Imperial ceremony was a vital form of self-expression for late antique society. Sabine MacCormack examines the ceremonies of imperial arrivals, funerals, and coronations from the late third to the late sixth centuries A.D., as manifest in the official literature and art of the time. Her study offers us new insights into the exercise of power and into the social, political, and cultural significance of religious change during the Christianization of the Roman world.

Strana 5 - Hanc olim veteres vitam coluere Sabini, hanc Remus et frater, sic fortis Etruria crevit scilicet et rerum facta est pulcherrima Roma, septemque una sibi muro circumdedit arces.
Strana 1 - Olympo. Illo Vergilium me tempore dulcis alebat Parthenope, studiis florentem ignobilis oti, Carmina qui lusi pastorum audaxque iuventa, 565 Tityre, te patulae cecini sub tegmine fagi.
