In originally separating the recent scholarship on Byzantine-Modern from the 2011 scholarship on Ancient Corinth, I had forgotten that the pickings were so few. This is a rather sad list (in terms of quantity), and I will combine these three entries in the permanent page for 2011 archaeology and historical publications.
- Bourbou, Chryssi, Benjamin T. Fuller Sandra J. Garvie-Lok, Michael P. Richards, “Reconstructing the diets of Greek Byzantine populations (6th–15th centuries AD) using carbon and nitrogen stable isotope ratios,” in American Journal of Physical Anthropology (Sept. 2011).
- Pollard, Lucy, “‘Every stone tells a story’: the uses of classical texts by seventeenth-century English visitors to Greece and Asia Minor,” in Classical Receptions Journal, November 2011.
- Robinson, Betsey, Histories of Peirene: A Corinthian Fountain in Three Millennia, Princeton 2011: American School of Classical Studies at Athens. (Reviews available at Corinithianmatters and the New Archaeology of the Mediterranean World.)
Byzantine or Early Modern Corinthia, anyone? Looks like there’s plenty of room for additional research here.
So, in lieu of a longer list, I’ll take this opportunity to tabulate the relative frequency of books and articles published in 2011 according to specific periods and subjects. The following counts certain works twice if relevant to different periods / subjects. Note again that these lists are probably incomplete, but the tabulations below are broadly representative of trends in publication of Corinthiaka:
Bronze Age: 2
Early Iron Age / Geometric: 1
Early Roman: 13 (but see New Testament)
Late Roman: 7
Early Modern: 1
New Testament: 1 Corinthians: 51
New Testament: 2 Corinthians: 23
New Testament: Pauline Corinth: 16
Patristic / Early Christian: 9
Gulf of Corinth: Geology, Environment, Earthquakes, and Miscellany: 24
