Abstract

This is the first edition of ten Funeral Orations of Michael Psellos based on all the manuscripts preserving those works and accompanied by a full apparatus fontium and the necessary critical apparatus. Some of those texts had been published by the Greek scholar Konstantinos Sathas at the end of the XIX c. Those editions hardly correspond to the contemporary standards. The same applies to several more recent editions, prepared by P. Gautier, which also leave much to be desired. The most important texts of our collection are the funeral orations for the patriarchs Michael Keroullarios, Konstantinos Leichoudes and John Xiphilinos, a personal friend of Michael Psellos. All the texts offer valuable details concerning Psellos's early life; at the same time they constitute an important testimony to the survival of the Late Antique Rhetoric in XI c. Byzantium. They constitute a necessary supplement to Psellos's more famous work, his Chronography, verifying and shedding a new light on the events narrated there.

Abstract

Beim Traktat des bekannten alexandrinischen Gelehrten und Aristoteles-Kommentators Johannes Philoponos (6. Jh. n. Chr.) über das Astrolab handelt es sich um eine kleine, für die Wissenschaftsgeschichte aber sehr bedeutsame Schrift, da es die älteste erhaltene Beschreibung und Funktionsanleitung des später besonders im islamischen Bereich weit verbreiteten astronomischen Gerätes enthält. Die Schrift ist in der Philologie recht stiefmütterlich behandelt worden und war bis jetzt lediglich als Beitrag im ‚Rheinischen Museum‘ von 1839 zugänglich. Das Ziel des vorliegenden Büchleins besteht darin, den griechischen Text in einer neu redigierten, durch Berücksichtigung weiterer Handschriften gestützten Fassung vorzulegen und die Abhandlung mit einer deutschen Übersetzung und den nötigen Erläuterungen und Illustrationen einem weiteren Interessentenkreis zugänglich zu machen. Den griechischen Vorfahren der späteren kunstvollen islamischen und abendländischen Astrolabgeräten kennenzulernen, dürfte nicht nur den Fachmann interessieren. This treatise on the astrolabe by the Alexandrian scholar John Philoponos includes the earliest preserved description of the planispherical device that was later widely disseminated during the Middle Ages. Stückelberger’s edition is intended for philologists as well as historians and astronomers. The newly edited Greek text is accompanied by a German translation, explanations, and illustrations.

Abstract

"Theodore Metochites, a distinguished figure in the intellectual and political landscape of the early Palaiologan period (1261-1341), was born in Constantinople in 1270. The On Morals or Concerning Education is an extensive disquisition about the significance and status of cultural education (paideia) in the context of Palaiologan society. The oration might also be seen at least partly as an autobiographical narrative exposing Metochites's inner reflections and anxieties. The On Morals belongs to the genre of the protreptikos, a hortatory speech designed to encourage its readers to study philosophy and attain virtue. With the On Morals Metochites sought to establish himself as a continuator of ancient moral philosophy in late Byzantium"--
