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.
Judaism and Spatiality in Hasmonean and Herodian Galilee
Author:
We understand the world around us in terms of built spaces. Such spaces are shaped by human activity, and in turn, affect how people live. Through an analysis of archaeological and textual evidence from the beginnings of Hasmonean influence in Galilee, until the outbreak of the First Jewish War against Rome, this book explores how Judaism was socially expressed: bodily, communally, and regionally. Within each expression, certain aspects of Jewish identity operate, these being purity conceptions, communal gatherings, and Galilee's relationship with the Hasmoneans, Jerusalem, and the Temple in its final days.

Abstract

This book examines the connection between ancient Galilean perceptions of space and religious identity by drawing on literary and archaeological evidence from the 2nd century BCE to the 1st century CE. My spatial reconstruction in Galilee is informed by the ideas and contributions of spatial theorists, and is divided into three levels of spatial analysis: bodily, communal, and regional.

The first level, bodily space, examines ancient Jewish conceptions of purity, in order to address how religion and ritual were expressed in everyday life in Galilee. These chapters (2 and 3) discuss elements of Galilean material culture which relate to the bodily expression of purity conceptions, and counterpart texts which provide a window into a diverse and complex culture of purity in ancient Judaism. Chapters 3 and 4 discuss communal space, documenting the development of public spaces in Galilee and in ancient Judaism more generally. Communal space as explored in this book concerns purpose-built structures which could facilitate a variety of activities and practices. The third level, regional space, examines how Galilee can be conceived of as a distinct region in the Levant. In particular, I focus on the relations between Galilee and Jerusalem, principally economic and religious ties to the Hasmonean dynasty, which ruled over the southern Levant during the 2nd and 1st centuries BCE. This picks up the discussion of the space of Galilee from the introductory chapter, wherein the textual attestation of Galilee was first discussed.

This book utilises a variety of additional sources that document, and methodologies that have been applied to the study of, Greco-Roman history, archaeology and literature. Furthermore, it uses insights from spatial theory to creatively imagine the spaces that were generated in ancient Galilee. The book considers discussions about identity formation and delineation, especially with respect to how groups are reconstructed through texts and archaeological materials. This volume offers insights towards an understanding of identity and its relation to ancient materials, whilst moving away from essentialist definitions of identity.
