New Book Series from Oxford University Press


Late Antiquity has unified what in the past were disparate disciplinary,

chronological, and geographical areas of study. In this spirit, Oxford

Studies in Late Antiquity will provide a venue for the finest new late

antique scholarship, with coverage extending from the late Roman

world to the Sassanid, Byzantine, and early Islamic and Carolingian

worlds. The series welcomes proposals relating to a wide array of

methodological approaches including, but not limited to, history, society,

culture, religion, literature, archaeology, art history, papyrology,

numismatics, palaeography, demography, prosopography, linguistics,

gender studies, family history, and rhetorical and literary theory.

Series Editor: Ralph Mathisen is Professor of History, Classics, and

Medieval Studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

and the Editor of the Journal of Late Antiquity.
