Editorial Reviews


Instead of relegating the late antiquity to the Gibbonian category of "Decline and Fall," the authors contributing to the present volume successfully attempt to consider this period in its own terms and without preconceived notions or value judgments, that is, as a time of monumental change, destruction, and reconstruction...This collection of essays truly brings to life the world of late antiquity in multiple fashions. The authors look both at East and West, they compare and contrast the role of Christianity and the role of the pagan religions. Their investigations rely not only on historical data, but also draw from recent research in archeology, art history, anthropology, and theology...All authors demonstrate a solid familiarity with most recent, especially international research. (Albrecht Classen Studi Medievali)
