The Boston College Jesuit Bibliography

The New Sommervogel Online

Editor: Robert A. Maryks, Boston College

The New Sommervogel (NSO) is a comprehensive online

bibliography covering books, book chapters, journal articles and

book reviews pertaining to the exponentially growing field of Jesuit

Studies. In addition to basic bibliographic information, entries

include (English) abstracts, detailed subject headings, direct links

to items available in electronic format where available, and a link

to an item’s WorldCat entry, which shows where it may be located.

The database covers more than 1,600 periodicals and is updated

regularly.

From its very beginnings in the sixteenth century the Society

of Jesus has maintained a unique tradition of bibliographic

recordkeeping of works by and about Jesuits, starting with

Pedro de Ribadeneyra’s Bibliotheca Scriptorum Societatis Iesu

(1643). Continuing in this tradition with the tools of the digital

humanities, the Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies at Boston

College has begun work on The Boston College Jesuit Bibliography:

The New Sommervogel.

Thanks to generous support of the Institute for Advanced Jesuit

Studies at Boston College, it is offered as an open-access resource.

Gazetteer of the Persian Gulf,

Oman and Central Arabia Online

John Gordon Lorimer

The Gazetteer of the Persian Gulf, Oman and Central Arabia Online

is one of the most important European primary sources for the

study of the modern Gulf region from the 17th to the early 20th

century. The Gazetteer, was compiled and written by John Gordon

Lorimer (1870-1914), an official of the Indian Civil Service. The

Gazetteer was intended as handbook for British policy makers

and agents in the area. The wealth of historical, political and

geographical information from which Lorimer composed the

Gazetteer was sourced from official documents of the British

government in India and the Gulf, from British naval and military

establishments and the East India Company archives, and firsthand

research and surveys. It is the fullest account of the state of

knowledge of the region in the late nineteenth and early twentieth

centuries, and as such is still an important tool for researchers.

This full-text searchable online version offers scholars and students

unique possibilities to study and consult this important work.

Codices Vossiani Latini Online

Advisor: André Bouwman, Chief Curator & Curator of

Western Manuscripts of Leiden University Libraries

The Codices Vossiani Latini Online publishes all 363 codices

which form the world-famous Latin part of Isaac Vossius’

manuscript collection held at Leiden University Library. The

Codices Vossiani Latini count a large number of early medieval

manuscripts (a whopping 76 Carolingian manuscripts dating

from before 900), including major sources of many classic texts.

Famous are the oldest sources of Lucretius’ De natura rerum,

of Cicero’s philosophical works, and the earliest manuscript of

Plinius’ Historia naturalis known to be produced north of the

Alps (Northumbria, eighth century). Other highlights include an

illustrated herbal from around 600 and the Aratea, an astronomical

treatise from around 840, manufactured at the court of Louis

the Pious with 39 beautiful miniatures of the constellations. A

large part of the research done by foreign scholars on Western

manuscripts at Leiden University Library focuses on the Vossiani

Latini.

Isaac Vossius (1618-1689) was a classical philologist and collector

of manuscripts, maps, atlases and printed works. Vossius was

born in 1618 as the son of the humanist Gerard Johannes Vossius

(1577-1649). In 1648, Isaac started to work as a scholar for Queen

Christina of Sweden. After he had sold the famous library of his

father to Christina in 1649, Vossius was appointed court librarian a

year later, with the task of expanding and cataloguing the library.

After a stay of eighteen months in the Republic, partly forced,

Vossius returned to Sweden in 1653, where he found his own book

collection and the court library in great disarray. When Christina

abdicated in 1654, a large part of her library was shipped to Rome.

A part of the manuscripts and printed books was, however, taken

from Christina’s library by Vossius as compensation for late

payments, and for the loss of his own books. At the end of his

life Vossius bequeathed his library to the children of his brother

Matthaeus.

The 363 codices in all comprise 40,278 openings, resulting in 84,266

images, including covers and flyleaves.

The manuscript collection is enriched by detailed information

drawn from by K. A. de Meyier’s catalogues of the codices,

providing users, both students and researchers, with essential

information on the content, context, and physical appearance of

each codex.

Dictionary of Renaissance Latin from

Prose Sources Online / Lexique de la prose

latine de la Renaissance en ligne

An online version of the first dictionary of Renaissance

Latin, based on its second revised print edition. It records the

vocabulary of over 230 Latin prose authors from different regional

backgrounds who wrote between c. 1300 and c. 1600, and gives

translations in French and English in approximately 11,000 entries.

A standard tool not only for latinists and neo-latinists, but also

for historians, philosophers, theologians, historians of law, and

intellectual historians working in the fields of Humanism, the

Renaissance, the Reformation and Counter-Reformation.

It is based upon a reading of a very large number of texts by 150

authors from Western and Central Europe, including Budé, Calvin,

Erasmus, Ficino, Lipsius, Luther, Melanchthon, More, Petrarch,

Pica della Mirandola, Politian, Valla, Vives, and Zwingli. The

compiler has paid particular attention to variety in the source texts,

which cover literature, correspondence, history, law, philosophy,

theology, and science. This work has been long awaited by scholars

and students and will become a standard tool not only for latinists

and neo-latinists, but also for all those historians, philosophers,

theologians, historians of law, and intellectual historians working

in the fields of Humanism, the Renaissance, the Reformation and

Counter-Reformation.

The Secret War Between the U.S.

and the USSR, 1945-1991

Editor: Matthew M. Aid

U.S. Intelligence on Europe,

1945-1995

Editor: Matthew M. Aid

U.S. Intelligence on the

Middle East, 1945-2009

Editor: Matthew M. Aid

This unique collection of well over 2,300

formerly classified U.S. government

documents (most of them classified Top

Secret or higher) provides readers for the

first time with the documentary record

of the successes and failures of the U.S.

intelligence community in its efforts to spy

on the Soviet Union during the Cold War.

This document collection covers the period

from the end of World War II in 1945 until

the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991,

but also includes a number of formerly

classified historical reports and articles

written by U.S. intelligence historians since

the end of the Cold War.

This unique collection of over 4,000

formerly classified U.S. government

documents provides a comprehensive

survey of the U.S. intelligence community’s

activities in Europe, including Eastern

Europe, Turkey and Cyprus, covering the

time period from the end of World War II

to the fall of the Iron Curtain and beyond.

Scope:

- U.S. Intelligence operations in Western

Europe

- U.S. Intelligence operations in Eastern

Europe

- U.S. -Intelligence gathering on Western

European communist parties

- Economic intelligence gathering

- Monitoring European anti-nuclear groups

in the 1980s

- Intelligence gathering on terrorist groups

- Analyses of European socio-economic

developments

Since 1945, the U.S. intelligence community

has had to cover a half dozen major wars

and several dozen smaller but equally

bloody armed conflicts in the Middle East,

as well as innumerable civil wars, border

clashes, armed insurgencies, and terrorist

attacks. This comprehensive document

set sheds light on the U.S. intelligence

community’s spying and analytic efforts in

the Arab world, including the Middle East,

the Near East, and North Africa. It covers

the time period from the end of World War

II to the present day, up until the 2002-2003

Iraqi Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)

assessments, the Global War on Terror, the

Iraq War, and Iran’s nuclear program.

Book Sales Catalogues Online

Book Auctioning in the Dutch Republic, 1599 - ca. 1800

Karel Bostoen, Leiden University, Otto Lankhorst, Alicia

C. Montoya, Radboud University, Marieke van Delft,

Koninklijke Bibliotheek - National library of the Netherlands

Book Sales Catalogues Online (BSCO) offers a comprehensive

bibliography of book sales catalogues printed in the Dutch

Republic before 1801. A sophisticated search menu provides access

to some 3,750 digital facsimiles from ca. 50 libraries across Europe,

including major collections in the Netherlands, Germany, Great

Britain, France, and Russia. More catalogues will be added in the

future. These catalogues are a key primary source for research

on the history of the book and libraries, the history of ideas, the

history of collecting, the history of literature, and the history of art.

They contain information on books from all over Europe in various

languages, such as Dutch, French, and Latin.

Book Sales Catalogues as Sources

Auction catalogues are indispensable sources for research on:

- The history of the book catalogues prepared for an auction of

a publisher’s wholesale stock provide information about the

titles published and distributed by him. Booksellers’ stock

catalogues and stock-auction catalogues give a picture of the

books present in a bookstore at a given time. Like the catalogues

of private libraries, they repeatedly list books which have since

disappeared. Auction catalogues contain information about the

provenance of manuscripts and unique copies of printed books.

- The history of libraries, few records of important private libraries

of the past have been preserved. Interest in book ownership in

early modern times is increasing, and with it the demand for

historic auction catalogues.

- The history of ideas and literature more than any other source,

sales catalogues offer the possibility to determine to what extent

books circulated.

- The history of art combined book and art auctions were common.

Auction catalogues often list not only drawings and prints but

also feature sections on paintings as well as coin and medal

collections.

of the world is blocked. On the contrary

- the multifaceted interrelatedness of

European and other cultures is scrutinized

extensively. The Encyclopedia of Early

to history’s key questions:

- Which ideas, inventions, and events

changed people’s lives?

- In which ways did living conditions

change?

- How do political, social, and economic

developments interlock?

- Which major cultural currents have begun

to become apparent?

- How did historical interpretation of

certain phenomena change?

As in a web of red threads, the individual

articles are connected to one another. The

Church History and

Religious Culture

Formerly: Nederlands Archief

voor Kerkgeschiedenis

Early Science and Medicine

A Journal for the Study of Science,

Technology and Medicine in the

Pre-modern Period

East Asian Publishing

and Society

Edited by Peter Kornicki,

University of Cambridge

Edited by Jan Wim Buisman, Leiden

University, Aza Goudriaan, VU

University Amsterdam, and R. Ward

Holder, Saint Anselm College

Edited by Christoph Lüthy, Radboud

University, Nijmegen and Michael J.

Edwards, Jesus College, Cambridge

Church History and Religious Culture is a

long-established, peer-reviewed periodical,

primarily devoted to the history of

Christianity. It contains articles in this field

as well as in other specialised related areas.

For many years the Nederlands Archief voor

Kerkgeschiedenis has established itself as

an unrivalled resource for the subject both

in the major research libraries of the world

and in the private collections of professors

and scholars. Now published under the title

Church History and Religious Culture, this

journal offers you an easy way to stay on

top of your discipline.

Early Science and Medicine (ESM) is a peerreviewed

international journal dedicated

to the history of science, medicine and

technology from the earliest times through

to the end of the eighteenth century. The

need to treat in a single journal all aspects

of scientific activity and thought to the

eighteenth century is due to two factors:

to the continued importance of ancient

sources throughout the Middle Ages

and the early modern period, and to the

comparably low degree of specialization

and the high degree of disciplinary

interdependence characterizing the period

before the professionalization of science.

East Asian Publishing and Society is a

new journal dedicated to the study of the

publishing of texts and images in East Asia,

from the earliest times up to the present.

The journal will provide a platform for

multi-disciplinary research by scholars

addressing publishing practices in China,

Korea, Japan, Taiwan and Vietnam.

East Asian Publishing and Society invites

articles that treat any aspect of publishing

history: production, distribution, and

reception of manuscripts, imprints (books,

periodicals, pamphlets, and single sheet

prints), and electronic text. Studies of

authorship and editing, the business of

publishing, reading audiences and reading

practices, libraries and book collection,

the relationship between the state and

publishing—to name just a few possible

topics—are welcome.

Erasmus Studies, formerly the Erasmus of

Rotterdam Society Yearbook, is published

under the auspices of the Erasmus

of Rotterdam Society. The Society

was founded in 1980 with the aim of

encouraging research and writing on

Erasmus, his contemporaries, and their

intellectual milieu. Erasmus Studies is

a peer-reviewed publication containing

scholarly articles and book reviews on

these subjects.

Erudition and the Republic of Letters is a

peer-reviewed journal devoted primarily

to the history of scholarship, intellectual

history, and to the respublica literaria

broadly conceived. It encapsulates

multifarious aspects of higher learning

as well as the manner in which such

knowledge transcends confessional and

geopolitical boundaries.

This seems to be a propitious time for

such an enterprise, as there exists a lively,

and mostly young, community of scholars

who carry out excellent and exciting work.

Erudition and the Republic of Letters will

establish itself quickly as the premier

venue of its kind, and cater to the needs

and aspirations of this community, while

exhibiting the viability of the subject

matter to students. The journal’s policy

would be to not impose arbitrary word

limit, but allow the content of the essay to

determine length. Also, it would encourage

publication of scholarly articles as well as

editions of texts, reviews etc—from the late

Middle Ages to the end of the Nineteenth

Century.

Explorations in Renaissance Culture is

a biannual, multidisciplinary scholarly

journal devoted to all disciplines of study

in the early-modern/Renaissance period:

literature, history, art and iconography,

music, cultural studies, etc. Articles are

published in English and are fully refereed,

using a double-blind review process. ERC

is published in cooperation with the South-

Central Renaissance Conference.

Grotiana

A Journal published under

the auspices of the Grotiana

Foundation

Edited by Hans Blom, Erasmus

University Rotterdam

Fascism publishes peer-reviewed articles in

English, mainly but not exclusively by both

seasoned researchers and postgraduates

exploring the phenomenon of fascism in

a comparative context and focusing on

such topics as the uniqueness and generic

aspects of fascism, patterns in the causal

aspects/genesis of various fascisms in

political, economic, social, historical, and

psychological factors, their expression

in art, culture, ritual and propaganda,

elements of continuity between interwar

and postwar fascisms, their relationship

to national and cultural crisis, revolution,

modernity/modernism, political religion,

totalitarianism, capitalism, communism,

extremism, charismatic dictatorship,

patriarchy, terrorism, fundamentalism,

and other phenomena related to the rise of

political and social extremism.

Frontiers of History in China (FHIC)

aims to reflect the most recent scholarly

achievements in the research of Chinese

history throughout all historical periods.

Topics for consideration include, but

are not limited to: social and cultural

history, political and economic history,

environmental history, gender history,

and historical anthropology. FHIC seeks to

promote academic communication and

cooperation between historians in China

and the rest of the world.

Grotiana appears under the auspices of

the Grotiana Foundation. The journal’s

leading objective is the furtherance of the

Grotian tradition. It welcomes any relevant

contribution to a better understanding of

Grotius’ life and works. At the same time

close attention will be paid to Grotius’

relevance for present-day thinking about

world problems. Grotiana therefore

intends to be a forum for exchanges

concerning the philosophical, ethical and

legal fundamentals of the search for an

international order.

BRILL CATALOG 2016 HISTORY

Historical Materialism seeks to

reappropriate and refine the classical

Marxist tradition for emancipatory

purposes. It promotes a genuine and

open dialogue between individuals

working in different traditions of Marxism

and encourages an interdisciplinary,

international debate between researchers

and academics.

Historical Materialism sees itself as

encouraging a new generation of Marxist

writers and researchers.

Future issues will focus on Africa, fantasy,

the visual arts, Empire, anticapitalism,

film, dialectics, the American working

class, modes of production, sexuality, and

postcolonial fascism.

Hobbes Studies is an international, peerreviewed

scholarly journal. It publishes

research (articles, book symposia,

research notes and book reviews) about

philosophical, political, historical, literary,

religious, and scientific aspects of Thomas

Hobbes’s thought.

The journal Intellectual History of the

Islamicate World provides a forum for

research that systematically crosses

the boundaries between three major

disciplines of academia and research,

viz. Islamic Studies, Jewish Studies

and the study of (Eastern) Christianity.

It encourages discussion among

representatives of these and related

disciplines, with a view to promoting a new

understanding of intellectual history in all

its facets throughout the Islamicate world,

from its emergence until modern times and

from different methodological perspectives.

Intellectual History of the Islamicate World

covers such themes as philosophy, theology,

exegesis, law and legal methodology,

sciences and medicine.

The International Bibliography of Military

History (IBMH) has been continuously

published since 1978 on behalf of the

International Commission of Military

History (ICMH), which can trace back

its origins to 1938. Traditionally, and as

the title indicates, its main focus was on

book reviews and review articles. Since

the journal’s move to Brill in 2011, there

has been an additional emphasis on

historiographical articles, and the portfolio

has been enlarged to include also original

research articles.

The IBMH thus offers its readers and

authors a platform that includes original

research articles on any military historical

topic from antiquity to the contemporary

period that can appeal to an international

readership; historiographical and review

articles on an issue of major significance or

dealing with the state of military history.

The Journal of Abbasid Studies (JAS),

published by Brill, the Netherlands, is a

platform to discuss the political, cultural,

social, economic, religious and intellectual

life of the Abbasid Caliphate. The journal’s

time span, from c. 700 – c. 1250 A.D., is

demarcated by the formative period of

early Islam on the one end and the invasion

of the Mongols on the other. Coverage of

the Fatimid Caliphate and al-Andalus, for

instance, is restricted to their relations with

the Abbasids.

JAS brings scholars together who work on

the classical Islamic world and who are

active in different disciplines which only

rarely “talk” to one another — in this way

the Journal hopes to achieve a holistic

contemplation of the Abbasid era.

The peer-reviewed journal, Journal of

Chinese Humanities, is an English-language

extension of Literature, History and

Philosophy (Wen Shi Zhe《 文 史 哲 》),

a famous Chinese journal published by

Shandong University. The content is not

restricted to one aspect of Chinese culture

but rather spans important topics within

the fields of Chinese history, philosophy,

and literature. It covers both traditional and

modern areas of re-search. Importantly, as

opposed to most English language journals

that treat on Chinese studies, this journal

aims to represent the current research

coming out of mainland China. Thus each

issue will be composed primarily of articles

from Chinese scholars working at Chinese

institutions, while at the same time

including a small number of articles from

foreign authors so as to provide opposing

perspectives.

The Journal of Chinese Military History is a

peer-reviewed semi-annual that publishes

research articles and book reviews. It

aims to fill the need for a journal devoted

specifically to China’s martial past and

takes the broadest possible view of military

history, embracing both the study of

battles and campaigns and the broader,

social-history oriented approaches that

have become known as “the new military

history.” It aims to publish a balanced

mix of articles representing a variety of

approaches to both modern and premodern

Chinese military history. The

journal also welcomes comparative and

theoretical work as well as studies of the

military interactions between China and

other states and peoples, including East

Asian neighbours such as Japan, Korea, and

Vietnam.

The early modern colonization of the

Americas ranks among the most influential

developments that shaped the modern

world. Between the initial exploratory

European contacts with the Americas

in the late fifteenth century and the

eventual independence of American

states from Europe lies the multifaceted

development of small communities into

large colonies, which drew upon their

European inheritance and their New World

experience and interaction with non-

European cultures and societies to form

distinctive cultures and identities.

The peer-reviewed Journal of Early

American History is dedicated to the

advancement of scholarly understanding

of the history of the colonization of the

Americas and appears three times annually.

It offers explorations on any aspect of early

American history to a broad audience of

historians.

The early modern period of world history

(ca. 1300-1800) was marked by a rapidly

increasing level of global interaction.

Between the aftermath of Mongol

conquest in the East and the onset of

industrialization in the West, a framework

was established for new kinds of contacts

and collective self-definition across an

unprecedented range of human and

physical geographies. The Journal of Early

Modern History, the official journal of

the University of Minnesota Center for

Early Modern History, is the first scholarly

journal dedicated to the study of early

modernity from this world-historical

perspective, whether through explicitly

comparative studies, or by the grouping

of studies around a given thematic,

chronological, or geographic frame.

Journal of the Economic

Journal of Egyptian History

Founding Editor: Thomas Schneider

Managing Editor: Damian Alan Pargas,

Edited by Paolo Sartori, Austrian

Academy of Sciences

JESHO (Journal of the Economic and Social

History of the Orient) publishes original

research articles in Asian, Near, Middle

Eastern and Mediterranean Studies across

history. The journal promotes world

history from Asian and Middle Eastern

perspectives and it challenges scholars to

integrate cultural and intellectual history

with economic, social and political analysis.

The editors of the journal invite both

early-career and established scholars to

present their explorations into new fields of

research. JESHO encourages debate across

disciplines in the humanities and the social

sciences. Published since 1958, JESHO is

the oldest and most respected journal in

its field.

The Journal of Egyptian History aims to

encourage and stimulate a focused debate

on writing and interpreting Egyptian

history ranging from the Neolithic

foundations of Ancient Egypt to its

modern reception. It covers all aspects

of Ancient Egyptian history (political,

social, economic, and intellectual) and

of modern historiography about Ancient

Egypt (methodologies, hermeneutics,

interplay between historiography and

other disciplines, and history of modern

Egyptological historiography).

The Journal of Global Slavery (JGS)

aims to advance and promote a greater

understanding of slavery and post-slavery

from comparative, transregional, and/

or global perspectives. It especially

underscores the global and globalizing

nature of slavery in world history.

As a practice in which human beings were

held captive for an indefinite period of

time, coerced into extremely dependent

and exploitative power relationships,

denied rights (including potentially rights

over their labor, lives, and bodies), could be

bought and sold, were vulnerable to forced

relocation by various means, and forced

to labor against their will, slavery in one

form or another has existed in innumerable

societies throughout history.

The object of the Journal of the History of

International Law/Revue d’histoire du droit

international is to contribute to the effort

to make intelligible the international legal

past, however varied and eccentric it may

be, to stimulate interest in the whys, the

whats and wheres of international legal

development, without projecting present

relationships upon the past, and to promote

the application of a sense of proportion

to the study of current international legal

problems. The aim of the Journal is to open

fields of inquiry, to enable new questions to

be asked, to be awake to and always aware

of the plurality of human civilizations and

cultures, past and present, and to maintain

an appreciation of patterns of cultural

flow and interaction that centrally affect

international law and its development.

The Journal of Jesuit Studies (JJS) is a peerreviewed

quarterly journal dedicated to

the study of Jesuit history from the 16th to

the 21st century. It welcomes articles on

all aspects of the Jesuit past and present

including, but not limited to, the Jesuit

role in the arts and sciences, theology,

philosophy, mission, literature, and

interreligious/inter-cultural encounters. In

its themed issues the JJS highlights studies

with a given topical, chronological or

geographical focus. In addition there are

two open-topic issues per year. The journal

publishes a significant number of book

reviews as well. One of the key tasks of the

JJS is to relate episodes in Jesuit history,

particularly those which have suffered

from scholarly neglect, to broader trends in

global history over the past five centuries.

Migration is an important topic of

academic, public and political debate.

Migration research generates a wealth of

articles. The Journal of Migration History

(JMH) is the first to specialize in the field.

Articles on migration history either appear

in journals that specialize on current issues,

or in more general historical journals. In

both case the articles are somewhat lost.

They also appear in journals that focus

on areas (i.e., Asia, Europe, Africa) or in

journals that focus on a particular time

period (ancient history, medieval history).

There is great need for a journal that covers

a large period (antiquity until now) and all

parts of the world, enabling to strengthen

comparisons over time and space. This is a

key aspect of migration research.

Late Antique Archaeology

Philosophy of history is a rapidly expanding

area. There is growing interest today in:

what constitutes knowledge of the past, the

ontology of past events, the relationship

of language to the past, and the nature of

representations of the past. These interests

are distinct from – although connected

with – contemporary epistemology,

philosophy of science, metaphysics,

philosophy of language, and aesthetics.

Hence we need a distinct venue in which

philosophers can explore these issues. The

Journal of the Philosophy of History provides

such a venue.

Ever since neo-Kantianism, philosophy

of history has been central to all of

philosophy, whether or not particular

philosophers recognized its potential

significance. No philosophic account of

knowledge and truth can be considered

worthwhile unless it addresses the issue of

how we relate to our past.

Late Antique Archaeology is published

annually by Brill, based on papers given

at the conference series of the same

title, which meets annually in London.

Contributions generally aim to present

broad syntheses on topics relating to the

year’s theme, discussions of key issues,

or try to provide summaries of relevant

new fieldwork. Although papers from the

conference meetings form the core of

each volume, relevant articles, especially

syntheses, are welcome from other

scholars. All papers are subject to satisfying

the comments of two anonymous referees,

managed by the discretion of the editors.

The Legal History Review, inspired by E.M.

Meijers, is a peer-reviewed journal and

was founded in 1918 by a number of Dutch

jurists, who set out to stimulate scholarly

interest in legal history in their own

country and also to provide a centre for

international cooperation in the subject.

This has gradually through the years been

achieved. The Review had already become

one of the leading internationally known

periodicals in the field before 1940. Since

1950 when it emerged under Belgo-Dutch

editorship its position strengthened. Much

attention is paid not only to the common

foundations of the western legal tradition

but also to the special, frequently divergent

development of national law in the various

countries belonging to, or influenced by

it. Modern and contemporary, as well as

ancient and medieval history is considered.

Roman law and its later development,

as well as canon law, have always been

particularly important; in addition the

history of the English Common Law has

been extensively studied.

Medieval Encounters promotes discussion

and dialogue across cultural, linguistic and

disciplinary boundaries on the interactions

of Jewish, Christian and Muslim cultures

during the period from the fourth through

to the sixteenth century C.E.

Interacting traditions

Culture is defined in its widest form

to include art, all manner of history,

languages, literature, medicine, music,

philosophy, religion and science. The

geographic limits of inquiry will be

bounded only by the limits in which the

traditions interacted. Confluence, too, will

be construed in its widest form to permit

exploration of more indirect interactions

and influences and to permit examination

of important subjects on a comparative

basis.

The Netherlands Yearbook for History of

Art/Nederlands Kunsthistorisch Jaarboek

(NKJ) is a publication of The Foundation

for Dutch Art Historical Publications /

Stichting Nederlandse Kunsthistorische

Publicaties and BRILL.

Founded in 1947 the NKJ is a peerreviewed

annual, which has established

an international reputation for publishing

outstanding articles that reflect the variety

and diversity of approaches to the study

of Netherlandish art and culture. The NKJ

aims to foster traditional art historical

scholarship and to open up the field to

innovative cross disciplinary developments.

Each volume is dedicated to a particular

theme. Past volumes have included

monographic studies on Rogier van der

Weyden and Rubens, and broader cultural

and historical studies such as Picturing

the Exotic, Body and Embodiment, Art and

Science and Art and Migration.

Published continuously since 1919, the

New West Indian Guide (NWIG) is the

oldest scholarly journal on the Caribbean,

featuring English-language articles in the

fields of anthropology, art, archaeology,

economics, geography, geology, history,

international relations, linguistics,

complete review section on Caribbean

books – covering some 150 books each

year. NWIG is a peer-reviewed journal

and regularly publishes contributions by

authors from Brazil, Canada, Colombia,

France, England, Germany, Guyana, the

Netherlands, Suriname, the United States,

and Venezuela, as well as every part of the

insular Caribbean.

This is a fully Open Access journal, which

means that all articles are freely available

online, ensuring maximum, worldwide

dissemination of content, in exchange

for an Article Publication Charge. As

International Review for

Exec. Editors: Gregory D. Alles,

and Olav Hammer

Journal of the Material and Visual

History of Science (Formerly:

Annali dell’Istituto e Museo di

storia della scienza di Firenze)

Editor-in-Chief: Marco Beretta, Museo

Galileo and University of Bologna

Edited by Asad Q. Ahmed,

Robert G. Morrison,

and Cornelia Schöck

Numen (NU) publishes papers representing

the most recent scholarship in all areas

of the history of religions ranging from

antiquity to contemporary history. It

covers a diversity of geographical regions

and religions of the past as well as of

the present. The approach of the journal

to the study of religion is strictly nonconfessional.

While the emphasis lies on

empirical, source-based research, typical

contributions also address issues that

have a wider historical or comparative

significance for the advancement of

the discipline. Numen also publishes

papers that discuss important theoretical

innovations in the study of religion and

reflective studies on the history of the

discipline. The journal publishes book

reviews and review articles to keep

professionals in the discipline updated

about recent developments.

Nuncius is a peer-reviewed, international,

biannual journal devoted to the historical

role of material and visual culture in

science.

Nuncius explores the material sources

of scientific endeavor, such as scientific

instruments and collections, the specific

settings of experimental practice, and the

interactions between sciences and arts.

The materiality of science is a fundamental

source for the understanding of its

history, and the visual representation of

its concepts and objects is equally crucial.

Nuncius focuses on the exploration of

increasingly-varied modes of visual

description of observed reality. Founded in

1976, Nuncius was originally published as

Annali dell’Istituto e Museo di Storia della

Scienza.

Oriens is dedicated to extending our

knowledge of intellectual history and

developments in the rationalist disciplines

in Islamic civilization, with a special

emphasis on philosophy, theology, and

science. These disciplines had a profoundly

rich and lasting life in Islamic civilization

and often interacted in complex ways--from

the period of their introduction to Islamic

civilization in the translation movement

that began in the eighth century,

through the early and classical periods

of development, to the post-classical age,

when they shaped even such disciplines as

legal theory and poetics. The journal’s range

extends from the early and classical to the

early modern periods (ca. 700-1900 CE)

and it engages all regions and languages

of Islamic civilization. In the tradition of

Hellmut Ritter, who founded Oriens in 1948,

the central focus of interest of the journal is

on the medieval and early modern periods

of the Near and Middle East.

Oud Holland is the oldest surviving arthistorical

periodical in the world. Founded

by A.D. de Vries and N. der Roever in 1883, it

has appeared virtually without interruption

ever since. It is entirely devoted to the

visual arts in the Netherlands up to

the mid-nineteenth century and has

featured thousands of scholarly articles

by Dutch and foreign authors, including

numerous pioneering art-historical studies.

Almost from the magazine’s inception,

the publication of archival information

concerning Dutch artists has played an

important role. From 1885 to his death

in 1946, the renowned art historian

Dr. Abraham Bredius set a standard of

excellence for Oud Holland. Many other

well-known Dutch art historians have also

served as editor of the periodical.

Oud Holland is published four times a

year. Every volume is richly, full colour,

illustrated, has at least 200 pages, and

comes with a comprehensive printed index

of names.

Quærendo is a leading peer-reviewed

journal on the history of books and

manuscripts in Europe, especially but

not exclusively the Low Countries and its

neighbours. Particular emphasis is placed

on the interdisciplinary nature of book

history and the dissemination of books

and manuscripts. Since 1971 Quærendo

has established itself as a major forum for

contributions concerning the history of the

book. Each volume contains, besides full

articles on all aspects of the history of the

book, a special section for Book Reviews

and Notes in order to announce recent

discoveries, new publications and relevant

events.

Research Data Journal for the Humanities

and Social Sciences (RDJ) is a peer reviewed

e-only open access journal, which is

designed to comprehensively document

and publish deposited data sets and to

facilitate their online exploration. In this

way it wants to contribute to transparency

of research, accelerate dissemination and

foster reuse. The journal concentrates

on the Humanities and Social Sciences,

covering history, archaeology, language and

literature in particular. The publication

languages are English and Dutch. The

RDJ contains data papers: scholarly

publications of medium length (with a

maximum of 2500 words) containing a

non-technical description of a data set and

putting the data in a research context. A

data paper gets a persistent identifier and

provides publication credits to the author,

who is usually (but not necessarily) also

the data depositor. Research Data Journal

for the Humanities and Social Sciences

is published in collaboration with Data

Archiving and Networked Services (DANS).

Rural China, now in its tenth year of

publication, is a multidisciplinary journal

that focuses on the past and present of

China’s 900 million (registered) peasants

(including peasant migrant workers in

the towns and cities), their families and

communities, and their interactions with

the urban world. It publishes the best

mainland Chinese and international

scholarship from the disciplines of history,

anthropology, sociology, economics,

political science and law, as well as other

allied disciplines such as demography and

geography, art and literature, public health,

and comparative studies.

Rural China is the sister journal of Modern

China.

Russian History’s mission is the publication

of original articles on the history of Russia

through the centuries, in the assumption

that all past experiences are inter-related.

Russian History seeks to discover, analyze,

and understand the most interesting

experiences and relationships and

elucidate their causes and consequences.

Contributors to the journal take their stand

from different perspectives: intellectual,

economic and military history, domestic,

social and class relations, relations with

non-Russian peoples, nutrition and health,

all possible events that had an influence on

Russia. Russian History is the international

platform for the presentation of such

findings. It counts among its contributors

eminent scholars like Elise Wirtschafter,

Jeffrey Brooks, Michael Khodarkovsky,

Russell Martin and Sheila Fitzpatrick.

The Soviet and Post-Soviet Review is a

peer-reviewed journal which focuses on

the history of the Soviet Union and its

successor states, including but not limited

to the Russian Federation. The journal

welcomes original, scholarly submissions

in the form of articles, essays, and book

reviews relating to Soviet and post-Soviet

history, particularly the realms of social,

environmental, and cultural history.

Authors are requested to submit material

for consideration in English, although

Russian language submissions will also be

considered.

Scrinium: Journal of Patrology and Critical

Hagiography, established in 2005, is an

international scholarly periodical devoted

to patristics, critical hagiography, and

Church history. Its scope is the ancient and

medieval Christian Church worldwide, but

especially Eastern / Oriental Christianity

and Christian Origins. Each volume is

focused on a specific subject (covering

non less than 60% of the whole volume)

formulated in the individual title of each

volume.

The Turkish Historical Review is devoted

to Turkish history in the widest sense,

covering the period from the 6th century,

with the rise of the Turks in Central Asia,

to the 20th century. All contributions to

the journal must display a substantial

use of primary-source material and also

be accessible to historians in general, i.e.

those working outside the specific fields

of Ottoman and Turkish history. Articles

with a comparative scope which cross the

traditional boundaries of the area studies

paradigm are therefore very welcome. The

editors also encourage younger scholars to

submit contributions. The journal includes

a reviews section, which, in addition

to publications in English, French, and

other western European languages, will

specifically monitor new studies in Turkish

and those coming out in the Balkans,

Russia and the Middle East. The Turkish

Historical Review has a double-blind peer

review system.

Vivarium (VIV) is an international journal

dedicated to the history of philosophy

and intellectual life from the early Middle

Ages to the early-modern era. It is widely

recognized as an unrivalled resource for the

history of logic, semantics, epistemology,

and metaphysics. It welcomes articles on

medieval, Renaissance and early-modern

thinkers, their ideas, arguments, and

writings, as well as the institutional and

intellectual life of this period.

Editions of texts as brief appendices to

the main articles may be added. Articles

on early-modern philosophy are welcome

if they link it with the medieval and

Renaissance traditions. Articles on Arabic

and Jewish thought are welcome if there is

a clear connection with the Latin tradition.

Vivarium also publishes regularly special

issues devoted to a particular theme or

philosopher.

Vulcan

The International Journal of

the Social History of Military

Technology

Editor-in-Chief: Bart Hacker,

Smithsonian Institution, Washington

D.C.

Vulcan is a peer-reviewed, international,

interdisciplinary journal which aims

to cover all aspects of the social and

cultural contexts of military invention

and innovation. It focuses on questions

such as: how do the social and cultural

environments within the military

itself or in the larger society affect

military technological change? And the

indispensable corollary: how does changing

military technology affect other aspects of

society and culture? Articles will address

military technology as both agent and

object of social change.

Donna L. Sadler, Agnes Scott College

Cellini’s Perseus and Medusa and the Loggia

dei Lanzi: Configurations of the Body of State

explores the role that maternal influence

played in the formation of Cosimo I de’

Medici’s absolutist state.

Nine case studies on the artistic

representation of earthquakes, fires and

other natural disasters in European towns,

from the late Middle Ages to the end of the

20th century.

The sculpted Entombment of Christ in

Burgundy and Champagne is examined

from various viewpoints in Stone,

Flesh, Spirit. Whether invoking the

Holy Sepulcher or pathos by proxy, the

Entombments are a testament to the power

of late medieval devotion.

Evading Metropolitan Authority

in Colonial Suriname, 1650-1800

Karwan Fatah-Black, Leiden University

This volume puts together notions of

political liberty that arose in the English,

Portuguese and Spanish Atlantic world,

commencing with their inception in

the colonial period, following with the

independence of the Americas and the

subsequent efforts to build constitutional

order.

In this volume, Fatah-Black untangles the

ways in which metropolitan authorities

were defied and evaded in the process of

making Suriname a productive plantation

colony between 1650 and 1800.

Robert M. Andrews,

In Religion as an Agent of Change leading

historians and Church historians discuss

religion as a driving historical force on

the basis of three particular cases from

the history of Christianity in Western

Europe: the Crusades, the Reformation, and

Pietism.

Both men and women have claimed to be

the living voices or intermediaries of God.

This volume analyses the basis of their

authoritative claims and ask how and how

far they succeeded in securing obedience

from their followers.

In Lay Activism and the High Church

Movement of the Late Eighteenth Century,

Robert M. Andrews presents a biography of

the late eighteenth-century High Church

layman, William Stevens (1732-1807),

elucidating his influence within the High

Church movement of his day.

Cultural Dynamics of Science

Series Editors: Lissa Roberts, University of Twente, Enschede, the Netherlands,

Agustí Nieto-Galan, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain,

and Oliver Hochadel, Institució Milà i Fontanals, Barcelona, Spain

The new series Cultural Dynamics of Science (CDS) at Brill aims to contribute to on-going

efforts in the history of science to understand the relations between the production,

communication, consumption and use of knowledge without having recourse to the

traditional equation of popularization with notions such as ‘diffusion’ and ‘simplification’.

The same goes for the distinctions they imply between expert knowledge and practices,

on one side, and lay communities and understanding on the other. Focused on the period

from the Enlightenment to the present, CDS intends instead to consider the various ways

in which tensions and exchanges among the different actors involved have historically fed

the productive circulation of knowledge. Sensitivity to specific contexts, epistemologies,

spaces and networks, in which material production merges with knowledge production, is

therefore paramount.

Editorial Board: Sébastien Budgen,

The Historical Materialism Book Series is a

major publishing initiative of the radical

left. The capitalist crisis of the twenty-first

century has been met by a resurgence of

interest in critical Marxist theory. At the

same time, the publishing institutions

committed to Marxism have contracted

markedly since the high point of the 1970s.

The Historical Materialism Book Series

is dedicated to addressing this situation

by making available important works of

Marxist theory. The aim of the series is to

publish important theoretical contributions

as the basis for vigorous intellectual debate

and exchange on the left. We are convinced

that a project of this kind can make an

important contribution to the revitalisation

of critical politics and intellectual culture.

Avi Kober, Bar-Ilan University

This edited volume examines World War

I comparatively in both small nations and

subject nations within Europe such as

Ireland and Poland; neutral states, such

as Sweden and Spain; and colonies like

German East Africa.

In King of Battle: Artillery in World War I a

distinguished array of authors examines

the centrepiece of battle in the Great War,

artillery. Going beyond tables of calibres

and ranges, they look at organization,

training, personnel, doctrine, and

technologies.

The book offers a framework for the

analysis of formative factors in military

thought: an account of the Israel Defense

Force’s state of intellectualism and

modernity; and an analysis of the realist

and non-realist factors that have shaped

Israeli military thought.

In The Formation of the Islamic

studies by means of isnād-cum-matn

analysis legal and exegetical ḥadīth about

the meaning of the word kalāla in the

This volume contains a collection of

articles focusing on the philosophical and

theological exchanges between Muslim and

Christian intellectuals living in Baghdad

during the classical period of Islamic

history, when this city was a vibrant center

of philosophical, scientific, and literary

activity.

The present volume offers nineteen

studies of takfīr: accusations of unbelief,

covering different periods and parts of

the Muslim world. Takfīr was and is an

effective instrument to delegitimize one’s

opponents, who may face social exclusion

or even persecution.

Jesuit history is a wonderful prism through

to the Enlightenment to Colonialism to

Imperialism to Slavery to Anti-Modernism

to Fascism, et cetera.

historical novels; from the proclamation

of national-literary programmes to the

commemoration of great authors; from

folklore studies to folk revivals and from

Choral Societies and

Edited by Krisztina Lajosi, University

The Harp and the Constitution consists of

eleven essays charting the unexpected

ways in which the Celts and Goths were

reinvented in Britain and other European

countries through the eighteenth,

nineteenth, and twentieth centuries –

becoming not just mythologised races, but

lending their names to entire value systems.

In Exploring Transylvania, Török offers

a historical model of the culturally

heterogeneous scholarly landscape in

Transylvania. The book demonstrates how

an enduring politics of social difference

fostered national hierarchies, endemic

tensions, and centrifugal dynamics within

local scholarship.

Choral Societies and Nationalism in Europe

is a pioneering exploration of the role of

singing societies in nineteenth-century

nation-building. The wide-ranging essays in

this volume address both the national and

transnational implications of organized

communal singing.

National University

Religious Education in

Pre-Modern Europe

Edited by Ilinca Tanaseanu-Döbler

and Marvin Döbler

Edited by Tomáš Bubík, University of

Pardubice, and Henryk Hoffmann,

Jagiellonian University in Kraków

The book provides a systematic treatise

about the history and present of the

Academic study of Religions in the Central

and Eastern Europe. The origins of the

discipline can be found as late as the early

20th century, but promising beginnings

were disrupted by the rise of the Marxist-

Leninist critique of religion.

Religious Transformation in Modern Asia

offers phenomenological glimpses of

the religious transition in 18th to 20th

centuries. The colonial experience of

indigenous Asian people, as case studies,

will be expounded in relation to the

emergence of a new religion, Christianity.

Although religious education is a crucial

topic in present-day History of Religions,

its study focuses on contemporary

phenomena and is still undertheorised. The

present volume proposes a comprehensive

theoretical framework based on

interdisciplinary case studies of religious

education in pre-modern Europe.

Essays discuss chronicles, clarify ideas

of creation temporally understood, the

meaning of “simultaneous times,” or

simultaneity, and the concept of “notime.”

Essays also examine time in social

and political contexts, as measured by

clocks, as notated in music, as embodied

in memorializing stone, and as the subject

and medium of consciousness.

NEW BOOK SERIES

Studies in Global Slavery

Edited by Damian Alan Pargas,Leiden University,

and Jeff Fynn-Paul, Leiden University

Francisca Loetz, University of Zurich

Translated by Rosemary Selle

On the basis of the example of sexualized

violence in Zurich between 1500 and

1850, the study criticizes the reduction of

violence to illegitimate physical harm and

discusses how a history of interpersonal

violence in pre-modern Europe could be

further developed.

This series advances our understanding of the historical significance of slavery and postslavery

in any period and any geographical region. Designed to showcase the increasing

scholarly interest in global history and human bondage studies, this series considers

how slave and post-slave societies can be characterized across time and space, and how

slavery and human trafficking have served as a globalizing force in the development of

world civilizations. This exciting new series provides a venue for scholarly work—research

monographs and edited volumes—that advances our understanding of the history of

slavery and post-slavery in any period and any geographical region. It fills an important gap

in academic publishing and builds upon two relatively recent developments in historical

scholarship.

Studies in Global

Social History

Edited by Marcel van der Linden,

International Institute of Social History,

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Until recently, the North Atlantic perspective

dominated the mental world order:

the “modern” period was believed to have

started in Europe and North America and

to have spread gradually throughout the

rest of the world; the temporality of the

core area was considered to have defined

developmental periods elsewhere as well.

This Eurocentrism is now under fire, and

many attempts to circumvent it are in

progress. The Studies in Global Social History

figure within these new trends. Each

volume in this series addresses at least two

continents and aims to visualize contrasts

and similarities and to reveal long-distance

connections to demonstrate how our present

global society has materialized from

uneven and combined developments and

from interaction between acts “from above”

and “from below”.

Unfree Labor and Imperial

States in the Political Economy

of Capitalism, ca. 1500-1914

Edited by John Donoghue, Loyola

University Chicago, and Evelyn P.

Jennings, St. Lawrence University

Ethnicity and the Colonial State compares

the choices of community leaders in three

different West African groups (Wolof,

Temne, and Ewe), with regard to “selling”

their identifications to the colonial rulers.

The book thereby addresses ethnicity as a

factor in global history.

In China’s Social Insurance in the Twentieth

Century, Aiqun Hu develops a framework

of “interactive diffusion of global models”

in examining the history of China’s social

insurance since the 1910s. The book

covers both Nationalist- and Communistcontrolled

areas (1927-1949) and Taiwan

(1949-present).

Exploring the relationship between state

recruitment of unfree labor, capitalism’s

expansion, and imperial development,

Building the Atlantic Empires raises new

questions about how the history of

servitude and slavery transformed the

Atlantic world and beyond.

Edited by Jennifer Spinks

and Dagmar Eichberger

This volume brings together some of the

most exciting current scholarship on

these themes. This interdisciplinary and

geographically broad-ranging volume pays

tribute to the ground-breaking work of

Charles Zika.

In Memory Wars in the Low Countries, 1566-

1700 Jasper van der Steen explains how the

political exploitation of the public memory

of the Revolt in the Netherlands influenced

the formation of distinct ‘national’

identities in the Dutch Republic and the

Habsburg Netherlands.

In Poetry and Censorship Jennifer Helm

offers insight into motives and strategies of

Counter-Reformation censorship of poetry

in Italy. Materials of Roman censorial

authorities reveal why the control of poetry

and of its reception was crucial to Counter-

Reformation cultural politics.

Studies in the History

of Political Thought

Edited by Terence Ball, Arizona

State University, Jörn Leonhard,

Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg,

and Wyger Velema, University of

Amsterdam

Studies in the History of Political Thought

provides a forum for monographs on

the history of Western political thought

from antiquity to the present. While

exclusively focused on the historical study

of political ideas, the series does not

intend to promote a specific approach,

but will rather represent a broad and

varied methodological spectrum, ranging

from traditional history of political ideas

to the history of political concepts, the

“new history of political thought,” and

comparative and transnational studies of

political thought.

This peer reviewed book series aims to

become the international reference for

grounded on the trans-disciplinary – and

probably anti-disciplinary – dimension of

The Radical Machiavelli

Edited by Fillipo del Lucchese, Brunel

University, London, Fabio Frosini,

University of Urbino, and Vittorio

Morfino, Università di Milano-Bicocca

The Radical Machiavelli: Politics, Philosophy

and Language offers a partial and

even partisan reading of Machiavelli,

whose thought continues to divide

interpreters, forcing them to confront their

responsibility as contemporary thinkers in

a global society.

General Editor: Steven J. McMichael

The last 25 years have seen a strong growth

of interest in and study of the Franciscan

vision not only in areas of philosophy,

theology, and spirituality, but also in its

application to social, missionary and

pastoral work, art, liturgy and exegesis.

Building on the wealth of new material

emerging, this series addresses current

themes in interdisciplinary research on the

Franciscan movement from its foundation

down to the Catholic Reformation of the

late 16th century.

Visualising the

Edited by Eva Frojmovic,

University of Leeds

This book series is dedicated to innovative

and transdisciplinary scholarly work on

visualities and material cultures from

the end of antiquity to the Renaissance.

Since the editors desire to puncture

the European, even Western European

boundaries habitually drawn around

things medieval, the geographical and

chronological parameters would be

loose, to make it possible to examine the

migration of symbols, objects and practices

across global geographies and religious/

Middle Ages and modern medievalism.

Reassessing the Roles

of Medieval Art and

Edited by Therese Martin

In Imagining the Text, James Brown

examines ekphrasis, illuminated

manuscripts, and the changing notions of

courtly identity in Wirnt von Gravenberg’s

popular medieval German Arthurian

romance Wigalois.

During the Middle Ages, the head of St

John the Baptist was widely venerated. The

present study offers the unique key to the

Johannesschüssel as artifact, phenomenon,

phantasm and medium.

The twenty-four studies in this volume

propose a new approach to framing the

debate around the history of medieval art

and architecture to highlight the multiple

roles played by women, moving beyond

today’s standard division of artist from

patron.

This is a wide-ranging presentation of the

It considers what European families have in

common as well as their regional and local

characteristics, and illustrates the variety of

approaches currently being adopted.

This book studies the world of the Soviet

consumer and the specific problems, which

arose both for the consumer and the Soviet

state in a command economy of chronic

shortages. It concentrates on the latter half

of the Soviet period, but also the longue

durée of Russian consumerism is discussed.

In Machiavelli’s Art of Politics Alejandro

Bárcenas offers a reexamination of Niccolò

Machiavelli’s political thought in order to

propose a concise and historically accurate

portrayal of his ideas and intellectual

context.

Logos – the international journal of the

publication it has gained a reputation for

publishing insightful and clear-headed

articles about publishing, and this tradition

continues to the present day, with the

addition in recent years of academic

articles reflecting the growth in the

discipline of publishing studies.

The Diary of Heinrich Witt (1799-1892) is

the most extensive private diary written in

Latin America known to us today. Written

in English by a German migrant who lived

in Lima, it is a unique source for the history

of Peru, and for international trade and

migration.

Performances of Peace: Utrecht 1713 aims

to rethink the significance of the Peace

of Utrecht (1713) by exploring the nexus

between culture and politics.

The Decade of the Great War critically

reviews Japan’s diplomatic, military, and

transnational relations, demonstrating

the breadth of Japan’s new international

relations before and after WWI.

Written by people who, as second class

citizens in Maoist China, went to the

countryside to redeem their “original sin,”

Exiled Pilgrims tells the story of the authors’

struggle for physical and spiritual survival

against tremendous odds.

Rereading Modern Chinese History is a

collection of short essays on aspects of

the history of the Qing dynasty, a regime

dominated by Manchus that ruled China

from 1644 to 1911. Using sources from that

period and earlier, the book addresses key

themes on the nature of Qing rule.

Long-distance trade under Rome is wellunderstood.

But the importance of local

exchange has not been fully explored. The

volume investigates how inland regions

could become prosperous in late antiquity,

especially when not integrated in longrange

trading networks. Robust local

economies emerge, stimulated by both

taxation and local market systems.

Legal and informal institutions were

developed to secure persons and property,

resolve commercial disputes, raise capital

and share risk, promote fair dealing,

regulate agents and gather market

information. Law and Commerce in Pre-

Industrial Societies examines commerce, its

participants and these institutions through

the lens of nine pre-industrial societies

from hunter/gatherers to 18th century Qing

merchants.

In The Law of Nations in Early American

Foreign Policy, Willem Theo Oosterveld

provides the first general study of

international law as interpreted and

applied by the generation of the Founding

Fathers.

In Jews and Christians in Denmark Martin

Schwarz Lausten investigates how the

antijudaistic attitudes in Church and

society changed starting around 1100. While

some anti-Semitic movements arose later,

7,000 Danish Jews were able to escape to

Sweden with Christian assistance during

the German occupation.

In A History of Conversion to Islam in the

United States, Volume 1: White American

Muslims before 1975, Patrick D. Bowen offers

an account of white Muslims and Sufis and

the movements they produced between

1800 and 1975.

In Muslims in Interwar Europe, various

contributors argue that Muslims

constituted a group of engaged actors in

the European and international space of

that time.

In Qazaqlïq, or Ambitious Brigandage, and

the Formation of the Qazaqs Joo-Yup Lee

examines the formation of the Qazaqs

and other group identities within the

context of the role of the cossack/qazaqlïq

phenomenon in state formation in post-

Mongol Central Eurasia.

In The Wandering Throne of Solomon:

Objects and Tales of Kingship in the

Medieval Mediterranean Allegra Iafrate

analyzes the circulation of artifacts and

literary traditions related to king Solomon,

particularly among Christians, Jews and

Muslims, from the 10th to the 13th century.

This work argues that the Sistani Cycle of

Epics constitutes a genre of historiography,

retaining reflections of events of Iran’s

antiquity, notably the affairs of the Sistani

kingdom and its relationship to the

Parthian throne circa 1st century BCE- 2nd

century CE.

Arthur Upham Pope and A New Survey of

Persian Art re-addresses the role of the

American pioneer in the study of Persian

cultural heritage - Arthur Upham Pope

(1881–1969) - in the development of Persian

art scholarship and connoisseurship during

the twentieth century.

Transfer of Buddhism across Central

Asian Networks (7th to 13th Centuries), ed.

Carmen Meinert, offers a transregional and

transcultural vision for religious transfer

processes in Central Asian history. It

explores Buddhist localisations in the Tarim

basin, the Transhimalaya and Tibet.

This volume comprises fifteen articles on

the differing functions that purity, impurity,

pollution and related categories could

fulfil in Asian and European religions and

societies of the 3rd to 17th century c.E. They

focus processes of religious demarcation

and transfer.

In Transcendence and Sensoriness, scholars

of theology, philosophy, art, music,

and architecture, discuss questions of

transcendence, the human senses, and the

arts through case studies considered in a

broad theological framework of religious

aesthetics of the arts.

Images of Animal Sacrifice in

Archaic and Classical Greece

F.T. van Straten

From Temple to Church

Destruction and Renewal of Local

Cultic Topography in Late Antiquity

Edited by Johannes Hahn, Stephen

Emmel and Ulrich Gotter

Magical Practice in

the Latin West

Papers from the International

Conference held at the University of

Zaragoza, 30 Sept. – 1st Oct. 2005

This volume deals with the depictions of

animal sacrifice from ancient Greece, full

catalogues of which are included. The

relevant aspects of Greek sacrifice are

studied on the basis of an analysis and

interpretation of these representations,

combined with the pertinent textual data.

Destruction of temples and their

transformation into churches are

central symbols of change in religious

environment, socio-political system,

and public perception in late antiquity.

Archaeologists, historians, and historians

of religion seek an appropriate larger

perspective on the phenomenon “templedestruction”.

Most studies of Graeco-Roman magic

focus on the Greek texts. Stimulated by

important recent finds of Latin cursetablets,

this collection of essays for the first

time tries to define the nature and extent

of the originality of magical practice in the

Latin West

Steven J. Friesen

Based on the visual and textual evidence,

this volume concentrates on the artistic,

intellectual, religious, and socio-political

importance of divine images as media of

communication in the polytheistic cosmos

of ancient Greece and Rome.

This book is a collection of studies by

scholars Greek, Roman, Egyptian, and

early Christian religions on the topic

of divination. Its topics range from

necromancy to dice rolling, free-lance

diviners to Delphi, and includes treatments

from the Archaic period to Late Antiquity.

This is a case study of the Cult of the

Sebastoi that was established in the

city of Ephesus by the province of Asia

during the late first century CE. It served

as a prototypical manifestation of socioreligious

developments during the late first

and early second centuries in the Eastern

Mediterranean.
