What do we mean by “the Fall of the Roman Empire”?  Did classical civilization crash and burn? Or did it undergo cultural transformation with the arrival of new peoples and the rise of Christianity and Islam?  With these questions in mind, we survey the peoples, lands, and cultures of the Greco-Roman world from the second through eighth centuries CE.

Readings include:

Peter Brown, The World of Late Antiquity

Bryan Ward-Perkins, The Fall of Rome and the End of Civilization

Additional readings posted on our collab site.
