A Political and Military History

In this volume, Hugh Elton offers a detailed and up to date history of the last centuries of the Roman Empire. Beginning with the crisis of the third century, he covers the rise of Christianity, the key Church Councils, the fall of the West to the Barbarians, the Justinianic reconquest, and concludes with the twin wars against Persians and Arabs in the seventh century AD. Elton isolates two major themes that emerge in this period. He notes that a new form of decision-making was created, whereby committees debated civil, military, and religious matters before the emperor, who was the final arbiter. Elton also highlights the evolution of the relationship between aristocrats and the Empire, and provides new insights into the mechanics of administering the Empire, as well as frontier and military policies. Supported by primary documents and anecdotes, The Roman Empire in Late Antiquity is designed for use in undergraduate courses on late antiquity and early medieval history.

Was wäre aus der kleinen unterdrückten christlichen Sekte geworden, wenn Kaiser Konstantin nicht diese Religion angenommen hätte? Wäre alles anders gekommen? Gäbe es heute ein Europa, das sich gerne als christlich präsentiert, wäre es säkularer, wäre es islamisch oder heidnisch? Die Fragen, die der große französische Althistoriker Paul Veyne aufgreift, betreffen ein für Europa entscheidendes Jahrhundert: Was machte den christlichen Glauben für den Kaiser so attraktiv? Welche Art von Avantgarde repräsentierten die Christen für ihn? Welche Veränderung durchlief der schon vorhandene heidnische Antisemitismus? Welche Rolle spielte die Idee des Monotheismus? Und nicht zuletzt: Was bedeutete die Frage nach dem „wahren“ Glauben, die die Christen mit solcher Vehemenz stellten?
