This volume contains a general introduction, English translation of and philological-historical commentary on an anonymous 7th- century A.D. hagiographical text entitled: An Account of the Miracles of the Holy and Glorious Megalomartyr and Wonder-worker Artemios. Also included is a photographic reproduction of the Greek text edited by A. Papadopoulos-Kerameus originally published by the Russian Academy as well as a supplementary essay by John Haldon. The general introduction discusses the historical persona of St. Artemios whose healing activities are predominantly centered on the Church of St. John Prodromos in Constantinople and who "specializes" in healing hernias and diseases affecting the genitals of mostly male patients.This book will interest students of Greek (especially Byzantine) philology, history, hagiography and medicine. As it contains a translation of the original Byzantine Greek text, it should also appeal to those seeking to improve their knowledge of Byzantine Greek."... it offers an entertaining introduction to the fascinating world of Byzantine hagiography for both undergraduate and graduate students and for the general reader."--Timothy S. Miller, Speculum, 1998."An excellent introduction to Byzantine popular religion."--Derek Krueger, Religious Studies Review, 1999."One can be sure that, after this publication, the Miracles of S. Artemois and seventh-century Byzantium will have more and more devotees."--Stephanos Efthymiadis, Jahrbuch der sterreichischen Byzantinistik, 1999.
