Myths, martyrs, and modernity : studies in the history of religions in honour of Jan N. Bremmer by Jitse H. F Dijkstra( )

14 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume in honour of Jan N. Bremmer contains the contributions of numerous students, colleagues, and friends offered to him on the occasion of his 65th birthday. Throughout his career, Bremmer has distinguished himself as an internationally renowned scholar of religion both past and present, including first and foremost Greek and Roman religion, but also early Christianity and post-classical developments in religion and spirituality. In line with these three main areas of Bremmera (TM)s research, the volume is divided into three parts, bringing together contributions from distinguished sch
The encroaching desert : Egyptian hagiography and the medieval west by Jitse H. F Dijkstra( )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents a series of case studies concerning the use and reuse of Egyptian hagiography in Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages. The first three contributions analyze the use of Egyptian hagiography in the context of late antique Egypt and, in particular, examine to what extent these texts can be used as historical sources for the reconstruction of traditional (pagan) religion. The other contributions illustrate the different contexts in which Egyptian hagiography was reused in the medieval West. The book is an important contribution to the current debate about the usefulness of Egyptian hagiography as a historical source for late antique Egypt and to the study of the reception of the desert fathers in the medieval West
Philae and the end of ancient Egyptian religion : a regional study of religious transformation (298-642 CE) by Jitse H. F Dijkstra( Book )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The famous island of Philae, on Egypt's southern frontier, can be considered the last major temple site where Ancient Egyptian religion was practiced. According to the Byzantine historian Procopius, in 535-537 CE the Emperor Justinian ordered one of his generals to end this situation by destroying the island's temples. This account has usually been accepted as a sufficient explanation for the end of the Ancient Egyptian cults at Philae. Yet it is by no means unproblematic. This book shows that the event of 535-537 has to be seen in a larger context of religious transformation at Philae, which was more complex and gradual than Procopius describes it. Not only are the various Late Antique sources from and on Philae taken into account, for the first time the religious developments at Philae are also placed in a regional context by analyzing the sources from the other major towns in the region, Syene (Aswan) and Elephantine."--Jacket
Inside and out : interactions between Rome and the peoples on the Arabian and Egyptian frontiers in Late Antiquity( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years, exciting new discoveries of inscriptions and archaeological remains on the Arabian Peninsula have led to a re-evaluation of the peoples on the Arabian frontier, which through their extensive contacts with Rome and Persia are now seen as dynamic participants in the Late Antique world. The present volume contributes to this recent trend by focusing on the contrast between the 'outside' sources on the peoples of the frontier - the Roman view - and the 'inside' sources, that is, the precious material produced by the Arabs themselves, and by approaching these sources within an anthropological framework of how peripheral peoples face larger powers. For the first time, the situation on the Arabian frontier is also compared with that on the southern Egyptian frontier, where similar sources have been found of peoples such as the Blemmyes and Noubades. Thus, the volume offers a richly-documented examination of the frontier interactions in these two vibrant and critically-important areas of the Late Antique East."--

Religious encounters on the southern Egyptian frontier in Late Antiquity (AD 298-642) by Jitse H. F Dijkstra( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De Oudegyptische cultus op Philae, een eiland gelegen in het uiterste zuiden van het Oude Egypte en het Romeinse rijk, heeft altijd een uitzonderingspositie ingenomen in het onderzoek naar de religieuze overgang van de Oudegyptische godsdienst naar het christendom in de late Oudheid (4de-7de eeuw n.Chr.). Dit heeft alles te maken met de ligging van Philae aan de grens met het zuidelijker gelegen Nubië. Terwijl algemeen wordt aangenomen dat Egypte in de 6de eeuw christelijk was geworden, zouden de laatste priesters van Philae de rituelen nog in stand hebben gehouden. Dit beeld is gebaseerd op een passage uit het werk van de 6de-eeuwse, Byzantijnse historicus Procopius, waarin deze vertelt hoe twee volkeren die leefden in het Nijldal in Nubië ten zuiden van Philae, de Blemmyers en de Noebaden, de tempels nog bezochten tot in de regeerperiode van keizer Justinianus (527-565). Volgens Procopius maakte deze keizer een einde aan de ‘heidense’ cultus door opdracht te geven aan zijn generaal Narses de tempels te vernietigen. Aldus geschiedde: Narses zette de priesters gevangen en stuurde de godenbeelden naar Byzantium (Constantinopel). Met deze gebeurtenis, die is te dateren tussen 535 en 537, zou een einde zijn gekomen aan de Oudegyptische cultus op Philae en daarmee aan de eeuwenoude Egyptische godsdienst. Er zijn echter problemen verbonden aan deze letterlijke interpretatie van Procopius. Alleen al de mededeling dat de tempels vernietigd werden roept argwaan op, want de tempels van Philae behoren tot op de dag van vandaag tot de best bewaarde antieke monumenten in heel Egypte. Ook de suggestie dat de Oudegyptische cultus door toedoen van de Blemmyers en de Noebaden in de zesde eeuw springlevend was, roept vragen op. Al vanaf de vierde eeuw was er een bisschopszetel gevestigd op Philae en moet er ook een christelijke gemeente hebben geleefd op hetzelfde kleine eiland. Bovendien ligt het voor de hand dat een wereld die geleidelijk aan christelijk werd, haar effect moet heb

Le syncrétisme religieux en Égypte dans l'Antiquité tardive : l'apport des papyrus iatromagiques grecs by Roxanne Bélanger Sarrazin( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

À une époque où le multiculturalisme est devenu un enjeu important pour les sociétés contemporaines, les historiens ont développé un nouvel intérêt par rapport aux phénomènes de contacts interculturels et de syncrétisme religieux dans l'Antiquité. Les papyrus magiques grecs, produits entre le 2e siècle avant notre ère et le 6e siècle de notre ère, représentent une source idéale pour qui désire étudier les interactions culturelles et le syncrétisme religieux en Égypte, en particulier dans l'Antiquité tardive (4e au 7e siècle de notre ère). Les papyrus iatromagiques plus précisément --des textes magiques ayant pour but de guérir ou prévenir des maladies --présentent un double intérêt puisqu'ils contiennent non seulement des éléments de différentes religions (égyptienne, grecque, romaine, judaïsme et christianisme), mais aussi les riches connaissances médicales des divers peuples qui se sont rencontrés en Égypte. En présentant un examen détaillé du vocabulaire et des connaissances médicales, ainsi que des études de cas de documents contenant divers éléments religieux, cette thèse démontre comment les papyrus iatromagiques grecs reflètent les différents types de syncrétisme religieux présents en Égypte dans l'Antiquité tardive

Embodying the Virgin : the Physical Materialization of the Cult of Mary in Late Antique Egypt (Fifth-Ninth Centuries CE) by Sabrina Higgins( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This is a study of the physical manifestation of the cult of the Virgin Mary in Late Antique Egypt, that is, of the point at which Marian veneration, which scholars generally agree coalesced in the fifth century, spilled over into the physical sphere. Three diverging source materials (papyri/inscriptions, archaeology and iconography) are explored in order to answer the central question, which asks: to what extent does the evidence for the physical materialization of the cult of Mary reflect its geographical and chronological diffusion in Late Antique Egypt? Each of the sources materials are collected and analyzed in an independent chapter. The study begins with the papyrological/epigraphical evidence, as it represents the largest body of materials and offers the most substantial datable evidence. Although the papyri and inscriptions are not themselves tangible manifestations of the cult of Mary, they nevertheless mention at least 23 churches or monasteries that were dedicated to her. In Chapter 2, the extant archaeological evidence supplements the data collected in the textual materials by providing an analysis of the layout and iconographical programmes of the few churches of Mary that are actually preserved. Chapter 3 collects 43 wall paintings that depict Mary and analyzes their varying iconographic patterns and immediate spatial contexts. The individual source materials are then brought together for a broader geographical and chronological investigation, which demonstrates that despite the assumed presence of a cult of Mary by the fifth century, this was only the starting point for the consolidation and diffusion of her cult, which reached its peak in the sixth and, especially, the seventh century. This study is the first synthesis of the physical output of the cult of Mary in Late Antique Egypt and thus advances our knowledge of her integration into the society of Christian Egypt on both the chronological and topographical axes. As such, it is also of importance to studies of her cult elsewhere in the Late Antique world, where sources may not be as plentiful and varied
