Mani at the court of the Persian kings : studies on the Chester Beatty Kephalaia Codex by Iain Gardner( )

16 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Mani at the Court of the Persian Kings the authors explore evidence arising from their project to edit the Chester Beatty Kephalaia codex. This new text presents Mani at the heart of Sasanian Iran in dialogue with its sages and nobles, acting as a cultural mediator between East and West and interpreter of Christian, Iranian, and Indian traditions. Nine chapters study Mani's appropriation of the "law of Zarades" and of Iranian epic; suggest a new understanding of his last days; and analyse his formative role in the history of the antique religions"--
Monasteries and the care of souls in late antique Christianity : cognition and discipline by Paul Dilley( Book )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 'Monasteries and the Care of Souls in Late Antique Christianity', Paul C. Dilley explores the personal practices and group rituals through which the thoughts of monastic disciples were monitored and trained to purify the mind and help them achieve salvation. Dilley draws widely on the interdisciplinary field of cognitive studies, especially anthropology, in his analysis of key monastic 'cognitive disciplines', such as meditation on scripture, the fear of God, and prayer. In addition, various rituals distinctive to communal monasticism, including entrance procedures, the commemoration of founders, and collective repentance, are given their first extended analysis. Participants engaged in 'heart-work' on their thoughts and emotions, which were understood to reflect the community's spiritual state. This book will be of interest to scholars of early Christianity and the ancient world more generally for its detailed description of communal monastic culture and its innovative methodology

The martyrs of Mount Ber'ain by Sebastian P Brock( Book )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Martyrs of Mount Ber’ain is the poignant tale of an Iranian nobleman’s three children, Adarparwa, Mihrnarse, and Mahdukht, who embrace Christianity after the youngest brother’s near-death vision of God. This decision estranges them from their disbelieving father and ultimately results in death at the hands of King Shapur II. Gabriel “the Cow,” abbot of the monastery of Beth ‘Abe, composed the account of these events in the middle of the seventh century. The Martyrs of Mount Ber’ain provides important evidence for enduring concerns of Christian self-definition in the framework of the Sasanian Empire, especially as represented by the Zoroastrian priesthood. The three children, Adarparwa, Mihrnarse, and Mahdukht, work to forget their education by the Magi, with whom they soon find themselves engaged in battle; and yet some key features of the narrative, especially Mihrnarse’s vision, reflect shared idioms between Christians and their Zoroastrian rivals. This rivalry was committed to writing and commemorated even after the Arab conquest, and one of these three sibling-martyrs, the sister Sultana Mahdukht, is still memorialized in both Iraq and the United States."--Publisher's website

Sentiments, networks, literary biography : towards a mesoanalysis of Cicero's Corpus by Caitlin A Marley( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In a field as old as Classics, it difficult to find truly innovative approaches to literary works that have been studied for millennia, and it only becomes more difficult to find something new to explore in works as fundamental to the field as Marcus Tullius Cicero's. However, in the burgeoning field of Digital Humanities, new avenues for textual exploration arise even among the over-picked rubble that is the Classical World. Through the use of computer software, we can search through and statistically analyze corpora of massive sizes. This project uses such techniques to perform a mesoanalysis of Cicero's corpus. Through the use of R and Gephi, I will "read" Cicero's works from a distance and see a much broader view of his character than I could through a traditional close reading of a few texts. This mesoanalysis includes a stylometric analysis of Cicero's entire corpus, a sentiment analysis of his orations, and a network analysis of his letters. The sentiment analysis will explore Cicero as a literary figure. Through a hierarchical cluster analysis in R, I will assess not only how his style changes from genre to genre but within a genre (orations) as well. That analysis will close with an exploration of the lexical richness of his works, how it varies from genre to genre and over his lifetime. For the sentiment analysis, I built a lexicon based on Stoic theory, primarily as it is explained in the Tusculunae Disputationes, and Robert Kaster's work with emotional scripts. After the lexicon was built, I applied it to Cicero's orations in a method similar to Matthew Jockers' syuzhet package for R, and I traced his use of sentiment across the speech. I then compared those trajectories to Latin rhetorical theory, especially the theories included in Cicero's own treatises, in order to see if Cicero had put into effect his own advice or if he had a few techniques that he kept hidden
Deathics : Homeric ethics as thanatology by Tyler Fyotek( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Iliad illustrates good death in war as a "beautiful death," and the Odyssey illustrates good death in the community as a "gentle death." Death is the culmination of one's living actions, and glorious actions are worthy of being remembered by a community in song. Even when a hero no longer can act in the world, he is able, if his actions are preserved in memory, to participate in the life of the community. To be remembered and honored "equally to a god" is the greatest good a mortal can have, insofar as it approximates the immortal existence of the gods. In my conclusion, I also discuss methods of researching the reception of Homeric ethics, especially by Plato
