For centuries, Roman emperors ruled a vast empire. Yet, at least officially, the emperor did not exist. No one knew exactly what titles he possessed, how he could be portrayed, what exactly he had to do, or how the succession was organised. Everyone knew, however, that the emperor held ultimate power over the empire. There were also expectations about what he should do and be, although these varied throughout the empire and also evolved over time. How did these expectations develop and change? To what degree could an emperor deviate from prevailing norms? And what role did major developments in Roman society - such as the rise of Christianity or the choice of Constantinople as the new capital - play in the ways in which emperors could exercise their rule? This ambitious and engaging book describes the surprising stability of the Roman Empire over more than six centuries of history.… (més)

The Roman emperorship was a bizarre and unique office. Its creators and most of its earliest occupants insisted that it was not an office at all, and certainly not a monarchic one. There was no agreement in antiquity about when precisely it began, and no consensus even among scholars today about when it may be said to have ended. Virtually everything about it was formally undefined, from its legal powers to the criteria which permitted it be transferred or assumed. Even its name varied situationally, and the choice to use any of Augustus, Caesar, imperator, princeps, autokrator, basileus or any of myriad other possibilities was one laden with subtext and consequence. Caesar Rules sets itself the ambitious challenge of filling the hole left by this acknowledged absence of definition by reconstructing how the Roman emperor was perceived and defined by those around him, in particular through their expectations of him. In this excellent volume, Olivier Hekster is remarkably successful at producing a sweeping, well-argued and engaging analysis which should provide an indispensable starting point for future studies on this most unusual position.
