The Goths in the Fourth Century

Portada
Liverpool University Press, 1991 - 210 páginas

Of all the Germanic peoples who were later to carve out successor kingdoms to the Roman empire, much more is known of the Goths than of any other group in the period before the great migrations of the late fourth and early fifth centuries. The Goths are thus of unique importance in our evaluation of the kinds of changes that these migrations worked upon the tribal neighbors of the Roman empire, as well as upon the Roman empire itself.

This volume brings together many of the most important historical texts, the majority of them not previously available in English translation. Also included are representative selections, with commentary, from the Gothic New Testament, and, with ample illustration, the archaeological evidence unearthed by Soviet and Romanian scholars from the so-called Sîntan de Mures/Cernjachov culture associated with Gothic occupation of the trans-Danubian regions in the third and fourth centuries.
