New Perspectives on Late Antiquity free pdf Perhaps it is fully justified to think of Late Antiquity (3rd-7th centuries) as a first Renaissance of the classical world. This period can be considered a fundamental landmark for the transmission of Classical legacy and the transition between the ancient and medieval individual. During Late Antiquity the classical tradition or enkyklos paideia of Hellenism was linked definitively to the Judeo-Christian and Germanic elements that have modelled the Western World. The present volume combines diverse interests and methodologies with a singe purpose - unity and diversity, as a Neo-Platonic motto -, providing an overall picture of the new ways of research on Late Antiquity. This collective endeavour, stemming from a 2009 1st International Congress on Late Antiquity in Segovia (Spain), focuses not only on the analysis of new materials and latest findings, but rather puts together different perspectives offering a scientific update and a dialogue between several disciplines. "New Perspectives on Late Antiquity" contains two main sections - Ancient History and Archaeology, and Philosophy and Classical Studies - including both overview papers and case studies. Among the contributors to this volume there are some of the most relevant scholars on their fields, such as P. Brown J. Alvar, P. Barcelo, C. Codoner, F. Fronterotta, D. Gigli, F. Lisi or R. Sanz.
