The Gospel of Peter

Introduction, Critical Edition and Commentary

Series:

Paul Foster

Since its discovery in 1886/87 there has been no full-scale English-language treatment of the Gospel of Peter. This book rectifies that gap in scholarship by discussing a range of introductory issues and debates in contemporary scholarship, providing a new critical edition of the text and a comprehensive commentary. New arguments are brought forward for the dependence of the Gospel of Peter upon the synoptic gospels. The theological perspectives of the text are seen as reflecting second-century popular Christian thought. This passion account is viewed as a highly significant window into the way later generations of Christians received and rewrote traditions concerning Jesus.

Angelo Poliziano's Lamia

Text, Translation, and Introductory Studies

Series:

Angelo Poliziano

Edited by Christopher Celenza

In 1492, Angelo Poliziano published his Lamia, a praelectio, or opening oration to a course he would teach that academic year on Aristotle’s Prior Analytics at the Florentine university. Having heard murmurings that he was not philosopher enough to teach the Aristotelian text, Poliziano strikes back, offering in effect a fable-tinted history of philosophy. More than a repudiation of local gossip, the text represents a rethinking of the mission of philosophy. This volume offers the first English translation, an edition of the Latin text, and four studies that set this rich example of humanist Latin writing in context.

Ammianus Marcellinus Online

Philological and Historical Commentary to Ammianus Marcellinus' Res Gestae

Jan den Boeft, Daniël den Hengst, Hans C. Teitler and Jan Willem Drijvers

Ammianus Marcellinus (4th century CE) was a Roman soldier, historian and author of Res Gestae, a major historical work on the history of Rome from the period of Emperor Nerva (96 CE) to the death of Emperor Valens (378 CE). Res Gestae originally consisted of thirty-one books, although the first thirteen books have been lost. The surviving eighteen books (books 14-31) cover the period from 353 to 378.

After the diligent work of P. de Jonge, who wrote commentaries on books 14-19 from the 1930s till the 1980s, J. den Boeft, D. den Hengst, H.C. Teitler and, starting 1995, J.W. Drijvers have steadily worked on the commentaries to the remaining books 20-31 of Res Gestae. Their collaborative work has received much praise in the international scholarly world, and has been completed in 2018. Ammianus Marcellinus Online includes the commentaries to books 14-31 of Res Gestae as well as two full text editions in Latin on which the commentaries are based (Clark, 1910 and Seyfarth, 1978).

Ammianus Marcellinus Online is the digital version of the standard and the only complete commentary on Res Gestae. It is of great importance to scholars in Roman history, Latin philology, military history and historiography in general.

  • Review
    "A monumental work of scholarship that no historian of the late fourth century can afford to ignore. [...] One could hardly expect more of any commentary."
