Über diesen Titel:
Thanks to residence in Egypt and many years of work with the original papyri, Leslie S. B. MacCoull is able to present a comprehensive picture of Dioscorus and his times. Through detailed analyses of the documents and poems, some previously unknown, she leads us to a fresh perception of the Coptic culture of Byzantine Egypt. She reveals the man and his world as inheritors of and contributors to the Egyptian-Classical-Christian fusion of society and intellectual life that gave birth to Gnosticism and the Desert Fathers. Dioscorus of Aphrodito epitomizes the little-known cultural flowering of late antique Egypt, which is now seen not as a place of sterility and decadence, but as the home of a strikingly original and creative culture whose subsequent eclipse still remains unexplained.
Über den Autor: Leslie S.B. MacCoull has served the Society for Coptic Archaeology since 1978, first as its Director of Studies and subsequently as its U.S. Representative. She has been a fellow of Dumbarton Oaks, the American Research Center in Egypt, and the American Association of University Women.
