Roman imperial policy from Julian to Theodosius by R. M Errington( )

15 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The division of the late Roman Empire into two theoretically cooperating parts by the brothers Valentinian and Valens in 364 deeply influenced many aspects of government in each of the divisions. Although the imperial policies during this well-documented and formative period are generally understood to have been driven by the religious and ideological aims of the emperors, R. Malcolm Errington argues that the emperors were actually much more pragmatic in their decision making than has previously been assumed." "The division of responsibilities between the emperors inevitably encouraged separate developments, which included the expansion of Constantinople into an imperial residence in the East. Regional separatism also allowed locally varying and often changing imperial attitudes toward the different forms of belief that had developed within the Christian church since its acceptance by Constantine, as well as toward non-Christian religious forms. Errington demonstrates that the main stimulus for action in this period nearly always came from below the level of the imperial government, and not from an imperial initiative. Drawing attention to the structure and practical functioning of the state and its administration, Errington argues that the emperors were fundamentally reactive to regionally supplied information, as Fergus Millar has asserted was the case for the High Empire. Thus, despite significant changes, the empire remained broadly traditional in its operations."--Jacket
A history of the Hellenistic world by R. M Errington( Book )

17 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A History of the Hellenistic World provides a new, authoritative account of the period following the reign of Alexander the Great. With clear narration and extensive documentation, the book explains the highly complex political history of the Hellenistic period." "The text thoroughly explores each region of the Hellenistic world, emphasizing the political metamorphosis of Greek society under the impact of Macedonian expansion. It highlights the evolving relationship between Greek city-states and the new monarchies, and traces the Macedonian roots of the creation of the Hellenistic world while examining the development of new non-Macedonian monarchies in Asia Minor."--Jacket
Philopoemen by R. M Errington( Book )

17 editions published between 1959 and 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The basis of the work is an examination of the ancient source material, in particular plutarch's 'Life of Philopoemen' and the fragments of polybius' Histories which deal with the Achaean League. An outline of the resultant interpretation of philopoemen's career is as follows. Until 222 B. C. he took no part in Achaean politics, but was involved solely with megalopolis. Between 222 and 211 philopoemen was in Crete representing the interests of Philip V of Macedon, from 210 to 200 in Achaea, where after attaining a military independence, of Macedonia with Philips encouragement, he used this attempt to join Rome. Defeated on this issue, in 200 he returned to Crete to help the Gortynians, Achean allies. In his absence his friend Aristaenus carried his policy and joined Achaea to Rome. On Philopoemen's return in 194 he first desired to cooperate with Flamininus; but when he discovered that flamininus was merely using Achaea for Roman policy Philopoemen began to press the letter of the law of the Achaean foedus with Rome at First misunderstanding , but finally exploiting Achaean olientela. He refused Rome any right of interference in Peloponnesian matters, although he himself was unable to find satisfactory solutions to many of the Achaens' problems, particularly those associated with exiles from Sparta and Messene. The Roman Senate, bound by its conventions could find no way round the impasse until after Philopoen's death in 182, when his party lost most of its influence in Achaea. This interplay of policies and purposes of the Senate and Philopoemen is worked out in the detail. The concluding chapter traces the developing weakness of his party after his death and attempts to correct some modern interpretation of Poybius' judgement of Philopoemen and his policies. Appendicies deal with source problems in the Achaean strategos list - and other pertinent problems
