Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Tradition and Transformation: Egypt under Roman Rule contains the table of contents, list of symposium papers, and a preface. In Roman Egypt, major changes and a slow process of transformation can be observed alongside unbroken traditions. The multi-ethnical population was situated between new patterns of rule and traditional lifeways. This tension between change and permanence was investigated during the conference. The last decades have seen an increase in the interest in Roman Egypt with new research from different disciplines - Egyptology, Ancient History, Classical Archaeology, Epigraphy, and Papyrology - providing new insights into the written and archaeological sources, especially into settlement archaeology. Well-known scholars analyzed the Egyptian temples, the structure and development of the administration beside archaeological, papyrological, art-historical and cult related questions.

Keywords: Egypt; Roman rule; archaeological sources
