La papyrologie est vraiment née au XIXe siècle avec la découverte de dizaines de milliers de papyrus grecs, latins, coptes ou encore arabes sur le sol d’Egypte ; des trésors documentaires inestimables qui ne cessent d’enrichir, renouveler, voire bousculer notre connaissance de l’Antiquité et de mille ans d’histoire méditerranéenne. Cette science, encore jamais représentée au Collège de France, est aujourd’hui la science de l’Antiquité qui a le plus fort potentiel de renouvellement avec une m ...

Fifty years ago the word “Byzantine” was used as a synonym for all that was corrupt and decadent, and the tale of the East-Roman Empire was dismissed by modern historians as depressing and monotonous. The great Gibbon had branded the successors of Justinian and Heraclius as a series of vicious weaklings, and for several generations no one dared to contradict him. Two books have served to undeceive the English reader, the monumental work of Finlay, published in 1856, and the more modern volum ...

Agathopous was a deacon, very old, and Theodoulos a reader, very young, in the church in Thessalonica. During Diocletian's persecution the two were summoned to trial.

Very little is known of him. He took up the monastic life while still very young, and gave himself without reserve to the ascetical struggle, so much so that in the virtues of humility and obedience it was said that he exceeded 'not only the brethren, but all men.'

Paradox is a sophisticated kind of magic trick. A magician's purpose is to create the appearance of impossibility, to pull a rabbit from an empty hat. Yet paradox doesn't require tangibles, like rabbits or hats. Paradox works in the abstract, with words and concepts and symbols, to create the illusion of contradiction. There are no contradictions i…
