Individuality in Late Antiquity, Hardback Book

Individuality in Late Antiquity Hardback

Edited by Alexis Torrance, Johannes Zachhuber

Part of the Studies in Philosophy and Theology in Late Antiquity series



Late antiquity is increasingly recognised as a period of important cultural transformation.

One of its crucial aspects is the emergence of a new awareness of human individuality.

In this book an interdisciplinary and international group of scholars documents and analyses this development.

Authors assess the influence of seminal thinkers, including the Gnostics, Plotinus, and Augustine, but also of cultural and religious practices such as astrology and monasticism, as well as, more generally, the role played by intellectual disciplines such as grammar and Christian theology.

Broad in both theme and scope, the volume serves as a comprehensive introduction to late antique understandings of human individuality.
