Zosimus’ Conception of the Emperor Theodosius’ ἀνδρεία

image of Mnemosyne

The purpose of this paper is to analyze the ethical and moral portrait of the emperor Theodosius in Zosimus’ New History. It is my working hypothesis that the historian subverted the rhetorical topics usually deployed in the basilikòs lógos to accommodate the emperor’s ethical portrayal to his religious and historiographical programme. In order to do so, Zosimus emptied the concept of ἀνδρεία from its philosophical and moral connotations.
