Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled Collegia Centonariorum: The Guilds of Textile Dealers in the Roman West contains the table of contents, a list of charts and tables, a list of abbreviations, a note on presentation of inscriptions and the acknowledgements. The book attempts to understand the origins, functions, organizations, and social and legal status of the collegia centonariorum in the Roman Empire. It is divided into eight chapters and a conclusion. The first seven chapters concern the origin, historical development, various organizational aspects, and activities of the collegia centonariorum, particularly in the first three centuries AD. The last chapter looks closely at the evidence from the fourth century AD, when the epigraphic material has tapered off but specific legal rulings concerning the collegia centonariorum stand out.

Keywords: collegia centonariorum; historical development; Roman Empire
