After the end of the Republic, Augustus and his successors were faced with the task of re-stabilising the social and political order. An emphasis on traditional values was a particularly important part of it. This edited volume, which has its origins in a special research group (Sonderforschungsbereich) in Dresden, a oeInstitutionality and Historicitya, deals with the relationship between Roman values and the political strategies and changing social roles of the early Principate as reflected in contemporary literary communication.
