Keynote by Pr. Leonora Neville : Romans in the East, Roman Religion, and Unbecoming Roman
For well over a decade now, Byzantine scholars have sought to answer thorny questions of the Byzantines’ identity:
These questions continue to spark debate in the field and likely will for some time. However, as we come to accept that Byzantines are generally identified as Romans, a number of questions emerge. As we appreciate Romanness, when and how does that Romanity stop? What social factors lead Romans to deny Romanness to others? What does the process of de-Romanization look like in the literary and material domains? Are there sharp breaks in the process or is it one of continuity and transformation?
The present seminar series aims to address a number of these questions, asking us how did one unbecome a Roman? When did people finally answer the question “to be a Roman or not to be a Roman '' with a negative answer.
