The Theodosian Age (A.D. 379-455): Power, place, belief and learning at the end of the Western EmpireRosa García-Gasco, Sergio González Sánchez and David Hernández de la Fuente 2013 © BAR Publishing
The Theodosian Age was a controversial and fascinating period in the Late Roman Empire. Religious controversies and barbaric strife distressed the population. However, there was a remarkable blossoming of the arts, as evidenced by the literary and philosophical trends: a paradoxical first Renaissance of the Classical World at a 'time of anxiety'. The present volume combines diverse interests and methodologies with a single purpose: to give an overall picture of the new trends and perspectives currently used in the research of the epoch of Theodosius the Great and his successors, with special emphasis on the dynamics of places, power, belief and learning, and their mutual interdependencies. This monograph, stemming from the 2010 2nd International Congress on Late Antiquity held in Segovia (Spain), offers a scientific update and a dialogue between several disciplines. The Theodosian Age (AD 379-455): Power, Place, Belief and Learning at the End of the Western Empire is structured in two main sections — Ancient History and Archaeology, and Philosophy and Literature — and includes among the contributors some of the most relevant scholars in their fields: P. Barceló, M. V. Escribano, G. Montes Cala, R. Sanz Serrano, N. Christie, etc.
