9780691128245: The School of Libanius in Late Antique Antioch

This book is a study of the fourth-century sophist Libanius, a major intellectual figure who ran one of the most prestigious schools of rhetoric in the later Roman Empire. He was a tenacious adherent of pagan religion and a friend of the emperor Julian, but also taught leaders of the early Christian church like St. John Chrysostom and St. Basil the Great. Raffaella Cribiore examines Libanius's training and personality, showing him to be a vibrant educator, though somewhat gloomy and anxious by nature. She traces how he cultivated a wide network of friends and former pupils and courted powerful officials to recruit top students. Cribiore describes his school in Antioch--how students applied, how they were evaluated and trained, and how Libanius reported progress to their families. She details the professional opportunities that a thorough training in rhetoric opened up for young men of the day. Also included here are translations of 200 of Libanius's most important letters on education, almost none of which have appeared in English before.


Cribiore casts into striking relief the importance of rhetoric in late antiquity and its influence not only on pagan intellectuals but also on prominent Christian figures. She gives a balanced view of Libanius and his circle against the far-flung panorama of the Greek East.

From the Inside Flap:


"This book is a thorough and lively account of the school of rhetoric led by the sophist Libanius. Cribiore depicts this educational system in greater detail and with more attention to context than anyone before her. She manages to convey the excitement of words and speech. The surviving quantity of Libanius's written work is enormous. Few scholars of late antiquity have even attempted to master it as a whole. Cribiore has done this with a sharp historical eye and a fine sense of style. She breathes life into a corpus of texts that have traditionally induced ennui or neglect. This is a highly significant contribution to the field of late antique studies. The scholarship is impeccable. Cribiore has a deep knowledge of her voluminous author."--Glen Bowersock, Institute for Advanced Study


"This book will be welcomed wholeheartedly by classicists who work on ancient education and those whose interests touch late imperial culture and history. By careful reading of Libanius's vast correspondence, Cribiore pieces together the most complete picture we have of this tremendously important figure's educational activities in late antiquity. One might disagree with her, but she has done her homework, and her disputes with earlier points of view are both intelligent and clear. This is a study that has long been needed."--Stephen Trzaskoma, University of New Hampshire
