The original edition of Pompeii: A Sourcebook was a crucial resource for students of the site. Now updated to include material from Herculaneum, the neighbouring town also buried in the eruption of Vesuvius, Pompeii and Herculaneum: A Sourcebook allows readers to form a richer and more diverse picture of urban life on the Bay of Naples. Focusing upon inscriptions and ancient texts, it translates and sets into context a representative sample of the huge range of source material uncovered in these towns. From the labels on wine jars to scribbled insults, and from advertisements for gladiatorial contests to love poetry, the individual chapters explore the early history of Pompeii and Herculaneum, their destruction, leisure pursuits, politics, commerce, religion, the family and society. Information about Pompeii and Herculaneum from authors based in Rome is included, but the great majority of sources come from the cities themselves, written by their ordinary inhabitants – men and women, citizens and slaves. Encorporating the latest research and finds from the two cities and enhanced with more photographs, maps, and plans, Pompeii and Herculaneum: A Sourcebook offers an invaluable resource for anyone studying or visiting the sites.

In Pagans and Christians in Late Antiquity, A.D. Lee documents the transformation of the religious landscape of the Roman world from one of enormous diversity of religious practices and creeds in the 3rd century to a situation where, by the 6th century, Christianity had become the dominant religious force. Using translated extracts from contemporary sources he examines the fortunes of pagans and Christians from the upheavals of the 3rd Century, through the dramatic events associated with the emperors Constantine, Julian and Theodosius in the 4th, to the increasingly tumultuous times of the 5th and 6th centuries, while also illustrating important themes in late antique Christianity such as the growth of monasticism, the emerging power of bishops and the development of pilgrimage, as well as the fate of other significant religious groups including Jews and Manichaeans. This new edition has been updated to include: additional documentary material, including newly published papyri an expanded chapter on the emperor Constantine greater attention to church controversies in the fourth and fifth centuries thoroughly updated references and further reading, taking into account developments in modern scholarship during the past fifteen years. Pagans and Christians in Late Antiquity is an invaluable resource for students of the late antique world, and of early Christianity and the early Church.

Graffiti Als Interaktionsform

Aus Pompeji stammen mehrere tausend informeller Wandinschriften, die bei den Ausgrabungen zwar dokumentiert, aber nur sehr selektiv untersucht wurden. Für die damals neuartige Inschriftengattung prägte man im 19. Jahrhundert den Begriff „Graffiti", der heute für eine Vielzahl ganz unterschiedlicher Schrift- und Textformen verwendet wird. Assoziationen zu modernen Graffiti-Writings und Taggings werden dabei häufig leichtfertig auf antike Graffiti übertragen. Dabei stammt ein Großteil der pompejanischen Ritzinschriften aus den Innenräumen von Wohnhäusern und wirft damit die Frage nach ihrer Akzeptanz und Wahrnehmung auf. Polly Lohmann nähert sich den antiken Graffiti im Vergleich mit ihren modernen Namenspendants einerseits, mit anderen antiken Inschriften, Texten und Bildern andererseits. Fallstudien stellen einzelne Wohnhäuser mit ihren Graffiti vor, und in kontextübergreifenden Vergleichen werden Bezüge zu anderen Text- und Bildgattungen des urbanen Raums aufgezeigt. Sie machen deutlich, dass die pompejanischen Graffiti vielfach von dem geprägt waren, was man im Alltag sah und erlebte.

ليس من فبيل المبالغة القول أن خير كتاب أُخرج للناس في هذا العصر في اكتشاف الحضارات وعلم المصريات، هو كتاب «فجر الضمير» الذي وضعه الأستاذ «برستد» في عام ١٩٣٤، حيث يدلل على أن مصر أصل حضارة العالم ومهدها الأول؛ بل فيها شعر الإنسان لأول مرة بنداء الضمير، فنشأ الضمير الإنساني وترعرع، وبها تكونت الأخلاق النفسية. وقد تناول الكتاب تطور هذا الموضوع منذ أقدم العهود الإنسانية، إلى أن انطفأ قبس الحضارة في مصر حوالي عام ٥٢٥ ق م ، فمصر في نظره حسب الوثائق التاريخية التي وصلتنا عن العالم القديم إلى الآن، هي مهد حضارة العالم؛ وعن هذه الحضارة أخذ العبرانيون، ونقل الأوروبيون عن العبرانيين حضارتهم، وبذلك يكون الأستاذ «برستد» قد هدم بكتابه الخالد هذا، النظريات الراسخة في أذهان الكثيرين القائلة بأن الحضارة الأوروبية أخذت عن العبرانيين.
