    Edinburgh Byzantine Studies explores new theoretical and cross-cultural approaches to
    Byzantium. These innovative readings will draw on sociological methods as well as theorydriven and comparative approaches to highlight the connectivity of Byzantine Studies. The

    of cultures by looking at the historical, textual, linguistic, material, archaeological and visual
    remains of medieval Byzantium and its neighbours.

    BYZANTIUM

    Byzantine Military Tactics in Syria and
    Mesopotamia in the 10th Century
    A Comparative Study

    Georgios Theotokis, Boğaziçi University, Istanbul

    The first comprehensive history of Byzantine warfare
    in the tenth century
    This book examines the strategies and military tactics of
    the Byzantines and their enemies in Eastern Anatolia,
    Syria and in Upper Mesopotamia in the tenth century.
    This period of conflict is difficult to define: it was too
    inactive to be called a ‘war’ but too active to be called a
    ‘cold war’. Nevertheless, it was a ‘war’, even if it lacked
    the numerous pitched battles or protracted sieges that
    defined other periods or other operational theatres
    of war. This study examines the way the Byzantines
    innovated and adapted their strategies and tactics to
    those of their enemies in the East, giving a rich picture of
    tenth-century Byzantine warfare.

    PERSIA

    Archaeology of Empire in
    Achaemenid Egypt

    Henry P. Colburn, University of Southern California
    A study of the material culture of Egypt during the
    period of Achaemenid Persian rule, c. 526-404 BCE
    Previous studies have characterised Achaemenid rule of Egypt
    either as ephemeral and weak or oppressive and harsh. These
    characterisations, however, are based on the perceived lack of
    evidence for this period, filtered through ancient and modern
    preconceptions about the Persians. Henry Colburn challenges
    these views by assembling and analyzing the archaeological
    remains from this period, including temples, tombs, irrigation
    works, statues, stelae, sealings, drinking vessels and coins.
    By looking at the decisions made about material culture - by
    Egyptians, Persians and others - it becomes possible to see both
    how the Persians integrated Egypt into their empire and the
    full range of experiences people had as a result.

    Zoroastrian Scholasticism in
    Late Antiquity

    The Pahlavi version of the Yasna Haptaŋhāiti
    Arash Zeini, Freie Universität Berlin

    Examines Zoroastrian exegesis by investigating a late
    antique translation of an ancient Iranian text
    In late antiquity, Zoroastrian exegetes set out to translate their
    ancient canonical texts into Middle Persian, the vernacular of
    their time. Although undated, these translations, commonly
    known as the Zand, are often associated with the Sasanian era
    (224–651 ce). Despite the many challenges the Zand offers to
    us today, it is indispensable for investigations of late antique
    exegesis of the Avesta, a collection of religious and ritual texts
    commonly regarded as the Zoroastrians’ scripture.

    Series Editors: Mirko Canevaro, Edward Harris and David Lewis
    edinburghuniversitypress.com/series/nagih

    This series will showcase new trends in the study of Greek political, legal, social and
    economic institutions and institutional history. It will create a fruitful dialogue between
    Greek institutional historians and the political and social sciences – and in particular the New
    Institutionalisms.
    Books in the series will go beyond a traditional approach to offer theoretical and methodological
    reflection on the importance of institutions and on how we should study them. They will appeal
    to Greek historians and to political and social scientists alike.
    Your book should…


    Be 80-90,000 words long and may include maps and illustrations



    Be written at a level suitable for advanced undergraduates, postgraduates and academics
    working within Classics and Ancient History Departments and in Politics and the Social
    Sciences fostering dialogue between the disciplines



    Integrate social, political and economic history through a common focus on institutions



    Go beyond traditional institutional approaches by investigating Greek institutions as
    organic systems of rules, practices and ideas/discourses

    If you have a proposal suitable for this series we’d love to hear from

    GREECE

    Ancient Greek History and
    Contemporary Social Science
    Edited by Mirko Canevaro, Andrew Erskine, both at University of
    Edinburgh, Benjamin Gray, Birkbeck, University of London and Josiah
    Ober, Stanford University

    Defines the cutting-edge of scholarship on ancient Greek
    history employing methods from social science
    There is a long history of successful engagement between social
    science and classical studies. Social science has been a source of
    new and productive approaches to understanding ancient Greece,
    while classical Greek history and culture has been a touchstone for
    social theorists since the 19th century. This new collection of essays
    surveys the current state of the new field of ‘social science Greek
    history’ and demonstrates the potential of this interdisciplinary
    field.
    Substantial bodies of work that have contributed in fundamental
    ways to our understanding of classical Greece and its cultural
    legacy were produced in 20th century, by employing methods
    from anthropology, sociology, and psychology. More recently,
    the use of quantitative methods and formal theory, drawn from
    contemporary political science, economics, and sociology, has led
    to a new understanding of ancient Greek economic and political
    development. Meanwhile, normative considerations, drawn
    from contemporary political philosophy, have led to a richer
    understanding of Greek political thought and Greek institutional
    innovations – notably including democracy and the rule of law.
    • Introduces a new field within classical studies
    • Demonstrates the value of robustly interdisciplinary scholarship
    • Shows the practical value of social science for ancient history
    • Highlights the importance of Greek case studies for social
    science
    • Contributors include Sara Forsdyke, David Lewis, Robert Fleck
    and Andrew Hanssen

    LITERATURE

    The Edinburgh Companion to
    Sidonius Apollinaris
    Edited by Gavin Kelly, University of Edinburgh and
    Joop Van Waarden, Radboud University Nijmegen

    A multidisciplinary survey of Sidonius Apollinaris
    and his work
    Sidonius Apollinaris, c. 430 – c. 485, poet and letter-writer,
    aristocrat, administrator and bishop, is one of the most distinct

    Apollinaris gives a full account of all aspects concerning his life
    and works, including past and current scholarship as well as
    new research developments.
    This substantial and significant piece of scholarship is divided
    into six thematic sections covering his social, political,
    linguistic, literary and prosopographical context as well as
    extensive manuscript and reception research.
    Based on entirely new scholarly work this interdisciplinary
    book combines the utility of a key research tool for studying
    Sidonius as well as a significant offering of wholly new
    research.
