Roman Imperialism

in Brill Research Perspectives in Ancient History

Paul J. Burton, 2019

 

Rome engaged in military and diplomatic expansionistic state behavior, which we now describe as ‘imperialism,’ since well before the appearance of ancient sources describing this activity. Over the course of at least 800 years, the Romans established and maintained a Mediterranean-wide empire from Spain to Syria (and sometimes farther east) and from the North Sea to North Africa. How and why they did this is a source of perennial scholarly controversy. Earlier debates over whether Rome was an aggressive or defensive imperial state have progressed to theoretically informed discussions of the extent to which system-level or discursive pressures shaped the Roman Empire. Roman imperialism studies now encompass such ancillary subfields as Roman frontier studies and Romanization.

Religion in the Roman Empire

 

Volume 4 (2018)

 

Religion in the Roman Empire (RRE) is bold in the sense that it intends to further and document new and integrative perspectives on religion in the Ancient World combining multidisciplinary methodologies. Starting from the notion of « lived religion » it will offer a space to take up recent, but still incipient, research to modify and cross the disciplinary boundaries of History of Religion, Archaeology, Anthropology, Classics, Ancient History, Jewish History, Rabbinics, New Testament, Early Christianity, Patristics, Coptic Studies, Gnostic and Manichean Studies, Late Antiquity and Oriental Languages. We hope to stimulate the development of new approaches that can encompass the local and global trajectories of the multidimensional pluralistic religions of antiquity.

Each volume consists of three issues a year, each of approximately 130 pages in length. It includes an editorial, five to seven main articles, and book reviews. All articles and contributions that exceed 8 pages in length are double-blind peer-reviewed. All articles and contributions are in English.

The first issues deal with « Lived Religion: Appropriations of Religion and Meanings in Situations, » « Understanding Objects in Religious Contexts » and with « Practices and Groups, » bringing together studies on textual and archaeological material from all areas of the Mediterranean.

Gnosis: Journal of Gnostic Studies

Volume 03, Hermes Trismegistus, 2018

 

Gnosis: Journal of Gnostic Studies is a peer-reviewed publication devoted to the study of Gnostic religious currents from the ancient world to the modern, where ‘Gnostic’ is broadly conceived as a reference to special direct knowledge of the divine, which either transcends or transgresses conventional religious knowledge. It aims to publish academic papers on: the emergence of the Gnostic, in its many different historical and local cultural contexts; the Gnostic strands that persisted in the middle ages; and modern interpretations of Gnosticism – with the goal of establishing cross-cultural and trans-historical conversations, together with more localized historical analyses.

The corpus of Gnostic materials includes (but is not restricted to) testimonies from outsiders as well as insider literature such as the Nag Hammadi collection, the Hermetica, Neoplatonic texts, the Pistis Sophia, the books of Jeu, the Berlin and Tchacos codices, Manichaean documents, Mandaean scriptures, and contemporary Gnostic fiction/film and ‘revealed’ literature. The journal will publish the best of traditional historical and comparative scholarship while also featuring newer approaches that have received less attention in the established literature, such as cognitive science, cognitive linguistics, social memory, psychology, ethnography, sociology, and literary theory.

Call for articles: Polymnia

 

Next issue of Polymnia, an international electronic journal on mythography, will be published in December 2018.

Polymnia is peer-reviewed and welcomes articles which offer an interdisciplinary and diachronic discussion and debate about mythographical texts in Antiquity, in the Middles Ages, and in the Renaissance. This research field, demarcated by clear historical and cultural boundaries, is therefore distinct from the modern and contemporary analysis of myths.

You can find previous issues of Polymnia on line at :

https://polymnia-revue.univ-lille3.fr/eng/index.php/this-journal/#

Articles should be sent until the end of June 2018 to both editors, Charles Delattre (charles.delattre@univ-lille3.fr) and Jacqueline Fabre-Serris (jacqueline.fabre-serris@wanadoo.fr), and will be submitted immediately to international reviewers. All submissions for publication are refereed anonymously by two reviewers; in the event of differing assessments, a third referee will be sollicited.

The issues of the journal are annual and multilingual. Each article, written in the language of its author, should be accompanied by a brief abstract and a list of keywords (See the section Rules for publications on Internet for additional details).

Polymnia is linked to the research network “Polymnia”, that has been working since 1999 on mythographic tradition from Antiquity to the 17th century in Europe (http://polymnia.recherche.univ-lille3.fr/)

The members of the editorial board are : Minerva Alganza (Universidad de Grenada), Consuelo Alvarez (Universidad de Murcia), Jacques Boulogne (Université de Lille), David Bouvier (Université de Lausanne), Franck Coulson (Ohio State University), Maria-Luisa Delvigo (Università di Udine), Robert Fowler (Bristol University), Françoise Graziani (Université de Corse), Greta Hawes (Australian National University), Giorgio Ierano (Università diTrento), François Lissarrague (EHESS), Jordi Pamias (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona), Ezio Pellizer (Università di Trieste), Scott Smith (University of New Hampshire), Séverine Clément-Tarantino (Université de Lille), Jean-Yves Tilliette (Université de Genève), Stephen Trzaskoma (University of New Hampshire), Arnaud Zucker (Université de Nice).

QUAESTIO 17 (2017)
 Reality and its Concepts. Is there such a thing as « Baroque Philosophy »?
 

Quaestio is dedicated to the reconstruction of the history of important concepts and themes of the metaphysical tradition. It aims at examining their ancient or medieval origins and their reception, transformation or rejection in modern and contemporary philosophy. The main focus is the transition from medieval philosophy to the early modern period and covers numerous concepts (like cause, substance…) as well as the discussion of other disciplines at the boundaries of metaphysics itself.
