Letter on the conversion of the Jews by Severus( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 2004 in English and Latin and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an edited text, introduction, and the first English translation of a central document in the history of religious coercion in late antiquity: Severus of Minorca's Letter on the Conversion of the Jews. The Letter describes the forced conversion of the Jews of Minorca to Christianity in AD 418, allegedly under the influence of St. Stephen's relics. Although ostensibly a hagiographical work, the Letter is fundamentally an anti-Jewish document, and therein lies its interest for historians. It offers a fascinating perspective on Jewish-Christian relations in a Mediterranean town, and on the motives for religious intolerance in the unsettled age of the Germanic invasions. In addition, its wealth of information about a diaspora Jewish community in the Western empire makes it unique among the surviving sources

Innovation and reaction in the age of Constantine and Julian by Scott Bradbury( Book )

9 editions published between 1986 and 1990 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examines various aspects of the reaction of the Emperor Julian to what he and many other pagans perceived as the political and cultural innovations of Constantine the Great and his sons. The first three chapters deal with problems of kingship. In Chapter One, I argue that the Letter to Themistius, the fundamental source for Julian's ideas about kingship, has been misdated and misunderstood. I propose a new date for the letter and argue that it reflects not the meditations of the mature Julian, but the intellectual exercise of a frightened new Caesar who wishes to abstain from politics. The Letter to Themistius emerges as an important witness to the political ideology of the "Hellenes" and to the position of Themistius in the internal philosophical debates within paganism. Chapter Two offers a reappraisal of imperial panegyric as a rhetorical genre and as a vehicle for commentary on kingship. It argues through an analysis of court speeches of Eusebius and Libanius that panegyric can offer valuable commentary on contemporary political issues. I also suggest a new interpretation of the panegyrics of Julian, arguing that they are not directed at a court audience, but at private literary gatherings and reflect the private literary activity of men of paideia in the fourth century. In Chapter Three, I argue that Julian's revival of early imperial civilitas could evoke strong approval from pagan contemporaries because it represented an alternative imperial deportment to the Orientalizing court style of Constantius II, a court style which hostile observers invariably associated with tyranny
