This work retells the life of the Bishop Marutha of Maipherkat, or Martyropolis, as translated from the Armenian text. Bishop Marutha was twice envoy from the East Roman Empire to Yezdegerd I of Persia, and his theological work is preserved in the Church of the East. His work includes a written history of the Persian martyrs, and tradition ascribes the name of his city to the number of relics he brought back. In addition to the original Armenian text, also referenced are a useful selection of other writings about him in Greek, Syriac, and Arabic. This compilation contains many details of Bishop Marutha's missions not recorded elsewhere, and his life illuminates our understanding of Christianity in the early fifth century.

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.
