   ISSN (Print) 1939-6716 - ISSN (Online) 1942-1273
   Published by Project MUSE Homepage  [294 journals]
  • From the Editor
    • Abstract: Labor omnia vincit, improbus. This special issue represents the distillation of a series of very fine papers delivered at the conference “Property and Power in Late Antiquity” held at NYU’s Institute for the Study of the Ancient World from June 11–14, 2014. Out of the thirty-nine papers delivered there, these emerged as outstanding studies focused narrowly around the theme of “Land-holding and Power.” Few could argue that this is a subject of tremendous importance in all periods of antiquity and that it has gained particular attention in the wake of careful and provocative work published in the last two decades by Bagnall, Banaji, Deckers, Gascou, Sarris, Wickham, and Zuckerman—to name just a few. This ... Read More

  • Capital in the Sixth Century: The Dynamics of Tax and Estate in Roman
           Egypt
    • Abstract: Thomas Piketty’s Le Capital au 21e siècle made two very powerful statements. The first concerns a long term rise of inequality since the last quarter of the twentieth century, which is built on an underlying divergence between the capital rate of return and GDP growth. As long as capital returns exceed economic growth, inequality can only rise. Beyond being morally wrong, this threatens a society’s inner cohesion. The second is that history provides relevant points of comparison. To that effect, the twenty-first-century’s statistics were compared to capital and income distribution in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century France and England. Although late medieval and early modern Europe still provide many ... Read More

  • Vineyard Ownership: A Habitus of Power? The Roots of Land Tenure and the
           Culture of Wine-Making among a New Political Class, from Constantine to
           Julian
    • Abstract: In the early empire, the purchase of vineyards in Campania was an investment favored by senators who were obligated to own lands in Italy.1 The dominant model, promoted by Latin agronomists since the end of the Republic, was thus that of great estates that produced wines for everyday consumption that were in turn marketed in the great centers of consumption; among these Rome naturally commanded pride of place.2 If the shift of the imperial court to Nicomedia and later Constantinople did not turn elites away from viticulture, which continued to be prized by agricultural writers, with the emergence of a nobility at Constantinople one nevertheless notices a significant development in the attention paid to ...

  • Landownership and Power in the Senate of Constantinople
    • Abstract: The creation of a second imperial senate in Constantinople in the mid-fourth century CE was an important step in the transformation of the eastern Roman empire in Late Antiquity. By 359, the senate of Constantinople had become a fully-fledged equal of Rome.1 Many of its members were new senators. In the older literature, which tends to take its cue from Libanius’ criticism of several new senators, it is often argued that many of the new senatorial recruits were of relatively low social background.2 However, the new senate also included several senators from Rome who were domiciled in the East and were transfered to the new senate in the late 350s. Also, the fact that many of the senators in the mid fourth ... Read More

  • Property and Power of the Senatorial Aristocracy of the Eastern Roman
           Empire in the Fifth and Sixth Centuries
    • Abstract: In 527 Justinian succeeded his uncle, the late emperor Justin, as emperor. Having served under Justin as a junior emperor he finally stepped into the spotlight after his uncle’s death.1 As a result of this situation he had to convince others, especially many of the senatorial aristocracy of Constantinople, of his merits as a ruler.2 Thus, he visited the most important senators, and induced them to offer him a tribute as the new emperor. Writing in the west some decades later, Gregory, bishop of Tours, reported one of Justinian’s visits to the most famous lady of the capital, Anicia Juliana, by this time already an older woman. Being a descendant of noble origin as well as granddaughter of the empress Placidia and ... Read More

  • Becoming Roman?: The Not-So-Curious Case of Aspar and the Ardaburii
    • Abstract: Few political figures of the fifth century could boast the longevity of Fl. Ardaburius Aspar.1 In the course of a career spanning fifty years, studded with the highest military and court appointments, and cut short only by his murder, Aspar firmly established his family as a powerful military and political dynasty within the east Roman state. Modern historians have tended to depict Aspar and his family, the Ardaburii, as outsiders in fifth-century Roman politics, a Germanic clique that elbowed its way into the imperial court.2 In some very real senses this is true—Aspar’s family was of Alan and Gothic origins, of non-orthodox Christian faith, and I would suggest even sought to preserve their non-Roman ...

  • Property, Social Status, and Church Building in Visigothic Iberia
    • Abstract: In 693, King Egica (reigned 687–702) gathered the bishops of the Visigothic Kingdom after the failure of a plot to overthrow him, led by Sisebert, the bishop of Toledo, among others.1 The Sixteenth Council of Toledo passed legislation against treason, but Egica also assigned the bishops the task of dealing with other problems afflicting the kingdom, knowing “how the earth is beaten by many evils on a daily basis because of God’s indignation and is consumed by the wickedness of the faithless.”2 His response to institutional upheaval was characteristic of the Visigothic political culture: rebellion was the result of sin and moral failure. As in previous seventh-century councils, an air of spiritual regeneration ... Read More

  • Theodora, Actress, Empress, Saint by David Potter (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). It was inevitable that Theodora should be selected for inclusion in OU P’s “Women in Antiquity” series, and the title says it all. Theodora began as a mime actress, which led to a career first as Justinian’s secret agent, and then his wife and empress. The sainthood came after her death, and never reached the Roman Catholic church. To Cardinal Baronius, she was another Delilah, who betrayed Samson to the Philistines; without her at his side ...

  • Religious Practices and Christianization of the Late Antique City
           (4th–7th cent.) ed. by Aude Busine (review)
    • Abstract: Like Romanization, Christianization is elusive, yet often invoked. Unlike Romanization, however, Christianization remains under-theorized. Does Christianization mean to make someone or something, or both, Christian? What sorts of things can be Christianized and how? The present volume aims, in part, to remedy this situation through, primarily, a series of case studies of specific cities or places, complemented by a few programmatic analyses of more general interest. This volume also seeks to widen the scope of the Christianization of ancient cities—a phenomenon commonly addressed through church construction (and temple destruction), episcopal authority (and declining civic governance), and conversion (with ...

  • A State of Mixture: Christians, Zoroastrians, and Iranian Political
           Culture in Late Antiquity by Richard E. Payne (review)
    • Abstract: Our vision of the Iranian world before the coming of Islam is handicapped by a reliance on two sets of sources: observers within the Roman world and Syriac-speaking Christians within the Iranian world. Payne’s overwhelming contribution here is to give the Zoroastrian sources their due. He writes with a wide knowledge of the Middle Persian religious and legal texts that allows him to evoke a variegated and nuanced image of fifth- and sixth-century Zoroastrianism on its own terms, not merely as an opponent of Christianity. At the heart of his book is a deep understanding of the “good religion” in its Sasanian context, of its conception of the Iranian empire as “a cosmological project to organize beneficent ...

  • Jerome, Vita Malchi. Introduction, Text, Translation, and Commentary by
           Christa Gray (review)
    • Abstract: Silhouetted in darkness, conjoined faces stare from a cave as a lioness mauls a man dressed in high boots and a red robe. This scene on the front cover depicts the final climax of the Vita Malchi (VM), or to use Jerome’s words, de captivo monacho (95). After Jerome provides the circumstances of his encounter with a remarkable old man and woman who were frequent visitors to a village church in Syria, he turns the narrative over to Malchus, a fabulous raconteur who infuses his adventures with lively commentary, rhetorical flourishes, and some realistic details. Curious, Jerome asks the locals about the elderly couple’s relationship. They report both that the pair is holy and “amazing things.” Jerome longs to ... Read More

  • Justinian’s Balkan Wars: Campaigning, Diplomacy and Development in
           Illyricum, Thrace and the Northern World A.D. 527–65 by Alexander
           Sarantis (review)
    • Abstract: The book is the author’s revised dissertation defended at Oxford in 2006. It deals with Justinian’s Balkan policy, which has been largely neglected in English-language scholarship, and brings attention to equally neglected sixth-century “barbarians,” such as the Gepids, the Heruls, and the Kutrigurs. Sarantis’s main goal is to demonstrate that the Balkans were not overlooked by Justinian. Scholars have been misled by Procopius, who did not devote special attention to this region in his Wars, in which Balkan policy appears to be subservient to the Italian theater. Finally, Sarantis argues that Justinian’s diplomatic and military actions were largely successful. It is in hindsight alone that modern historians ... Read More

  • Churches EA and E at Sardis. Archaeological Exploration of Sardis Report
           6. by Hans Buchwald (review)
    • Abstract: This book provides a detailed architectural survey and discussion of two successive churches that were located southwest of the late antique fortified city of Sardis, in an important extramural district now known as Pactolus North. Church EA was a three-aisled basilica, simple in plan but quite large, as indicated by its 41 m length from rounded apse through narthex. Between the fifth and seventh centuries an atrium and other eastern, northern, and western annexes were added to the original structure, access routes and functions of spaces changed, and a residence across the street might have served as an episcopal palace. Early in the seventh century, the damaged complex went out of use; it stood in ruins ... Read More

  • Inside and Out: Interactions between Rome and the peoples on the Arabian
           and Egyptian Frontiers in Late Antiquity by J.H.F. Dijkstra, G. Fisher
           (review)
    • Abstract: The general problem posed by Inside and Out: Interactions between Rome and the Peoples on the Arabian and Egyptian Frontiers in Late Antiquity is how to think and write about frontiers, the geographical spaces where the peoples within and skirting around Roman control encountered each other and interacted. There were also inter-communal frontiers, independent of geographical or administrative demarcations. The volume contains excellent re-evaluations of the more familiar Roman sources by Ariel Lewin, Conor Whately, Hugh Elton, and Geoffrey Greatrex that form the whole project’s touchstone. But what is most exciting is the less familiar material examined by specialists in Arabian, Egyptian, Nubian and ... Read More

  • Jews, Christians and Zoroastrians: Religious Dynamics in a Sasanian
           Context ed. by Geoffrey Herman (review)
    • Abstract: This collection of eight essays developed out of a 2010 workshop at Ruhr Universität in Bochum. It adds to a growing list of important publications about Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians in late antique Persia. The contributors’ main foci are Jewish-Zoroastrian and Christian-Zoroastrian interfaces. Other recent studies, including the conference proceedings—Die Inkulturation des Christentums im Sasanidenreich (2007) and The Talmud in Its Iranian Context (2010), as well as Shai Secunda’s The Iranian Talmud: Reading the Bavli in its Sasanian Context (2014), and Richard Payne’s A State of Mixture: Christians, Zoroastrians, and the Making of the Iranian Empire (2016), adopt a similar approach. All five seek to ... Read More
