Social Mobility in Late Antique Gaul - Strategies and Opportunities for the Non-Elite (Paperback): Allen E. Jones Social Mobility in Late Antique Gaul - Strategies and Opportunities for the Non-Elite (Paperback)
Allen E. Jones
R999 Discovery Miles 9 990 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

In Social Mobility in Late Antique Gaul, Allen Jones explores the situation of the non-elite living in Gaul during the late fifth and sixth centuries. Drawing especially on evidence from Gregory of Tours' writings, he formulates a social model based on people of all ranks who were acting in ways that were socially advantageous to them, such as combining resources, serving at court, and participating in ostentatious religious pursuits, such as building churches. Viewing the society as a whole, and taking into account specific social groups, such as impoverished prisoners, paupers active at churches, physicians, and wonder-working enchanters, Jones creates an image of Barbarian Gaul as an honor-driven, brutal, and flexible society defined by social mobility. His work also addresses topics such as social engineering and competition, magic and religion, and the cult of saints.
