ce. Together with Jackie Long, Alan had just completed Barbarians and Politics at the Court of Arcadius (California 1993) and was kind enough to share the proofs with me as it was going into press. I was, of course ... Read More

  • Presentation Diptychs or Fancy Stationery'
    • Abstract: In Late Antiquity members of the elite of Rome and Constantinople presented friends and connections with elaborately carved ivory diptychs to commemorate the holding of certain offices and other occasions.1 The best documented illustration is consular diptychs. We have almost forty ranging in date from ce 406 to 541, including one or both panels of six diptychs of Anastasius (consul in 517), and no fewer than seven of Areobindus (consul in 506). The three surviving sets of more or less identical diptychs issued by Justinian in 521 all claim to be presents for senators (patribus … meis offero consul ego). Evidently, they were produced in multiple copies for distribution.There are two categories of evidence for this ... Read More

  • Helios and the Emperor in the Late Antique Peloponnese
    • Abstract: The head is carved of local beige marble, with a height of 0.52 meters and a width of 0.37 meters. It has a strong frontal rendering and cursorily curved features. It may be reworked from a previous piece (Figs. 1–5). It now appears severely damaged due to later re-use; the back side is hollowed out. It seems that the head was later placed upside-down and the newly carved concavity used as a fountain urn. It features large almond-shaped eyes, wide-open. Boldly emphasized eyelids frame the eyeballs. The damaged nose is wedge-shaped and crudely modelled. The mouth simply appears as a horizontal sharp cut across thickly modeled lips. The ears are rendered by curved incisions in very low relief. The hair projecting in ... Read More

  • Gothia Submerged: The Impacts of Severe Flooding on Valens's First Gothic
           War
    • Abstract: In the history of the Romano–Gothic clashes of the fourth and fifth centuries ce, Valens's First Gothic War is often overshadowed by the events that followed it. This is the case because the conflict did not have the profound implications of the Second Gothic War or the Gothic sack of Rome in 410, which fundamentally altered the relationship between the Roman Empire and the Goths. It is also because there is an established consensus about the course of the First Gothic War and its eventual outcome. However, upon closer examination, it becomes apparent that the existing explanation for the curious manner in which this war abruptly came to an end in the summer of 369 leaves a great deal unexplained.Most modern ...

  • Barbarian Migrations and Socio–Economic Challenges to the Roman
           Landholding Elite in the Fourth Century CE
    • Abstract: When in 408 the Roman army (backed by a lot of Roman money) successfully drove a Hunnic force out of Thrace, a larger group of Sciri who were allied with the Huns fell into the hands of the empire. A couple of months later, Theodosius II issued the following instructions concerning their treatment:… Therefore, we grant to all persons the opportunity to supply their private possessions with men of the aforementioned group. And all persons shall know that they shall hold those whom they have received by no other title than that of the colonate (ius colonatus), and that no one shall be permitted either fraudulently to take anyone of this group of coloni away from the person to whom he had once been assigned by ...

  • Jerusalem Sacred Stones from Creation to Eschaton
    • Abstract: Scholars of early Islamic history and texts suggest that early Muslim interest in Jerusalem and especially its acclaimed Rock of Foundation, the Sakhra, was directly influenced by their understanding of Jerusalem's religious significance to both Jews and Christians.1 These early Muslim leaders and authors discovered that the Rock was endowed with a mythologically central role in the creation of the world and an anticipated role in this same world's demise at the Eschaton or Judgment Day.2 If one understands formative Islam to have been in some manner an eschatological religion in its own right, the attractiveness of Jerusalem as redemptive epicenter becomes apparent.3 Furthermore, if early Islam presented itself as ...

  • All Call Me Blessed: The Magnificat in Paulina's Poem to Praetextatus
    • Abstract: I argue here that Fabia Aconia Paulina's poetic eulogy of her husband, the well-known pagan senator Vettius Agorius Praetextatus (around 320–384), offers a veiled apology for her religious worldview at a time of heightened contestation between pagans and Christians over the fate of the traditional cults.1 More specifically, I aim to show that the poem engages with contemporary Christian discourses of ascetic virginity through a self-conscious allusion to the Magnificat, the Latin text of the canticle of Mary, whose status as an exemplar of ascetic virginity was well established by the late fourth century. Positioning herself as a rival to the Virgin Mary, Paulina promotes a traditional view of female virtue ... Read More

  • The Public Intellectual according to Choricius of Gaza, or How to
           Circumvent the Totalizing Christian Discourse
    • Abstract: When the teacher of rhetoric and head of school Choricius of Gaza at some point around 530 ce delivered the funeral oration for his predecessor Procopius, he drew on a long-standing and venerable tradition of rhetorical epitaphs, and thus he knew which qualities of the deceased to praise and how to present them according to the handbooks.1 Funeral orations were always intended to fulfill two basic functions: to console the mourning relatives and to hold up the person who had passed away as an exemplar for the living to emulate.2 That is precisely what Choricius in the proem to his oration proposes to do, even while suggesting that with his speech he aims to put an image of Procopius before the eyes of the audience ...

  • The Danger of the Soft Life: Manly and Unmanly Romans in Procopius's
           Gothic War
    • Abstract: In a modern world obsessed with sex and celebrity scandals, it should not surprise that the scurrilous Secret History, by the mid-sixth century writer Procopius, represents a favorite text on the bookshelves of university students. Teeming with accounts of the carnal escapades and the political misdeeds of puissant women, often at the expense of enfeebled men, the work offers students an apt corrective to stereotypes of the Byzantines as androcentric "prudes" with minimal interest in sexual matters.1 Procopius's fondness for gendered discourse has also attracted the attention of scholars.2 The Secret History's notorious views on gender, especially in its portraits of the seminal power-couples of sixth-century ...

  • Review Essay: Toward a Hermeneutics of Laughter
    • Abstract: For some time I have been preoccupied with finding a language for talking about laughter. In 2013 I published a book, The Laughter of Sarah, in which I tried to do just that.1 Starting from the laughter with which the matriarch Sarah in the book of Genesis greets the birth of her son Isaac (whose name itself means "he will laugh"), I explored its interpretations in early Christian exegesis as well as in midrash and in early Quranic exegesis. I then looked at the principal laughter theorists of the twentieth century—Bergson, Freud, Bakhtin, and Plessner2—and gradually built an argument that the western tradition had been unable to "hear" the laughter of Sarah, which I construed as a laugh of sheer delight. The ... Read More

  • The Scriptural Universe of Ancient Christianity by Guy G. Strousma
           (review)
    • Abstract: The voice of Guy Stroumsa is a distinctive one in late antique studies. An historian of religions with a taste for comparatism, whose long and very distinguished career at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem has taken in Harvard, Paris, and Oxford too, he has fashioned a scholarly idiom in which the parts of philosophy, philology, and social anthropology are nearly inextricable, and written a string of books—several, like this one, compiled from separately published essays—that set the "Christianity" of (late) antiquity at strange and challenging angles to modern observers. Expanding the chapter on "L'essor des religions du Livre" in his 2004 lectures at the Collège de France, La Fin du sacrifice: Les mutations ... Read More

  • At the Intersection of Texts and Material Finds: Stepped Pools, Stone
           Vessels, and Ritual Purity among the Jews of Roman Galilee by Stuart S.
           Miller (review)
    • Abstract: Miller's book discusses the literary and archeological aspects of purity practices, mainly bodily immersion and ritual baths (miqva'ot). It focuses on the Galilee in Late Antiquity, particularly on the city of Sepphoris.Chapters One ("Misleading Use of Terminology: The "miqveh", "bet tevilah" and other "Ritual Baths"") and Two ("The Evolving, Non-Monolithic "Ritual Bath"") deal with the terminology of miqveh and the problem of identifying a miqveh in the material record. It is argued that the rabbinic miqveh is not always a manmade stepped pool since it is also possible to bathe in natural waters. Chapter Three ("Pre-Rabbinic, Non-Rabbinic, and Rabbinic Ritual Immersion Practices in the Making") explores the ... Read More

  • Imperial Invectives against Constantius II: Athanasius of Alexandria,
           Hilary of Poitiers and Lucifer of Cagliari by Richard Flower (review)
    • Abstract: The fourth century can justifiably be characterized as the age of imperial rhetoric. Especially when compared with the preceding and subsequent centuries, a substantial number of imperial orations has been passed down both in Latin and Greek: eleven Panegyrici Latini, three laudatory speeches by Symmachus, a Laus Constantini by Eusebius, speeches by Julian in praise of Constantius and his wife Eusebia, and a considerable number of orations on emperors by Themistius. These panegyrics represent an especially characteristic and significant product of the culture of Late Antiquity and are important sources for our understanding of the office of emperorship. Central to the laudatory orations are the emperor's virtues ... Read More

  • Women and Modesty in Late Antiquity by Kate Wilkinson (review)
    • Abstract: Wilkinson's new monograph holds up the women of the Anicii family as a case study through which to query the nature of modesty in the late antique Roman world. Throughout her study, Wilkinson stresses the performative nature of modesty (rather than modesty conceived as an internal state). Specifically, in chapters 2–4 she focuses readers' attention on the myriad ways in which late ancient women's modesty was constructed and interpreted in their dress, their voice, their comportment, and their relation to and movement through certain spaces. This focus on performativity enables Wilkinson to highlight the self-conscious and strategic calculations women made on a day-to-day basis, stressing their agency in defining ... Read More

  • The Last of the Romans. Bonifatius—Warlord and Comes Africae by Jeroen
           W.P. Wijnendaele (review)
    • Abstract: The end of the Western Roman Empire in the fifth century ce was one of the marquee events of antiquity, and in this regard several individuals have been given the sobriquet "the last of the Romans." In antiquity, Procopius (Bell. Vand.1.3.14–15) suggested two candidates as Ῥωμαίων ὕστατος: the western generalissimo Fl. Aëtius, and the rather less well known Count Boniface, whose primary distinction is to be blamed for allowing the Vandals to cross from Africa to Spain in 429. Wijnendaele's objective is to correct the impression that "Bonifatius should not be included in the same list of people as Stilicho, Constantius (III), Aëtius, and Ricimer," (2) and to give Boniface a place at the table, so to speak, in ...

  • The Religious Worlds of the Laity in Late Antique Gaul by Lisa Kaaren
           Bailey (review)
    • Abstract: There is a vibrant universe tucked inside this slender book, which is dedicated to the experiences and perspectives of lay Christians in Gaul from roughly 400 to 700. The challenges of such a project are obvious: it is hard to know what anyone actually believes, all the more so when most of your evidence was crafted by ecclesiastical experts. But Bailey demonstrates that this familiar critique is in some ways overly cautious. There may be a lot we cannot know about the life of the laity in Gaul, but there is also a lot we can know, and her study examines the official and unofficial engagements (chap. 1), sacred spaces (chap. 2), urban topographies (chap. 3), rituals (chap. 4), behaviors (chap. 5), and beliefs ...
