32 - From Constantine to Justinian

from VI - Late Platonism
The Theodosian Code is a monumental endeavour which collected, organized and published all laws issued by the Roman emperors after and including Constantine I. This chapter talks about the heirs of Theodosius I, Zeno and the disappearance of the western emperor, and the age of Justinian. The interplay of the centrifugal factors that Theodosius' policies set in motion can first be seen clearly during the early days of Arcadius' and Honorius' reigns. The turbulence that beset the courts in Ravenna and Constantinople after 450 was ironically of great benefit to what might be called renegade populations. When Justinian inherited the throne, his goals and projects showed him to be a typical late-antique sovereign; nevertheless, he planted the seeds of change that would help bring about the end of the era. The era of late antiquity quietly came to an end when the Mediterranean became a frontier zone separating the people ruled by the Islamic, Byzantine and Frankish Empires.
