Culture, Religion, and Politics in the Greco-Roman World (CRPG)
Culture, Religion, and Politics in the Greco-Roman World
Edited by Kendra Eshleman, Teresa Morgan, Laura Nasrallah, Maren R. Niehoff, and Peter Van Nuffelen
Advisory Board: Milette Gaifman, Martha Himmelfarb, Hayim Lapin, Duncan MacRae, Jörg Rüpke, Lieve Van Hoof
The series responds to an increasing awareness among scholars of the ancient Mediterranean world that phenomena of culture, religion, and politics cannot be isolated, but must instead be studied in relation to each other. Moreover, since the work of the History of Religions School, it is clear that such phenomena cross boundaries of languages, countries, and religions. To render a truly fruitful examination of Greek literature in the Imperial period, the time has come to acknowledge its deep entanglement in Roman politics and to investigate parallels in contemporaneous religious texts. The new series, launched by an international team of experts with a strong interdisciplinary orientation, provides the necessary platform for such pioneering research. Both Jewish and Christian texts as well as those dealing with Greek and Roman religion and philosophy will share the same standing. The series also welcomes studies on other religions and their connections in the Greco-Roman world.

Culture, Religion, and Politics in the Greco-Roman World
Herausgegeben von Kendra Eshleman, Teresa Morgan, Laura Nasrallah, Maren R. Niehoff und Peter Van Nuffelen
Advisory Board: Milette Gaifman, Martha Himmelfarb, Hayim Lapin, Duncan MacRae, Jörg Rüpke, Lieve Van Hoof
Diese neue Buchreihe trägt dem wachsenden Bewusstsein von Wissenschaftlern Rechnung, die sich mit antiken Mittelmeerkulturen befassen, dass Kultur, Religion und Politik nicht mehr isoliert betrachtet werden können, sondern nur in ihren wechselseitigen Beziehungen. Außerdem ist, spätestens seit der Arbeit der Religionsgeschichtlichen Schule, klar, dass derlei Phänomene die Grenzen von Sprache, Ländern und Religionen überschreiten. Um eine wirklich ertragreiche Untersuchung griechischer Literatur in der Kaiserzeit leisten zu können, ist es an der Zeit, ihre tiefgreifende Verwurzelung in römischer Politik anzuerkennen und die Parallelen in zeitgenössischen religiösen Texten zu untersuchen. Diese neue Reihe, die von einem internationalen Team von Fachwissenschaftlern mit stark interdisziplinärer Orientierung gegründet wurde, bietet die notwendige Plattform für solche Pionierarbeiten. Sowohl jüdischen als auch christlichen Texten sowie denen, die sich mit griechischer und römischer Religion und Philosophie befassen, wird dieselbe Bedeutung beigemessen. Die Reihe begrüßt auch Studien zu anderen Religionen und deren Verbindung mit der griechisch-römischen Welt.

Journeys in the Roman East: Imagined and Real

Culture, Religion, and Politics in the Greco-Roman World (CRPG) 2
[Reisen im Osten des Römischen Reichs: Fiktiv und Real.]
Published in English.
In the Roman Empire, travelling was something of a central feature, facilitating commerce, pilgrimage, study abroad, tourism, and ethnographic explorations. The present volume investigates for the first time intellectual aspects of this phenomenon by giving equal attention to pagan, Jewish, and Christian perspectives. A team of experts from different fields argues that journeys helped construct cultural identities and negotiate between the local and the particular on the one hand, and wider imperial discourses on the other. A special point of interest is the question of how Rome engages the attention of intellectuals from the Greek East and offers new opportunities of self-fashioning. Pagans, Jews, and Christians shared similar experiences and constructed comparable identities in dialogue, sometimes polemics, with each other. The collection addresses the following themes: real and imagined geography, reconstructing encounters in distant places, between the bodily and the holy, Jesus' travels from different perspectives, and destination Rome. The articles in each section are arranged in chronological order, ranging from early imperial texts to rabbinic and patristic literature.

Culture, Religion, and Politics in the Greco-Roman World (CRPG) 1
Ed. by Marlis Arnhold, Harry O. Maier, and Jörg Rüpke
[Den Gott sehen. Bildnis, Raum, Vorstellung und Vision in der Religion des Römischen Reichs.]
Published in English.
The first inter-disciplinary and cross-disciplinary work of its kind, this book focuses on the importance of visual culture in the study of classical, Roman, and Christian antiquity. It explores the role of the visual in helping to create a vision of the gods and how commitment to the visibility of the divine affected ancient religious practices, rituals, and beliefs. The essays deploy a wide range of disciplines that include archaeology, iconology, cultural studies, visual anthropology, the study of ancient rhetoric, and the cognitive sciences to consider the visual aspects of ancient religion from a variety of angles. The contributors take up the role of the visual in multiple contexts including domestic art, the imperial cult, martyrology, ritual practice, and temples. This groundbreaking book, which includes essays by classicists, Roman historians, archaeologists, biblical scholars, and scholars of ancient Christian iconography, promises to advance the discussion of the importance and role of visual culture in shaping the religions of antiquity in significant new ways.
