Throughout his career, Professor John Haldon has served as an intellectual link between different academic cultures, methods, and disciplines. A true scholar of Byzantine society, his work combines a meticulous treatment of texts and material evidence with a holistic approach to social history. His ideas have been instrumental in opening up the study of the Byzantine world to new methodological perspectives and ever wider horizons for comparison with other political systems and structures across the European and Islamic worlds from late antiquity to early modern times. Based on a conference organized by the Center for Collaborative History at Princeton University in 2018 on the occasion of his 70th birthday, this book – more than just a Festschrift – takes stock of Haldon’s approach by focusing on the history of law and legal culture in the transformation of the Roman world.
