The volume reflects growing interest in the field of late-antique biogra-phy in particular: Cox’s Biography in Late Antiquity (Berkeley, Los Angeles and London ) is cited by more than one author as a trailblazer, while M. Edwards and Simon Swain’s Portraits: Biographical Representation in the Greek and Latin Literature of the Roman Empire (Oxford ) now complements our collec-tion; the latter has a more Roman flavour and fewer Christian texts, but an additional facet in chapters on Jewish martyr-literature (Rajak) and the Sa-maritan Simon Magus (Mark Edwards).
