Show Summary Details


This book's Conclusion recapitulates some of its major findings, and offers suggestions for further work to be done. It also outlines a tentative historical narrative of policing during the early Roman Empire, with an even more tentative sketch of developments into late antiquity and the early Middle Ages. This study concludes that the growth of policing described in these chapters reveals a Roman state that was considerably more ambitious than previously thought.

Keywords: history of policing; early Roman Empire; late antiquity; early Middle Ages
