Studies in Honor of Ann Macy Roth
Throughout her career, Ann Macy Roth has regularly returned to well-known ancient Egyptian material and visual culture and shed new light on it by employing different approaches and methodologies. In this way, her research has led to new interpretations and readings of ancient Egyptian beliefs and practices while illustrating the importance of and need for continual questioning and re-examination within Egyptology. This volume brings together papers from around the world that follow her tradition of rethinking, reassessing, and innovating. It is intended to honour Roth’s significant career as a scholar, mentor, and teacher and to celebrate and continue her dedication to analyzing ancient Egypt from novel perspectives.
[Kitāb Ṭayf al-Khayāl: A New Edition of Ibn Dāniyāl's Work on Life in Middle Ages Cairo]
ينقلنا كتاب طيف الخيال إلى عالم سحري لم يخطر على بالنا وجوده قط: عالم القاهرة السري في القرون الوسطى. حيث يقدم لنا سردية تاريخية مغايرة تمامًا للتاريخ الرسمي المعتاد الذي يهيمن عليه السلاطين والأمراء والعلماء والأكابر ، ليحتل العامة البسطاء صدارة المشهد، وعبر بابات ابن دنيال يمكننا التلصص على تفاصيل حياتهم ومعتقداتهم، والطريقة التي رأوا بها حكامهم، ومساخرهم التي لا حد لها، فضلًا عن ألوان المتع السريّة التي مارسوها بشراهة منقطعة النظير. نُشرت بابات ابن دانيال عدة مرات من قبل، في نشرات منقوصة وغير مشروحة، حيث تحرّج المحققون من إيراد مقاطع كاملة من البابات بحجة إسرافها في البذاءة وعدم ملاءمتها للذوق العام! ولأول مرّة بعد أكثر من قرن منذ اكتشاف جورج جاكوب لمخطوطات الكتاب يتم نشر مسرحيات الظل الثلاث لابن دانيال كاملة بلا حذف في طبعة نقدية مميزة معتنى بها ،تشتمل على شروح وكشافات تحليلية فريدة . تُبرز أهميتها وتُمهد الطريق أمام الباحثين لتقديم مزيد من الدراسات العلمية عن بابات ابن دانيال بالغة الثراء.

Kitāb Ṭayf al-Khayāl transports us to a magical world previously unknown to us: the secret Cairo in the Middle Ages. It presents an entirely different historical narrative from the conventional history dominated by sultans, princes, scholars, and elites. Instead, it brings the common people, the ordinary, to the forefront. Through the writings of Ibn Dāniyāl, we get a glimpse into the details of their lives, beliefs, how they perceived their rulers, and the boundless extravagances they indulged in, along with the secretive pleasures they passionately pursued. Babat Ibn Daniyal has been published multiple times before, in incomplete and unexplained editions, with investigators hesitating to include complete sections, citing their explicit content and perceived impropriety
The church annexes of late antique Cyprus were bustling places of industry, producing olive oil, flour, bread, ceramics, and metal products. From its earliest centuries, the church was an economic player, participating in agricultural and artisanal production.
More than a Church brings together architecture, ceramics, numismatics, landscape archaeology, and unpublished excavation material, alongside consideration of Cyprus’s dynamic and prosperous 4th–10th-century history. Keane offers a rich picture of the association between sacred buildings and agricultural and industrial facilities—comprehensively presenting, for the first time, the church’s economic role and impact in late antique Cyprus.
