Roman History

Statement:  Frederik studies how Augustus, Rome’s first Emperor, converted the public triumph from a shared ritual of the senatorial aristocracy into a strict monopoly of the imperial house. The ensuing book will suggest radical new directions in the way we conceive of the establishment and nature of the so-called Augustan Principate.
