This book argues that the late empire saw substantial economic and social change, propelled by the powerful stimulus of a stable gold coinage that circulated widely. Exploiting a wide range of sources, Agrarian Change in Late Antiquity weaves together different strands of historiography (Weber, Mickwitz, papyrology, agrarian history) into a fascinating interpretation that challenges the minimalist orthodoxies about late antiquity and the ancient economy more generally.ContentsAbbreviations Introduction 1 The Rural Landscape of the Late Empire 2 Weber, Mickwitz, and the Economic Characterization of Late Antiquity 3 The Monetary Economy of the Late Empire and its Social Presuppositions 4 Existing Accounts of the Byzantine Large Estate 5 The Changing Balance of Rural Power A.D. 200-400 6 A Late Antique Aristocracy 7 Estates 8 Wage Labour and the Peasantry 9 Conclusion App. 1 Tables 1-12 App. 2 CJ X. 27.2.1-9: A Translation App. 3 The Relative Cohesion of Large Estates: Notes on the Topography of the Fayum in the Sixth and Seventh Centuries Glossary Bibliography Index
