Volume 4 // Restauration and Destructuration in the Late Ancient Times

This volume regards the time period of the ancient world focused on the so-called “late ancient epoch”, i.e., from the last moment of the classical civilization to the collapse of the Roman empire. In fact, the last pages expand on the passage from the ancient world to the Middle Age and on the elements of continuity and clash that manifest themselves during the passage. It is a dramatic segment of history that has long been interpreted just as a crisis, decline and barbarization more than the moment of other cultures emerging, like the Christian and the barbarian ones, which made their generous contribution to the history of the mankind. The volume gives much space to the study of the cultural, religious and scientific phenomena. But, obviously, as always, the study of a society: its economy, its fiscal system and money, its transformation on the geographical map –  traces the structural lines along which these phenomena move and develop. We are dealing with a work which is ideologically grounded and historically innovative, that concludes in the appropriate way a series that has been welcomed by critics, scientists and audience.
