Brown, P., The World of Late Antiquity, AD 150–750 (New York, 1972) and The Rise of Western Christendom: Triumph and Diversity, AD 200–1000 (Chichester, UK, 2013, 3rd ed.) focus heavily on the cultural and religious history of the late Roman Empire. Brown’s pathbreaking work has helped define Late Antiquity as a field. Students are encouraged to read these two studies along with Brown’s more thematic monographs.Google Scholar
Jones, A. H. M., The Later Roman Empire AD 284–602 CE: A Social, Economic, and Political Survey, 2 vols. (Baltimore, 1964) remains the most comprehensive study of the political, social, and administrative institutions of the late Roman Empire. Readers looking for a more succinct book on these topics can consult S. Mitchell, A History of the Later Roman Empire, 284–641 AD (Malden, MA, 2015, 2nd ed.), which covers some religious developments as well. Both books include broad narratives of late ancient history, but readers can also use the still valuable study by J. Bury, History of the Later Roman Empire, 2 vols. (New York, 1958, reprint of the original published in 1911).Google Scholar
Cameron, A.’s two volumes, The Later Roman Empire (Cambridge, MA, 1993) and The Mediterranean World in Late Antiquity, AD 395–700 (London, 1993), offer more streamlined discussion that synthesizes political, social, cultural, and religious developments.
