16 p, 300.8 KB Administração imperial e aquisição de poder na Antiguidade Tardia : agentes de poder sob a ótica de Sinésio / Farias Junior, José Petrúcio de (Universidade Federal do Amapá)
Com base na análise comparativa entre o Código Teodosiano, especificamente as leis promulgadas no IV século, e os discursos De Regno e De Providentia de Sinésio de Cirene, produzidos por ocasião de sua embaixada a Constantinopla, refletimos sobre as estratégias de aquisição de poder político no Império Romano tardio, tendo em vista os mecanismos institucionais legais e não-legais que asseguravam o ingresso a cargos políticos na administração imperial e de que maneira tais mecanismos reafirmaram a teoria de declínio do Império Romano pela historiografia contemporânea.
