Mit dem Prozess der Christianisierung entstand im Römischen Reich eine neue Art der gewaltsamen Auseinandersetzung: das religiös motivierte Vorgehen gegen Orte, Objekte oder Personen. Die radikalste Form dieser Aggression wandte sich gegen Heiligtümer des religiösen Gegners - Tempel, Synagogen oder Kirchengebäude. Die Folgen waren einschneidend: Der Angriff auf Kultorte forderte den Einsatz aller Institutionen des Reiches, vom Kaiser bis zu den städtischen Eliten. Mit der Machtverschiebung auf lokaler Ebene gelang es Bischöfen und religiösen Charismatikern, sich neben der Administration als neue Autoritäten zu etablieren. Die Beiträge analysieren die Perspektive des Imperiums und seiner Institutionen auf das Phänomen der religiösen Gewalt und das gewaltsame Vorgehen gegen Kultorte. Die Rolle der Gesetzgebung und das Verhältnis der Ebenen der kaiserlichen Verwaltung zueinander werden ebenso untersucht wie die Beziehung der staatlichen Institutionen zu den sich neu strukturierenden regionalen und lokalen Öffentlichkeiten. Zudem werden Handlungsspielräume auf regionaler und lokaler Ebene im Kontext der Erlasse und Gesetze bestimmt. Auf der Basis lokaler Fallstudien werden grundlegende Konfliktkonstellationen erörtert und jene Institutionen und Gruppen untersucht, welche die Konstellationen und Verlaufsformen der Konflikte maßgeblich bestimmten.

What do we mean when we talk about 'being Christian' in Late Antiquity? This volume brings together sixteen world-leading scholars of ancient Judaism, Christianity and, Greco-Roman culture and society to explore this question, in honour of the ground-breaking scholarship of Professor Gillian Clark. After an introduction to the volume's dedicatee and themes by Averil Cameron, the papers in Section I, `Being Christian through Reading, Writing and Hearing', analyse the roles that literary genre, writing, reading, hearing and the literature of the past played in the formation of what it meant to be Christian. The essays in Section II move on to explore how late antique Christians sought to create, maintain and represent Christian communities: communities that were both 'textually created' and 'enacted in living realities'. Finally in Section III, 'The Particularities of Being Christian', the contributions examine what it was to be Christian from a number of different ways of representing oneself, each of which raises questions about certain kinds of 'particularities', for example, gender, location, education and culture. Bringing together primary source material from the early Imperial period up to the seventh century AD and covering both the Eastern and Western Empires, the papers in this volume demonstrate that what it meant to be Christian cannot simply be taken for granted. 'Being Christian' was part of a continual process of construction and negotiation, as individuals and Christian communities alike sought to relate themselves to existing traditions, social structures and identities, at the same time as questioning and critiquing the past(s) in their present.

The Oxford Handbook of Late Antiquity offers an innovative overview of a period (c. 300-700 CE) that has become increasingly central to scholarly debates over the history of western and Middle Eastern civilizations. This volume covers such pivotal events as the fall of Rome, the rise of Christianity, the origins of Islam, and the early formation of Byzantium and the European Middle Ages. These events are set in the context of widespread literary, artistic, cultural, and religious change during the period. The geographical scope of this Handbook is unparalleled among comparable surveys of Late Antiquity; Arabia, Egypt, Central Asia, and the Balkans all receive dedicated treatments, while the scope extends to the western kingdoms, and North Africa in the West. Furthermore, from economic theory and slavery to Greek and Latin poetry, Syriac and Coptic literature, sites of religious devotion, and many others, this Handbook covers a wide range of topics that will appeal to scholars from a diverse array of disciplines. The Oxford Handbook of Late Antiquity engages the perennially valuable questions about the end of the ancient world and the beginning of the medieval, while providing a much-needed touchstone for the study of Late Antiquity itself.

The papers collected in this volume shift the focus away from "heretics" and "heresy" to heresiological discourse, by contextualizing the late antique Jewish and Christian groups that produced our extant literature. The contributors to the volume draw from multiple literary corpora and genres, bringing a variety of late antique perspective to explore the discursive construction of the Other. They unravel ethnic identities, and re-create the multiple voices textured in the dialogue between the "orthodox" and "heretical" writers.
