Theodosius II and the Making of Late Antiquity

23-24 March 2011

A two-day conference to be held at the Faculty of Classics, University of Cambridge.

Following on from the Unclassical Traditions conferences in 2007 and 2009 (the first now published as a supplement to the Cambridge Classical Journal), this meeting will explore a range of aspects of both Theodosius II (408-450) himself and the eastern Roman empire under his rule. Themes for discussion will include the Theodosian Code; politics and historiography; the Council(s) of Ephesus; heresiology; the representation of imperial power; the ecclesiastical historians; military leadership; and the imperial household.

Speakers will include Ed Watts (Indiana), Gillian Clark (Bristol), Peter van Nuffelen (Ghent), Thomas Graumann (Cambridge), Jill Harries (St Andrews), Boudewijn Sirks (All Souls, Oxford), Christopher Kelly (Corpus Christi, Cambridge), Kate Cooper (Manchester), Doug Lee (Nottingham) and Giusto Traina (Rouen).

The conference fee is £20, which includes lunches and refreshments on both days.

Organiser: Richard Flower
