They also offer a detailed introduction to his philosophical works (Metalogicon, Entheticus), his political thought (Policraticus) and his writing of history (Historia pontificalis).

After Plato and Aristotle, the Stoics, from the 3rd century BCE onwards, developed the third great classical conception of wisdom. This book offers a reconstruction of this pivotal notion in Stoicism, starting out from the two extant Stoic definitions, 'knowledge of human and divine matters' and 'fitting expertise'. It focuses not only on the question of what they understood by wisdom, but also on how wisdom can be achieved, how difficult it is to become a sage, and how this difficulty can be explained. The answers to these questions are based on a fresh investigation of the evidence, with all central texts offered in the original Greek or Latin, as well as in translation. The Stoic Sage can thus also serve as a source book on Stoic wisdom, which should be invaluable to specialists and to anyone interested in one of the cornerstones of the Graeco-Roman classical tradition.

This is the first volume to attempt a comprehensive overview of the evolution of the 'Arian' churches in the Roman world of Late Antiquity and their political importance in the late Roman kingdoms of the 5th-6th centuries, ruled by barbarian warrior elites. Bringing together researchers from the disciplines of theology, history and archaeology, and providing an extensive bibliography, it constitutes a breakthrough in a field largely neglected in historical studies.

A polemical term coined by the Orthodox Church (the side that prevailed in the Trinitarian disputes of the 4th century C.E.) for its opponents in theology as well as in ecclesiastical politics, Arianism has often been seen as too complicated to understand outside the group of theological specialists dealing with it and has therefore sometimes been ignored in historical studies. The studies here offer an introduction to the subject, grounded in the historical context, then examine the adoption of Arian Christianity among the Gothic contingents of the Roman army, and its subsequent diffusion in the barbarian kingdoms of the late Roman world.

Il presente lavoro raccoglie gli Atti del Convegno « Nei dintorni dell'Aquila. Ricerche archeologiche nel territorio dei Vestini Cismontani prima e dopo il terremoto del 6 aprile 2009 » tenutosi il 12-13 febbraio 2010 presso l'École française de Rome. Il volume affronta varie problematiche inerenti il territorio « aquilano » : una messa a punto delle recenti acquisizioni sui dati funerari nel range cronologico compreso fra IX e I secolo a.C., dai tumuli alle tombe a camera con letti funerari rivestiti in osso. Viene poi analizzato il territorio in esame sia dal punto di vista geo-paleontologico, che sulla base dei rinvenimenti archeologici : un approfondimento specifico è stato effettuato sulla problematica dei siti d'altura protostorici artificialmente difesi. Anche l'occupazione di epoca romana ed alcuni esiti d'età medievale, vengono affrontate sia per quanto riguarda le ricerche sui siti principali (Aveia, Peltuinum, Aufinum), che nella distribuzione degli insediamenti minori, dei luoghi di culto e della viabilità. La cultura dei Vestini Cismontani, diacronicamente analizzata, viene messa in rapporto con il mondo sabino, piceno e medio-adriatico.
