Framing the Late Antique and Early Medieval Economy (FLAME) Project

Friday and Saturday in East Pyne 010
Sunday in Dickinson 211


This project will investigate the transition from Late Antiquity to the Early Middle Ages, covering Western Eurasia and North Africa over four centuries, from an innovative economical perspective. It will look closely and carefully into the changes in economy while using the most widely available - and underutilized - proxy, metal coinage, surviving in millions of published specimens.

Bishops and Generals, Rulers and Monks: Office-holding and the Transformation of Power at the End of Antiquity

During the fourth-century, Roman emperors greatly expanded the imperial bureaucracy, creating a new service elite that existed alongside the long-standing senatorial elite. Simultaneously, there were dramatic changes in the structure of government at the regional and local level, with a new division between civil and military authority, and the increasing importance of the leaders of Christian communities and churches. A series of child-emperors in the fifth-century saw the rise of powerful generalissimos, many of whom were regarded as barbarian outsiders.
