  • On a recent book by Alan Cameron: The Last Pagans of Rome
    • Abstract: Ce long mémoire est en fait un compte rendu développé du récent livre de Al. Cameron (The Last Pagans of Rome), comportant cependant une spécificité qui doit être signalée. Si les parties initiale et finale concernent l’ensemble de cet ouvrage de 800 pages, le reste est formé d’une suite d’études particulières qui ne discutent en détail qu’une partie des thèmes qui y sont abordés, à savoir ceux qui m’intéressent plus spécifiquement et à propos desquels Al. Cameron défend des positions fort différentes des miennes : le portrait des derniers païens de Rome, le refus du grand pontificat par Gratien, le Carmen contra paganos, la fin du règne de Théodose et l’après-Frigidus, Aurélien et Apollonios de Tyane, Nicomaque Flavien et ses Annales, l’Epitome de Caesaribus, Nicomaque Flavien, Symmaque et Macrobe, Eunape et Zosime, Jean d’Antioche, enfin l’Histoire Auguste, sa date de composition et sa place dans le débat entre païens et chrétiens.CONTREPOINT: Fabian Clément : À propos de l’ouvrage de St. Ratti, Polémiques entre païens et chrétiens, Paris 2012

  • Early Christian architecture of the Caucasus: problems of typology
    • Abstract: Dans le Caucase du sud, les monuments architecturaux de l’époque paléochrétienne sont très nombreux. Dans son mémoire d’habilitation, rédigé en allemand et soutenu à l’Université de Jena sous le titre Frühchristliche Architektur in Kaukasien. Die Entwicklung der christlichen Sakralbaus in Lazika, Iberien, Armenien, Albanien und den Grenzregionen vom 4. bis zum 7. Jh. - L’architecture paléochrétienne dans le Caucase. Le développement de l’édifice sacré chrétien en Lazique, Ibérie, Arménie, Albanie et dans les régions limitrophes du IVeau VIIesiècle (Vienne, 2007) -, Annegret Plontke-Lüning envisage plus de 260 monuments. Pour la première fois, sont réunis dans un seul ouvrage la plupart de ces monuments des IVe-VIIesiècles. L’entreprise est certes très ambitieuse : A. Plontke- Lüning utilise néanmoins la méthode traditionnelle de l’analyse typologique. Or, aujourd’hui, les ressources mêmes de cette méthode sont souvent contestables. Non seulement les aspects historiques, chronologiques et topographiques, ainsi que certaines caractéristiques de l’architecture proprement dite échappent de manière générale à une telle analyse, mais il paraît également difficile, dans l’état actuel des recherches, d’établir un tableau cohérent de l’histoire de cette architecture. Subsistent encore par ailleurs des désaccords concernant, sur le plan concret, l’identification des types architecturaux. Ce livre suscite et, très probablement, suscitera encore des discussions et des débats. A. Plontke-Lüning a eu raison de conclure son livre de manière significative en disant que « la nouvelle évaluation de l’architecture du Caucase vient juste de commencer » (« Die Neubewertung der Architektur Kaukasiens hat gerade esrt begonnen » [p. 348]).

  • Nouvelles recherches sur l’ensemble paléochrétien et
           médiéval d’Ereruyk en Arménie
    • Abstract: This article presents the first results of a new archaeological survey carried out by the LA3M laboratory (CNRS / Aix-Marseille University), in cooperation with archaeologists from Armenia, on Yereruyk Early Christian and Medieval site, in the North-West of the Republic of Armenia.The report is introduced by a brief history of the study of Yereruyk, and a short presentation of its place in Armenian architecture. Then follow synthetic observations on the main fields of intervention of LA3M’s multidisciplinary team: building archaeology of preserved elevations, lapidary material, excavations in the necropolis (cemetery), on the basilica’s South edge, anthropological aspects of these investigations, and lastly, preliminary geomorphologic observations around the remains of a “dam”. The article ends with prospects of orientations for following campaigns.

  • Inscriptions inédites du Kef (antique Sicca Veneria, Tunisie)
    • Abstract: Three of the Christian inscriptions presented here are epitaphs discovered in a chaptel inside an important Roman thermal complex disaffected without any precise date. Whereas both of the first texts are not very orignal, the third one is much more interesting. It is inscribed on a marbeled slab at the entrance of an apsidal room isolated from the rest of the space by chancels, and belongs to a preast “Crescentius sanctus”. The latter word is generally reserved to martyrs, confessors or bishops, but we can here understand it in discovering the rest of the inscription: corpus digne in seculo conbersatum (instead of conversatum) in hoc loco in pace constatesse humatu(m). In comparison with other texts such as Agaune in Gaule (ILC 3766), digne in seculo conbersatum could mean that our preast had led his life without excluding ascetism. The use of constat followed by the infinitive proposition, which is a lawful word (inscription of Roman catacombes), is written on this epitaph because of its solemnity, unless we link this word to corpus and sanctus in a context of a priviliged inhumation - which is probably certain.

  • Revalorización de lo clásico en la España tardoantigua y
           altomedieval. Un análisis a través de la decoración
           arquitectónica
    • Abstract: Late Antique and Early Medieval world is marked by a complexity of social, cultural and economic phenomena, which evolve from the classical to the medieval patterns, with changing and developing elements, and periodically returning elements. Artistic productions, and architectural decoration in particular, were not strangers to this process, since they never abandoned classicism definitely that survives through two phenomena: old material recycling and stylistic imitation of classical models. Both phenomena, which respond to ideological, symbolic and economy of means factors, are often interrelated. They are the result of a reappraisal of the classic that has the ability to transport the spectator to a bygone era and the coexistence of spolia and imitations pursues usually the homogenization of the elements that decorate a building.

  • Los contextos de fundación de las iglesias tardoantiguas en Galicia
           (ss. V-VIII): substratos arqueológicos, distribución y
           significados
    • Abstract: This paper aims to analyze and discuss the different spatial contexts in which churches were founded in Galicia (Northwest Spain) between the 5thand the 8thcentury. This is a topic with great potential, but scarcely studied so far by Spanish historians, since texts offer very little evidences about the specific contexts of foundation, and material data have almost only been approached from perspectives of traditional archaeology or history of art. The present work aims to explore these spatial contexts of Galician churches foundation from a catalogue of 50 possible Late Antique ecclesiastical buildings, based both on archaological works and stilistic-typological approaches. Although some of the data are still problematic, interesting ideas relating distribution and archaeological substrates can be observed in the general corpus. Following these premises, in the first part it is discussed the wider geographical frame of church foundation, mainly the distribution of evidences in relation to different Galician environments and Late Antique territorial articulation. So, it is observed an important relationship between evidences of churches and Roman-Late Roman dynamic axis and areas in Galicia. The second part analyzes the relation of the evidences with their archaeological substrates and discusses different evolutions from Roman to Medieval uses, which are not always lineal. This means dealing with the concepts of continuity-break and pragmatical-symbolical reuse, and it will be discussed here whether material techniques are reliable indicators of socioeconomical development. In the third part some proposals regarding different historical and geographical contexts for church foundation in Late Antique and Early Medieval Galicia are presented. Complexity and variety in cases are likely to be bigger than usually thought and approaches such as the study of building techniques can be, in the future, a powerful indicator to solve some problems. In general, in spite of many limits, Late Antique foundation of churches in Galicia, show similar characteristics to other Western European regions.

  • L’Antiquité à tout prix ' Réflexions sur les
           Saturnales de Macrobe
    • Abstract: A semantic analysis of two lemmas, antiquitas and uetustas, shows that Macrobius does not look towards Antiquity with blind fervour, but with a kind of qualified respect. In the eyes of the members of the banquet of his Saturnalia, Virgil achieves perfection. By making use of previous authors, he maintained their life and promoted them to a greater destiny: the Mantuan is not a despoiler but a defender of literary inheritance. Regarding Servius, the one presented by Macrobius is rather different from the real Servius: whereas the latter took from the poets of the Silver Age of Latin literature - Lucan, Statius and Juvenal - to explain the work of Virgil, the one pictured by Macrobius does not.

  • The presence and treatment of Gratia in Augustine’s Sermones ad
           Populum on the liturgical feast of Pentecost: do anti-donatist and
           anti-pelagian polemics influence Augustine’s preaching'
    • Abstract: Cette contribution analyse la présence et le traitement spécifique de la Grâce dans les Sermones ad populum que saint Augustin a donné à l’occasion de la fête liturgique de Pentecôte. Treize sermons sont liés à cette célébration : ss. 29, 29A, 29B, 266-272, 272A, 272B, 378 ; aucun n’avait jusqu’ici été étudié en détail et tous n’avaient pas été pris en compte. Par ailleurs, aucune attention n’a jamais été accordée, dans les sermons liturgiques en général, au thème de la grâce. Il est apparu intéressant de voir si, et comment, saint Augustin aborde le thème de la grâce dans le cas particulier des sermons liturgiques et jusqu’à quel point il le traite différemment dans ses autres écrits, notamment ceux à l’encontre des idées de Pélage.

  • La réforme administrative de Dioclétien et les cités
           africaines
    • Abstract: Diocletian divided many provinces and created the system of dioceses made up of several provinces. Many scholars consider his reform as establishing greater centralization: henceforth each provincial governor could control more strictly the cities under his rule. A sentence of Lactantius’ De Mortibus Persecutorum (VII, 4) is frequently cited in order to justify that view, but the fact that he was a Christian writer who harshly criticized the persecutors should not be overlooked. The aim of this article is to reconsider the real effect of the administrative reform on the relationship between the provincial cities and the imperial authority in the case of the African provinces, where many inscriptions give us abundant information.First, the situation of Proconsularis is discussed. The date of the division of that province is uncertain: there is a strong case for 303, but 294/295 is possible. Therefore we examine successively the situation under Diocletian before 294, then from 295 on, ending with an analysis of the situation under of the reign of Constantine. In the first part of Diocletian’s reign, the activities of proconsul T. Cl. Aurelius Aristobulus are very important, but the province was not yet divided during his term. His activities should not be regarded as evidence for centralization, but as a policy aimed at facilitating the provincial reform. The province of Africa Proconsularis seems to be divided immediately after his departure. In the second part of Diocletian’s reign, no inscription testifies the development of centralization. Many cities continued to restore and construct public works and dedicate inscriptions to the Tetrarchic emperors on their own initiative and at their own expense.In the reign of Constantine, the influence of senatorial governors seems to get stronger than before. According to some scholars, that situation was created by Diocletian’s administrative reform. But due to the shortness of his term, a provincial governor did not matter to the cities. Rather, they wanted to reinforce long relationship with influential senators, as the ordo recovered influence and power under Constantine.It seems that the governors of Numidia and Mauretania encroached more on the municipal life than those of Proconsularis and Byzacena. But such a situation was not created by the reform of Diocletian: in Numidia, the third Augustan legion was stationed there and governors could use the soldiers. Besides, the number of cities was limited. In Mauretania, cities were few, and the governors had to make war against the mountain dwellers.In conclusion, the examination of epigraphic and legal documents does not testify the development of centralization after the administrative reform of Diocletian. The differences between provinces and the effects of political change should be paid more attention to better comprehend the relationship between provincial cities and the imperial authority.

    • Abstract: Le feuillet en ivoire dit de Consécration ou d’Apothéose, conservé au British Museum à Londres, pose beaucoup de problèmes délicats : quand et où a-t-il été produit ' Qui en est le protagoniste ' Qui en était le commanditaire ' Quel était le sujet du second feuillet du diptyque ' Certains ont voulu identifier le protagoniste à un empereur : Antonin le Pieux, ou Marc Aurèle, ou Julien dit l’Apostat, en plaçant l’ivoire vers 430/486. D’autres l’ont associé à un homme privé : le sénateur Symmaque, décédé en 402, ou Théodose père. J’estime que l’ivoire montre Quintus Aurelius Memmius Symmaque, consul en 485, et que le feuillet perdu était consacré à son beau-fils, le philosophe Boèce. En outre, je propose que le diptyque ait été commandé par les deux fils du Boèce - Fl. Symmaque et Fl. Boèce - en mémoire de la mort par exécution, en 525 environ, de leur père et grand-père.

  • The transformation of Roman slavery: an economic myth'
    • Abstract: Cet article traite de la question de l’esclavage romain en tant que problème dans la tradition du matérialisme historique. Face à l’ampleur exceptionnelle du système esclavagiste romain, les historiens de l’économie ont élaboré des théories tendant à expliquer sa croissance et son développement. Marx et Weber surtout, dans leurs efforts initiaux pour historiciser le développement économique, ont opéré une forte distinction entre les processus pré-capitalistes et capitalistes. Ils ont trouvé, dans la thèse de la conquête, une explication toute prête pour rendre raison de l’expansion de l’esclavagisme romain - cette thèse revenant à considérer que le système esclavagiste romain était la conséquence directe de l’impérialisme romain. Cette vision a eu un sérieux impact sur la perception de la dynamique historique du système et a notamment eu une profonde influence sur la manière dont la « fin » ou « transformation » de l’esclavage a été abordée. Le présent article suggère que les débats contemporains - par exemple les récentes discussions entre Wickham et Banaji - ont été influencés par ces premières tentatives pour distinguer l’esclavagisme romain du capitalisme moderne.

  • La production rurale dans la phase finale du royaume de la Grande
           Arménie : le témoignage de Moïse de Khorène
    • Abstract: In the XVth chapter of his monograph Armenia in the Period of Justinian, Nikolaj Adontz traced a short but important outline of the problems of land tenure in the kingdom of Greater Armenia. Adontz eventually praised the documentary value of the History of Armenia (Patmut‘iwn Hayoc‘) by Movsēs Xorenats‘i, a historian who nowadays is considered with suspicion. In his historiographical work, he claims that the Arsacid dynasty founded the basis of the society of the kingdom of Greater Armenia, including the organization of landed property. Accordingly, Xorenats‘i is, to a certain extent, more sensitive to the Realien than the other contemporary Armenian historiographers, who prefer to concentrate on social relations rather than considering the material and administrative aspects of rural economy.

  • Oil and wine press technology in its economic context: screw presses, the
           rural economy and trade in Late Antiquity
    • Abstract: La principale innovation concernant la technologie du pressoir à vin et à huile depuis presque 2000 ans intervient entre le Iersiècle avant J. C. et le Iersiècle après J. C., avec l’utilisation de la vis, mais la diffusion la plus large de cette technologie ne s’est faite qu’à l’époque tardive au Levant, en Égypte, à Chypre et en Turquie. Comment la diffusion d’une telle innovation se répercute-t-elle dans le cadre plus général de l’économie rurale ' Des exemples de pressoirs des Ieret IIesiècles après J. C. en Italie, Gaule et Espagne, ainsi que ceux du Proche-Orient tardif témoignent des conditions favorables qu’a pu offrir l’exportation intensive des productions à l’adoption de nouveaux mécanismes de pressoirs. Pour autant, l’absence notable de pressoirs à vis en Tunisie, Tripolitaine et Methana montre que de hauts niveaux de production ne suffisaient pas à stimuler de tels changements techniques. La présence de propriétaires locaux ou de métayers vivant à proximité de leurs terres semble avoir eu plus d’impact sur l’innovation de techniques productives. Les formes d’habitat de la Méditerranée orientale apparaissent en ce sens significatives. Contrairement aux petites fermes dispersées de l’Occident, elles pouvaient manifestement fournir une importante main d’oeuvre saisonnière nécessaire à des opérations de pressoirs à vis laborieux. Plusieurs petits pressoirs à vis correspondaient sans doute à une bonne solution technologique pour de tels producteurs, en leur permettant de traiter plus efficacement les différents lots de raisins ou d’olives.

  • L’économie rurale et les productions en Gaule durant
           l’Antiquité tardive : moyens et techniques de production
    • Abstract: Research on late Antique rural Gaul has sufficiently progressed these last decades, in order to draw a global outline of rural economy, its tools and techniques. After an introduction to the evolution of late rural Gaul, this article examines the main agrarian productions, and analyses the changes that took place from the end of the 3rdcentury onwards. Livestock breeding, cereal, vegetable and fruits, as well as wine and oil production are successively analysed, based on examples chosen for their exemplary character. Apart from these agrarian productions, equal attention is given to non-agrarian resources, that seem to take an important place in state-owned economy. Lastly, cereal processing enables the questioning of innovating techniques.

  • La structure agraire dans l’Empire tardif au miroir du Code
           Théodosien : quelques observations
    • Abstract: The Theodosian Code, which was first enforced in January 439, was meant as a tool to enable lawyers to put an end to ceaseless squabbles caused by a host of confused and obscure texts. After a brief reminder of the models relating to the later Roman Empire as put forward by scholars, this paper aims to deal with three aspects of the judiciary relations between men and land as shown by the constitutions, namely the usurpatio of land, the issue of agri deserti and the ways and means to which the Res privata resorted to make their estates profitable.

  • Questioni di storia agraria tardoromana: schiavi, coloni, villae
    • Abstract: Three general issues, which have been recently widely discussed, are relevant to the historical reconstruction of different provincial setups in Late Antiquity.One issue is whether rural slavery was quantitatively limited everywhere in the Empire and should be included in the free colonate, as scholars mainly argued in past decades, or whether it remained the type of labour more suitable to agricultural systems oriented towards a market economy, thus particularly flourishing in the East during the 4th-5thcentury AD development.Recent economic and legal historical research has identified colonate not as an organic part of agricultural systems where property did not concentrate on direct production but as a different institution: not a type of land rent but a “contract of employment” where coloni cultivated manorial lands (here again East and Egypt predominate) and were paid by the use of plots of land. Therefore in a kind of “precapitalistic” context the colonic workforce was a salary.Lastly was the luxurious Late Roman villa (praetorium) mainly the site for accumulation of surpluses produced autonomously in colonic farms or did it keep specific features of the classic model, i.e. resident slaves and direct agricultural production' Were well-known western villas similar to those still to be explored thoroughly in the East'

  • Death in the countryside: some thoughts on the effects of famine and
           epidemics
    • Abstract: Cet article vise à présenter un panorama critique de la recherche actuelle sur l’impact des crises de subsistance et des épidémies sur les populations des campagnes tardo-antiques. Mon intention est d’offrir un état de la question, ainsi que des suggestions pour des recherches futures. Dans cette étude centrée sur l’est de la Méditerranée, l’apport des sources écrites est confrontée aux données des études paléopathologiques récentes qui nous éclairent sur l’état de santé et de nutrition des populations rurales entre le IVeet le VIIIesiècle. La présence de maladies comme la peste, la malaria ou la lèpre est aussi bien évaluée que les états qui prouvent une malnutrition chronique et ses effets sur les populations.

  • Évolution démographique et modes d’occupation du sol en
           Syrie du Nord : les cas du Ǧebel Waṣṭāni, du
           Ğebel Zāwiye et des Marges arides (IIe-VIIe s.)
    • Abstract: The three papers presented here sum up some of the results achieved by three archeological missions in Northern Syria. Focusing mainly on settlement and occupation dynamics, these contributions are dealing with methodological approaches dictated by geographical and archaeological features in each area: Ǧebel Waṣṭāni, Ğebel Zāwiye and northern Syria’s steppes. They successfully draw out common occupation patterns in these regions during Late Antiquity.B. Riba, Démographie et dynamique de l’occupation du Ǧebel Waṣṭāni dans le Massif calcaire de la Syrie du Nord (IIe-VIe siècles)The interest in the archaeological heritage of the Ǧebel Waṣṭāni, in the Limestone Massif of northern Syria, is fairly recent despite the privileged position of the ridge between Antioch and Apamea. Following the surveys carried out by Franciscans in the 1980s, several research surveys were conducted from 2002 as part of the “Syrian Mission of Banassara and Ǧebel Waṣṭāni”. They were undertaken over the whole mountain range, and in particular at the sites Banassara and Kefert Ἁqab. Currently, these surveys allow us to understand the conditions of settlement of Gebel Wastani, the characteristics of the implementation of rural housing, and the modes of development of village communities in the Roman and Byzantine periods. They are also an opportunity to consider the place of the ridge in the general evolution of the Limestone Massif.C. Duvette, Le Ğebel Zāwiye (Massif calcaire de la Syrie du Nord) : l’architecture domestique reflet d’une évolution démographiqueMore than 200 rural settlements reflect the attractiveness of the Ğebel Zāwiye, the southernmost and largest of the limestone hills of northern Syria, between the 2nd and the 6th century AD. The growing population of this region during this period mainly resulted in the development of villages surrounded by agricultural parcels. We have an image still virtually intact of these rural settlements in some areas, and a description of their development is possible in terms of individual and related growth processes. The evolution of domestic architecture is one of the focuses of these studies.M. Rivoal, Les fluctuations du peuplement antique dans la steppe de Syrie du Nord en question (IIe-VIIe siècle)From the beginning of the Roman period, the steppe’s fringe of Northern Syria experienced a strong sedentary expansion eastwards which reached its peak towards the end of Byzantine period. During the last two decades, the “Arid Margins Survey” has drawn a vivid picture of this gradual conquest. However, many questions remain beyond the reach of surface surveys, such as occupancy duration or differences between Roman, Byzantine or Umayyad occupation on a same site. The very phenomenon of this expansion is still to be understood. It may have involved massive immigration of sedentary people from neighboring countries as much as nomad herder’s settling down.
