Index du bulletin épigraphique de Jeanne et Louis Robert 1978-1984


Publié dans la Revue des études grecques depuis 1888, le Bulletin épigraphiqueprésente et recense de façon critique les parutions relatives aux inscriptions de langue grecque depuis l'époque archaïque jusqu'à Byzance. De 1938 à 1984, le Bulletin épigraphique fut rédigé par Jeanne Robert et Louis Robert, aidés au début par Robert Flacelière. En enrichissant leurs analyses approfondies par des avertissements méthodologiques, J. et L. Robert firent du Bulletin un instrument de travail irremplaçable pour la critique des éditions d'inscriptions grecques et leur interprétation, et pour l'histoire de la Grèce de l'époque archaïque à l'époque byzantine. Cette œuvre fut et demeure pour les historiens, philologues et archéologues un « extraordinaire trésor » (J. Pouilloux).
Cette mine inépuisable pour la connaissance de l'Antiquité peut aisément être explorée et exploitée grâce aux Index rédigés à l'Institut Fernand Courby de Lyon. Après les cinq volumes indexant les années 1938 à 1977 du Bulletin, le présent volume donne la suite et fin de cet index : il porte sur les sept dernières années (1978-1984), qui constituent sans doute les livraisons les plus riches données par J. et L. Robert, alors au sommet de leur art et de leur science.

Eleventh International Congress of Demotic Studies

Eleventh International Congress of Demotic Studies, Oxford, 30 August – 3 September, 2011

Second Announcement

For the dates of the Congress please see above. This will take place in Merton College. It is planned to make the Congress a residential one, so that participants will actually be able to stay in the college (both en-suite and standard rooms will be available). Oxford is a very popular tourist destination, especially around the time when the Congress will take place. Hotel accommodation is limited, especially in and near the city centre, and tends to be quite expensive, so although staying in the college is not mandatory, most participants should find that there is a savings to be made by doing so. At this time I would be grateful if you could answer the questions below and return this form to me so that I can obtain a rough idea of the number of those who are likely to attend. Please note that answering yes to any of these questions does not constitute a commitment on your part.


1) I am interested in attending the Eleventh International Congress of Demotic Studies. (yes/no)

2) I am interested in presenting a paper at the Congress. (yes/no)

3) I am interested in booking accommodation at Merton College. (yes/no)

Description

In Readers and Reading Culture in the High Roman Empire , William Johnson examines the system and culture of reading among the elite in second-century Rome. The investigation proceeds in case-study fashion using the principal surviving witnesses, beginning with the communities of Pliny and Tacitus (with a look at Pliny's teacher, Quintilian) from the time of the emperor Trajan. Johnson then moves on to explore elite reading during the era of the Antonines, including the medical community around Galen, the philological community around Gellius and Fronto (with a look at the curious reading habits of Fronto's pupil Marcus Aurelius), and the intellectual communities lampooned by the satirist Lucian. Along the way, evidence from the papyri is deployed to help to understand better and more concretely both the mechanics of reading, and the social interactions that surrounded the ancient book. The result is a rich cultural history of individual reading communities that differentiate themselves in interesting ways even while in aggregate showing a coherent reading culture with fascinating similarities and contrasts to the reading culture of today.

    REVIEW; Andrea Jördens, Statthalterliche Verwaltung in der römischen Kaiserzeit: Studien zum praefectus Aegypti

    Andrea Jördens, Statthalterliche Verwaltung in der römischen Kaiserzeit: Studien zum praefectus Aegypti. Historia Einzelschriften Bd. 175.   Stuttgart:  Franz Steiner Verlag, 2009.  Pp. vi, 616.  ISBN 9783515092838.  €86.00.   


      Table of Contents



    Reviewed by Peter C. Nadig, Freie Universität Berlin (nadig@zedat.fu-berlin.de)
    When Octavian conquered Egypt in 30 BC he turned the country into a Roman province under the supervision of an equestrian prefect rather than a senatorial propraetor or proconsul. This move led to many assumptions about Roman Egypt, one of which is that it was the personal property of the emperor and another that Roman senators were generally barred from visiting it without the permission of the princeps. Yet Roman Egypt--unlike all other Roman territories--provides us with ample information about imperial administration through the papyri. Andrea Jördens, a papyrologist from Heidelberg, has thoroughly investigated the office of the praefectus Aegypti in her 2002 Habilitationsschrift from Marburg. Her magisterial study has now been published with a few minor revisions and updates. It will remain a standard work on the praefectus Aegypti and on Roman provincial administration.
