The Department of Archaeology of the Roman Provinces at the University Freiburg is hosting, from 20-23 November 2019, a conference on the source value of the Notitia Dignitatum. The venue of the conference is Haus zur Lieben Hand, Löwenstraße 16, D-79098 Freiburg i. Br.

This conference is the first such event in 45 years to focus on this document which remains crucial for a thorough understanding of Late Antiquity. Digitisation of all known fragments and manuscripts of the Notitia has enabled scholars to critically examine and compare all extant manuscripts, challenging interpretations that have been built upon use of fewer manuscripts. Moreover, due to its many illustrations, the Notitia Dignitatum is a unique document necessitating interdisciplinary collaboration between various study fields of antiquity. Speakers from 13 different countries will present their research in the disciplines of Ancient History, Epigraphy, Papyrology, Archaeology of the Roman Provinces, Archaeology of Late Antiquity, Art History, and Medieval History – achieving a truly interdisciplinary perspective!

Conference registration
The conference is free to attend for all interested individuals. However, registration by 1 November is essential due to restrictions of space. To register, please email:
