The Roman Empire at Bay is the only one volume history of the critical years 180-395 AD, which saw the transformation of the Roman Empire from a unitary state centred on Rome, into a new polity with two capitals and a new religion—Christianity. The book integrates social and intellectual history into the narrative, looking to explore the relationship between contingent events and deeper structure. It also covers an amazingly dramatic narrative from the civil wars after the death of Commodus through the conversion of Constantine to the arrival of the Goths in the Roman Empire, setting in motion the final collapse of the western empire. The new edition takes account of important new scholarship in questions of Roman identity, on economy and society as well as work on the age of Constantine, which has advanced significantly in the last decade, while recent archaeological and art historical work is more fully drawn into the narrative. At its core, the central question that drives The Roman Empire at Bay remains, what did it mean to be a Roman and how did that meaning change as the empire changed? Updated for a new generation of students, this book remains a crucial tool in the study of this period.

This essay deals with a classical theme in ancient history: the relationships between Rome and the Parthian and Sasanian worlds. What is original is the perspective from which these relationships are investigated, i.e. starting from the analysis of titles apparently used in a non-fitting context on both sides of the border. A very Roman concept, the consularitas, Greek hypateia, is analysed on the one hand in its explicit attribution to the Edessean sovereigns, on the other hand in its implicit attribution to the kings of Armenia and afterwards to the 'Chiefs' of Palmyra. The very Iranian title of 'King of Kings' is also investigated here as unsuitably attributed to Odainath of Palmyra and his son Vaballath, together with an analysis of the very Iranian title argabetes of a very powerful Palmyrenean man, Vorod. This essay is completed by a documentary update on another Iranian title, pasgriba, 'heir to the throne, crownprince', attested in the royal families of Edessa and Hatra, whose meaning has been deeply investigated elsewhere. The above mentioned subjects evidently show how tight the bonds linking the two sides of the river Euphrates used to be, bonds that are not only cultural in a general way, but more concretely also institutional and political.

The commentary confirms what Porphyry notes in his Life of Plotinus, that the Enneads are indeed full of hidden Stoic and Peripatetic doctrines. Appendices contain discussions of Plotinus' view on suicide, and his use of St. Ambrose's sermon On Jacob and the Good Life."--BOOK JACKET.

This comprehensive study offers a critical, comparative analysis of the sources available on Bardaisan and a reinterpretation of his thought. The study highlights the profound points of contact between Bardaisan, Origen, and their schools; the role of Plato's Timaeus and Middle Platonism in Bardaisan's thought, and Stoicism. Bardaisan's thought emerges as a deeply Christian one, depending on the exegesis of Scripture read in the light of Greek philosophy. Positive ancient sources present him as a deacon or even a presbyter, as an author of refutations of Marcionism and Gnosticism, and as a confessor of the faith during persecution.
