Emotions penetrate every aspect of our lives. Interwoven with memory, attention, cognition, and decision making, they determine our interpersonal relations, our private life, the public sphere, and religious worship. Emotions had a particular significance also in ancient Greek culture, as Greek intellectuals were the first to theorize emotions in the Western world. A World of Emotions familiarizes the reader with the ubiquitous presence of emotions in Greek culture and life as well as their importance for an understanding of Greek art, literature, history, political life, society, and religion. It reveals how emotions are experienced, expressed, and aroused, how they are controlled or enslave us, how they are manipulated or evaluated. In doing so, it is hoped that this catalogue will trigger thoughts about the importance of emotions in our world, and show why the study of emotions in Classical Antiquity may help us to better understand our contemporary social and cultural environment. The catalogue A World of Emotions: Ancient Greece, 700 BC-200 AD accompanies a homonymous exhibition displaying a wide array of archeological finds from major museums and institutions in Greece, Europe, and North America. The exhibition is organized by the Onassis Foundation USA.

إن هذا المسح التمهيدي لتاريخ المواطنية ومبادئها وممارستها، مبنيٌّ على التسليم بأن الأوضاع الراهنة والنقاشات بشأن المواطنية لا يمكن فهمها دون معرفة الخلفيات التاريخية.+++ يزوّدنا المؤلف بذلك، من خلال سرد تحليلي لوظيفة المواطنية وكبار المنظرين، من "إسبرطة" إلى الزمن الحاضر، يحتوي على مقتطفات من نصوص أساسية. كما يسأل القارئ أن يعرض كيف تتميّز المواطنية عن الأشكال الأخرى للهوية المجتمعية ـ السياسية، وذلك باستخدام الإثباتات التاريخية التي يقدمها. ويركز، بصورة خاصة، على الافتراضات الشائعة بأن المواطنية والجنسيّة هما صنوان، متشككاً في هذه المقولة، باعتماده على أسس الخبرات التاريخية والصعوبات التي تثيرها.

The Journal of Biblical and Theological Studies (JBTS) is an academic journal focused on the fields of Bible and Theology from an inter-denominational point of view. The journal is comprised of an editorial board of scholars that represent several academic institutions throughout the world. JBTS is concerned with presenting high-level original scholarship in an approachable way. Academic journals are often written by scholars for other scholars. They are technical in nature, assuming a robust knowledge of the field. There are fewer journals that seek to introduce biblical and theological scholarship that is also accessible to students. JBTS seeks to provide high-level scholarship and research to both scholars and students, which results in original scholarship that is readable and accessible. As an inter-denominational journal JBTS is broadly evangelical. We accept contributions in all theological disciplines from any evangelical perspective. In particular, we encourage articles and book reviews within the fields of Old Testament, New Testament, Biblical Theology, Church History, Systematic Theology, Practical Theology, Philosophical Theology, Philosophy, and Ethics.

La publication repose sur les fouilles menées à l'agora de Palmyre par H. Seyrig et R. Duru en 1939et 1940. Complétées dans les années 1960 par le dégagement, conduit par la Direction Générale des Antiquités et des Musées de Syrie, d'un bâtiment voisin appelé " salle annexe ", ces recherches étaient largement restées inédites. Reprenant l'ensemble de la documentation dispersée entre Damas, Beyrouth, Strasbourg et Bordeaux, les auteurs fournissent une nouvelle chronologie ainsi qu'une nouvelle interprétation de ce groupe monumental (agora-forum entre basilique et curie), qui repose sur l'étude des inscriptions (étude entamée dans les années 1970 sous la direction d'Ed. Frézouls) et des consoles, du décor architectural et de la sculpture. Cet ensemble est réintégré dans une compréhension globale de la documentation palmyrénienne. L'étude de ce complexe monumental conduit également à redéfinir l'évolution de l'urbanisme de la ville. Au terme de cette analyse, apparaît qu'une forte volonté impériale a imposé comme un modèle romain -forum entre basilique et curie- dans ces terres des confins orientaux de l'Empire romain par ailleurs imprégnés de culture parthe.
