About this item

Historians of late antiquity examine the state, culture and society, and religion of Italy under Ostrogothic rule, beginning with Odovacer, who deposed the last Roman emperor of the West in 476 and ending with the "official" conclusion of the Gothic War in 554, when Justinian issued the Pragmatic Sanction. Among the topics are ideologies and transitions of the Ostrogothic Kingdom, the Senate at Rome, Goths and Gothic identity, the heroine and the historian: Procopius of Caesarea on the troubled reign of Queen Amalasuentha, barbarizing the bel paese: environmental history, the Roman church and its bishops, and mapping the church and asceticism in Ostrogothic Italy.
