Civitatum Orbis MEditerranei Studia

Edited by Reinhard Feldmeier, Friedrich Reiterer, Karin Schöpflin, Ilinca Tanaseanu-Döbler, and Kristin De Troyer

The Civitatum Orbis MEditerranei Studia (COMES) series publishes self-contained individual volumes, each of which deals with a significant place in the Mediterranean area in antiquity. In an interdisciplinary overview, articles from the fields of archeology, geography, political history, philosophy, classical studies, philology, religious studies and theology provide a profile of the place dealt with. The content focuses on the history of religion. In addition to pagan religiousness, ancient Judaism and Christianity, early Islam is also included wherever possible. The result is a compendium which in its overviews and its specialized individual articles incorporates each of the facets which account for the uniqueness of the place. The time period covered ranges from the foundation up to the Early Middle Ages at the latest – the focus will depend on the most prosperous time of the place concerned, but will however in many cases be found in the Hellenistic-Roman period.
