Colloque Le IIIe siècle au XXIe siècle - Le Havre, 11-12/03/2020, Rouen (France)
The history of the Roman Empire in the 3rd century A.D. – limited to the years 235-284, or set in a wider period from the last Antonines to the reign of Constantine I – remains an active field in contemporary historiography. The standard works of Michel Christol or Klaus-Peter Johne, Udo Hartmann and Thomas Gerhardt, have been published more than ten years ago, and deserve updates on several points. The traditional interpretative model of a “crisis” has been heavily criticised and discussed (e.g. in the volume edited by Marie-Henriette Quet in 2006), but the alternative model of a slower “transformation” of the Roman world has not completely succeeded in replacing it as a comprehensive framework for understanding this complicated period.
