Chapter Summary

Jones? planning of the Prosopography of the Later Roman Empire exemplifies his realism. His Roman studies mark an enormous advance in the knowledge of the structure and the functioning of the Empire and of its economy. Rebenich shows that Jones was well aware of the writings of his great predecessors, and that the careful reader of the Later Roman Empire will notice that Jones quite frequently seems to be responding, sometimes positively, often negatively to the writings of Otto Seeck, Ernst Stein and Michael Rostovtzeff. The emperor, his officials and his legislation are at the centre of many chapters of the Later Roman Empire. Jones was the first historian to reconstruct more or less the whole structure, including the conditions of employment, of the Late Antique bureaucracy. In the Later Roman Empire, the Theodosian and the Justinianic Codes are cited by Jones much more often than any other source.
