1. Religious Encounters on the Southern Egyptian Frontier in Late Antiquity (AD 298-642) (PhD-thesis Groningen, 2005), 242 pp.


2. (ed.) The Encroaching Desert: Egyptian Hagiography and the Medieval West (Leiden: Brill Academic Publishers, 2006), viii, 288 pp. (together with M. van Dijk), also published as a special issue of Church History and Religious Culture 86


James Goehring (in BASP 44 [2007] 277-81): “There is much of interest in this collection of essays. (…) The first three papers work particularly well together, introducing the reader to the sophisticated debate over the use of Egyptian hagiography in the reconstruction of history. The other papers, while more tenuously bound together by a common interest in the continuing influence of the Egyptian ascetic tradition in the western Middle Ages, offer valuable evidence and intriguing methodological insights. This well-produced volume will appeal primarily to specialists in the fields of Late Antiquity, Coptic Egypt and the western Middle Ages.”

3. Philae and the End of Ancient Egyptian Religion. A Regional Study of Religious Transformation (298-642 CE) (Orientalia Lovaniensia Analecta 173; Leuven: Peeters Publishers, 2008), xviii + 466 pp.


Robert B. Gozzoli (in BMCR 2009.06.43): “The book is an importan[t] research tool for anyone studying Early Christianity in Egypt. (…) As for 537 CE being a fundamental date for the end of paganism in Egypt, Dijkstra has made a convincing argument to dismiss such date: there is no definite break between Isis and Christ at Philae, but the former flows into the other without significant conflicts. (…) Very pleasantly, the book is not overburdened by technicalities, it tries to keep everything under clear headings and it is a pleasure to read.”

Renate Dekker (in Eastern Christian Art 6 [2009] 141-2): “By combining literary, documentary and material sources, Dijkstra is able to reconstruct the multifaceted process of religious transformation in the First Cataract region and to correct generally accepted ideas that are only based on literary texts. As a result, his conclusions are original and balanced. (…) This publication is not only interesting for its new insights in the history of Late Antique Philae, but also for its multidisciplinary approach, which sets an example for the study of religious transformation in general.”

Adam Łatjar/Ewa Wipszycka (in JJP 39 [2009] 333-41): “Dijkstra’s book is one of the most interesting and original works on the Christianisation of Egypt to be published in recent years.”

Terry Wilfong (in BASP 47 [2010] 375-82): “[T]he author situates his material into its wider historical context, and does this so effectively that what begins as a very specific study of a local problem expands to consider the transitions from paganism to Christianity in Egypt as a whole, and stands as one of the most important studies of this topic to date. This well written and deeply learned book is a tour de force of regional religious history that will also be essential reading for anyone interested in indigenous religion and early Christianity in this time of transition.”

Troels Myrup Kristensen (in JRA 24 [2011] 882-6): “This will become a standard work for the study of late-antique religious change, as well as a reference work for the history and archaeology of southern Egypt in general. Dijkstra’s careful evaluation of the biases and agendas in both ancient texts and modern scholarship is especially laudable. This book should be read alongside other recent contributions on late-antique Egypt that nuance the persisting idea of ‘religious conflict’ by placing violence (as well as peaceful co-existence) within its wider social context. The book is also an object lesson on the dangers of ‘cherry-picking’ evidence from the sources.”

Ines Köhler (in Orientalische Literaturzeitung 107 [2012] 221-3): “Vf. beweist während der gesamten Arbeit einen stets aktuellen Forschungsstand und kann an vielen Stellen zeigen, dass bisher manche Quellen zwar zur Kenntnis genommen wurden, ihre Auswertung aber verfeinert und kritischer bewertet werden muss. Bei dieser Arbeit handelt es sich fölglich nicht um eine Materialsammlung archäologischer und inschriftlicher Funde, sondern um eine Neuarbeitung and Auswertung aller relevanten Quellen. Die Ergebnisse der Analyse fließen in einem chronologisch geordneten Bild zusammen, dass Vf. klar strukturiert und nachvollziebar präsentiert.”

Miguel Herrero de Jáuregui (in BMCR 2011.2.30): “In this volume, the transition from one chapter to another is natural and smooth, and the three thematic clusters are well arranged to reflect the scholarly interests of the honorand; ancient myth and ritual, early Christianity, and the reception of ancient religions in modern times. (…) If Pindar’s epinician odes aimed to both celebrate the laudandus after his triumph and delight the audience with expert singing of ancient myths somehow related to the present time, we may compare again this volume to the best and richest (…) of them.”

Nina Schulz (in Review of Religious Research 53 [2011] 114-6): “This volume is a fitting tribute to a highly respected scholar in the history of religions.”

Kresimir Matijevic (in Gymnasium 119 [2012] 202-3): “Den Herausgebern ist für die sorgfältige Zusammenstellung der Festschrift zu danken und dem Geehrten zur wertvollen Festgabe zu gratulieren.”

5. Syene I: The Figural and Textual Graffiti from the Temple of Isis at Aswan (Beiträge zur ägyptischen Bauforschung und Altertumskunde 18; Darmstadt/Mainz: Verlag Philipp von Zabern, 2012), 239 pp. + 20 Figs. + 36 Pls. (with a contribution on the Egyptian texts by E. Cruz-Uribe)

Nico Staring (in Bibliotheca Orientalis 70 [2013] 381-7): “Dijkstra chooses not to publish his selection of ‘interesting graffiti’, but makes accessible all material, even if no more than a few scratches can be distinguished and their apparent value can be doubted. The importance of this consideration cannot be overemphasized, since it is especially their lack of parallels, questionable representativeness (…) and obscure contexts that obstruct proper graffiti research. Not retained by these limitations, Dijkstra has been able to provide extensive parallels for the graffiti found in the Isis-temple, evincing that their obscurity cannot be an apology for their deficient treatment in the literature. (…) One may confidently state that this publication sets the standard for much-needed future graffiti research and that it will remain to be used as an essential reference work.”

Sven Vleeming (BASP 50 [2013] 335-8): “In [Syene I] Dijkstra has presented us with a unique study that deserves our attention for several reasons. First and foremost the author has won great merit by publishing each and every trace of every graffito, be it textual, be it figural, found in the temple in question. One will be able to form a well-founded opinion of the secondary use of the free surfaces in an Egyptian temple through the ages. (…) Dijkstra deserves much praise and commendation for having composed an in-depth study of the figural graffiti found in the temple, in which he draws on an exceedingly rich documentation of figural graffiti from Graeco-Roman Egypt (…) [T]he book has been produced in a lavish manner, and, yes, the result is breathtakingly beautiful.”

A. Bausi (in Aethiopica 18 [2015] 248-51): “This rich book (…) is a deliberate attempt at extending an approach fruitfully employed in recent contributions concerning the eastern border of the Empire, namely the Sasanians, to the South and South East, notably Egypt, the Red Sea, and, in particular, Arabia. (…) The innovative aspect of the volume is to have included anthropologists in order to examine Late Antiquity models of state-tribe relationships and interactions.”

I. Toral-Niehoff (in Sehepunkte 16 [2016] no. 9): “[Dieser Band enthält gute bis sehr gute Beiträge] die einen informativen Einblick in die neuesten Forschungsergebnisse der ‘östlichen Spätantike’ geben und richtet zudem den Blick auf zwei weniger bekannte Randregionen des Römischen Reiches, nämlich die arabische und die ägyptisch-nubische Grenzregion.”

E. Key Fowden (in Journal of Late Antiquity 9 [2016] 557-60): “The volume contains excellent re-evaluations of the more familiar Roman sources (…) But what is most exciting is the less familiar material examined by specialists in Arabian, Egyptian, Nubian and Ethiopic epigraphies and material cultures, areas undergoing tremendous scholarly growth. The contributors present us with thoughtful discussions of how to listen to and work with the new material from the Roman frontiers.”

Aaron Butts (in Journal of Roman Studies 107 [2017] 473-4): “It is welcome to see a volume that cites Syriac historians such as John of Ephesus and Barhebraeus alongside much more well-known Roman historians, that turns to inscriptions — no matter the language in which they are written! — as often as to literary texts, and that aims to engage critically with the diverse array of available sources. Thus, this volume, with its broad temporal and geographical scope as well as its critical historical approach, should be seen for what it is: an important step in the right direction in the study of Late Antiquity.”
