Richard Wagner has arguably the greatest and most long-term influence on wider European culture of all nineteenth-century composers. And yet, among the copious English-language literature examining Wagner's works, influence, and character, research into the composer’s impact and role in Russia and Eastern European countries, and perceptions of him from within those countries, is noticeably sparse. Wagner in Russia, Poland and the Czech Lands aims to redress imbalance and stimulate further research in this rich area. The eight essays are divided in three parts - one each on Russia, the Czech lands and Poland - and cover a wide historical span, from the composer’s first contacts with and appearances in these regions, through to his later reception in the Communist era. The contributing authors examine his influences in a wide range of areas such as music, literary and epistolary heritage, politics, and the cultural histories of Russia, the Czech lands, and Poland, in an attempt to establish Wagner’s place in a part of Europe not commonly addressed in studies of the composer.

The study of the family is one of the major lacunas in Byzantine Studies. Angeliki Laiou remarked in 1989 that ’the study of the Byzantine family is still in its infancy’, and this assertion remains true today. The present volume addresses this lacuna. It comprises 19 chapters written by international experts in the field which take a variety of approaches to the study of the Byzantine family, and embrace a chronological span from the later Roman to the late Byzantine empire. The context is established by chapters focusing on the Roman roots of the Byzantine family, the Christianisation of the family, and the nature of the family in contemporaneous cultures (the late antique west and the Islamic east). Key methodological approaches to the Byzantine family are highlighted and discussed, in particular prosopographical and life course approaches. The contribution of hagiography to the understanding of the Byzantine family is analysed by several authors; other chapters on the family and children in art and on the archaeology of the Middle Byzantine house explore the material evidence that can shed light on the Byzantine family. Overall, the diversity of families that existed in Byzantium (blood, fictive, metaphorical) is emphasised, and chapters consider the specific cases of ascetic, monastic, aristocratic and peasant families, as well as the imperial family, which is illuminated by the comparative case of a Caliphal family. The volume is topped and tailed by a Preface and an Afterword by the editors, which address the state of the field and consider the way ahead. Thus the volume is vital in putting the subject of the Byzantine Family in sharp focus and setting the research agenda for the future.

Centré sur la problématique de la peur et de l'esclavage le 29e colloque du GIREA qui s'est tenu à Rethymnon en novembre 2004 s'est voulu un rassemblement international d'antiquisants qui a porté son attention sur une thématique qui incitait à l'analyse de la peur par le biais de la logique de domination et de soumission, rappelant ainsi ce qui fut perçu par plusieurs historiens comme une ambiguïté inhérente au statut des émotions : à la fois produits des instances dirigeantes et productrices de mouvements et de comportements collectifs et individuels. Le couple du maître et de l'esclave, soumis à ce schéma d'autorité et d'obéissance, de liberté et de servitude, de suprématie et de soumission, se prêtait de manière exemplaire à ce domaine qui se veut novateur, même si les stoïciens, bien avant nos inquiétudes historiographiques modernes ont su montrer à leur façon la pertinence de l'inégalité de sentiments dans la gérance de soi et du monde.

These conclusions are based on my use of a broader range of sources, and a more historically sensitive definition of the political. I study representations of ancients in tragedies, novels, periodicals, and submissions to academie competitions between 1748 and 1789. These sources convey the fictionalized, domesticated forms in which eighteenth-century audiences encountered ancient republican exemplars, much more accurately than the sampling of political theory (Rousseau, Mably) examined in most studies of classical republicanism. In terms of the politics of ancient-inspired texts, Cambridge-School-influenced scholars rely on methods of intellectual history to determine which texts were oppositional. Borrowing models of the political from theorists like Raymond Williams, Jean Comaroff and John Comaroff, and Jacques Ranciere, I inquire, instead, what artifacts contemporaries found to be politically charged, and in what contexts productions previously considered unthreatening acquired oppositional meanings.
