The Roman eastern frontier and the Persian Wars (AD 226-363) : a documentary history by Michael H Dodgeon( Book )

32 editions published between 1990 and 2003 in English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The crisis of the third century saw Rome not only embroiled in contests of succeeding short-lived Emperors, but assailed by an increasing variety of hostile peoples from outside its frontiers. Owing to the complex racial interplay of this period, the sources for its history have to be compiled from a wide variety of sources. The least adequate are those in Latin, the imperial lives of the Historia Augusta . These have to be supplemented by the Greek chronicles of Zosimus and John Malalas of Antioch, as well as the Armenian history of Moses of Chorene, the Arabic History of the Arabs of Al-Tabari, as well as inscriptions in Greek, Latin, Hebrew, Syrian and other languages. This volume collects these diverse sources for the first time in English translation, and will be a uniquely valuable resource for scholars working on a period of Roman history that is attracting increasing attention
Constantine : history, historiography, and legend( Book )

24 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The emperor Constantine, the first Christian emperor and founder of Constantinople, has been the subject of scholarly controversy for centuries. In this volume, the contributors examine the reign of Constantine from a variety of angles: historical, historiographical and mythical in order to reveal the various visions and representations of the emperor, from saint and patron of the western church to imperial prototype."--Jacket
Manichaean texts from the Roman Empire( Book )

13 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Founded by Mani (c. AD 216-276), a Syrian visionary ... who lived in Persian Mesopotamia, Manichaeism spread rapidly into the Roman Empire in the third and fourth centuries AD and became one of the most persecuted heresies under Christian Roman emperors. The religion established missionary cells in Syria, Egypt, North Africa and Rome and has in Augustine of Hippo the most famous of its converts. The study of the religion in the Roman Empire has benefited from discoveries of genuine Manichaean texts from Medinet Madi and from the Dakhleh Oasis in Egypt, as well as successful decipherment of the Cologne Mani-Codex which gives an autobiography of the founder in Greek. This first ever single-volume collection of sources for this religion, which draws from material mostly unknown to English-speaking scholars and students, offers in translation genuine Manichaean texts from Greek, Latin and Coptic

Medieval Christian and Manichaean remains from Quanzhou (Zayton) by Samuel N. C Lieu( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Better known to Western medieval travelers as Zayton, Quanzhou in Fujian was China's main port and also the terminus of the maritime Silk Road. The city was home to a cosmopolitan population especially when China was under Mongol rule (ca. 1280-1368 CE). Italian visitors to and inhabitants of the city included Marco Polo, Odoric of Pordenone and Andrew of Perugia. The city had a significant Christian population, both Catholic and Church of the East (Nestorian), and the nearby town of Jinjiang has to this day in its neighbourhood a Manichaean shrine housing a unique statue of Mani as the Buddha of Light. These religious communities left a wealth of art on stone which first came to light in the mid-twentieth century but is still very little known and studied outside China. This volume containing over 200 illustrations (many in full colour) is the work of a team of scholars from Australian universities in collaboration with the major museums in Quanzhou and Jinjiang and is the first major work on this unique material in a Western language

Between Rome and China : history, religions and material culture of the Silk Road by Union académique internationale( Book )

5 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains a key study on sericulture as well as on the conduct of the trade in silk between China and the Roman Near East using archaeological and literary evidence. The eight studies in this volume by established and emerging scholars range geographically and chronologically from the Greek Kingdom of Bactria of the 2nd century BCE to the Uighur Kingdoms of Karabalgasun in Mongolia and Qočo in Xinjiang of the 8th-9th centuries CE. It contains a key study on sericulture as well on the conduct of the trade in silk between China and the Roman Near East using archaeological as well as literary evidence. Other topics covered include Sogdian religious art, the role of Manichaeism as a Silk Road religion par excellence, the enigmatic names for the Roman Empire in Chinese sources and a multi-lingual gazetteer of place- and ethnic names in Pre-Islamic Central Asia which will be an essential reference tool for researchers. The volume also contains an author and title index to all the Silk Road Studies volumes published up to 2014. The broad ranging theme covered by this volume should appeal to a wider public fascinated by the history of the Silk Road and wishing to be informed of the latest state of research. Because of the centrality of the topics covered by this study, the volume could serve as a basic reading text for university courses on the history of the Silk Road

Texts of Greek and Latin authors on the Far East : from the 4th c. B.C.E. to the 14th c. C.E. by George Cœdès( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume comprises a unique collection of Greek and Latin texts containing references to the Far East. Compiled by George Coedes (1886-1969) and published by him in 1910, these well-selected writings have waited until now for an English translation. The texts range from `Ctesias' in the Fourth Century BCE to Byzantine writers of the 14th Century CE like Nicephorus Gregoras. There are allusions in literary works, both prose and verse, as well as extracts from geographers and historians, some tangential, others giving in-depth descriptions. Even when these are based on second or third hand information they are the basis for any study of the Far East seen through Western eyes. Coedes collected his information very thoroughly and his presentation of the material betokens a sound grasp of all the highly diverse though related literature. The Greek and Latin texts in this volume have been translated direct from the original languages by John Sheldon with an introductory essay by
