The Administration of the Roman Empire
This course is a study of Roman administration at the imperial, provincial and municipal levels. The objective is to understand why Roman hegemony over the entire Mediterranean (and beyond) was virtually unchallenged for centuries. Because of the lack of good literary evidence, students will become familiar with a wide variety of documents (in translation): inscriptions, coins, papyri, literary passages, etc. PREREQ: related 3000-level course or permission of the instructor.
