The Survival and Reception of Roman Antiquities in the Middle Ages 9 August 2008

This is just a brief note to state that Michael Greenhalgh’s The Survival of Roman Antiquities in the Middle Ages (Duckworth 1989) is available online. This is a very interesting study that presents some fascinating data concerning the fate of Roman monuments in the Western provinces, and especially France. It is, however, not as often quoted as it should be. Perhaps this is because the book is entirely devoid of illustrations or maps of any kind…Greenhalgh’s forthcoming Marble Past, Monumental Present: Building with Antiquities in the Medieval Mediterranean (Brill 2008) should be interesting as well.
