PDF Signaler ce document 1The publication of the fourth volume of the Bibliotheca Cumontiana, containing the minor works on astrology of the Belgian scholar, is certainly a very good piece of news for all the specialists of antiquity, Classicists and Orientalists as well. The interests and the researches of Cumont had in fact so many ramifications in different branches of the history of the ancient world that the present collection certainly will satisfy very many scholars who expected such a useful volume since a long time.

The volume is closed by two very good indexes, one of the names and of the ancient terms p. The single articles have been re-edited i. Furthermore, I must observe that also the choice of the single articles is absolutely sound. The editors prudently explain that in some cases the subject of some articles crossed the domain of different disciplines, so that the definitive arrangement in one or another volume of these Scripta Minora was not so easy, in particular when we consider that the full bibliography of Cumont contains presently known titles.

But apart from these evident merits, I would like to dedicate few remarks on the introductory articles, which equally result of great interest. Praet gives a very exhaustive overview of the editorial project, which should contain seven thematic volumes, while most of the reviews, apparently more than , will be put at disposal of the readers on the public web-site of the Scripta Minora see p. This is certainly a very good decision that should increase the interest for the precious bibliographical material left by Cumont.

This preface is also useful for the presentation of the complex editorial work endorsed by the academic and scientific board leading the whole project, and for a right recognition of the strong effort, also from the economic point of view, realized by some institutions as the Academia Belgica, the Institut historique belge de Rome, the FWO and the Universiteit Gent.

This explains also his deep consideration not only for the fundamental work of A. This article is also of help when we try to frame the important relations of Cumont with prominent scholars like Arthur D. Contrariwise, we must also be careful avoiding to forget that some remarks are still sound, in spite of the fact that today they must be represented in a very different light and with a number of more precise data.

The details of the affaire Cumont, on which already Corinne Bonnet has written a number of very pertinent papers, based on a number of first hand researches in the archives and on the epistolographical documentation still at disposal p. In addition, Danny Praet focuses on the fact that the anticlericalism of Cumont never became a sort of anti-religious attitude, and that he simply insisted on the right to maintain a separation between science and politics, history of religion and theology.
