Peristyle Buildings in Late Antiquity: Architecture, Landscape and Function


The Danubian provinces became a determining factor of imperial politics in Late Antiquity, which also is well attested in changes in civilian and military settlement at this time. Peristyle villae show different kinds of use, and such buildings were erected in cities and military bases as well as in the countryside. The project “Mutation of Architectural, Social and Landscape Space in the Mirror of Late Antique Peristyle Buildings along the Dabube (MASLAP)” focuses on architectural and social changes as well as the transformation of the landscape, as reflected by the Late Antique peristyle buildings along the Danube from the 3rd to the 7th centuries AD. The peristyle villae can investigate as social spaces (micro-scale), as architectural types (meso-scale) and as elements of a landscape (macro-scale). The analysis of these buildings within their environment use new survey methods, offering the opportunity of a diachronic approach and allowing us to comprehend the architectural landscape-related and social mutations these types of buildings underwent during Late Antiquity. In the final workshop, we shall present the results of the project combined with an overview of the state of research through selected examples ranging from Hispania via Italy to the Balkan Provinces.
