Raffaele Pettazzoni and Herbert Jennings Rose, correspondence 1927-1958 : the long friendship between the author and the translator of The all-knowing God, with an appendix of documents by Domenico Accorinti( )

17 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Raffaele Pettazzoni (1883-1959), Professor of the History of Religions at the University of Rome and one of the leading historians of religions in the twentieth century, maintained a long correspondence with Herbert Jennings Rose (1883-1961), the gifted Canadian scholar who was Professor of Greek at St Andrews and is best known for his work in the field of ancient religion and folklore. These letters, spanning the years 1927 to 1958, bear witness to the close relationship between the two scholars and focus on two of Pettazzoni's books, both translated by Rose: Essays on the History of Religions (1954) and The All-Knowing God (1956). They also shed light on Pettazzoni's initiative to the foundation of the journal Numen (1954), and reveal Rose's brilliant personality."--Back cover
Brill's companion to Nonnus of Panopolis by Domenico Accorinti( )

14 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 1,092 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Egyptian Nonnus of Panopolis (5th century AD), author of both the 'pagan' Dionysiaca, the longest known poem from Antiquity (21,286 lines in 48 books, the same number of books as the Iliad and Odyssey combined), and a 'Christian' hexameter Paraphrase of St John's Gospel (3,660 lines in 21 books), is no doubt the most representative poet of Greek Late Antiquity. Brill's Companion to Nonnus of Panopolis provides a collection of 32 essays by a large international group of scholars, experts in the field of archaic, Hellenistic, Imperial, and Christian poetry, as well as scholars of late antique Egypt, Greek mythology and religion, who explore the various aspects of Nonnus' baroque poetry and its historical, religious and cultural background. Contributors are: Domenico Accorinti, Benjamin Acosta-Hughes, Gianfranco Agosti, Herbert Bannert, Alberto Bernabé, Pierre Chuvin, Claudio De Stefani, Jitse H.F. Dijkstra, Gennaro D'Ippolito, Filip Doroszewski, Riemer A. Faber, Roberta Franchi, Rosa García-Gasco, Camille Geisz, Daria Gigli Piccardi, Fotini Hadjittofi, David Hernández de la Fuente, Scott Fitzgerald Johnson, Troels Myrup Kristensen, Nicole Kröll, Anna Maria Lasek, Jane L.

Dionysiaca by Nonnus( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in Italian and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nonnos of Panopolis in Egypt, who lived in the fifth century of our era, composed the last great epic poem of antiquity. The Dionysiaca, in 48 books, has for its chief theme the expedition of Dionysus against the Indians; but the poet contrives to include all the adventures of the god (as well as much other mythological lore) in a narrative which begins with chaos in heaven and ends with the apotheosis of Ariadne's crown. The wild ecstasy inspired by the god is certainly reflected in the poet's style, which is baroque, extravagant, and unrestrained. It seems that Nonnos was in later years converted to Christianity, for in marked contrast to the Dionysiaca, a poem dealing unreservedly with classical myths completely redolent of a pagan outlook, there is extant and ascribed to him a hexameter paraphrase of St. John's Gospel

Le voyage des légendes : hommages à Pierre Chuvin by Michel Tardieu( )

1 edition published in 2019 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

La 4e de couv. indique : "Pierre Chuvin est un voyageur des textes et des terres. Curieux, créatif, inépuisable, il continue d'explorer trois horizons, dont chacun suffirait à combler les réalisations d'une carrière. D'un pied sûr, il suit les chemins magnifiques et parfois de traverse de l'Antiquité, de l'Asie centrale et de la Turquie moderne. Des perspectives si variées ne pouvaient trouver leur développement dans l'espace d'un seul ouvrage. Le présent volume a ainsi pour objet le domaine auquel Pierre Chuvin a consacré ses recherches académiques et son enseignement universitaire : l'étude des textes de l'Antiquité, de préférence tardive. Ses nombreuses contributions au monde savant l'ont établi comme un spécialiste reconnu de la mythologie grecque (Mythologie et géographie dionysiaques; Mythologie grecque. Du premier homme à l'apothéose d'Héraclès) et des questions de société envisagées du point de vue du religieux dans sa Chronique des derniers païens. Avec à son actif les éditions critiques de plusieurs chants des Dionysiaques de Nonnos de Panopolis, il est considéré comme le chef de file de l'école française de poésie tardoantique."
