Breviaries, brief accounts of Roman history, are the main element of the historiographical output of the second half of the 4th century AD. The knowledge they contain reflects the various needs for information of people who were at the crossroads of classical education and Christianity. The “ancient Romans” were still important for Christian identity. This study on the culture of history provides a detailed evaluation of breviaries and their reception from the points of view of social and intellectual history.
