About this item

Imre sets out to reconcile the apparently progressive and avant-garde Constitutio Antoniniana with the autocratic Roman Emperor who promulgated it-- Caracalla, known for his murderous rages, militaristic iconography, and assertion that his regime was divinely sanctioned. In July 212, Caracalla extended the previously exclusive right of civitas to nearly every single free person living within his realm. A copy of the edict was discovered at the beginning of the 20th century. Imre investigates Caracalla's rationale for introducing the legislation, gathering up the individual motivating factors that previous scholars have identified, and setting them against one another to assess their relative importance. He covers contexts, the fiscal rationale, the military rationale, Alexander imitatio, and securing the Caracallan Empire. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
