In this illuminating study Liebeschuetz examines two fundamental themes of Late Antiquity: the barbarization of the Roman army and the interrelation of Church and secular government. He discusses Alaric's Goths in the West, who were treated as a federate regiment rather than a migrating tribe; how the civilian authorities at Constantinople maintained control over the largely German army in a conflict that culminated in the Gainas rising; and how the same authorities came into conflict with John Chrysostom, the bishop of Constantinople, and had him deposed.
