Being Roman after Rome 3

Being Roman after Rome

In Late Antiquity and in the first medieval centuries, political identities emerged under the long shadow of Rome. Being Roman could mean many things in the period, for instance, Greek-speaking subjects of the Byzantine Empire, inhabitants of the city of Rome, autonomous civic or regional groups, Latin speakers under ‘barbarian’ rule in the West or, increasingly, representatives of the Church of Rome. The shifting concepts of Romanness represent a methodological challenge for Medievalists. This has led to a fruitful international debate, to which SCIRE will contribute by connecting it with its studies on ethnicity and social identity.

Session I
In the first session, Walter Pohl will give an introduction to the different ways to be Roman in the early Middle Ages and to the methodological and typological questions that they raise. Cinzia Grifoni will tackle the questions from a semantic perspective and Marianne Pollheimer will analyse traces of Romanness in Early Medieval sermons.

Session II
The second session will continue the survey of forms of early medieval Romanness. The focus here will be on the city of Rome on the one hand, and on Frankish perceptions on the other. Clemens Gantner will analyse various aspects of Romanness in 8th-century Rome, concentrating on expressions of allegiance to the Eternal City on the one hand and to the empire on the other. Andreas Fischer will then show how Romans were depicted and labelled in the 7th-century Fredegar-Chronicle. Finally, Richard Corradini will be focusing on a single manuscript, Walahfrid Strabo's Vademecum (Sankt Gallen Stiftsbibliothek 878). Through its intricate use of fragments of various Christian historiographical sources, this compilation allows us not only to gauge the interests of its main composer, but also the use of the Late Antique Codex-Calendar of 354. Rosamond McKitterick will then give a response to the two sessions on Being Roman after Rome.

Ethnicity & Christian Discourse
in the Early Middle Ages


Location

Theatersaal der ÖAW
Sonnenfelsgasse 19
1010 Vienna

Programme (PDF)


The conference will look at early medieval ethnicity in the context of other identities. In the period when Europe was Christianized, kingdoms named after ethnic groups came to dominate much of Europe. The main interest is to explore the impact of Christianity on the ways in which ethnicity became a political issue in the post-Roman world. Contrary to some interpretations based on Roman perceptions, ethnicity is not simply a barbarian form of social integration, which was established on former Roman territory by victorious barbarians. The bulk of our written sources from the period about ethnic and political matters are more or less inspired by Christian discourses and attitudes. How did Christian discourse shape the contemporary significance of ethnic identities? How did the meaning of ethnicity change during the transition from the Roman empire to a multitude of kingdoms in the West? And which role did other identities play in the reshaping of the political and cultural landscape of medieval Europe?

History & Medieval StudiesGenetic
Towards a Pilot Project


Public Presentation:
Sitzungssaal der ÖAW, Stiege 1, 1. Stock, Dr. Ignaz Seipel-Platz 2, 1010 Wien
Mon, 30 January 2012, 9.00-12.30

The swift progress of genetic research has opened up new perspectives for the study of history. In particular, recent technological innovations in deciphering the genome in ancient DNA allow posing new questions about the history of populations, following a line of research laid out by Luca Cavalli-Sforza and others but now at a level of detail impossible even a few years ago. However, and in contrast to the refinement of genetic tools, the methodology of drawing historical conclusions from genetic evidence has as yet hardly been discussed. How do we relate the clusters of genetic similarity to historical human groupings? Can DNA analysis help us to detect migrations, demographic processes, ethnic or territorial groups, or family structures?

On the basis of an initiative at UCLA, an international study group of geneticists, archaeologists, anthropologists and historians from the USA, Italy, Hungary, Germany and Austria has formed in order to conduct an exemplary study of early medieval material. The sixth century AD in Central Europe and Italy has the advantage to offer both extensive archaeological evidence from graves with rich apparel and a considerable body of written texts, which can be confronted with the results of genetic testing, and may help to refine the interdisciplinary methodology.

The workshop has two main goals: the first part, on Monday 30/1 morning, will offer a general discussion of the state of the art and the methodological options and problems, while the further proceedings in a more restricted circle will serve to discuss the shape of the planned pilot project.
