The interdisciplinary papers, which include historical, documentary, archaeological and architectural studies: discuss the relationship between the emperor and the gods under the Tetrarchy; names and titles; law; the political structure; Christianity in the Danube and Balkan provinces; Dalmatia; the restoration of Diocletian's palace and mausoleum in Split; German 19th-century portraits of Diocletian. An extensive gazetteer of Christian sites in the Danube and Balkan provinces concludes the book. Three papers in English, ten in German.
