When did Late Antiquity actually end? Peter Brown, who has done so much to define the field, once replied: 'always later than you think'. This book takes stock of this insight and, in continual conversation with Peter Brown's work, applies it to ever wider social and geopolitical horizons. The essays of this volume demonstrate that Late Antiquity is not just a period in which the late Roman world grew into the three successor cultures of the Roman Empire--the Latin West, Byzantium, and the Islamic world--but also a set of hermeneutical tools for exploring historical transformation. A late antique view considers both the profound plurality of past societies and the surprising instances when a culture coheres out of those differences. The studies here follow those motions of fracture and alignment, and they show how working along the lines of a single but deeply textured vision of Late Antiquity makes it possible to integrate different fields such as Roman, Byzantine, and Islamic studies, and to start a new conversation between ancient and medieval history.

About the Author:
Jamie Kreiner is Assistant Professor of History at the University of Georgia where she researches and teaches the history of Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages.

Helmut Reimitz (PhD, 1999, University of Vienna) is Professor of History at Princeton University and studies the history of the Early Middle Ages in Europe, focusing on the social and political transformations of the Latin West from the end of the Roman Empire to the Carolingian Empire (ca. 4th 10th centuries). Before joining Princeton in September 2008, he was head of the Early Medieval Department at the Institute for Medieval Research, Austrian Academy of Sciences. He is a member of several international networks, such as the European Science Foundation Project on the 'Transformation of the Roman World', and 'Texts and Identities in the Early Middle Ages' (cooperation of the Universities of Cambridge, Sorbonne, Utrecht, Leeds and Vienna). He has published a number of volumes on the history of the early Middle Ages and its meaning for the history of Europe. His books include Cultures in Motion (with Dan Rodgers and Bhavani Raman, 2013), Vergangenheit und Vergegenwartigung. Fruhes Mittelalter und Europaische Erinnerungskultur (with Bernhard Zeller, 2009), Staat im fruhen Mittelalter (with Stuart Airlie and Walter Pohl, 2006) and The Construction of Communities in the Early Middle Ages (with Richard Corradini and Max Diesenberger, 2003).
Review:
"Each of the essays in this volume demonstrates the impact of Brown's work, and often also of his teaching, while taking his insights into new territories. It is a warm and affectionate volume that vividly displays the debts of Brown's students and friends to his generous and influential presence, and to his long list of publications spanning five decades and two continents. [...] As the papers here demonstrate very well, the direction of [Brown's] own historical imagination has constantly evolved in his own publications, and the essays here amply testify to its extraordinary fruitfulness and impact." --Averil Cameron, Keble College (Oxford), The Medieval Review 17.01.17
