Furbetta on Interactional Dynamics

Luciana Furbetta wrote ‘Dinamiche interazionali tra le élites e il potere a partire dalla testimonianza delle epistole di Sidonio Apollinare e Avito di Vienne’, Rivista Storica dell’Antichità 53 (2023) 297-313.

Abstract. The paper proposes some reflections on the possibility of combining the linguistic-philological analysis of late antique letter collections with the study of communication processes. In particular, we aim to study the modes of social interaction and mechanisms of action orientation within aristocratic circles between the power (with reference to the courts of barbarian kings and the ecclesiastics). The field of application chosen as a case study are the letters of Sidonius Apollinaris and Avitus of Vienne.
