The article aims to present a review-discussion upon recent monographs that contributes to a new common ‘great narrative’ about Early Middle Ages and the transformation of the Roman world in the West and in the East. The main contribution comes from Chris Wickham, but I will take into account, among others, Jean-Pierre Devroey and John Haldon’s works. I will present an historical narrative focused on the forms of state funding and the relationships between state and social fabric, with a special regard for elites, shedding light on social and economic changes, meeting points and differencies among the political and territorial bodies of the early medieval Mediterranean.

Abstract

The article aims to present a review-discussion upon recent monographs that contributes to a new common ‘great narrative’ about Early Middle Ages and the transformation of the Roman world in the West and in the East. The main contribution comes from Chris Wickham, but I will take into account, among others, Jean-Pierre Devroey and John Haldon’s works. I will present an historical narrative focused on the forms of state funding and the relationships between state and social fabric, with a special regard for elites, shedding light on social and economic changes, meeting points and differencies among the political and territorial bodies of the early medieval Mediterranean.
