Studies in Ancient Monarchies

Whereas in the Ancient Near East and in the Germanic kingdoms of Late Antiquity monarchy was the normal and accepted way of organizing political power, among the Greeks and Romans monarchic regimes were developed as secondary formations within political orders that were incompatible with it in structural and normative terms. These conditions produced fundamental differences in the way monarchy was understood and represented in the different cultural contexts and periods.

Such differences can best be observed by way of historical comparison. The Studies in Ancient Monarchies include works that facilitate comparison by the explicit recourse to methods from the social and literary sciences, discussing various different cases or focusing on one particular monarchy, in order to contribute to a broader debate on monarchy as a specific phenomenon of ancient politics and culture.
