  • À propos de trois livres récents sur des monuments de
           Thessalonique
    • Abstract: This review will take in consideration and compare three books recently published which all address the Early Christian monuments of Thessaloniki, principally their mosaics. It is well known that all these monuments have no sure or well established dating. Comparing these books, which are quite different in their approaches, methods and, even, conclusions, with each other and with our own experience of these monuments, we will try to put in evidence their positive (and the less positive) contributions to this topic.

  • Laien, Kleriker, Märtyrer und die unterirdischen Friedhöfe Roms
           im 3. Jahrhundert
    • Abstract: The article asks for the role of laymen and clerics in the creation and genesis of catacombs in the 3rd century. Clearly, the interest in collective burial is a need of the faithful. It is an option, but not at all obligatory. The nuclei of 3rd-century catacombs show the presence of different groups of persons, which frequently do not allow drawing conclusions on their religious affiliation. The absence of Christian elements does not mean that the commissioners of the burial rooms were pagan; Christians may not have felt the need to express their faith. The intentions the commissioners determine the choice of epigraphic formulary and figural decoration. During the 3rd century, it seems that mostly laymen organizing them, women played a particular role in organizing relics and corpses of martyrs. Laymen also kept the memory of martyrs alive. The choice of a certain catacomb for the own interment was determined by personal relations.

  • How God made the world in seven days: The commentaries on genesis of John
           Chrysostom (Homilies 1-12) and of Eusebius of Emesa (1-10), two distinct
           representatives of the school of Antioch
    • Abstract: Cet article compare Jean Chrysostome et Eusèbe d’Émèse dans leur rôle de commentateurs de la Genèse. Chrysostome était avant tout prêcheur et moraliste : l’article examine en quoi ses sermons sur la Genèse reflètent ses fonctions de pasteur. De son côté, Eusèbe était fondamentalement un commentateur qui s’efforçait d’expliquer les passages difficiles à comprendre. L’un et l’autre suivaient la tradition de l’exégèse biblique de l’École d’Antioche, dont le premier représentant connu est Théophile, prêtre d’Antioche en 169-177 et auteur d’un Hexaemeron. L’article conclut en suggérant que l’École d’Antioche a combiné les traditions exégétiques du monde chrétien de langue grecque avec celles du christianisme syriaque de Mésopotamie.

  • Classicisme, barbarie et guerre romaine : l’image du cavalier dans
           l’Empire romain tardif
    • Abstract: This paper will discuss the image of the cavalryman in the sources of the late Roman Empire. It aims to refute Anthony Kaldellis’ thesis on the preface of the History of the wars of Justinian. Unlike the American scholar, I argue here that much of the authors of the time, including Procopius, were favourable to the development of cavalry in the Roman army. This demonstraties a significant change in Roman atitudes towards warfare. Indeed, while the legionary infantryman was seen as a major symbol of the Roman military ethos during the early Empire, the mounted warrior gains visibility in the sources from the late third century onwards. This change is due to the raising of State guerrilla warfare to the rank of main defensive strategy by the late Roman Empire and has also connections with the emulation of “barbarian” military tactics. It goes along with a renewal of the official dicourse on mounted archery, once depreciated by classical authors. Julian, Procopius and Agathias do not hesitate to make of the hippotoxotês the Homeric warrior par excellence, exceeding in value all other types of fighters. Official art and religion are not to be outdone; so much so that the figure of cavalryman, caparisoned in the oriental way and equipped with the nomadic bow finally outshines that of the heavy infanmtryman in many documentary fields. The analysis thus reveals the importance of cultural factors in the understanding of ancient military history. If the inertia of the classical ideology may hinder the adoption of new practices, the integration of foreign militry traditions must be justified by the dominnat culture to be considered legitimate. This evolution of the discourse on war is not without consequences for the entire imperial military policy.

  • Ecclesiastical dominance and urban setting. Colonnaded streets as
           back-drop for Christian display
    • Abstract: Cet article étudie la relation qui existe entre d’un côté les complexes épiscopaux et les églises de pèlerinage, de l’autre les rues à colonnade et les avenues. Les complexes de ce type ont d’abord joué un rôle plutôt passif dans l’urbanisme. Ils étaient insérés, au même titre que les autres monuments publics plus classiques, derrière les colonnades encadrant les axes de circulation principaux, notamment dans le but d’assurer leur visibilité à un emplacement central. Dans un second temps, les cathédrales et églises de pèlerinage assumèrent un rôle résolument plus actif dans la définition des espaces urbains, en suscitant cette fois la construction de nouvelles rues à colonnade. Celles-ci, en tant que type architectural, sont ainsi devenues partie intégrante de complexes épiscopaux plus larges. On note en outre le maintien, dans cet environnement « chrétien », du rôle de monuments traditionnellement associés à ces rues, tels que les tétrapyles et autres arches. Les raisons de cette assimilation sont doubles : ces complexes attiraient un public nombreux et nécessitaient un accès facile, mais plus encore, les chefs de l’Église ont rapidement saisi l’intérêt hautement représentatif de ces structures pour l’exaltation des activités ecclésiastiques, non seulement à l’intérieur même des complexes, mais également au-delà de leur limites pour s’étendre à la rue à colonnade qui leur était associée.

  • La titulature des magistri militum au ive siècle
    • Abstract: The partition magister equitum / magister peditum had an administrative rather than tactical or strategical meaning. Moreover, the titles magister equitum et peditum and magister utriusque militiae did not appear, nor had the same use in both partes. In the eastern half of the Empire, under the reign of Valens, mag. equ. et ped., then mag. utr. mil. were created, first for the regional generals, then for the praesentales. The western part kept the traditional partition mag. equ. / mag. ped. until 395, then the title mag. utr. mil. was introduced in the West by Stilicon, but had a different meaning than in the East: it was a distinction that only one general at a time could obtain (except for retired generals).

  • Praesides, comites, duces. La Tripolitania e l’amministrazione
           dell’Africa tardoromana
    • Abstract: This paper re-examines the administrative evolution of the province of Tripolitania from its creation under the tetrarchy to the latest evidence relating to Roman rule. The case of Tripolitania is emblematic, despite its inevitable specificity; its study can be useful in order to explore, more generally, questions such as the way central government dealt with border districts in the later Roman empire, the problems of attribution of civil and military powers, the competition between the holders of such powers, and the possible interferences between the provincial authorities and the authorities operating at an interprovincial level. The author tries to make order in the scattered evidence related to Tripolitania and other north African provinces, which often has not been sufficiently explored or properly inter preted; new data obtained from a re-reading or re-assembling of some inscriptions from Sabratha and Leptis add further elements to the discussion. The evolution of Tripolitania is framed within the political and administrative history of North Africa: in fact, this specific case cannot be properly understood without examining in parallel the interrelated evolutions of the other African provinces and how they were affected by the reorganization by Diocletian, the establishment of the comitiva Africae, the introduction of frontier duces... This paper also explores the network of relations between the various authorities in the province - the governor, the local elites, the individual cities and the provincial assembly - and the powers external to the province, from the vicars to the imperial court.

  • Provincia Lucania: topografia e agrimensura in un pesaggio che cambia,
           dalla Tarda Antichità all'Alto Medioevo (seconda parte)
    • Abstract: Provincia Lucania is the name used by sources in Late Antiquity to define the part of ancient regio III which the Diocletianic reforms included as one of the most productive regions of suburbicarian Italy. The heterogeneity of the studies carried out in the past and the treatment of archaeological and philological data together with statistical examples, even extended to non investigated parts, underestimate the exact content of textual, epigraphic and mapping sources about this land as well as the connections which existed between distant but culturally very close localities. The topographic analysis of the provincia also take place together with the surveyors’ texts, in such a way that the evolution of the landscape from the 5th to the 11th centuries emerges by comparing and relating the latter to the reality. The different versions of Tabula Peutingeriana, the itineraria and the so-called or are here decoded and open up new perspectives to analyze a still largely unknown territory.

  • Violences polysémiques et construction mémorielle : la Passion
           de Salsa de Tipasa
    • Abstract: Salsa of Tipasa holds an original place among the female figures of martyrdom. The narrative of her Passion, structured by stereotypes, is centered on three violent events (the destruction of the idol by the young girl, then comparison to Judith; the lynching of the martyr; the effective intercession of the holy Salsa who defeats the tyrannical violence of Firmus). The aim of this narrative description is to legitimize her martyrdom and her holiness, thus enabling her to be part of a process of construction of memory.

  • Eusèbe de Césarée face aux images : vers une
           interprétation plus positive – et moins incertaine – de
           ses attitudes ?
    • Abstract: We here confront the contradictory opinions more or less recently expressed about Eusebius’attitudes toward images, as attested in several of his texts. Even if it is necessary to be cautious in such matters - given the impossibility of producing any true proof -, it appears, firstly, that the Letter to Constantia may probably be held as an authentic Eusebian testimony, and that some figurative works of art elsewhere mentioned by the Caesarean bishop (mainly at Constantinople and Paneas) certainly were of genuine Christian character; and, secondly, that if Eusebius clearly manifests an opposition to the concept of the portrayal of the Divine Being, his position about allegorical or narrative representations might have been more tolerant - and even favourable.

  • Historia Augusta contra christianos. Recherches sur l’ambiance
           antichrétienne dans l’Histoire Auguste
    • Abstract: The religious “Tendenz” of the Historia Augusta has long been a contentious issue among specialists; only by paying close attention to the richly-layered inter-textuality of the work can it be established how acquainted the author was with the niceties of Christian culture, biblical and patristic, and their Jewish core. Samples culled from the biographies of Avidius Cassius, Heliogabalus, Geta, and the two Maximini showcase a cogent literary strategy of juggling parodic allusions to Christianity; the Vita Maximini duo, particularly, would appear to revolve around the inversion of specific chunks of the Gospel of Luke. The epistles of Saint Paul too come in for some tough love. The whole polemical aspect of the Historia Augusta through the cover up of jest and ribaldry must therefore be maintained against the skeptical bowdlerization of the collection some of the most recent scholarship amounts to. It also provides clues that point in the direction of the great Pagan statesman Nichomachus Flavianus senior as our elusive writer.

  • … At tum Instantius, Salvianus et Priscillianus Romam profecti: El
           viaje de los priscilianistas hacia la Ciudad Eterna
    • Abstract: Following the enactment of Gratian’s rescript, Priscillianists were expelled from the episcopal sees they had so eagerly achieved. Given the seriousness of their situation, they decided to march to Rome in the hope that, by presenting themselves in person before the Pope Damaso, they could reverse the position they were in. Although Sulpicius Severus’s account provides little information about the route followed by the Priscillianists, we believe that it is possible to offer a plausible reconstruction of the path that led Priscillian and his companions to the Eternal City. In this task, we will take account of every source traditionally employed for the study of Priscillianism, as well as information provided by the main itineraria known in Roman times.

  • Überlegungen zur Rekonstruktion der konstantinischen Geburtskirche in
           Bethlehem
    • Abstract: Since the excavations carried out in the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem by the British Department of Antiquities in Palestine in 1927 and during the 1930s, it has become clear that the current day building is not the church commissioned by the Emperor’s mother, Helena, which the so-called Pilgrim of Bordeaux saw as early as 333 AD, but rather the more recent structure erected in the late 5th century or even the 6th century. Unfortunately, the archaeological research in the eastern part of the church could only be carried out in its northern half; the church has been an UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2012. The documentation in the reports of the walls and remains of the floor discovered during the excavation is often imprecise, so that many questions with regard to the reconstruction of the Constantine basilica remain unanswered. An atrium lays to the west of the five-aisled basilica. Compared to today’s building, the Constantinian basilica was around one bay shorter. A reconstruction of the part of the building over the Grotto of the Nativity is difficult. The excavated walls and the remains of the mosaic floor lead one to believe that a towering octagonal building was located here, at the centre of which an octagonal raised platform with steps and a round opening was situated, allowing a view of the Grotto of the Nativity below. This reconstruction is widely accepted today and has found its way into the reference books of early Christian architecture. So the Constantine Church of the Nativity is considered to be the earliest example of the combination of basilica and central-plan buildings in early Christian churches. B. Bagatti had doubts about this reconstruction back in 1952 and suggested a polygonal apse as an alternative to the eastern terminal. When a model of the Church of the Nativity was produced for the Constantine exhibition held in Trier in 2007, the excavation documentation was examined and numerous irregularities were discovered, so as to question the existence of an octagonal tower-like structure. A sanctuary with a three-sided apse solves this problem however. Both of the narrow walls, which run angled along to the nave, are actually choir screens, which strikingly framed the holy domain with the raised platform. The connection of the sanctuary, with its side rooms onto the basilica section of the Church of the Nativity, which had galleries over its side aisles, can be realised without any problems, too. The towering octagon, which from the exterior seemed to stand alone, was not actually a feature of the Constantine Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem.

  • À Antioche sur l’Oronte, l’église de Constantin
           entre histoire et mémoire
    • Abstract: This article is devoted to the church built by Constantine in Antioch. It is mentioned twice by Eusebius and appears in numerous texts, but it has not yet been recognized in the field. The names given to the church in the texts are examined: the original name seems to have been “The Golden Church”. However, already under Julian’s reign the church was commonly called “The Great Church” or even simply “The Church”. This name implies that the building was the main church of the Christian community. Its topographical situation is unknown. Due to the ambiguities of the architectural vocabulary used by Eusebius, any speculation about the architectural appearance of the church must be taken with great caution. Constantine’s decision to build this church must be interpreted as an act of recognition of the importance of Antioch as “Metropolis of the East”. Although the dedication of the church took place in 341, in the presence of Constantius, the church maintained the memory of Constantine until the beginning of the 6th century. In Malalas’ Chronicle, the narrative of its construction is associated with the appointment of the first Comes Orientis, the foundation of his praetorium and, anachronistically, the destruction of a temple and its replacement by Rufinus’ basilica, which played an important role in Antiochean urban space until at least the reign of Justinian.

  • La cathédrale de Paulin de Tyr décrite par Eusèbe de
           Césarée : mythe ou réalité ?
    • Abstract: The qualities of construction attested in the archeological remains of the impressive and well decorated church now named “Basilica of Quarter sand” in Tyre (formerly known under the name “Basilica of the Quarter Hajj Qaafarani”), have raised debates for the identification of this church with the cathedral mentioned by Eusebius of Caesarea in the famous panegyric included in his Ecclesiastical History (Book 10, Chap. 4), and delivered in 313-314 under the aegis of bishop Paulinus of Tyre. But recent epigraphic and topographic studies, C14 analysis and other archaeological discoveries, confronted with Eusebius’ panegyric, give us data in order not to identify Paulinus’s cathedral with the remains of “Basilica of Quarter Sand”; and, in contrary, to propose the identification of the latter, which seemingly had martyrial and funerary functions, with the Saint Mary of Swamp mentioned in the Acts of the Synod held under the aegis of Epiphanius of Tyre on September 16th of 518.
