This volume developed from a session on ‘Community Heritage’ held at the inaugural conference of the Association of Critical Heritage Studies (ACHS), hosted by the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, in June 2012. The conference called on participants to challenge traditional concepts of heritage, to push boundaries and to embrace strategies for the active participation of the full range of stakeholders in cultural and natural heritage management. The contributions to this book do just that and explore, from a personal to an international scale, the intercultural and interdisciplinary dialogues surrounding the use, practice and management of both tangible and intangible heritage through case studies from across the globe.

Bringing together practitioners within archaeology, anthropology, urban planning, human geography, cultural resource management (CRM) and museology, the volume aims to build on the existing debate and reflect how heritage discourse is being increasingly re-theorised in terms of experience. While exploring the organic, evolving and unpredictable nature of working with communities, the volume focuses on emerging discourse which represents a shifting balance of power as once-marginalised stakeholders are taking control of the constitution, representation and management of heritage as they experience it, both with or without ‘professional facilitation’. Thus, by critically engaging with heritage studies and acknowledging the benefits of diversifying the voices involved in the representation and management of the past, the volume calls on readers to embrace a view of cultural and natural heritage in which meanings and notions of best practice can shift over time and space.

Jacob of Sarug's Homilies on Praise at Table

Edited and Translated by Jeff W. Childers
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0605-5
Part of a series of fascicles containing the bilingual Syriac-English editions of Saint Jacob of Sarug’s homilies, this volume contains his homilies on Praise at Table. These homilies offer a glimpse into the efforts of one late antique author to construct distinctly Christian meaning from the experience of communal meal-sharing. The Syriac text is fully vocalized, and the translation is annotated with a commentary and biblical references. The volume is one of the fascicles of Gorgias Press’s The Metrical Homilies of Mar Jacob of Sarug, which, when complete, will contain all of Jacob’s surviving sermons. Recognized as a saint by both Chalcedonian and non-Chalcedonian Christians alike, Jacob of Sarug (d. 521) produced many narrative poems that have rarely been translated into English. Of his reported 760 metrical homilies, only about half survive.

Myth, Text, and History at Sparta

Edited by Thomas Figueira
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0595-9
Three studies that offer close readings concerning the interaction of the source material on Spartan history with the unfolding of actual historical events. These contributions take the position that not only political, but also social, policies at Sparta, as well as the historical actors giving them shape, were intensely─and to an unusual degree─influenced by myth, tradition, and popular memory about the Laconian past.

Averroes, the Decisive Treatise

The Connection Between Islamic Religious Law and Philosophy
Edited with an Introduction by Massimo Campanini
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0638-3
The Decisive Treatise is perhaps the most controversial work of Averroes (Ibn Rushd, 1126-1198) and belongs to a trilogy which boldly represent the philosophical contribution to Islamic theology of this famous Andalusian commentator on Aristotle. The Decisive Treatise is a fatwa (a legal opinion) that the judge, Averroes, promulgated for his fellow Malikite jurists in order to demonstrate that the study of philosophy is not only licit from the point of view of religious law, but even mandatory for the skilled people. However, many subjects are dealt with in this comparatively short book: An epistemology aimed to show that philosophical truth and religious truth are not in contradiction; a sociology of knowledge pointing out that humans are classified in three classes (philosophers, theologians, common folk); a Qur’anic hermeneutics suggesting how to approach philosophically the Holy Book in agreement with religious requirements and linguistic rules.
