The glittering courts of the Byzantine Empire (A.D. 330-1453) have long been admired for their
rich tradition of manuscript illumination. The prominent use of gold, a striking sense of naturalism,
and a distinctive spiritual character were among the widely celebrated aspects of Byzantine art in
the Middle Ages. These qualities inspired artists and patrons in other Christian locales, including
western Europe, Armenia, and Ethiopia. Primarily drawn from the Getty Museum's collection, this
exhibition also features important loans in partnership with "HEAVEN AND EARTH: ART OF
BYZANTIUM FROM GREEK COLLECTIONS", on view at the Getty Villa from April 9 through
August 25, 2014.

[8]. BYZANTINE STUDIES SYMPOSIUM: "KNOWING BODIES, PASSIONATE SOULS:
SENSE PERCEPTIONS IN BYZANTIUM" (WASHINGTON, D.C., DUMBARTON OAKS, 2527.04.2014)
Da: Aisbnews ([email protected])
KNOWING BODIES, PASSIONATE SOULS: SENSE PERCEPTIONS IN BYZANTIUM
Byzantine Studies Symposium, April 25-27, 2014
Symposiarchs: Susan Ashbrook Harvey, Brown University and Margaret Mullett, Dumbarton Oaks.
Byzantine culture was notably attuned to a cosmos of multiple domains: material, immaterial;
bodily, intellectual, physical, spiritual; human, divine. Despite a prevailing discourse to the
contrary, the Byzantine world found its bridges between domains most often in sensory modes of
awareness. These different domains were concretely perceptible; further, they were encountered
daily amidst the mundane no less than the exalted. Icons, incense, music, sacred architecture, ritual
activity; saints, imperial families, persons at prayer; hymnography, ascetical or mystical literature:
in all of its cultural expressions, the Byzantines excelled in highlighting the intersections between
human and divine realms through sensory engagement (whether positive or negative). Byzantinists
have been slow to look at the operations of the senses in Byzantium, especially those of seeing, its
relation to the other senses, and phenomenological approaches in general. More recently work on
smell and hearing has followed, and yet the areas of taste and touch -- the most universal and the
most necessary of the senses -- are still largely uncharted. Nor has much been done to explore how
Byzantines viewed the senses, or how they envisaged the sensory interactions with their world. A
map of the connections between of sense-perceptions and other processes (of perception, memory,
visualization) in the Byzantine brain has still to be sketched out. How did the Byzantines describe,
narrate or represent the senses at work? It is hoped to further studies of the operations of individual
senses in Byzantium in the context of all the senses, and their place in what the Byzantines thought
about perception and cognition. Recent work on dreaming, on memory and on the emotions has
made advances possible, and collaborative experiments between Byzantinists and neurological
scientists open further approaches. The happy coincidence of a Dumbarton Oaks Garden and
Landscape symposium on 'Senses in the landscape: non-visual experiences' and of a forthcoming
exhibition at the Walters Art Museum on the five senses enable some cross-cultural comparisons to
be made involving gardens in Islamic Spain, Hebrew hymnography, Syriac wine-poetry,
Mediterranean ordure, and Romanesque and Gothic precious objects—that were not just looked at
but also touched, smelled, heard. Architects, musicologists, art historians, archaeologists,
philologists, all can contribute approaches to the revelation of the Byzantine sensorium.

COLLOQUIUM:
"THE MEDITERRANEAN CITY AND ITS RULERS: A COMPARISON OF BYZANTIUM,
ISLAM, AND WESTERN CHRISTENDOM IN THE HIGH MIDDLE AGES" (PRINCETON,
26-27.04.2014)
The High Middle Ages were a period of profound transformation for the Christian cities of the
central and western Mediterranean. However, it has generally been thought that the urban centers of
the Islamic and Byzantine worlds to the south and east did not share in the same economic,
political, and cultural developments. Most interregional studies carried out so far have promoted
this understanding of the period by considering the "classic example" of the cities of northern Italy
solely in the context of the situation on the other side of the Alps. Otherwise, attention has tended to
be focused on specific polities within each of the three Mediterranean macro-regions, to the neglect
of the picture across macro-regions. There has been no in-depth comparison of how cities were
ruled in the various lands encircling the Great Sea, despite the existence of a strong common
Roman heritage, as well as evidence for extensive interaction through long-distance trade,
pilgrimage, diplomacy, and warfare. This conference will begin to undertake such an analysis,
highlighting similarities and differences in governmental institutions, civic identity, and
revolutionary activity throughout the Mediterranean. The event is intended as a pilot establishing a
network of scholars. The next meeting will be held at the University of Edinburg in 2105 and is
being organized by Dr. Gianluca Raccagni, Chancellor's Fellow in History.

Russian State University for Humanities. The second conference was held in the People's
Friendship University of Russia in 2010. Both research meetings gathered specialists on Islamic and
Russian studies from leading Russian and foreign university centers. They considered a wide range
of problems related to interregional and interdisciplinary study of Islamic cultural and theological
legacy, past and present development of Muslim societies, as well as methodological and
organizational issues of Islamic studies at the age of modern globalization. Initially it was decided
to make disciplinary scope of the conference as wide as possible to enable productive
interdisciplinary dialogue between historians, anthropologists, sociologists, philologists,
philosophers, political scientists and other specialists involved in the study of Muslim societies
throughout the world whose interests are close to the research repertoire examined in the
conferences.
Reaching its third conference "The World of Islam" aims to foster high-quality, original and
innovative research, both theoretical and empirical, in history and across the social sciences on key
topics related to Islam and Muslim societies;
to cover all Muslim regions as widely as possible with topics related to Islam, including their
mutual relationships and relations with Russia's Muslims;
to focus on historical, cultural, economic and socio-political issues;
to enable research collaboration between specialists in related fields of human and social sciences
whose study focuses on Islam;
to encourage publication and dissemination of this research in edited volumes, thematic issues of
learned journals, and the "The World of Islam" Working Papers.
Working languages are Russian, English and Arabic. There will be no translation or interpretation
services available.
STRUCTURE
The "The World of Islam" 2014 consists of 8 workshops. Each workshop is directed by one-two or
three workshop directors and on average includes 20 participants. The participants of each
workshop meet in four sessions for a total of approximately fourteen hours over two days. They
discuss papers, general topics, ways to publish the papers, and how to continue collaborative efforts.
Plenary and social events are organised during the MRM. In addition, two or three more thematic
round tables might be held during the conference. The eventual list of workshops and round tables
will be available on the Mardjani Foundation website http://www.mardjani.ru/ru/projectsnews/conference.html by February 20 2014.
Applications for listening participants are now open.

"DOCUMENTI LATINI E GRECI DEL CONTE RUGGERO I DI CALABRIA E SICILIA"
Edizione critica a cura di Julia Becker.

365 p. -- ISBN 978-88-8334-747-4
Dopo la conquista della Calabria meridionale e della Sicilia (fine dell'XI secolo), il conte Ruggero I
si concentro' sul consolidamento del potere all'interno dei propri domini. Attraverso la
riorganizzazione dell'amministrazione e delle strutture ecclesiastiche Ruggero pose le basi per lo
sviluppo della monarchia normanna nel Mezzogiorno.
Nonostante la sua importanza storica mancavano finora una raccolta e un'edizione critica dei
documenti da lui prodotti: l'ultimo tentativo di pubblicare gran parte dei diplomi risale ai secoli
XVIII-XIX. Tale situazione documentaria ha contribuito a far si' che la figura del primo conte di
Sicilia sia stata oggetto di scarso interesse storiografico. Il libro raccoglie per la prima volta tutti i
documenti greci e latini di Ruggero, alcuni dei quali inediti. Attraverso un apparato critico e un
dettagliato commento diplomatico e contenutistico di ogni documento il libro apre la strada a
possibili nuovi studi sulla storia siculo-normanna.

[2]. SUMMER COURSE 2014: GREEK PALAEOGRAPHY AND CODICOLOGY (UPPSALA,
JULY 2014; APPLICATION DEADLINE: 17.03.2014)
Da: Barbara Crostini ([email protected])
During the first half of summer 2014 we will give a course on Greek Palaeography and Codicology:
To Read and Study the Ancient Book 7,5 ECTS (course plan). The course is a master course and
given in English.
The course will introduce students to the development of Greek writing techniques and materials
from Late Antiquity to the Renaissance. It will also practically prepare the student to analyse and
describe a medieval manuscript from the palaeographical and codicological points of view by
providing the terminology and the reference materials used for such work.
Further it will survey the contemporary approaches to book conservation and the digital resources
that are transforming the study of manuscripts.
The studies will begin with a self-study period followed by c. 10 days of seminars in Uppsala (the
first two weeks of July) and concluding with a week for writing the final essay.
HOW TO APPLY:

Profiles
Profile 1. B1. Cultural backgrounds of the Greek Christian exegesis
This profile is about exploring how Christian writers of the first four centuries used notions and
practices of the Greek world (edition, theory of interpretation, modes of argumentation, philosophy)
to suit their exegetical and doctrinal works. Concerning the texts of the Apostolic Fathers and
apologists, the research could focus on the recovery of forms of Greek literature and rationality
found in previously independent documents, now unified. The culture of Irenaeus of Lyon could be
a research topic in this context. Alexandrian writers like Clement and Origen especially require
some attention, considering in particular the newly found original pieces of Origen on the Psalms.
The investigation could be expanded to the use of logic in the theological controversies of the fourth
century.
Profile 2. B2. Food and religion in the Mediterranean world: from polytheistic to monotheistic
religions
This research will contribute to the program jointly supported by the UMR Orient et Mediterranee
and the Labex RESMED on "Medicine and Food in Antiquity", in line with:
1- the existing research on "the Syriac version of the Treaty On food composed by Hunain ibn
Ishaq" (ERC-FLORIENTAL project led by R. Hawley);
2- a programme of the units of research "Greek Medicine" and "Pharaonic Worlds" on "Food
preservation" (international conference held in May 17, 2013);
3- a conference scheduled in April 2014 led by Herve' Monchot and Beatrice Caseau on "Prohibited
foods in religions".
The goal is to focus on dietary practices in a broad sense, to study the links between religion and
food from production to consumption, to show the continuities or ruptures between different
cultural and religious traditions of the Mediterranean world.
Some topics are proposed:
- Rites and practices developed around growing plants and harvesting (cereals, herbs, etc.), the role
of incantations;
- Animal sacrifice and rituals of slaughter, distribution of meat (to priests, warriors, etc.);
- Methods of food preservation (salting, drying, wine making, etc.)
- Distinctive diets (men, women, children), food for gods and food for men, recipes (cooking,
pharmacology, magic, etc.), diet interdictions, deviant behaviours (anthropophagy for instance).
Profile 3. C1. Music, ritual, sociability in the area of the former Ottoman Empire
In the area of the former Ottoman Empire, festive and musical sociability is mainly called
"muhabbet", literally "love" (from Arabic, as "agape" in French comes from Greek), an intimate and
domestic form of some institutional rituals such as the "djem" of the Alevi-Bektashi. Other names
are also used to designate these meetings such as "yaranlik", literally "the appointment of friends",
from Persian "yar", "friend", "(the) beloved one". Lawful or unlawful consumption of alcohol (a
part of the ritual in the Bektashi culture) may take place during these festive meetings which often
deal with micro-politics as well, according to the contents of the poems that are sung. We invite
those studying these "interaction rituals" across the area of the former Ottoman Empire to submit an
application.
Profile 4. C1. Religious festivals in the Mediterranean in Late Antiquity and the early Middle Ages
(1st to 10th century).
Are invited to present a proposal, postdoctoral students interested to work on religious festivals of
the Late Antique and early mediaeval period. Among the projects that fall in this profile, we include
those that address the issue of participation in religious celebrations of members of another religion
or another group of the same religion, eg Christians' participation in Jewish holidays or pagan
festivals, the attendance of heretics at religious festivals of communities who proclaim themselves
Orthodox, the participation of Muslims in Christian holidays. Is also included the study of
restrictions that sources mention about this participation. Will also be considered for this profile
those who are interested in aspects of sociability and social practices such as food, songs and dances
that took place during these festivals. The successful candidate will participate in the organization
of a conference and share editorial work on the themes of religious sociability.
Profile 5. C2. Religions and social practices: mutual assistance in multireligious societies
This profile is about studying mutual aid between social groups in urban areas of the Mediterranean
in medieval times. Who are the social actors, donators or receivers? What is their economic level
and their religious and political position? One might wonder whether a prior relationship is
necessary in order to put in place a system of mutual aid. What do these practices reveal about
sociability? Once established, do they change social relationships?
How does the assistance to the needy function in various communities? What are the institutional
supports? What is the implication of political power in these social practices, in regard to the
confession of the dominant group or of the minorities?
Quantitative issues should be explored (such as capital flows or interest), but they will not be the
ultimate goal of this research. Economic factors will be treated as social indicators. What are the
prohibitions, the limits and transgressions at work thay one may discover through such a research?
How can the study of this phenomenon enhance our knowledge of multireligious societies?

[4]. ONLINE DATABASE: "INSCRIPTIONS OF ISRAEL/PALESTINE"
Da: Aisbnews ([email protected])
The Inscriptions of Israel/Palestine (IIP) is a premier open-access epigraphic database directed by
Professor Michael Satlow of Brown University, begun already in 1996. The goal of the project is to
digitize the approximately 15,000 published inscriptions from Israel/Palestine, over a broad
temporal range, from the Persian Period to the Islamic Conquest (i.e. 500 BCE - 640 CE);
approximately 1,500 inscriptions have already been entered. What distinguishes this site from
others of similar scope is the multiple languages included: Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek, and Latin. One
can search the database in any of these languages, or their English translations (the project's own);
by content (e.g., "synagogue" or "church" for inscriptions in synagogues or churches); or by
accompanying figures (e.g. cross). Similarly, one can browse by place, date, inscription genre,
physical medium, language (including multiple languages such as Aramaic and Greek), and, finally,
religion (Jewish, Christian, Pagan, but currently no Samaritan). This powerful tool allows for
tracking various expressions (e.g., "one God"), and more generally, epigraphic practices, across the
communities of Israel/Palestine. In short, the site is a major resource for the study of the religions of
Late Antiquity.
