Millar F

Millar F. Rome, Greek World, and the East. Vol. 1. The Roman Republic and the Augustan Revolution

Fergus Millar is one of the most influential contemporary historians of the ancient world. His essays and books, including The Emperor in the Roman World and The Roman Near East, have enriched our understanding of the Greco-Roman world in fundamental ways. In his writings Millar has made the inhabitants of the Roman Empire central to our conception of how the empire functioned. He also has shown how and why Rabbinic Judaism, Christianity, and Islam evolved from within the wider cultural context of the Greco-Roman world.
Opening this collection of sixteen essays is a new contribution by Millar in which he defends the continuing significance of the study of Classics and argues for expanding the definition of what constitutes that field. In this volume he also questions the dominant scholarly interpretation of politics in the Roman Republic, arguing that the Roman people, not the Senate, were the sovereign power in Republican Rome. In so doing he sheds new light on the establishment of a new regime by the first Roman emperor, Caesar Augustus.

About the Author
Fergus Millar is Camden Professor of Ancient History at the University of Oxford. Hannah M. Cotton is professor of history and classics at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Guy M. Rogers is professor of classics and history at Wellesley College.

"Reflects the remarkably wide and multifaceted interests by which Fergus Millar continues to enrich the study of ancient history."
-Times Literary Supplement

"A readable, stimulating anthology."
-Choice

"A dizzying series of revisionist essays, always challenging with their recurring and intermeshed themes. Commendations are due the editors for the care devoted to assembling and presenting this volume."
-Classical Bulletin

"Fergus Millar's vast output of publications on all periods of Roman and Hellenistic history. has established his reputation as the outstanding Roman historian of his generation."
-Journal of Roman Studies

"Millar is one of the greatest of today's ancient historians. This volume not only displays the consistent development of his thought on the Roman Republic, its nature, and its structures, but presents the challenges to accepted views that have emerged over the years from this perceptive and thoroughgoing writer."
-John Richardson, University of Edinburgh

"Anyone interested in ancient history will wish to have this collection of Millar's essays on their shelf. He has made an enormous contribution to our understanding of the Roman Empire in all its richness and diversity. His introductory essay provides an overview of where Roman history is going and how his own work fits in the larger picture."
-Philip A. Stadter, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Into God's Presence: Prayer In The New Testament (McMaster New Testament Studies)

The Christian life cannot be fully understood or experienced without first grasping the importance of prayer. Yet prayer, as it is found in the Christian scriptures, has received limited attention as a topic of study. Into God's Presence explores the nature and use of prayer throughout the entire New Testament. Written by twelve leading biblical scholars with diverse confessional perspectives, this insightful volume first discusses Christian prayer in relation to prayer in the Old Testament, the Greco-Roman world, first-century Judaism, and the Dead Sea Scrolls. The rest of the book takes an instructive look at prayer as it appears from Matthew to Revelation, with special attention given to Jesus as an exemplar and teacher of prayer. "Speaking of prayer in the New Testament. 12 biblical scholars including N.T. Wright and David Aune offer the anthology Into God's Presence: Prayer in the New Testament, exploring the topic by first examining prayer in the Jewish tradition, in the Greco-Roman world and in the Dead Sea Scrolls. The essays then discuss prayer in the Gospels and the Pauline Epistles, ending (of course!) with a coda essay on prayer in the Book of Revelation." - Publishers Weekly

Manius Valerius Maximus

Manius Valerius Maximus Appointment as dictator

During the period of popular discontent in Rome which led to the First secessio plebis in 494 BC. each of the Volsci. Sabines and the Aequi took up arms against Rome at the same time. To meet the threat and because of the popular political concerns at the time, Valerius was appointed dictator by the Roman senate. He was said to have been chosen because of his moderate temper. His appointment was accepted by the people because of the popularity of his late brother Publius. [ 1 ]

Resolution of military affairs

Valerius called for conscripts and the people responded positively. Ten legions (about 45.000 men) were raised, a greater number than had been raised previously at any one time. Four of these legions were assigned to the dictator to deal with the Sabines who were regarded as the most serious of the three military threats, and three to each of the consuls to meet the Aequi and the Volsci. [ 1 ]

Valerius marched with his army to meet the Sabines and won a victory. for which he was awarded a triumph. Additionally the honour of a curule chair in the circus maximus was given to him and his descendants. [ 3 ]

Secession of the plebs

After the armies' return to Rome, Valerius requested the senate to deal with the ongoing debt issues which were afflicting the people. The senate declined to act, and the dictator was outraged. He said before the senate:

You will not let me recommend concord. Trust me, before long you will wish that the people of Rome had patrons similar to me. For my part, I will neither further disappoint my fellow citizens, nor will I be dictator to no purpose. Internal divisions and foreign wars caused the republic to require such a magistrate. Peace has been secured abroad, it is impeded at home. I will be a witness to these disturbances as a private citizen rather than as dictator.

He resigned his commission, and went to his house, greeted by the applause of the people. [ 3 ]

Greece and the Augustan Cultural Revolution (Greek Culture in the Roman World)

Author. Date: 06 Mar 2012, Views:

2012 | 328 Pages | ISBN: 1107012112 | PDF | 2.99 Mb


This book examines the impact of the Roman cultural revolution under Augustus on the Roman province of Greece. It argues that the transformation of Roman Greece into a classicizing 'museum' was a specific response of the provincial Greek elites to the cultural politics of the Roman imperial monarchy. Against a background of Roman debates about Greek culture and Roman decadence, Augustus promoted the ideal of a Roman debt to a 'classical' Greece rooted in Europe and morally opposed to a stereotyped Asia. In Greece the regime signalled its admiration for Athens, Sparta, Olympia and Plataea as symbols of these past Greek glories. Cued by the Augustan monarchy, provincial-Greek notables expressed their Roman orientation by competitive cultural work (revival of ritual; restoration of buildings) aimed at further emphasising Greece's 'classical' legacy. Reprised by Hadrian, the Augustan construction of 'classical' Greece helped to promote the archaism typifying Greek culture under the principate.

Reviews

'Let it be said right away: if you want to avoid changing your lecture notes, do not read this book! Martin Goodman, Professor of Jewish Studies at Oxford University, is an acclaimed scholar in both Roman and Jewish studies, and
with good reason. Though I, like probably many others, only reluctantly change my lecture notes, I find myself greatly enriched by having read this volume. for anyone occupied with the late Second Temple period, Goodman’s volume is a must read.
