Ny forskare inom projektet Text and narrative in Byzatium

Vi är glada att till institutionen välkomna Markéta Kulhánkova, som ska tillbringa hösten i Uppsala inom ramen för projektet ”Text and narrative in Byzatium”. Markéta beskriver sitt arbete i följande ordalag:

During my four-month stay at the University of Uppsala, I will focus on the following tasks: preparing a contribution for the Companion to Byzantine satire about the 12th century Ptochoprodromic poems; finalising the Czech translation of Digenis Aktritis epos and writing the introductory study; pursuing my research on pseudo-orality in the Byzantine literature, especially in early hagiography. My aim is to prepare a research project proposal on this topic and to explore the possibilities of closer collaboration with the members of the present research group in Uppsala on this or related topic in the future.

International workshop: Greek Astronomical Manuscripts: New Perspectives from Swedish Collections

On August 24-25 we present a workshop that clusters around scholars who collaborated in various capacities at the exciting new online catalogue of Greek manuscripts in Sweden. It foregrounds the discovery of an astronomical miscellany, now MS Linköping klassiska författare 10, that posed special challenges regarding contents and provenance. The role of scientific miscellanies and the methodologies of cataloguing manuscripts add context to this specific case.

Barbara Crostini has been working at the Swedish catalogue descriptions and will coordinate further collaborations around these manuscripts. The project was directed by Patrick Granholm and Eva Nyström at the Carolina Library with a grant from the Bank of Sweden.


Location: Engelska Parken, Room 2-0024


Thursday 24 August, 16:30-18

Andrew Walker White: Orthodox Ritual in Byzantium

Andrew Walker White (Stratford University, VA) besöker patristikseminariet vid Newmaninstitutet för att tala över ämnet Orthodox Ritual in Byzantium:  A Performing Arts Perspective.

In his recently-published study, ”Performing Orthodox Ritual in Byzanium,” White argues for a more humane, contextual approach to understanding traditional Christian ritual.  The Divine Liturgy of John Chrysostom was first composed in the midst of a Roman imperial culture where theatre remained the most popular performing art, and where clergy trained in both classical dramatic literature and in the numerous creative, fictive exercises of the rhetorical progymnasmata.  What were the performance skills at the celebrant’s disposal?  How were they deployed?  And why did he deploy them?  Together with these questions is the matter of intellectual effort; ritual composition in the early Christian era was highly demanding, and its degree of sophistication went well beyond the demands of theatrical performance–contrary to popular belief.

Tid: onsdag 17 maj, 16.15‒18.00
