Professional collegia: guilds or social clubs ?

(2011) ANCIENT SOCIETY. 41. p.187-195

Keywords
Scholars have long downplayed the role of professional associations (collegia) in the Roman economy. Comparisons with medieval or modern guilds are mostly rejected. Contrary to the guilds, collegia would not have been intended to regulate, support or protect the occupational interests of their members. In the light of New Institutional Economics this predominantly negative evaluation is shifting. The dossier presented here aims to set out and probe a number of new research lines for the future.
