[Ancient Architecture in Syria: The ͑Alā and Ḳaṣr Ibn Wardân]
Editor / Translator:
العلا وقصر ابن وردان من تأليف باتلر وترجمة عائشة موسى يسلط الضوء على (19) موقعًا أثريًا في المنطقة الشمالية من وسط سوريا. ويعد قصر ابن وردان تحفة عمرانية منقطعة النظير تنفرد بين جميع المواقع الأثرية في شمال سوريا بجمالها الأخَّاذ وتنوعها المذهل. وقد بدت مساقطه الأفقية وطرز عمارته ومواد بنائه مماثلة إلى حدٍ كبير لتلك المتَّبعة في تشييد الصروح الإمبراطورية التي اشتهرت في القسطنطينية خلال عهد الإمبراطور جاستينيان.
وتتباهى المنطقة بأكملها بكثرة مبانيها الأثرية التي تمثل فنونًا معماريةً متنوعةً تجسدت في نمطٍ فريدٍ اختصت به سوريا دون غيرها من البلدان؛ إذ لا يوجد في أي مكان آخر في العالم مثل هذا الغنى في أوابده الأثرية الدينية والعسكرية والسكنية والجنائزية والتي تفتح الباب واسعًا أمام كل راغبٍ في دراستها وكشف خفاياها.


The ͑Alā and Ḳaṣr Ibn Wardân, written by Butler and translated by Aisha Moussa, covers (19) ancient sites in Northern Central Syria. Ḳaṣr Ibn Wardân is the most prominent architectural masterpiece which is unmatched in beauty and diversity of style among all ancient ruins in Northern Syria. It was built on a ground plan, in a style, and of material similar to those employed in the imperial edifices of Constantinople during the reign of Justinian.
The whole area boasts its great body of buildings representing every variety of architecture, in a style which is peculiar to the country. No where else are there such abundant remains of the religious, military, domestic and funerary architecture open for study and research activities.
A Regional Study of Inscriptions: towards a Social and Legal Framework
Can we study the social and legal practices related to families in an ancient society even in the absence of relevant literary and legal sources? In Lycia, thanks to our rich corpus of inscriptions, and the regional funerary epigraphic habit, we can. This book brings together for the first time the full range of Lycian epigraphic evidence, examines it in a systematic way, and investigates three central elements of familial life in the Hellenistic and Roman periods: marriage, children, and inheritance practices; in doing so it briefly touches on a number of prosopographical, demographic, and anthropological questions. The book makes an innovative contribution not only to the history of Lycia but also to the wider study of ancient families.
Philodems „Geschichte der Akademie“ ist eine philosophiegeschichtlich sehr bedeutsame Schrift, welche viele exklusive Nachrichten über Platon und die Entwicklung der Akademie unter seinen Nachfolgern bewahrt hat. Dieser sogenannte Index Academicorum ist im Wesentlichen nur als Entwurfsversion in einem Herkulanischen Papyrus überliefert, der mittels innovativer Hightech-Bildgebungsverfahren und papyrologischer Methoden neugelesen und ediert wurde. Im Vergleich zu früheren Ausgaben steht nun ein geradezu dramatisch veränderter Text, was etliche neue, harte Fakten zu diversen Akademikern impliziert. Wir erhalten durch die Neuausgabe und ihre Kontextualisierung unverhoffte Einblicke von interdisziplinärer Tragweite in antike Philosophie, Biographie, Literatur sowie in den Entstehungsprozess von Büchern.

Philodemus’ History of the Academy represents a valuable treatise on Greek philosophical schools containing much unique information on Plato and on the development of the Academy under his successors. The so called Index Academicorum is a draft version preserved in a Herculaneum papyrus, which has been reread and reedited on the basis of innovative papyrological criteria and pioneering imaging techniques. The text is now very different from former editions and reveals countless new facts on various Academic philosophers. The edition and the commentary provide new insights of interdisciplinary relevance into ancient philosophy, biography, literature and the ancient process of writing a book.
The essays in this volume, offered to dr. Jenny Read-Heimerdinger on the occasion of her 70th birthday, cover subjects in New Testament textual criticism that are central to her research. In particular, the volume contains text critical studies of the four Gospels, the book of the Acts of the Apostles, the early testimony of New Testament Greek and Coptic manuscripts and scribal tendencies in the first centuries, and linguistic approaches to textual criticism.
