About

Founded in 1966 by Georges Vallet, the Jean Bérard Research Centre (CNRS USR 3133 / EFR) has played an important role in archaeological research in Southern Italy since its creation, acting for 50 years as a service hub (relations with the Italian authorities, accommodation, publications, documentation center, training, assistance to archaeological sites) for fellow researchers from other entities. Since the beginning, it was conceived as a scientific publishing house for archeology doctoral theses, excavation reports, conferences and seminars proceedings, topographic bibliography of Greek colonization. Through the work of G. Vallet, it has also collected stories of French travellers from the Grand Tour and studies of the painters of that time. In total, more than 100 books have been published, from Dr. J. La Genière’s doctoral thesis on the Iron Age in Southern Italy published in 1968 to research publications of the Jean Bérard Center on crafts in Pompeii.

Abstract

The book brings together 16 contributions on the ancient and recent history of citrus fruits. Although they represent the main fruit production on a worldwide scale, very little is known about their original domestication and routes of introduction into the Mediterranean and temperate Europe: few organic remains identified as citrus have been found on archaeological sites. Nevertheless, evidence has been retrieved for various periods in the form of pollen grains, seeds, rind fragments, and occasionally wood and whole fruits in areas of primo-domestication, Asian, and from sites along the potential routes of diffusion. Iconographic figurations and textual references also exist. The contributions presented here – written by researchers specializing in phylogeny, taxonomy, morphometry, archaeobotany, history, iconography, the study of classical letters, and curators of collections – present the latest knowledge relating to the taxonomy of the Citrus genus and the methods used in attempting to identify ancient specimens. Analysis of botanical remains and a variety of other sources, has allowed the citrus diversity in China, India, Israel, Egypt, Italy, and North-West Europe to be described. Greek, Latin and medieval texts have been explored in order to identify recognized species, cultivation methods, modes of consumption, uses, and virtues attributed to citrus fruits since their first occurrences. The conservatories and germplasm collections of citrus are presented from a historical point of view, as are the important role they play in genetic research to improve cultivars, the conservation of rare and ancient varieties, and the role of informing the general public is also emphasized. The symbolic representation of citrus fruits in the arts, literature, and philosophy completes this overview, and fills a gap concerning these emblematic Mediterranean fruit.

Abstract

« La grande histoire a longtemps oublié l’alun, parce qu’il était un personnage discret, comme elle a longtemps négligé de s’intéresser au blé, à l’huile, et en général à tout ce qui est indispensable à la vie quotidienne » déclarait Jean Delumeau au début de la conclusion de son ouvrage L’alun de Rome, paru en 1962. C’est qu’une fois identifiée la place centrale de cette substance pour l’industrie textile, et dans une moindre mesure pour la mégisserie, voire la métallurgie, il était relative...

Abstract

Le 8 Mars 1890, au Trinity College de Cambridge, un ethnologue de trente-six ans, James George Frazer, achève et signe la préface de l’œuvre en deux volumes à laquelle il travaille depuis le printemps précédent. Cette première version du Rameau d’Or sera, comme on sait, suivie de plusieurs autres, qui porteront cette « étude séparée » sur « la règle, jusqu’ici inexpliquée, de la prêtris d’Aricie » aux dimensions monumentales de la troisième édition (1911-1915) en douze volumes. Il nous a sem...

Abstract

On associe exclusivement le nom de Volaire, du chevalier Volaire comme on l'appelait de son temps, aux représentations des éruptions du Vésuve, de nuit de préférence, ce qui permettait de beaux effets d'éclairage pittoresques. C'est, comme le prouve la monographie d'Émilie Beck, ne pas rendre justice à un artiste dont l'œuvre est bien plus varié qu'on ne le croit communément. Fruit de patientes recherches entreprises depuis plusieurs années, cette monographie nous restitue la vie et la carriè...
