"Inscriptions are for anyone interested in the Roman world and Roman culture, whether they regard themselves as literary scholars, historians, archaeologists, anthropologists, religious scholars or work in a field that touches on the Roman world from c. 500 BCE to 500 CE and beyond. The goal of The Oxford Handbook of Roman Epigraphy is to show why inscriptions matter and to demonstrate to classicists and ancient historians, their graduate students, and advanced undergraduates, how to work with epigraphic sources"--

The Handbook is intended to survey the landscape of contemporary research and chart principal directions of future inquiry. Its aim is to bring to bear upon Roman legal study the full range of intellectual resources of contemporary legal history, from comparison to popular constitutionalism, from international private law to law and society. This unique contribution of the volumesets it apart from others in the field. Furthermore, the volume brings the study of Roman law into closer alignment, and thus into dialogue, with historical, sociological, and anthropological research in law in other periods. The volume is therefore directed not simply to ancient historians and legal historians already focused on the ancient world, but to historians of all periods interested in law and its complex and multifaceted relationship to society.

Sculptures populated both the urban and private realms of the Roman world in numbers unparalleled today. They were essential to communicating political, religious, and social messages, and as such, provide an invaluable entrée into Roman society. This Handbook presents a rigorous appraisal of Roman sculptural studies. It includes material from the early republican period to late antiquity (c. 500 BC to AD 500) and considers sculpture in Rome and in regions dominated by the Roman Empire.

altorientalische Strategien zur Selbsterhaltung

Dieses Buch behandelt ein zentrales Konzept in der mesopotamischen Weltanschauung: den Namen als Grundbestandteil des Menschen, im Leben und nach dem Tod. Im Gegensatz zum organischen Korper ist der Name nicht den Regeln der Sterblichkeit unterworfen und bindet das Individuum auch nach dem Tode ans Diesseits. Um aber diese Form des Weiterlebens zu gewahrleisten, muss der Name so gut wie moglich - mundlich wie auch schriftlich ("geschriebener Name" = Inschrift) - verankert werden; der Bewahrung des Namens kommt deshalb uber die Rolle als Gliederungselement von Erinnerung hinaus die Funktion zu, seinen Trager am Leben zu erhalten.Damit versteht sich die Arbeit als ein Beitrag zum Umgang mit dem Tod, fur Mesopotamien ein kaum erforschtes Gebiet. Die diachrone Behandlung des Themas anhand von Keilschrifttexten aus dem 3. bis 1. vorchristlichen Jahrtausend zeigt, dass der Name als Mittel zum Selbsterhalt eine Konstante der altorientalischen Geisteswelt ist. Es gibt allerdings Entwicklungen, die sich am besten fur den "geschriebenen Namen" fassen lassen, fur dessen Konzeption einschneidende Veranderungen festzustellen sind: Der sich wandelnde Umgang mit dem Namen spiegelt den Wandel im Umgang mit Gegenwart, Vergangenheit und Zukunft in Mesopotamien wider.

One of the most important forms of senatorial representation was a monument embellished with an inscription. Inscription and monumentwere always intimately related, so that epigraphy and the study ofancient historyare challenged to workmore closely with archaeology. Only in this way is it possible to establish a correct understanding of how senators represented themselves.Therefore, the articles collected in this volume create the basis for a new viewpoint of the social and cultural history of the senatorial order under the Roman Empire.

Das politische System der römischen Republik war durch zwei Spannungsfelder gekennzeichnet: Da es keinen Geburtsadel gab, sondern gesellschaftlicher Rang durch politische Betätigung erst erworben werden musste, bestand ein Konkurrenzkampf unter den Mitgliedern senatorischer Familien. Diesem stand die Herstellung von Entscheidungen durch Konsens gegenüber, d.h. durch Verhandlungen, die mit weitgehender Einmütigkeit enden mussten. Vertrauen in das Gegenüber wie in die Leistungsfähigkeit des politischen Systems war eine wesentliche Bedingung für die Gleichzeitigkeit von Konkurrenz und Konsens.

The Oxford Handbook of the Archaeology of Death and Burial reviews the current state of mortuary archaeology and its practice, highlighting its often contentious place in the modern socio-politics of archaeology. It contains forty-four chapters which focus on the history of the discipline and its current scientific techniques and methods. Written by leading, international scholars in the field, it derives its examples and case studies from a wide range of time periods, such as the middle palaeolithic to the twentieth century, and geographical areas which include Europe, North and South America, Africa, and Asia. Combining up-to-date knowledge of relevant archaeological research with critical assessments of the theme and an evaluation of future research trajectories, it draws attention to the social, symbolic, and theoretical aspects of interpreting mortuary archaeology. The volume is well-illustrated with maps, plans, photographs, and illustrations and is ideally suited for students and researchers.

The Oxford Handbook of Late Antiquity offers an innovative overview of a period (c. 300-700 CE) that has become increasingly central to scholarly debates over the history of western and Middle Eastern civilizations. This volume covers such pivotal events as the fall of Rome, the rise of Christianity, the origins of Islam, and the early formation of Byzantium and the European Middle Ages. These events are set in the context of widespread literary, artistic, cultural, and religious change during the period. The geographical scope of this Handbook is unparalleled among comparable surveys of Late Antiquity; Arabia, Egypt, Central Asia, and the Balkans all receive dedicated treatments, while the scope extends to the western kingdoms, and North Africa in the West. Furthermore, from economic theory and slavery to Greek and Latin poetry, Syriac and Coptic literature, sites of religious devotion, and many others, this Handbook covers a wide range of topics that will appeal to scholars from a diverse array of disciplines. The Oxford Handbook of Late Antiquity engages the perennially valuable questions about the end of the ancient world and the beginning of the medieval, while providing a much-needed touchstone for the study of Late Antiquity itself.

Thousands of texts, written over a period of three thousand years on papyri and potsherds, in Egyptian, Greek, Latin, Aramaic, Hebrew, Persian, and other languages, have transformed our knowledge of many aspects of life in the ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern worlds. The Oxford Handbook of Papyrology provides an introduction to the world of these ancient documents and literary texts, ranging from the raw materials of writing to the languages used, from the history of papyrology to its future, and from practical help in reading papyri to frank opinions about the nature of the work of papyrologists. This volume, the first major reference work on papyrology written in English, takes account of the important changes experienced by the discipline within especially the last thirty years.
