Empire of Honour: The Art of Government in the Roman World

Copertina anteriore
Clarendon Press, 1997 - 320 pagine
Jon Lendon offers a bold new analysis of how Roman government worked in the first four centuries AD. He contends that a despotism rooted in force and fear enjoyed widespread support among the ruling classes of the provinces on the basis of an aristocratic culture of honor shared by rulers and
ruled.
