The postdoctoral researcher will author and co-author a number of articles exploring the nomenclature and imagery of Byzantine emperors and the role of religion and the urban environment in the conceptualisation of ‘traditional’ emperorship.
Project 2: ‘Gallic Rulers and Elites’ investigates the various ways in which the claims to power by western emperors, local monarchs and leaders, and popes between 284 and 565 AD were anchored in traditional Roman concepts and terminology. The postdoctoral researcher will author and co-author a number of articles exploring the prominent role of local (Christian) elites on the basis of available texts and surviving imagery and architecture.
