[1]. CONVEGNO: “LIVRES ET CONFESSIONS CHRETIENNES ORIENTALES. HISTOIRE CONNECTEE ENTRE EMPIRE OTTOMAN, MONDE SLAVE ET OCCIDENT (XVIE-XVIIIE SIECLES)” (ROMA, 15-16.12.2016)

Da: Arianna D’Ottone (arianna.dottone@uniroma1.it)

Les Eglises et communautes chretiennes orientales connaissent toutes a’ des degres divers et selon des temporalites propres des processus semblables de definitions dogmatiques, de renforcement institutionnel, et d’homogeneisation culturelle, dont l’observation alimente le debat sur la “confessionnalisation”. Mais la connaissance des langues, la specialisation par aires culturelles, voire par confessions, ou encore un cloisonnement par traditions nationales, n’ont pas permis jusqu’alors de connecter ensemble ces differentes aires. Il s’agit desormais d’examiner les circulations entre les espaces et les echanges entre les communautes, selon des modalites complexes, dont la mise a’ jour permet de sortir d’une problematique reduite a’ une confrontation Ouest/Est.
Ces journees d’etudes se concentreront sur les liens entre la production livresque et la definition des confessions chretiennes. L’introduction de l’imprimerie dans ces differentes aires culturelles provoque des transformations des rapports entre oralite’ et usages de l’ecrit, de la lecture et de l’ecriture. L’essor de l’offre imprimee suscite une nouvelle demande, qui entraine une augmentation de la production manuscrite.
Les lecteurs orientaux sont vises par la propagande catholique et protestante en langues orientales. Des le XVIe siecle, des chretiens orientaux collaborent le plus souvent aux ateliers d’imprimeries occidentaux et participent activement aux reseaux de diffusion de ces livres. Sur place, des imprimeries se developpent soutenues financierement par des autorites civiles et/ou ecclesiastiques, souvent motivees par un projet politique ou religieux. Un centre, comme Iasi en Moldavie, edite grace au soutien des voivodes d’importants livres en grec et en arabe qui circulent largement. Les pouvoirs politiques et religieux peuvent redouter egalement certains ouvrages, decidant leur censure voire leur destruction.
Les genres sont varies: ouvrages de piete’, hagiographies, catechismes, Ecritures, historiographie, editions de textes scientifiques, traites de theologie etc. Ils peuvent etre revelateurs des methodes humanistes, de l'”invention” de traditions, des aspirations a’ la reforme, des dynamiques d’uniformisation, des processus de disciplinement et des controverses au cours desquelles s’inventent les identites confessionnelles. Dans cette perspective, l’etude du livre liturgique est centrale: alors que Rome ambitionne de fournir des rituels “corriges” aux Orientaux, les imprimes grecs venitiens connaissent une large diffusion et inspirent divers projets de reforme de Moscou a’ Alep a’ partir du XVIIe siecle. L’usage de telle edition ou tel manuscrit pose aussi la question de la concurrence entre les rites des Orientaux unis et les Typika orthodoxes.
L’etude des bibliotheques, notamment monastiques, est une cle’ d’entree pour analyser les choix qui president au rassemblement d’une collection et les usages des livres, en particulier l’enseignement.
De nombreux ouvrages produits et diffuses sont des traductions (ou des adaptations), dont on ne peut faire l’economie de l’etude, en s’interessant aux traducteurs, aux intentions des commanditaires, a’ l’adaptation des textes. L’examen de l’objet-livre, notamment son format, fournit des renseignements sur les intentions du commanditaire, le savoir-faire du fabricant, et le public vise’. Le choix des langues touche aussi aux sentiments d’appartenances confessionnelles, par la reflexion sur une langue de reference ou par l’articulation entre une langue “sacree” et une langue vernaculaire (slavon/grec ou roumain etc., syriaque/arabe, grec/arabe, grec “vulgaire” demotique/grec antique ou liturgique, arabe dialectal/litteral etc.; choix d’une autre ecriture telle le syriaque pour ecrire l’arabe dit “garshuni” etc.). Un nouveau savoir linguistique (grammaires, dictionnaires, manuels etc.) est lie’ aux “reformes” des Eglises.
L’arc chronologique inclut le XIXe siecle, une periode de mutations politiques et religieuses profondes a’ l’age des nationalismes. La production livresque connait une croissance exponentielle et la part du livre non religieux s’accroit considerablement. L’enseignement se developpe dans un contexte de concurrence scolaire. Des lors quel role tient le livre dans la confessionnalisation?

[4]. CONFERENCE HELD BY FRANCESCA DELL’ACQUA: “MARY AND THE MAGNIFICAT: THE EARLIEST MONUMENTAL EXAMPLE?” (BIRMINGHAM, 12.01.2017)

Da: Aisbnews (aisbnews@gmail.com)

Centre for Byzantine, Ottoman and Modern Greek Studies, University of Birmingham
Thu 12 Jan
Mary and the Magnificat: the earliest monumental example?
Francesca Dell’Acqua (Birmingham)
5.15pm, Whitting Room (Arts, 4th floor)

This talk is aimed at illustrating how the literary image of Mary taken up to Heaven and celebrated with the Magnificat hymn, crafted by early iconophile authors in the East, was received a few decades later in the West by Ambrosius Autpertus (+ 784) and was eventually translated in visual imagery in his own monastery (824-42). Comparable eastern figural images are found in Byzantine psalters dating to the late ninth-early tenth centuries, while the earliest extant monumental depiction is on the eastern arch of the Hagia Sophia (1341-91). This talk will try on the one hand to reconstruct the modalities of circulation of theological concepts between East and West in the period of the “image struggle”; on the other, the development of the figural image of the Adsumpta, perhaps as a consequence of the controversy over sacred images.

Dr. Mag. Emilio BONFIGLIO
Oxford / Wien
“Armenian Manuscripts from the Invention of the Alphabet to the Modern Era: An Illustrated History”

The literary experience of the Armenian people begins in the first decade of the 5th century, when an Armenian script is created thanks to the joint efforts of Mesrop Mastoc and Bishop Sahak I Part’ew. From this moment, an imposing translation activity from Syrian and Greek takes place, followed by the first original literary works written directly in Armenian. The Late Antiquity period, the Middle Ages, and the early Modern Times see an enormous production of literature in Armenian, which is testified by the ca. 30.000 Armenian manuscripts that are still extant nowadays. In spite of its recognized historical, literary, and artistic value, Armenian manuscript culture remains often less known to the public at large. The lecture intends to offer an overview of the manuscript tradition in the Armenian culture, focusing on the centers of production of the manuscripts, codicology, a brief outline of the development of the Armenian script, the decoration of the manuscripts, and other related matters. In the final section, the speaker will present a project for a digital handbook of Armenian codicology and paleography, which is currently being prepared at the Bodleian Library in Oxford.

CHRISTOS PASCHON. PASSIONSSPIEL ODER CHRISTLICHE TRAGOEDIE?
von Walter Puchner (Athen/Wien)

Dienstag, 24. Jaenner 2017, 17 Uhr
Trautsongasse 6/6, 1080 Wien

Das byzantinische Passionspoem “Christos paschon” ist mit ueber 2.600 Versen der umfangreichste erhaltene dialogische cento. Thema ist die Passionsgeschichte vom Judasverrat bis zur Erscheinung Christi vor den Aposteln (Unglaeubiger Thomas), dargestellt unter Rueckgriff auf Passionsszenen aus der Bibel und apokryphen Quellen sowie Zitaten aus antiken Tragoedien (Euripides, Aischylos), die ein Drittel des Umfangs ausmachen. Walter Puchner analysiert dieses Werk, das lange Zeit auf das 4./5. Jahrhundert datiert und meist Gregor von Nazianz zugeschrieben wurde, aus theaterwissenschaftlicher Perspektive, geht der Frage nach, worum es sich bei “Christos paschon” eigentlich handelt, und gewinnt daraus schlagkraeftige Argumente fuer eine Datierung in 11./12. Jahrhundert.

Da: Vera von Falkenhausen (verafalk@libero.it)

CeMoG Berlin
“Durch das Auge der Kamera”: Griechenland, die Saloniki-Front und der 1. Weltkrieg

Als im Sommer 1914 in Europa der Krieg ausbrach, gehoerte das griechische Koenigreich zu den Staaten Europas, die sich zunaechst als politisch neutral erklaerten. Doch die Frage eines moeglichen Kriegseintritts entwickelte sich im weiteren Fortgang des Krieges zu einem tiefgreifenden innenpolitischen Konflikt zwischen dem griechischen Ministerpraesident Venizelos, der einen Kriegseintritt auf die Seite der Alliierten forderte, und dem griechischen Koenig Konstantin, der sich fuer eine die Beibehaltung des neutralen Kurses bzw. eine Beteiligung auf der Seite der Mittelmaechte einsetzte. Obwohl das Land auch weiterhin offiziell neutral blieb, standen sich schon bald im heutigen griechisch‐mazedonisch‐bulgarischen Grenzgebiet Truppen der Entente und der Mittelmaechte gegenueber. Die Geschichte dieser sogenannten “Saloniki‐ oder Mazedonienfront” und die Folgen fuer das Koenigreich Griechenland gehoeren zu den nur wenig beachteten, fast vergessenen Nebenschauplaetzen des 1. Weltkriegs. Dieser Vortrag betrachtet die Geschichte Griechenlands im 1. Weltkrieg “durch das Auge der Kamera” und versucht, sich der Thematik ueber vornehmlich visuelle Quellen anzunehmen. Dabei sollen vor allem transnationale Entwicklungen in den Blick genommen werden, die im Fokus des neu entwickelten Forschungsprojektes zur Geschichte Suedosteuropas im 1. Weltkriegs stehen.

[10]. TAGUNG: “DIE MILITARISIERUNG DER HEILIGEN IN VORMODERNE UND MODERNE” (MUENSTER, 01-02.02.2017)

Bewerbungsschluss

Martialische Terminologie und kaempferisches Auftreten sind in den christlichen heiligen Schriften mannigfaltig beschrieben, materialisiert hat sich das Militaerische aber kaum. Selbst Christus wird selten als Soldat (Christus miles) dargestellt. Christliche Soldaten bekamen Probleme, wenn sie in Kampfhandlungen toeteten und dann nicht zur Kommunion durften. Schwerer wog allerdings ihre Weigerung, dem roemischen vergoettlichten Kaiser zu opfern, was zahlreiche Maertyrertode verursachte.

Erzaehlungen ueber diese Blutzeugen entstanden rasch, aber ihre urspruengliche kriegerische Profession spielte nur eine untergeordnete Rolle. Das aenderte sich in der spaetroemischen und fruehmittelalterlichen Zeit, als sowohl in der hagiographischen Darstellung als auch in der Ikonographie der Heiligen mehr und mehr militaerische Attribute einsickerten. Parallel dazu entstanden in Regionen Europas Typen von Glaubenszeugen, die im Kampf gegen Heiden fielen (angelsaechsische Koenige und skandinavische Herrscher). Heilige als Traeger und Stifter militaerischer Staerke werden bis in die Gegenwart instrumentalisiert (z.B. Hl. Georg, Demetrios), und es entstehen neue Erzaehlungen von Maertyrern in der Moderne, die den kriegerischen Aspekt hervorstreichen.

Im Rahmen der Tagung sollen Fragen zur Hagiographie, Sakraltopographie, Ikonographie und Gesellschaftsgeschichte diskutiert werden. Ein Schwerpunkt liegt dabei auf dem christlich gepraegten oestlichen Mittelmeerraum, aber die Verflechtungen mit dem westlichen und oestlichen Europa, vor allem was die Translationen betrifft (z.B. Hl. Georg, Theodoros Teron), machen eine gesamteuropaeische Perspektive notwendig.

Diese Tagung wird in Zusammenhang mit der Ausstellung “Von Drachenkaempfern und anderen Helden: Kriegerheilige auf Ikonen” (Ikonen-Museum Recklinghausen) (2. Oktober 2016 – 12. Februar 2017)
konzipiert.

[11]. JOURNEE D’ETUDE: “LE VOYAGE D’EUROPE AU FIL DES SIECLES: HISTOIRE ET RECEPTION D’UN MYTHE ANTIQUE” (STRASBOURG, 11.05.2017): CALL FOR PAPERS (DEADLINE: 28.02.2017)

Da: Maria Consiglia Alvino (consiglia.alvino@virgilio.it)

“LE VOYAGE D’EUROPE AU FIL DES SIECLES: HISTOIRE ET RECEPTION D’UN MYTHE ANTIQUE” / “EUROPE’S JOURNEY THROUGH THE AGES: HISTORY AND RECEPTION OF AN ANCIENT MYTH”
Strasbourg, 11th May 2017,
College Doctoral Europeen

Call for Papers
The myth of Europe is attested as soon as the 8th century BC, in the Homeric poems and in Hesiod’s Theogonia. This myth was indeed very popular from Antiquity on, giving rise to different revisions in the literary European productions, as well as in the artistic, theatrical, musical, philosophical ones. It had, therefore, great influence until nowadays in shaping and modelling some visions, figures and images in building theories connected to the debate around the influence of Graeco-Roman culture into the development of the idea of Europe.
In an essay titled Europe Vagabonde (in L’univers, les dieux, les hommes: recits grecs des origines, Paris: Seuil, 2000), J.-P. Vernant defines the myth of Europe, kidnapped by Zeus from Syria to Greece, and the resulting establishment of Cadmus’ dynasty in Thebes, as the history of a “vagabondage, plus encore que passage”, underlining the pluralistic, dynamic, multicultural perspectives at the bases of this myth of the origins.
The present international, multidisciplinary graduate Conference aims to join different cultural perspectives about the reception, transmission and usage of the ancient myth of Europe.
Confirmed keynote speakers: Prof. Laurent Pernot (Universite’ de Strasbourg, Member of the Institut de France); Prof. Luigi Spina (Universita’ di Napoli Federico II)
We welcome proposals from Phd Students and early career Researchers in the following fields: Classics, Modern Literatures, Philosophy, Religions Studies, Visual and Performing Arts.
Papers could focus on the following topics:
– The reception and use of the myth of Europe in philosophy and politics, in connection with the construction of symbols, images, conceptions and theories of the idea of Europe;
– The tradition and reception of the myth of Europe in Ancient literatures up to contemporary literature;
– New perspectives in the etymological researches about the term Europa;
– Comparative approaches to the analysis of the myth in the frame of the interrelations between Western and Eastern mythology;
– The reception and reuse of the myth of Europe in modern and contemporary artistic, theatrical, cinematographic and musical productions;

Contributions related to a general assessment about the trends of the influence and permanence of Classics in European culture are also welcome.
The University of Strasbourg will be glad to welcome participants in the European capital, the most suitable place to share ideas and perspectives on Europe in an international frame.
Abstracts of maximum 300 words must be sent as an anonymous attachment (i.e. the file must not contain the name of the author) no later than 28th February 2017 to mythedeurope@gmail.com (email subject: Mythe d’Europe 2017 Abstract). All papers should be planned for a maximum of 30 minutes, including 20 minutes for the presentation and 10 minutes for discussion.
The official languages of the conference will be French and English. Papers will be selected by the scientific committee following a double blind procedure. Confirmed speakers will be notified no later than 20th March 2017.
The Conference is promoted by the Centre d’Analyse des Rhetoriques Religieuses de l’Antiquite’ (CARRA EA3094) and the Faculte’ des Lettres of the University of Strasbourg, with the support of the Programme Doctoral International (PDI), the Strasbourg Association of International Researchers (StrasAir) and the association Rodopis – experience ancient History.
Certificates of attendance, if needed, will be released at the end of the conference.

[12]. 9 PETITE JOURNEE DE PATRISTIQUE DE L’ASSOCIATION CARITAS PATRUM: “GREGOIRE DE NAZIANZE, LE PASSEUR DE MONDES” (SAINTES, 18.03.2017)

Da: Delphine Lauritzen (delphinelauritzen@gmail.com)

PRESENTATION DE LA IXe P.J.P. CONSACREE A GREGOIRE DE NAZIANZE, LE PASSEUR DE MONDES

Gregoire de Nazianze est probablement avec Augustin celui des Peres que nous connaissons le mieux “de l’interieur”. Car, s’il ne nous a pas laisse’ a’ proprement parler de “Confessions” comme Augustin, l’homme et le spirituel sont bien la’, tout entiers, dans sa correspondance, l’une des plus importantes que nous ait leguee l’Antiquite’, tout comme dans ses poemes autobiographiques ou moraux.
Derriere le verbe cisele’ et l’expression hautement maitrisee, nous rencontrons un homme profondement humain, laissant cours a’ l’expression de sentiments tres personnels comme la deception ou la desillusion quant a’ la verite’ de l’amitie’, la profondeur du combat theologique ou meme les ambitions de certains prelats qu’il n’hesite pas a’ traiter “d’epiciers de la foi” ou de “faussaires d’impots”… Ne nous y trompons pas. Ce mal d’insatisfaction qui le fit par deux fois renoncer a’ un siege episcopal (d’abord d’une toute petite bourgade de Cappadoce, Sasimes, ou’ il n’est jamais alle’, puis du prestigieux siege de Constantinople en 381) n’est que la trace en creux de quelque chose de bien plus fort, l’absolu de sa passion pour le Verbe divin.
Fils d’eveque, c’est au sein de sa famille qu’il s’ouvrira a’ cette vocation de chantre du Verbe Incree’ en qui il contemple la recapitulation de toute l’oeuvre divine, des anciens sages de l’Hellade aux prophetes d’Israel. Se sachant fils d’Athenes et de Jerusalem, Gregoire refuse de choisir l’une contre l’autre. Dans sa priere comme dans sa predication, mais encore comme liturge, Gregoire ne cesse de rendre grace pour la puissance du Logos qui vient feconder aussi cette culture grecque qui l’a eleve’ et n’a pas de mots assez durs pour stigmatiser un empereur comme Julien qui pretendait interdire aux chretiens l’enseignement des Belles Lettres.
Pretre du Logos, Gregoire se sentira parfois depasse’, incapable de guider ses freres dans la contemplation de ce Mystere si ancien et si nouveau meme si sa predication a’ la veille du concile de Constantinople en 381 s’avera decisive pour le triomphe de l’orthodoxie et lui vaudra la fiere epithete de “Gregoire le Theologien”… Ce sera alors le temps de la retraite et du silence mais pour une fecondite’ dont nous vivons encore, l’enfantement de la culture antique au Christ-Logos. C’est a’ la rencontre de cette prodigieuse et deconcertante personnalite’ que nous convie cette nouvelle Petite Journee de Patristique consacree a’ Gregoire de Nazianze.

Cette IXe PETITE JOURNEE DE PATRISTIQUE organisee par l’Association CaritasPatrum, se deroulera a’ la Maison diocesaine de Saintes, 80 cours Genet a’ Saintes (17100), le samedi 18 mars 2017, de 9 h 00 a’ 16h30.

[13]. 49TH SPRING SYMPOSIUM OF THE SOCIETY FOR THE PROMOTION OF BYZANTINE STUDIES: “INSCRIBING TEXTS IN BYZANTIUM: CONTINUITIES AND TRANSFORMATIONS” (OXFORD, 18-20.03.2016)

Da: Aisbnews (aisbnews@gmail.com)

Inscribing Texts in Byzantium: Continuities and Transformations,
49th Spring Symposium of Byzantine Studies, Exeter College, Oxford, March 18–20, 2016

In spite of the striking abundance of extant primary material – over 4000 Greek texts produced in the period between the sixth and fifteenth centuries – Byzantine Epigraphy remains largely uncharted territory, with a reputation for being elusive and esoteric that obstinately persists. References to inscriptions in our texts show how ubiquitous and deeply engrained the epigraphic habit was in Byzantine society, and underscore the significance of epigraphy as an auxiliary discipline. The SPBS Symposium 2016 has invited specialists in the field to examine diverse epigraphic material in order to trace individual epigraphic habits, and outline overall inscriptional traditions. In addition to the customary format of panel papers and shorter communications, the Symposium includes a round table, whose participants will lead a debate on the topics presented in the panel papers, and discuss the methodological questions of collection, presentation and interpretation of Byzantine inscriptional material.

Early registration available until 1 March 2016.

[1]. RESEARCH POST-DOCTORAL POSITION AT KOC UNIVERSITY ISTANBUL (DEADLINE: 31.01.2017)

Da: Vera von Falkenhausen (verafalk@libero.it)

RESEARCH POST-DOCTORAL POSITION AT KOC UNIVERSITY STAVROS NIARCHOS FOUNDATION CENTER FOR LATE ANTIQUE AND BYZANTINE STUDIES (GABAM)

DESCRIPTION
GABAM is launching a new research project, focusing on the City Walls of Istanbul (Land walls, Marmara Sea walls and Golden Horn walls), scheduled to conclude within a 2 year period. The main aim of the project is to create an elaborate documentation of the Walls, integrating accurate recording and fieldwork, with the latest research on the architecture, archaeology, history, and art. The period covered by the project will extend from the first founding of the Walls to modern times. GABAM plans to host a team of researchers encompassing the Byzantine, Ottoman, and Turkish Republic history of the walls. One of the main outcomes of this project will be an interactive web portal that aspires to be of use both to the academic community and the wider public.
As a first step, GABAM will appoint post-doctoral fellows, who will be part of the research team and will be fully employed on the Walls project. The Felloswhip includes stipend, accomodation, travel and health insurance. The appointed fellow(s) will be able to take full advantage of the facilities and libraries connected to Koc University.

QUALIFICATIONS
The succesful candidate(s) must hold a PhD degree in Byzantine studies; his/her subject being related to history of art, architecture, and history. Candidates with a research record in military studies, especially if involved with the defense systems of Constantinople, may be given priority.
As the research project involves the use of digital humanities, candidates with experience in the field are encouraged to apply.
The place of work will be the GABAM Office at Koc University, Sariyer, Istanbul. However, the fellow(s) will be required to participate in fieldwork as members of the team documenting the walls.
The study and working language of both Koc University and GABAM is English. Knowledge of other languages such as German, French, and – particularly, Byzantine Greek, is an asset.

PERIOD
1 year contract, with a possible additional 1 year extension.

APPLICATION
Applications should be submitted to gabamku.edu.tr no later than 31 January, 2017, and include a cover letter, details of two referees (who will be contacted for references only after a candidate has reached the final stages of the selection process), and a curriculum vitae with a list of publications and other scholarly work.

[3]. LANCEMENT D’UNE NOUVELLE REVUE (“PHILOLOGIA ANTIQUA”) ET APPEL A’ CONTRIBUTIONS

Da: Delphine Lauritzen (delphinelauritzen@gmail.com)

PHILOLOGIA ANTIQVA
An International Journal of Classics
Fabrizio Serra editore, Pisa – Roma

Gli studiosi di filologia classica producono a volte dei lavori che, per importanza e misura, superano lo standard degli articoli comunemente ospitati nelle riviste, e al tempo stesso non raggiungono un’estensione tale da realizzarne un volume. Si tratta di saggi rilevanti, che finiscono per essere raccolti, nella maggior parte dei casi, in volumi miscellanei, o pubblicati come “quaderni” di riviste: sedi, talora, di difficile reperibilita’. L’Accademia editoriale, nel solco della tradizione di prestigiose riviste europee del secolo XIX, propone alla comunita’ scientifica internazionale una nuova rivista, “Philologia Antiqua”, che intende colmare una lacuna nel panorama editoriale, offrendo ampi spazi di ricerca scientifica nel campo dell’antichita’ classica. Come in un’ideale biblioteca di saggi importanti su argomenti di rilievo relativi al mondo antico e alla produzione letteraria greca e latina, “Philologia Antiqua” ospitera’, in ogni fascicolo, lavori di studiosi riconosciuti a livello internazionale, proponendosi come punto di riferimento, anche in ragione dell’esperienza pluriennale dell’Editore in questo campo di studi.
