Der russisch-israelische Papyrologe und Althistoriker I. F. Fikhman zahlt zu den bedeutendsten Forschern des 20. Jhs. auf dem Gebiet der Wirtschafts- und Sozialgeschichte des romischen und vor allem byzantinischen Agypten. Der Schwerpunkt seiner Arbeiten liegt auf der Stadt Oxyrhynchos, der besonders reiches Material zu dieser Epoche zu verdanken ist, sowie auf Fragen des Kolonats und der Struktur des Groagrundbesitzes. Viele seiner auf breitester Quellenbasis erarbeiteten Beitrage sind in schwer erreichbaren Publikationen erschienen - eine Reihe davon allein in russischer Sprache - und deshalb bisher kaum zuganglich. Der zu Ehren seines 85. Geburtstages publizierte Band bietet eine Auswahl von 28 der bedeutendsten Aufsatze in deutscher, englischer und franzosischer Sprache, von denen acht hier erstmals auf Deutsch vorgelegt werden. .

Who were the scribes that copied early Christian literature during the second and third centuries? What roles did they play in the reproduction and dissemination of these writings? To answer these questions, this study utilizes evidence from early Christian literature and the earliest Christian papyri--including their form, physical features, and textual characteristics.

This paper is a contribution to the topological study of vector fields on manifolds. In particular we shall be concerned with the problems of exist ence of r linearly independent vector fields. For r = 1 the classical result of H. Hopf asserts that the vanishing of the Euler characteristic is the necessary and sufficient condition, and our results will give partial extens ions of Hopf's theorem to the case r > 1. Arecent article by E. Thomas [10] gives a good survey of work in this general area. Our approach to these problems is based on the index theory of elliptic differential operators and is therefore rather different from the standard topological approach. Briefly speaking, what we do is to observe that certain invariants of a manifold (Euler characteristic, signature, etc. ) are indices of elliptic operators (see [5]) and the existence of a certain number of vector fields implies certain symmetry conditions for these operators and hence corresponding results for their indices. In this way we obtain certain necessary conditions for the existence of vector fields and, more generally , for the existence of fields of tangent planes. For example, one of our results is the following THEOREM (1. 1). Let X be a compact oriented smooth manifold 0/ dimension 4 q, and assume that X possesses a tangent fteld of oriented 2-planes (that is, an oriented 2-dimensional sub-bundle 0/ the tangent vector bundle).
