Multidisciplinary Perspectives from the Ancient to the Early Modern World
Elements, Nature, Environment: Multidisciplinary Perspectives from the Ancient to the Early Modern World publishes high-quality scholarship that explores the relationship between the elements and the environment, covering the periods from antiquity to early modern. The series encourages cutting-edge research with a wide range of interdisciplinary approaches in the fields of including (but not limited to) history of science, philosophy, linguistics, literature, history, art history, and eco-criticism, ranging from Northern Europe and the Mediterranean world to Africa and the Middle East, India, Japan, China, and other regions.

Contributions may cover the areas of history of the elements and elemental theory; environment, cosmology, and climate; well-being and the human body alongside food, nutrition, diets, herbs as well as its relevance for pharmacology and medicine; disasters and epidemics; animal lore, agriculture, and landscapes; maps and diagrams; weather, meteorology, and religion. These and other related themes could be explored either diachronically or by focusing on any specific time period between antiquity and early modern. The series promotes collaborative and comparative analysis of textual or visual sources from different traditions and historical periods, and maps points of intersection alongside differences in the way in which various civilisations understood their place within nature and the environment around them. Inter-, multi-, and cross-disciplinary approaches are particularly welcomed.

The series operates with a variety of formats, from monographs and edited thematic collections to critical editions and translations into English.
Der vorliegende Band widmet sich der Untersuchung des Briefverkehrs zwischen Eltern und ihren Kindern, wie er uns auf Papyrus und Ostraka aus dem 1. bis 3. Jh. n.Chr. erhalten ist. Im Mittelpunkt der vorliegenden Studie steht die Ausdrucksweise der Emotionen, die charakteristisch für diese Korrespondenz ist. Dabei wird gezeigt, wie Solidarität und Konflikte zwischen Generationen in diesen Briefen zum Ausdruck kommen. Zugleich werden soziokulturelle Aspekte des römischen Ägyptens, welche im Hintergrund der Eltern-Kind-Beziehung stehen, berücksichtigt. In einigen Fällen werden neue Ergänzungsvorschläge sowie Neulesungen und damit innovative Interpretationen der oft nur fragmentarisch erhaltenen Briefe vorgelegt.
