Shifting Frontiers in Late Antiquity

Shifting Frontiers in Late Antiquity






Publisher:  Ashgate Publishing, Limited
Summary: "Shifting Frontiers In Late Antiquity" surveys the third to the seventh century Roman world, from Britain to Mesopotamia, and from Dacia to Egypt. Its primary concern is to clarify the role of Late Antiquity as a chronological boundary between the world of antiquity, and the Byzantine, Islamic, and medieval worlds, focusing, in particular, on geographical and metaphorical frontiers. The definition and role of the phy...sical frontier is defined; how the frontiers were perceived (whether on the borders of the empire or within it); social, ethnic, and religious categories are all investigated; similarly the effects that frontier regions had the populations living within them. The metaphorical uses on the frontier, examinations of boundaries of gender, culture, and spirit are also explored. "Shifting Frontiers In Late Antiquity" unites expertise from the fields of history, art history, archaeology, and literature, to draw a comprehensive and interdisciplinary picture of the realities, metaphors and ideologies of frontiers in Late Antiquity. "Shifting Frontiers In Late Antiquity" is an impressive volume of contemporary scholarship and essential for all Antiquity Studies reading lists. [read more]
