Project: Memory of empire: the post-imperial historiography of Lata Antiquity

2013-01-01 – 2017-12-31

Abstract

The project offers the first comprehensive interpretation and reconstruction of all historiographical traditions in the Mediterranean from the 4th to the 8th c. AD. It advances the hypothesis that the historiography of this period should be understood as 'post-imperial': the literary, cultural, and political traditions of the Roman empire remained the point of reference at a time when that emire had largely distintegrated.
