The Roman Censorship - 17/10/2020, Oxford (England)


go to CALL FOR PAPERS

Over half a century has passed since the publication of Jaakko Suolahti’s The Roman Censors: A Study on Social Structure. But much more remains to be said about position, the ‘social structure’, of censors across Roman society. Censors, elected (give or take) every five years, attaining ‘a pinnacle higher than any other honour’ (Plut. Cat. Mai. 16.1), were infrequently but regularly at the heart of the establishment and concretization of Rome’s social order. The very fabric of the city of Rome was altered whenever censors were elected. The variety of responsibilities leads to an enormous variety of possible approaches to the magistracy, which highlights the need not only for further research on each magistracy, but also the need for scholars to collaborate and share their methodologies and approaches.
