Brill Studies in Greek and Roman Epigraphy is a peer-reviewed book series, publishing monographs and collected volumes on all aspects of Greek and Roman inscriptions. These include first editions of new and significant inscriptions, new editions of previously published and important inscriptions, with significant new readings and analysis as well as studies that deal with ‘practical matters’ of epigraphy, from lettering and methods of inscribing, to formulae used by civic bodies, to methods of recording and editing texts and ‘supports’. In addition, it welcomes volumes of historical studies that make significant use of inscriptions and occasionally conference proceedings.

The series published an average of one volume per year over the last 5 years.
This volume focuses on Christianity in Attica and its metropolis, Athens, from Paul’s initial visit in the first century up to the closing of the philosophical schools under the reign of Justinian I in the sixth century. Underscoring the relevance of epigraphic resources and the importance of methodological sophistication in analysing especially archaeological evidence, it readdresses many questions on the basis of a larger body of evidence and aims to combine literary, epigraphic, and archaeological evidence in order to create the outlines of a narrative of the rise and development of Christianity in the area. It is the first interdisciplinary study on the local history of Christianity in the area.

Recent decades have seen the publication of several papyri devoted to ancient epigram, one of the most successful poetic forms of antiquity. Of these the most enigmatic is the Yale papyrus codex; its date, authorship and content have been vigorously debated. The codex allows us a glimpse of the wealth of material now lost to us and enriches our perception of the genre’s dynamism, its thematic richness, and the process of anthologisation and dissemination. This volume offers the first collection of essays by experts in the genre dedicated to this fascinating and elusive text of the imperial period.

Documentary texts are vital to our understanding of many aspects of the ancient world, such as its administration, education, and economy. The value of these texts goes even further however: being autographs, they directly testify to ancient communication practices, a field of study which so far has remained underexplored. In this volume, specialists in the field engage with a broad range of documentary sources. They discuss not only how various modes of communication, such as language, handwriting, and lay-out, are employed in specific contexts of writing, but also how these different modes are interrelated. Building on insights from contemporary social-semiotic theory, the volume makes a case for the establishment of historical social semiotics as a discipline.

Editor / Translator:
يستعرض كتاب العمارة القديمة في سوريا (جبل سمعان)، من تأليف هوارد كروسبي باتلر وترجمة عائشة موسى، 24 موقعًا أثريًا في شمال سوريا. ويُسلِّط كل موقعٍ منها الضوء على اكتشافات جديدة تقف شاهدةً على عظمة الحضارات التي امتزجت بين جنباتها، مخلفةً وراءها إرثًا سرمديًا لا ينسى.
وتأتي قلعة القديس سمعان العمودي في طليعة هذه المواقع وتعد أكثرها شهرة، وبقيت في صدارة العمارة الكاتدرائية حتى بناء آيا صوفيا، كما بشَّرت بالتطور العمراني الديني اللاحق في كل من القسطنطينية وأوروبا.
وثمة مخططات ومقاطع عرضية وصور توضح جميع هذه المعالم، وتعمل على توثيق أبنيتها وتفاصيلها وتخليد هذا الكنز الذي لا يقدَّر بثمن للأجيال القادمة.
