Romans, barbarians, and the transformation of the Roman world : cultural interaction and the creation of identity in late antiquity by Danuta Shanzer( )

25 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 898 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most significant transformations of the Roman world in Late Aniquity was the integration of barbarian peoples into the social, cultural, religious, and political milieu of the Medierranean world ... These 25 studies do much to break down old stereotypes about the cultural and social segregation of Roman and barbarian populations, and demonstrate that, contrary to the past orthodoxy, Romans and barbarians interacted in a multitude of ways, and it was not just barbarians who experienced 'ethnogenesis' or cultural assimilation. The same Romans who disparaged barbarian behavior also adopted aspects of it in their everyday lives, providing graphic examples of the ambiguity and negotiation that characterized the integration of Romans and barbarians, a process that altered the concepts of identity of both populations. The resultant late antique polyethnic cultural world, with cultural frontiers between Romans and barbarians that became increasingly permeable in both directions, does much to help explain how the barbarian settlement of the west was accomplished with much less disruption than there might have been, and how barbarian populations were integrated seamlessly into the old Roman world"--Publisher description, p. [4] of dust jacket

Society and culture in late antique Gaul : revisiting the sources by Ralph W Mathisen( Book )

16 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Late Roman Gaul is often seen either from a classical Roman perspective as an imperial province in decay and under constant threat from barbarian invasion or settlement, or from the medieval one, as the cradle of modern France and Germany. Standard texts and "moments" have emerged and been canonized in the scholarship on the period, be it Gaul aflame in 407 or the much-disputed baptism of Clovis in 496/508. This volume avoids such stereotypes. It brings together state-of-the-art work in archaeology, literary, social, and religious history, philology, philosophy, epigraphy, and numismatics not only to examine under-used and new sources for the period, but also critically to reexamine a few of the old standards. This will provide a fresh view of various more unusual aspects of late Roman Gaul, and also, it is hoped, serve as a model for ways of interpreting the late Roman sources for other areas, times, and contexts.

P. 22 : Allusion à saint Maurice et la légion thébaine
Handschriften und Papyri Wege des Wissens by Daniela Mairhofer( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wissen, Information und Vernetzung waren in der vormodernen Welt ebenso wie heute eine wesentliche Voraussetzung für den Erfolg in Gesellschaft, Wissenschaft und Wirtschaft. Aber die Vermittlung von Wissen war in der Zeit vor dem Buchdruck schwierig und mühevoll? und die Verbreitung von Schriftgut ebenso wie der Transport von brieflichen Mitteilungen ein heikles und langwieriges Unterfangen. Umso wichtiger war die Pflege von persönlichen Netzwerken: Antike Papyri und mittelalterliche Handschriften waren die Medien der Vermittlung und des Austausches. Sie legen beredtes Zeugnis ab von den Bemühungen der Menschen um den Zugang zu Bildung und Literatur, illustrieren aber auch die Verbreitung von Nachrichten über die oftmals weit gespannten Netzwerke der Kommunikation. Fast alles, was wir heute an schriftlichem Kulturgut des Altertums besitzen, ist über diese "Wege des Wissens" überliefert."--Page 9

Letters and selected prose by Avitus( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alcimus Ecdicius Avitus, bishop of Vienne from c.494 to c.518, is known for his poetic works, but his Latin prose style has led to some neglect of his letters. This first complete translation of the letters into English gives access to an important source for the history of the Burgundian Kingdom in the early sixth century. -- Amazon.com

A commentary on Jerome's Contra Vigilantium by Amy Oh( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The dissertation is comprised of four parts: introductory chapters, a text with an en face translation, a philological/historical commentary, and an appendix. The first chapter introduces Vigilantius, discusses why a commentary of the Contra Vigilantium is needed, and provides a biography, supported by literary and historical evidence in response to the bolder and more fanciful account of W.S. Gilly. The second chapter treats Vigilantius as an exegete. From a sample of his exegesis preserved in Jerome's Ep. 61, I determine that Jerome dismissed Vigilantius' exegesis because he wanted to protect his own orthodoxy. The third chapter situates Vigilantius in the debate on relic worship. His position is valuable because he opposed most of his contemporaries, decrying relics instead of supporting their translation and veneration
