Alexandrian philosopher and theologian John Philoponus (c.490-c.575), also known as John the Grammarian, wrote several philosophical works (surviving in Greek) mostly pertaining to the criticism of certain Aristotelian doctrines, but also a number of works dealing with theology, and these are generally known only in Syriac translation. This volume is concerned with the latter category of Philoponus’ works. Sanda offers an introduction, the Syriac texts edited from Vatican and British Museum manuscripts, and Latin translations; in addition, there is a helpful section entitled “Argumentum Opusculorum” which gives a detailed outline of each of the works included here, namely: 1. Diaitetes, or Arbiter, 2. Epitome of the Diaitetes, 3. Answering Doubts, 4. Treatise to Sergius, 5. Treatise on Difference, Number, and Division, and 6. Letter to Justinian. This collection of texts will be of great interest to students and scholars of philosophy and theology in Late Antiquity, as well as to those working in Syriac literature and Greek-Syriac translations.

Calling Out to Isis

The Enduring Nubian Presence at Philae
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0715-1
The expansion of the cult of the goddess Isis throughout the Mediterranean world demonstrates the widespread appeal of Egyptian religion in the Greco-Roman period. In this monograph, Ashby focuses on an oft-neglected population in studies of this phenomenon: Nubian worshipers. Through examination of prayer inscriptions and legal agreements engraved on temple walls, as well as Ptolemaic royal decrees and temple imagery, Ashby sheds new light on the involvement of Nubians in the Egyptian temples of Lower Nubia, and further draws comparisons between Nubian cultic practices and the Meroitic royal funerary cult.

Fâṭima, Daughter of Muhammad (second edition - paperback)

Second Edition
ISBN: 978-1-4632-3939-8
The only child of Muhammad to survive him, Fâṭima was from early times taken up by Shî’a Islam, for whose adherents she is the virgin mother, the heavenly intercessor with untold power before God’s throne, and the grieving mother of al-Husayn, the Shi’a's most important martyr. During her life she was impoverished and weak, neglected, marginalized, and divested of justice: but her reward in heaven comprises incalculable riches, all those in heaven will bow their heads to her, and her company will be the angels and the friends of God. Here, for the first time, her story is told.

Aqueducts and Urbanism in Post-Roman Hispania

ISBN: 978-1-4632-3915-2
Our current knowledge of Roman aqueducts across the Empire is patchy and uneven. Even if the development of “aqueduct studies” (where engineering, archaeology, architecture, hydraulics, and other disciplines converge) in recent years has improved this situation, one of the aspects which has been generally left aside is the chronology of their late antique phases and of their abandonment. In the Iberian peninsula, there is to date, no general overview of the Roman aqueducts, and all the available information is distributed across various publications, which as expected, hardly mention the late phases. This publication tackles this issue by analysing and reassessing the available evidence for the late phases of the Hispanic aqueducts by looking at a wide range of sources of information, many times derived from the recent interest shown by archaeologists and researchers on late antique urbanism.
