Constantine & Rome by R. Ross Holloway( Book )

17 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Constantine the Great (285-337) played a crucial role in mediating between the pagan, imperial past of the city of Rome, which he conquered in 312, and its future as a Christian capital. In this book, R. Ross Holloway draws on archaeological evidence to examine Constantine's remarkable building program in Rome, describing a cityscape that was at once Christian and pagan, mirroring the personality of its ruler." "Holloway begins by examining the Christian Church in the period before the Peace of 313, when Constantine and his coemperor Licinius ended persecution of the Christians. He then focuses on the structure, style, and significance of important monuments. He discusses the Arch of Constantine, suggesting that it was begun by Constantine's predecessor Maxentius but finished, with modifications, for the new emperor. He looks at the basilicas of the Constantinian period, including St. John's in the Lateran and St. Peter's, and the imperial mausoleum and basilica at Tor Pignatara on the Via Labicana, which he contends is one of the most innovative complexes in the history of Western architecture. Holloway next surveys the Christian cemeteries of the period and reviews evidence for adaptation of pagan buildings to Christian worship. In a final chapter Holloway advances a new interpretation of the archaeology of the Tomb of St. Peter under the high altar of St. Peter's basilica. The tomb, he concludes, was not the original resting place of the remains venerated as those of the apostle but was created only in 251 by Pope Cornelius."--Jacket
The archaeology of ancient Sicily by R. Ross Holloway( Book )

33 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in English and Italian and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sicily is renowned for the richness of its archaeological record, especially from the classical age. This survey provides the only comprehensive introduction to the wealth of ancient artefacts and monuments discovered on the island." "From the Palaeolithic to the later Roman period, The Archaeology of Ancient Sicily explores all the main topics of archaeological interest. These range from Greek colonisation, sanctuaries and burial, the architecture of temples, houses, theatres and military sites, to sculpture, the cities of the island, and the Sicels. Separate sections explore the fascinating coinage of Sicily and the famous late Roman villa at Piazza Armerina." "With over 200 illustrations, and an exhaustive bibliography - now updated - Professor Holloway's study continues to be the standard work on the archaeology of ancient Sicily. It is also a valuable tool for students of ancient history."--BOOK JACKET
Satrianum; the archaeological investigations conducted by Brown University in 1966 and 1967 by R. Ross Holloway( Book )

12 editions published in 1970 in English and Undetermined and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Satriano (called Satrianum in Latin) was originally a Lucanian town. Excavations have brought to light traces of a small rectangular temple with a banqueting hall, an area for religious ceremonies and a portico. The town was situated at 950 metres above sea level on the top of a hill overlooking the modern town that since 1887 is called Satriano di Lucania (not to be confused with another town called Satriano in Calabria), and which, before taking the name of the destroyed city, was called Pietrafesa and, earlier, Petrafixa. Documents from the ninth century AD onward mention Satriano, which was definitively destroyed in 1430 by order of Queen Joan II of Naples. It is recounted that the queen ordered that it be burned to the ground because of the abduction there of a lady in waiting of the court who was passing through. The inhabitants moved to Pietrafesa. All that remains are some ruins, including those of the cathedral, which was dedicated to Saint Stephen, and a better preserved 12th-century tower."--Wikipedia

Koine : Mediterranean studies in honor of R. Ross Holloway by Derek B Counts( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Oxford English Dictionary defines koine as 'a set of cultural or other attributes common to various groups' . This volume merges an academic career over a half century in breadth and scope with an editorial vision that brings together a chorus of scholarly contributions echoing the core principles of R. Ross Holloways own unique perspective on ancient Mediterranean studies. Through broadly conceived themes, the four individual sections of this volume (I. A View of Classical Art: Iconography in Context; II. Crossroads of the Mediterranean: Cultural Entanglements Across the Connecting Sea; III. Coins as Culture: Art and Coinage from Sicily; and IV. Discovery and Discourse, Archaeology and Interpretation) are an attempt to capture the many and varied trajectories of thought that have marked his career and serve as testimony to the significance of his research. The twenty-four papers (plus four introductory essays to the individual sections, biographical sketch and main introduction) contain recent research on subjects ranging from the Kleophrades Painter to the Black Sea, Sicilian Coinage and archaeology in modern Rome
