    Style Et Idéologie. De la Version Longue À la Version Brève de la Vie de Jean L’Aumônier, Due À Léonce de Néapolis.Pablo Cavallero - 2020 - Byzantinische Zeitschrift 113 (1):1-34.
    The changes in the short version of Leontios of Neapolis’ Life of John the Almsgiver are analyzed in order to evaluate their cause and to expose their literary character. It is shown that the saint’s oaths are suppressed due to a misunderstanding of a passage in the Prologue, and by respect of the Evangelical commandment. The short version also eliminates pagan concepts of fortune, emphasises the social hierarchy, the accordance between words and thoughts, the action of God as a cause (...)

  3. Picture and Text: On the “Iconography” of Sacred Spaces in Middle-Byzantine Ekphraseis.Beatrice Daskas - 2020 - Byzantinische Zeitschrift 113 (1):35-68.
    The present contribution engages with two representative examples of middle-Byzantine ekphraseis, Photios’ description of the Virgin of the Pharos and Leo VI’s account of the church founded by Stylianos Zautzes. It aims at showing how these texts suggest modes of viewing the sacred space and decoration that pose, more than settle, questions about images and pictures, their intended function, significance and impact within their specific cultural frames of reference. Far from being neutral and disengaged, these verbal representations have a specific (...)

  6. A Lifetime with Proclus: Psellos as Reader.Frederick Lauritzen - 2020 - Byzantinische Zeitschrift 113 (1):69-80.
    Michael Psellos read texts of the Neoplatonist Proclus throughout his life. His interest may have started as early as 1034, but the first direct references can be dated to ca 1041 and the last occur towards the end of his life, notably the Omnifaria Doctrina. Psellos’ interest in Proclus evolved over time: 1. 1034-1043 hermeneutical problems, 2. 1043-1059 theurgy and interest in relation between body and soul, 3. 1059-1081 physiology and interest in Proclus’ philosophical principles. Psellos’ wide range of interests (...)

    This paper deals with an unpublished lead seal was found during the excavation works within the chandler’s workshop of Vatopedi, a later structure which was added to the eastern face of the bell tower. The seal names a Constantine, chartoularios and epi tou patriarchikou sekretou and dates back to 10th till early 11th century.

  10. Socrates the Judge: A Not-so-Platonizing Dialogue on the Deposition of Patriarch Nicholas IV Mouzalon.Lev Lukhovitskiy & Varvara Zharkaya - 2020 - Byzantinische Zeitschrift 113 (1):219-248.
    The article brings under scrutiny an understudied dialogical account about the deposition of the patriarch of Constantinople Nicholas IV Mouzalon. A close reading shows that this is not an official record of the proceedings but a piece of fiction that deliberately inverts the generic conventions of the two types of texts indicative of the 12th-century literary landscape, namely 1) minutes of church councils and 2) syllogistic theological dialogues. The anonymous author invites the reader to recognize the all-familiar scheme of the (...)

  12. Herennius Philon’s Progeny: Ps-Ammonius, Eustathius and the Term Συγγραφεῖς in Postclassical Times.Dimitrios Papanikolaou - 2020 - Byzantinische Zeitschrift 113 (1):93-110.
    The paper is concerned with a similar entry of the lexica of Thomas Magister and Ps-Ammonius concerning the semantic difference between συγγρα- φεῖς and ἱστορικοί. The entry is proven to be ultimately descended from the lost lexicon Περὶ τῶν διαφόρως σημαινομένων of Herennius Philon ; this lexicon in its lost unabridged form seems to have influenced the distinction συγγραφεῖς / ἱστορικοί in the preface of the historical work of Eustathius on the sack of Thessalonica by the Normans. The paper investigates (...)

  13. The Rhetorical Works of the School of Gaza.Robert J. Penella - 2020 - Byzantinische Zeitschrift 113 (1):111-174.
    This paper surveys the rhetorical works of the so-called School of Gaza of the late fifth and early sixth centuries in light of the recent wave of scholarship on the School. It focuses on themes, rhetorical genres, and structural features. The Gazan repertoire includes “real life” orations, declamations, dialexeis, progymnasmatic pieces, and oratorical paratexts such as preliminary dialexeis and protheōriai. The paper seeks to provide a map to this important but neglected body of texts, synthesizing recent scholarship and adding some (...)

  14. Un fantôme historique : «l’autre Theophane».Panayotis Yannopoulos - 2020 - Byzantinische Zeitschrift 113 (1):189-218.
    At the beginning of the 9th c. George Syncellus began to write a universal chronicle, the second part of which was completed by the monk Theophanes. According to Byzantine tradition this monk was Theophanes the Confessor. But 10th-century sources note that this Theophanes was the grandfather or greatuncle of the emperor Constantine VII, which is historically impossible. This prompted P. Speck to invent “another Theophanes”, who lived during the second half of the 9th c. and was the editor of the (...)
