Roger Bagnall expertise in early Christian Egypt is refreshing as his compendium, that takes the reader across four centuries 11. August 2014
Von Didaskalex - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
"This is an excellent collection of essays, each of which deserves much more comment than can be reasonably expected here."--BCMR

This is an admirable compendium of Byzantine Egypt history, offering a lucid and rational analysis of topics on its society, culture, religious life, art and economy, during the 4th to the 7th CE. The essays portray Egypt within its mediaeval Mediterranean world to the emergence of its Coptic identity, as a distinctive tradition of literary and religious culture.

The distinguished scholarly contributors represent two generation of Coptologists who established their expertise with the Chenoboskion Coptic Gnostic Library, Nag-Hamady, led by Stephen Emmel and James Goehring. Within the second generation are few amazing experts in various facets of the Copto-Byzantine Culture, Environment/ society, and Church/ Monasticism.

Roger Bagnall expertise in early Christian Egypt is refreshing as his introduction, that takes the reader across four centuries of an era that covered long struggles over doctrine and ecclesiastic power in Byzantium. He wrote an informing brief review, without overlooking the megalopolice of Alexandria. Its role over Mediterranean cities, and heroic defense Athanasius, Cyril's theology, by or John Philoponus achievements.

Alan Cameron starts Part I on culture, with 'Poets and Pagans', refreshing the memory of some Coptic celebrities in Nonnus, while he takes the analysis of a massive collection on a lonely but beautiful subject. He observes that, "The mere fact that we can name actually so many, has often been thought to imply an organized pagan opposition." He adds, "The fact that they were an outlawed minority, in a Christian world, no doubt created certain solidarity."

In "Philosophy in its social content," Leslie MacCoull calls on two Aristotle commentators, Simplicus and the 'Miaphysite John Philoponus' writing, "Philosophy was not just a curriculum but an enacted way of life." She argues particularly for Philoponus. Her usage of theological terms proves her category, as she explores his writings, "Three-act drama" of his break with Aristotle,'De anima', in defense contra Chalcedon, and 'De Opificio Mundi'.

Coptic Architecture, a favorite subject of mine, is articulated by Peter Grossmann, to my joy, as he links late antiquety Egypt to the Fifth century great basilica of St. Menas. He writes, "Throughout Egypt, the predominant church type was three or five aisled basillica with the main axis pointing east-west. An apse was positioned at the narrow east end, flanked in both sides, by at least two sides chambers (pastophoria)," in addition to many church plot plans (blue prints).
