  • Conference The Benefits of Office Privilege and Loyalty in the Ancient Mediterranean World

    05-30-17 Location: Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Main Building, Room 8-A-20

    Office holding, with all its privileges and burdens, is an important aspect for the creation of stability in ancient states. During this multidisciplinary workshop we want to explore how rulers in patrimonial societies secured the loyalty of an existing elite by confirming or increasing their status, or, in case the existing elite proved problematic, how they established new elites. The papers will address the often fuzzy borders between official and private, to what extend private gains from public office were permitted, and when office holders were punished for abuse.
