Title: Exile in the Western Successor-States (435 - c.650)
Period: Pre 1500
Funded by: AHRC Studentship
Start year: 2014
In my thesis, I will examine the development of the penalty (or rather the penalties) of exile in the various kingdoms that replaced the Western Roman Empire.
Drawing on legal as well as literary sources, I will investigate the extent to which exile was maintained along Roman lines, as well as the various political, social, and religious factors that encouraged rulers to banish their subjects. As part of this, I will also be adopting a comparative perspective to determine the ways in which the application and experience of exile differed between kingdoms.
