    Abstract

    This volume presents revised versions of ten papers delivered at a workshop in Cardiff in May 1998: The essays are concerned with the nature of authority exercised by members of the late antique religious hierarchy, or individuals closely connected to them, as depicted in literary texts. As the editors remark in their preface (ix-xiii), historians these days are increasingly sensitive not only to different types of authority, but also to how that authority is represented or manipulated by the authors of texts.
