Course Content (Syllabus)
Starting with Rome’s expansive policy, from the second half of the 3rd cent. B.C. onwards, and the Roman administration’s main objectives (law and order maintenance and tax collection) the course will examine the provincial administrative system of the Roman Empire. The successive incorporations of the different regions into the provincial administrative system of the empire (provinciae) will constitute the frame, within which the following topics will be studied on the basis of selected literary, epigraphic and papyrological sources: Augustus’ administrative reforms, the distinction between senatorial and imperial provinces, the personnel of the provincial administration, the provincial jurisdiction, the relations between the Roman administration and the emperor, the intermediate role of the local administrations or of the army within the Imperial administration. Particular attention will be given to the taxation system and the judicial power of the Roman provincial authorities.
