Pompeii is the best known and probably the most important archaeological site in the world. This book, now available in paperback, is the most up-to-date, authoritative and comprehensive account for the general reader of its rise, splendour and fall. The drama of Pompeii's end has been handed down by Roman writers, its paintings and mosaics have astonished visitors since their discovery, and its houses and public buildings still present a vivid picture of life, disaster and death in a Roman town.

The cultural environment of the New Testament is shaped by two rivaling principles of social exchange: The sphere of traditional reciprocity, which is based on cyclic long-term relationships, is partly invaded by forms of market economy. Luke-Acts depicts the consequences of that clash of mentalities unadornedly, without retreating to contemporary ideologies. Everyday conflicts in the spheres of euergetism or patron-client relationships about lending money, spending or stockpiling grain, provide the framework for Luke‘s own vision of a commnion of goods as counter-society.

This book offers a comprehensive overview of the tombs of Pompeii and its immediate environs, examining the funerary culture of the population, delving into the importance of social class and self-representation, and developing a broad understanding of Pompeii’s funerary epigraphy and business. The Pompeian corpus of evidence has heretofore been studied in a piecemeal fashion, not conducive to assessing trends and practices. Here, a holistic approach to the funerary monuments allows for the integration of data from five different necropoleis and analysis of greater accuracy and scope. Author Virginia Campbell demonstrates that the funerary practices of Pompeii are, in some ways, unique in to the population, moving away from the traditional approach to burial based on generalizations and studies of typology. She shows that while some trends in Roman burial culture can be seen as universal, each population, time, and place constructs its own approach to commemoration and display. Including an extensive catalogue of tomb data and images never before assembled or published, this collective approach reveals new insights into ancient commemoration. The Tombs of Pompeii is the first English-language book on Pompeian funerary rituals. It’s also the first in any language to provide a complete survey of the tombs of Pompeii and the first to situate Pompeian differences within a wider Roman burial context.

The resonant ruins of Pompeii are perhaps the most direct route back to the living, breathing world of the ancient Romans. Two million visitors annually now walk the paved streets which re-emerged, miraculously preserved, from their layers of volcanic ash. Yet for all the fame and unique importance of the site, there is a surprising lack of a handy archaeological guide in English to reveal and explain its public spaces and private residences. This compact and user-friendly handbook, written by an expert in the field, helpfully fills that gap. Illustrated throughout with maps, plans, diagrams and other images, Pompeii: An Archaeological Guide offers a general introduction to the doomed city followed by an authoritative summary and survey of the buildings, artefacts and paintings themselves. The result is an unrivalled picture, derived from an intimate knowledge of Roman archaeology around the Bay of Naples, of the forum, temples, brothels, bath-houses, bakeries, gymnasia, amphitheatre, necropolis and other site buildings – including perennial favourites like the House of the Faun, named after its celebrated dancing satyr.

Am 24. August des Jahres 79 n. Chr. ereignete sich der letzte große Vulkanausbruch des Vesuv. Die durch frühere Eruptionen aufgehäuften Steinmassen, Asche und Bimsstein, stürzten in den Krater, wurden wieder ausgeworfen und verschütteten die Umgebung des Vulkans. Mit starken Regengüssen schlammartig vermischt, strömten sie über Herculaneum nach Westen. Der Nordwind trieb eine gewaltige Wolke über Pompeji und die Sarnoebene, aus der zuerst Bimsstein bis zu einer Höhe von 2–3 Metern, dann Asche und zugleich auch Regengüsse fielen, die eine Höhe von 1½–2 erreichten. Mit dem Beginn des Aschenregens erfolgten gleichzeitig heftige Erdstöße, die auch weiterhin fortdauerten. Vor diesem verhängnisvollen Ausbruch galt der Vesuv als ein längst erloschener Vulkan. Diese Eruption des Vesuvs verschüttete die Stadt vollständig, konservierte sie dabei weitgehend. Im Laufe der Zeit wurde sie vergessen. Erst nach ihrer Wiederentdeckung im 18. Jahrhundert begann die zweite Geschichte der Stadt, in deren Verlauf Pompeji zu einem zentralen Objekt der Archäologie und der Erforschung der antiken Welt wurde. Pompeji, eine der am besten erhaltenen antiken Stadtruinen, wurde zu einem bekannten und stark rezipierten Begriff. Der deutsche Archäologe Mau verfasste neben seinen Forschungsberichten im Jahr 1908 auch diese interessante und allgemeinverständliche Darstellung Pompejis, die bis heute als Standardwerk gilt und hiermit erstmals als E-Book vorliegt. Beginnend mit der Entstehung, der Geschichte und dem Untergang Pompejis beschreibt Mau alle wichtigen Gebäude und Plätze der Stadt. Darüber hinaus erörtert er die Architektur- und Kunstgeschichte. Auch die untergegangene Nachbarstadt Herculaneum bleibt nicht unberücksichtigt: In einem ausführlichen Kapitel widmet sich Mau der Ausgrabung Herculaneums, die zu seiner Zeit gerade begonnen wurde.
