Honor Among Thieves: Craftsmen, Merchants, and Associations in Roman and Late Roman Egypt
Presenter: Phillip F. Venticinque, PhD, Associate Professor of Classics, Cornell College, Iowa

This webinar is drawn from Professor Venticinque's book of the same title. He provides an analysis of how craftsmen, merchants, and associations interacted with each other and with elite and nonelite constituencies; how they managed economic, political, social, and legal activities; and represented their concerns to the authorities. His examination of primary source material led to his insights into this demographic's acquisition and use of social capital and created status among their own ranks. Hence, the title Honor Among Thieves.


Philip F. Venticinque, is an Associate Professor of Classics at Cornell College in Mt. Vernon, Iowa where he was honored with the Gaarde-Morton Junior Faculty Award in 2011. Students chose him to deliver the faculty address at commencement in 2015. Dr. Venticinque earned his PhD and his MA from the University of Chicago Department of Classics and the Program and Committee on the Ancient Mediterranean World respectively. His BA in classical languages and literature is also from the University of Chicago. He has been the recipient of fellowships from the American Council of Learned Societies, Center for Hellenic Studies, and Loeb Classical Library Foundation. He also received the Mrs. Giles Whiting Dissertation Fellowship, the Dumbarton Oaks Junior Fellowship in Byzantine Studies, and the Martin Marty Center Dissertation Fellowship from the University of Chicago Divinity School. Professor Venticinque has published and presented on various topics about Roman Egypt.
