  • Notes:

             Marcovich began his professional career as a Byzantinist, a disciple of and assistant to the preeminent Byzantist of the time, Georg Ostrogorsky (1902-76). After serving as a translator during the war, he took up a position as Lecturer of Classics at the University of Belgrade, where he published inter alia Die Byzantinischen runden im Staatsarchiv Ragusa. From Belgrade Marcovich moved to India for a year and in 1955 became Professor of Classics and Philosophy at the Universidad de Los Angeles in Merida, Venezuela, a post which provided him the perquisite of spending one term each year at Cambridge, where he and his wife bought a house for their regular stays. In 1969 Marcovich succeeded Alexander Turyn (1900-81) at Urbana and remained there for the rest of his life. He thoroughly enjoyed living in the small but cosmopolitan community and took full advantage of its rich cultural life.  

             The quality, quantity, and range of Marcovich's scholarship was astonishing. Some 35 books and 300 articles issued from his pen, many of them in his period of “retirement.” From Sanskrit texts to Byzantine ones, from pagan to Christian, from Greek poetry to renaissance Latin, from Croatian oral poetry to Gnosticism, from palaeography to the history of religion­­––Marcovich seemed to cover nearly everything. He was, almost certainly, the pre-eminent Patristics textual scholar of his time. He once expressed to me his regret that he would not have enough time to re-edit the entire series, Die griechischen christlichen Schriftsteller. His edition/commentary on the pre-Socratic philosopher Heraclitus has been translated and revised several times since its appearance in 1967 and remains the standard work. His authoritative edition of Origen's Contra Celsum appeared several months after his death.

             Marcovich's many editions of Patristic texts were a marvel of “exact and creative textual criticism, in the best tradition of editing the classical texts,” as F.R. Adrados wrote. Marked by his superb paleographical skills, his thoroughness, his brilliance at emendation and his incredible learning, these editions are in fact commentaries as well as critical texts. Readers who have them immediately recognize a Marcovich edition by their full double apparatus, the one providing all the necessary information to make an informed judgment about the text, the other replete with parallels, many never noticed before, that are sometimes merely interesting, other times illuminating in novel and critical ways. 

             Greco-Roman religion and in Patristics brought him into frequent contact with Jewish texts and he was able to put his knowledge of classical Hebrew to good use in innovative interpretations. Marcovich's connections to the Israeli academic community were several. He served on the international editorial board of Scripta Classica Israelica for many years, was visiting professor at Tel Aviv University in 1991, and was honored by the Israel Academy of Sciences with its most prestigious award, appointment as Albert Einstein Fellow.

             Marcovich always acknowledged the role his wife Vera played in his scholarly labors. She managed her own and Miroslav's schedules and activities in order to maximize the amount of time he had for his work. She was ever his helpmate. She is renowned for the parties and dinners she held for Miroslav's colleagues and their friends.
