From Augustus to Constantine, the Roman Empire in the Near East expanded step by step, southward to the Red Sea and eastward across the Euphrates to the Tigris. In a remarkable work of interpretive history, Fergus Millar shows us this world as it was forged into the Roman provinces of Judea, Arabia, Mesopotamia, and Syria. His book conveys the magnificent sweep of history as well as the rich diversity of peoples, religions, and languages that intermingle in the Roman Near East

The crowd in Rome in the late Republic by Fergus Millar ( Book )
20 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 661 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Crowd in Rome in the Late Republic explores the consequences of a democracy in which public office could only be gained by direct election by the people. And while the Senate could indeed debate public matters, advise other officeholders, and make some administrative decisions, it could not legislate. An officeholder who wanted to pass a law had to step out of the Senate-house and propose it to the people in the Forum. In an expansion and revision of his Thomas Spencer Jerome lectures, Fergus Millar explores the development of the Roman Republic, which by its final years had come to cover most of Italy. To exercise their rights, voters had to come to Rome (or to live in or near the city as about one third of them did) and to meet in the Forum. Millar takes the period from 80 to 50 B.C., the dictatorship of Sulla to Caesar's crossing of the Rubicon, and shows how crowd politics was central to the great changes that took place year after year. The volume will interest general readers, as well as students of politics and Roman history. Technical terms are explained, and foreign words are kept to a minimum

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A Greek Roman Empire : power and belief under Theodosius II (408/450) by Fergus Millar ( Book )
13 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the first half of the fifth century, the Latin-speaking part of the Roman Empire suffered vast losses of territory to barbarian invaders. But in the Greek-speaking half of the eastern Mediterranean, with its capital at Constantinople, there existed a stable and successful system, using Latin as its official language, but communicating with its subjects in Greek. This book takes an inside look at how this system worked in the long reign of the pious Christian Emperor Theodosius II (408-50), and analyzes its largely successful defense of its frontiers, its internal coherence, and its relations with its subjects, with a flow of demands and suggestions traveling up the hierarchy to the Emperor, and a long series of laws, often set out in elaborately self-justificatory detail, addressed by the Emperor, through his officials, to the people. Above all, this book focuses on the Imperial mission to promote the unity of the Church, the State's involvement in intensely debated doctrinal questions, and the calling by the Emperor of two major Church Councils at Ephesus, in 431 and 449. Between the Law codes and the acts of the Church Councils, the material illustrating the workings of government and the involvement of State and Church, is incomparably richer, more detailed, and more vivid than for any previous period."--BOOK JACKET

Handbook of Jewish literature from late antiquity, 135-700 CE by Eyal Ben-Eliyahu ( Book )
6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"From major seminal works like the Mishnah or the Palestinian and Babylonian Talmuds, to Biblical commentaries, translations of Biblical books into Aramaic or relatively little-known mystical, liturgical or apocalyptic writings, here is a complete guide to the rich tradition of Jewish literature in the second to seventh centuries of the Common Era. Each work is described in a succinct and clearly structured entry which covers its contents, dating, language and accessibility (or otherwise) in print or online. The aim throughout is to cover all of this literature and to answer the following questions. What Jewish literature, written either in Hebrew or Aramaic, has survived? What different genres of such literature are there? What printed texts, or translations into any modern language, or commentaries (either in Hebrew or a European language) are there? And, for those who want to enquire further, what are the manuscripts on which modern editions are based? This handbook will be of value to scholars and students of Jewish Studies and historians of Late Antiquity, as well as scholars in neighbouring disciplines, such as Near Eastern history or Theology."--
