Res Publica and the Roman Republic

'Without Body or Form'

Louise Hodgson

  • Provides a fresh perspective on both the political crises of the late Roman Republic and the attempts to resolve these crises through dubiously legal (and often outright illegal) emergency measures
  • Demonstrates how the increasing tendency of politicians to appeal to the res publica and the dangerous fragmentation of political legitimacy towards the end of the Republic transformed res publica as a concept
  • Offers a novel approach to the period from the perspective of a key, yet under-studied, Roman political concept
