The barbarians of the fifth and sixth centuries were long thought to be races, tribes or ethnic groups who toppled the Roman Empire. This book proposes a new view, through a case study of the Goths of Italy between 489 and 554. The author suggests wholly new ways of understanding barbarian groups and the end of the Western Roman Empire. The book also proposes a complete reinterpretation of the evolution of Christian conceptions of community, and of so-called "Germanic" Arianism.

Review:

"Amory makes a significant contribution in his book on the Ostrogoths.... ...this extraordinarily rich book is a landmark in the study of the early middle ages in Italy." Michael Maas, Church History

"Patrick Amory has made a major contribution to the debate over identity and ethnicity that has dominated the historiography of late antiquity for at least two decades with the publication of this decidedly iconoclastic book." Thomas S. Burns, American Historical Review

"...this volume, which is so carefully and meticulously researched, will undoubtedly be the standard point of departure for any further study on the Ostrogoths. Amoryhas also set a challenging standard of scholarship for those who plan to write any future volumes on the peoples who settled in the western Roman Empire." Speculum

"...invaluable in illustrating the intermingling of the multi-ethnic people who entered Italy..." Medieval Prosopography

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The barbarians of the fifth and sixth centuries were long thought to be races, tribes or ethnic groups who toppled the Roman Empire and racist, nationalist assumptions about the composition of the barbarian groups still permeate much scholarship on the subject. This book proposes a new view, through a case-study of the Goths of Italy between 489 and 554. It contains a detailed examination of the personal details and biographies of 379 individuals and compares their behaviour with ideological texts of the time. This inquiry suggests wholly new ways of understanding the appearance of barbarian groups and the end of the western Roman Empire, as well as proposing new models of regional and professional loyalty and group cohesion. In addition, the book proposes a complete reinterpretation of the evolution of Christian conceptions of community, and of so-called Germanic Arianism. Seller Inventory # AAV9780521526357
