Staging death : funerary performance, architecture and landscape in the Aegean
edited by Anastasia Dakouri-Hild and Michael J. Boyd
Berlin : De Gruyter, [2016]
"Places are social, lived, ideational landscapes constructed by people as they inhabit their natural and built environment. An 'archaeology of place' attempts to move beyond the understanding of the landscape as inert background or static fossil of human behaviour. From a specifically mortuary perspective, this approach entails a focus on the inherently mutable, transient and performative qualities of 'deathscapes': how they are remembered, obliterated, forgotten, reworked, or revisited over time. Despite latent interest in this line of enquiry, few studies have explored the topic explicitly in Aegean archaeology. This book aims to identify ways in which to think about the deathscape as a cross between landscapes, tombs, bodies, and identities, supplementing and expanding upon well explored themes in the field (e.g. tombs as vehicles for the legitimization of power; funerary landscapes as arenas of social and political competition). The volume recasts a wealth of knowledge about Aegean mortuary cultures against a theoretical background, bringing the field up to date with recent developments in the archaeology of place"--Publisher's website.

Graeco-Roman archives from the Fayum
by Katelijn Vandorpe, Willy Clarysse and Herbert Verreth ; with contributions by Guiseppina Azzarello, Yanne Broux, Marie-Pierre Chaufray, W. Graham Claytor, Lucia Crisuolo, Birgit Feucht, Karolien Geens, Francisca A.J. Hoogendijk, Ruben Smolders, Silke Vanbeselaere, Bart Van Beek, Korneel Van Lommel, Sofie Waebens
Leuven, Belgium : Peeters, 2015
The Fayum is a large depression in the western desert of Egypt, receiving its water directly from the Nile. In the early Ptolemaic period the agricultural area expanded a great deal, new villages were founded and many Greeks settled here. When villages on the outskirts were abandoned about AD 300-400, houses and cemeteries remained intact for centuries. Here were found thousands of papyri, ostraca (potsherds) and hundreds of mummy portraits, which have made the area famous among classicists and art historians alike. Most papyri and ostraca are now scattered over collections all over the world. The sixth volume of Collectanea Hellenistica presents 145 reconstructed archives originating from this region, including private, professional, official and temple archives both in Greek and in native Demotic.

Contemporary perspectives on C.S. Lewis' The Abolition of man : history, philosophy, education, and science
edited by Tim Mosteller and Gayne John Anacker
London ; Bloomsbury Academic, an imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, 2017
"Beginning with a clear account of the historical setting for The Abolition of Man and its place within C.S. Lewis' corpus of writing, Contemporary Perspectives on C.S. Lewis' The Abolition of Man: History, Philosophy, Education and Science assesses and appraises Lewis' seminal lectures, providing a thorough analysis of the themes and subjects that are raised. Chapters focus on the major areas of thought including: philosophy, natural law, education, literature, politics, theology, science, biotechnology and the connection between the Ransom Trilogy. Drawing on Lewis' central ideas, they tackle questions such as, is The Abolition of Man hostile to scientific inquiry? Does Lewis provide an adequate rational defense of natural moral law? Do the lectures address the philosophical questions of the 21st century as Lewis sought to provide answers to philosophical questions of the 20th century? Dealing with themes across multiple areas of human inquiry, the authors bring expertise from their respective fields to bear on the core issues raised in Lewis' lectures. The result is an interdisciplinary approach that offers the first comprehensive scholarly treatment of The Abolition of Man, one of the most debated of Lewis' works."--Provided by publisher.

Injury and trauma in bioarchaeology : interpreting violence in past lives
Redfern, Rebecca, author
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2017
Foreword / Debra L. Martin -- Introduction -- Approaches to understanding and interpreting violence in the past -- Violent behaviour in humans and human societies -- Environmental factors and violence -- Injury in life course perspective -- Violent happenings : intentional injury patterns -- Living with the consequences of injury -- Conclusions.

"The remains of past people are a testament to their lived experiences and of the environment in which they lived. Synthesising the latest research, this book critically examines the sources of evidence used to understand and interpret violence in bioarchaeology, exploring the significant light such evidence can shed on past hierarchies, gender roles and life courses. The text draws on a diverse range of social and clinical science research to investigate violence and trauma in the archaeological record, focussing on human remains. It examines injury patterns in different groups as well as the biological, psychological and cultural factors that make us behave violently, how our living environment influences injury and violence, the models used to identify and interpret violence in the past, and how violence is used as a social tool. Drawing on a range of case studies, Redfern explores new research directions that will contribute to nuanced interpretations of past lives"--

Greece reinvented : transformations of Byzantine Hellenism in Renaissance Italy
Lamers, Han, author
Leiden : Brill, [2015]
Introduction -- A Hellenic alternative : the emergence of Greekness in Byzantium -- Making the best of it : the negotiation of Greekness in Italy -- Freedom and community : the secular Greekness of Cardinal Bessarion -- The Greek tradition as a combat zone : Hellenocentrism in the work of George Trapezuntius of Crete -- Greekness as cultural common ground : Ianus Lascaris' attempt at Greco-Latin ecumenism -- Greekness without Greece : Michele Tarcaniota Marullo and Manilio Cabacio Rallo -- The territorialisation of Hellenism : Giovanni Gemisto's vision of the Greek world -- Conclusion : Greece reinvented.

"In Greece Reinvented Han Lamers explores the transformations of Byzantine Hellenism in Renaissance Italy. Relinquishing their traditional Roman inheritance, the Byzantine intelligentsia in Italy generally portrayed themselves as 'children of the Hellenes'. On the basis of sources in Greek, Latin, and Italian, and at the crossroads of cultural, literary, and intellectual history, Greece Reinvented shows in what ways Greek exiles such as Bessarion, George Trapezuntius, Ianus Lascaris, Michele Marullo, and others redefined what it meant to be Greek in the Italian diaspora. Placing their renewed 'Greekness' in the context of the cultural exchange between Greeks and Latins, Greece Reinvented reveals the cultural dynamics behind the much-studied transfer of Greek learning from Byzantium to the Latin West"--
