  • From the Editor
    • Abstract: New evidence is brought to the table and old arguments overturned in this issue, which covers the entire chronological span of Late Antiquity from the late third to the early seventh-century (and beyond) and explores the full range of evidence types and arguments JLA hopes to cultivate.Michael Kulikowski opens with a masterfully constructed catalog of tiny ingots listing the names and building endeavors of Urban Prefects of Rome. He not only adds two new examples of these tesserae to what is now the definitive catalog of the type but also uses the sparing information they record to offer new insights into the prosopography of the Urban Prefecture in the fifth and sixth centuries. Mischa Meier continues with an ... Read More

  • Urban Prefects in Bronze
    • Abstract: The history of the late antique urban prefecture becomes much more difficult to write in the middle of the fifth century, when the evidence of the Theodosian Code dries up and the comparatively rich epigraphic attestations of the fourth century grow less and less robust. As a result, whereas the fasti of the prefecture are to all intents and purposes complete from the late third century to about the year 400, the fifth-century fasti show many gaps, along with many insecure, uncertain, and potentially duplicate attestations. That remains true for the rest of Late Antiquity and the early middle ages, despite the longevity of the prefecture itself, which continued to retain its local and symbolic importance after the ...

  • A Contest of Interpretation: Roman Policy toward the Huns as Reflected in
           the "Honoria Affair" (448/50)
    • Abstract: Terrible news made the rounds in the middle of the fifth century; there was talk of an outright scandal right beneath the Western Roman emperor's nose, talk of intrigue with devastating political consequences: Justa Grata Honoria, the older sister of Emperor Valentinian III (425–455) and the bearer of the title Augusta,1 had abandoned her celibate life and secretly had an affair with her property manager (procurator) Eugenius.2 She may have even been expecting a child by him.3 When the affair was uncovered, the reaction at court in Ravenna was swift: Eugenius was executed; Honoria was stripped of her imperial honors (τῶν βασιλείων—her title Augusta in particular is probably meant) and betrothed to Herculanus, a ...

  • The Date, Dedication, and Design of Sts. Sergius and Bacchus in
           Constantinople
    • Abstract: The church of Sts. Sergius and Bacchus in Constantinople was constructed in the sixth century by the emperor Justinian and his wife, Theodora, and was located in the eastern part of the city, close to the shores of the Sea of Marmara, within a residence called the "Palace of Hormisdas." The building survives today as a consequence of its conversion into a mosque at the beginning of the sixteenth century.1The main body of the building (figs. 1–2) measures less than 30 m square, with a projecting three-sided apse to the east and a narthex to the west.2 In the nave stand eight piers, which are located at the corners of a slightly irregular octagon. Each pier is wedge-shaped in plan and preserves the angle of the ... Read More

  • The Urban Center of Valencia in Late Roman and Visigothic Timesx
    • Abstract: The urban development of the ancient city of Valentia (Valencia) in the Province of Tarraconensis has attracted great scholarly interest in the last twenty-five years. The results of numerous campaigns carried out by the municipal authorities (that is, the Servicio de Investigación Arqueológica Municipal, orFig 1Hypothetical plan of Valentia in Roman times (after Ribera i Lacomba 2008, fig. 8).SIAM) from the late 1980s onwards allow for better understanding of the city's history from its foundation in 138/7 bce1 to early Islamic times.2 Besides the important localization of the monumental circus,3 the excavation next to the modern basilica of Nuestra Señora de los Desamparados at the Plaza de l'Almoina, which ...

  • The Conversion of Temples in Rome
    • Abstract: In the field of Late Antiquity, there is an ongoing debate as to whether the end of antiquity was brought about by a clash of religions or by peaceful transformation. The archaeology of temple conversions is especially pertinent to this discussion, because it can yield valuable insights into the motivations of those who converted temples into churches. Thus, it can provide evidence for the existence of a general effort to demolish the pagan past, or, alternatively, for a gradual and essentially nondestructive metamorphosis into a new, Christian world.Ever since Edward Gibbon's vivid account of the destruction of the Serapeum in Alexandria at the hands of Christians, scholars have tended to view the conversions of ...

    • Abstract: In an apologetic work dated between the end of the third and the beginning of the fifth centuries1 and generally known as Apocriticus,2 Macarius Magnes, a Christian author of whom almost nothing is known,3 reports and refutes the views of an anonymous pagan philosopher, whom he designates as "the Hellene."4 In 1916, von Harnack identified the anonymous Hellene as Porphyry of Tyre and used Macarius's text to reconstruct Porphyry's lost treatise Against the Christians. Since then, the relation between Porphyry's anti-Christian work and Macarius Magnes's Apocriticus has been subject to an ongoing scholarly debate. Although brought into question by Timothy Barnes5 and others,6 von Harnack's reconstruction remains ... Read More

  • Prosecuting Epicurus in the Emperor Julian's Court: A Reading of Himerius
           Oration 3
    • Abstract: The Bithynian sophist Himerius (roughly 320–383 ce) is our most distinguished champion of Hellenism in fourth-century Athens.1 His sixty surviving whole or fragmentary orations offer valuable glimpses of the intellectual culture of the evolving Roman world of Late Antiquity and into the mind of a fervent supporter of the emperor Julian's (361–363 ce) abortive pagan renaissance. Himerius's panegyrics, combined with addresses to his own students, reveal how closely he linked education and culture to traditional religion. His declamations, "imaginary orations" of which six survive in substantial fragments, were also the products of an environment in which rival rhetoricians vied, sometimes violently, to be esteemed ...

  • Lucian in Byzantium: The Intersection of the Comic Tradition and Christian
           Orthodoxy in the Anonymous Patriot
    • Abstract: Famous for his biting satire and fantastical scenarios, Lucian was both denounced and emulated by later Greek writers. For some, he was incompatible with a Christian worldview.1 The Suda famously preserves a tale that he was ripped apart by dogs and sentenced to burn in hell as a direct result of his attacks on Christianity in the Life of Peregrinus.2 Other writers, however, turned to him as a model, imitating his linguistic style, playful spirit, and literary motifs.3 The Patriot, a Byzantine dialogue of uncertain date and authorship, falls into the latter category. Lucian's literary world functions in this dialogue as a mediator between the pull of the classical past and the contemporary realities of writing ... Read More

  • Wandering Poets and Other Essays on Late Greek Poetry and Philosophy by
           Alan Cameron (review)
    • Abstract: Presses are encouraged to submit books dealing with Late Antiquity for consideration for review to any of JLA's three Book Review Editors: Michael Kulikowski (mek31@psu.edu); Hagith Sivan (helenasivan@yahoo.com); and Dennis Trout (troutd@missouri.edu).Wandering Poets is in some ways a companion to Alan Cameron's monumental opus, The Last Pagans of Rome (2011). The latter has inspired some long and hostile reviews and even an entire collection of essays devoted to critical engagement. This is a testament to the importance of his Last Pagans. Wandering Poets can be seen as a companion because it assembles a few of Cameron's classic articles on the Greek side (mostly) that deal with issues of prominence addressed on ... Read More

  • Porphyrios: Gegen die Christen (Contra Christianos). Fragmente,
           Testimonien und dubia mit Einleitung, Übersetzung und Anmerkungen by
           Matthias Becker (review)
    • Abstract: A mountain of scholarship on Porphyry's famous third-century polemic against Christianity has, from the nineteenth century to the present, continued to grow: the last seven years alone have seen at least four books dedicated to Porphyry's religious thought, two international colloquia dedicated entirely to his contra Christianos, and dozens of articles (whether dedicated to the anti-Christian treatise or to his religious thought more generally). Because the contra Christianos survives in fragments of varying degrees of reliability, the constructions of different scholars predictably vary a great deal. A particularly significant culprit in fanning the diversity of interpretations has been the problematic nature of ... Read More

  • Constantine and the Cities: Imperial Authority and Civic Politics by Noel
           Lenski (review)
    • Abstract: Lenski is familiar to students of the reign of Constantine I (306–337) as the author of a number of insightful papers on this period and the editor of the Cambridge Companion to the Age of Constantine (2006). Hence the present volume represents the mature work of someone who has immersed himself in the vast array of complicated primary materials—archaeological, epigraphic, and numismatic as well as literary—and mastered the ever growing volume of secondary material before offering his own contribution to the field. The result is a volume that convincingly analyses the interactions between Constantine and the cities of the empire, focussing upon the emperor's varied efforts to convert these to Christianity and their ...

  • Treasure in Heaven: The Holy Poor in Early Christianity by Peter Brown
           (review)
    • Abstract: Few scholars have traced the nuances between power dynamics of wealth and ideas of the sacred in late antique Christianity with the creativity, persuasive elegance, and tenacity of Peter Brown. Brown's newest book, Treasure in Heaven: The Holy Poor in Early Christianity, invites readers on a journey that continues to explore how bodies shape social norms in religious history.In a shift away from the focus of his last two books (Through the Eye of a Needle and The Ransom of the Soul) on the Latin-speaking West, Treasure in Heaven looks east, to Christian monastic trends in Egypt and Syria between the second and fifth centuries. It asks how "holy men" (indeed men are the primary examples here) became "holy poor" in ... Read More

  • Augustine's Vergilian Retreat: Reading the Auctores at Cassiciacum by
           Joseph Pucci (review)
    • Abstract: After his conversion in summer 386, Augustine left Milan for Cassiciacum. There, in a friend's country house, he stayed with his closest relatives and confidants until he returned to the city for his baptism during the Easter vigil of 387. During this period of seclusion, Augustine produced his first extant writings Contra Academicos, De beata vita, De ordine, and the Soliloquia, in which the author, in dialogic form, reflects on the fundamental questions of happiness and truth in a way that starts from pagan philosophy and leads to God. In his book, Pucci takes both these dialogues from Cassiciacum and the De doctrina Christiana—composed a decade later and sketching the hermeneutics of a Christian (reading) ... Read More

  • Literary Territories: Cartographical Thinking in Late Antiquity by Scott
           Fitzgerald Johnson (review)
    • Abstract: In Literary Territories, Scott Johnson explores the intertwined metaphors of map and library as they shaped the production of literature in late antiquity. Much of the book focuses on the fourth through the sixth century, a time when increased travel expanded notions of the oikoumenē, or the "inhabited world." Efforts to accumulate and organize all knowledge, Johnson argues, fueled an "aesthetic of encyclopedism" or "archivalism" in many late antique genres.Cartographical thinking—the impulse to compile, archive, and epitomize—is a by-product of this interest, appearing in travel descriptions, letters, pilgrims' guides, and miracle collections, as well as in non-narrative works such as Roman lists of overland ...

  • The Monastic Origins of the Nag Hammadi Codices: Studien und Texte zu
           Antike und Christentum 97 by Hugo Lundhaug and Lance Jenott (review)
    • Abstract: Throughout the past half-century, the Nag Hammadi codices have fascinated historians of early Christianity. A particular challenge, however, for analyzing their importance is the lack of information on the context of the texts themselves: who wrote, read, and copied them' This important book revisits these questions to argue that monks, most likely in the Pachomian federation, produced and read these books. Admittedly (1), this is not a new suggestion and thus the strengths of the book lie in its careful and detailed arguments, which both explore the variety of evidence and engage in meticulous debate with the extensive scholarship on the subject.Indeed, the level of specificity of this work makes it particularly ...
