Summaries
Bowker Data Service Summary
This volume contains papers originally presented at the Roemer-and Pelizaeus-Museum, Hildesheim, on the 3-6 July, 2008.
Description for Reader
All those interested in the history, archaeology, administration, religion, hieroglyphic temple texts, papyrology, and epigraphy of Roman Egypt.
Main Description
In 30 BCE, Egypt became a province of the Roman empire. Alongside unbroken traditions especially of the indigenous Egyptian population, but also among the Greek elite major changes and slow processes of transformation can be observed. The multi-ethnical population was situated between new patterns of rule and traditional lifeways. This tension between change and permanence was investigated during the conference. The last decades have seen an increase in the interest in Roman Egypt with new research from different disciplines Egyptology, Ancient History, Classical Archaeology, Epigraphy, and Papyrology providing new insights into the written and archaeological sources, especially into settlement archaeology. Well-known scholars analysed the Egyptian temples, the structure and development of the administration beside archaeological, papyrological, art-historical and cult related questions.
