Details

This book focuses on how the Gauls of Late Antiquity perceived their Roman identity. Special attention is paid to ways of creating and maintaining the Roman identity by seeking and holding offices of the Roman Empire. The identity symbols, emotions as well as ethical and moral perceptions associated with the offices, are discussed in more detail. The status-related tensions between a Roman office-holder and the emperor, as well as the impact of Christianity and the German pressure on the notions and traditions related to office-holding, are highlighted separately.
