Fifty Years of Prosopography by Averil Cameron
Book DescriptionThis book presents the first interdisciplinary discussion by leading international historians of the important methodological tool known as prosopography - the collection of all known information about individuals within a given period. With the advent of computer technology it is now possible to gather and store such information in increasingly sophisticated and searchable databases, which can bring a new dimension to traditional historical research. The book surveys the transition in prosopographical research from more traditional methods to the new technology, and discusses the central role of the British Academy, as well as that of French, German and Austrian academic institutions, in developing prosopographical research on the Later Roman Empire, Byzantium and now Anglo-Saxon and other periods. The contributions discuss both national histories of the discipline and its potential for future research. The book demonstrates mutual benefits and complementarity in such studies between the use of new technology and the highest standards of traditional scholarship, and in doing so it sets forth new perspectives and methodologies for future work.

Dialoguing in Late Antiquity, Paperback (May 2014)
Averil Cameron refutes an argument by some scholars that Christians did not dialogue after a wall of silence came down in the fifth century AD. Cameron shows that in late antiquity and throughout Byzantium Christians debated and wrote philosophical, literary, and theological dialogues, and she makes a case for their centrality in Greek literature.
Byzantine Matters, Hardback (May 2014)
For many of us, Byzantium remains "byzantine" - obscure, marginal, difficult. This book presents an original and personal view of the challenges and questions facing historians of Byzantium today.
Mediterranean World in Late Antiquity, Hardback (September 2011)
"Simultaneously published in the USA and Canada"--T.p. verso.
428 AD, Paperback (April 2011)» View all books by Averil Cameron
By focusing on a single year not overshadowed by an epochal event, this title provides a fresh look at Mediterranean civilization in the midst of enormous change - as Christianity takes hold in rural areas across the empire, as western Roman provinces fall away from those in the Byzantine east, and as power shifts from Rome to Constantinople.
