The paper explores the relationship between the Senate of Rome and the imperial government from an institutional point of view and in a broad chronological perspective. It starts from the age of Constantine, when we witness the emergence of a new balance in the Roman institutions, down to the end of the fourth century, when this framework begins to break down; then it goes from the years of Theodosius I down to the end of the Western Roman empire: a period when the senatorial class acquires increasing autonomy at the expense of the imperial system.

Abstract

The paper explores the relationship between the Senate of Rome and the imperial government from an institutional point of view and in a broad chronological perspective. It starts from the age of Constantine, when we witness the emergence of a new balance in the Roman institutions, down to the end of the fourth century, when this framework begins to break down; then it goes from the years of Theodosius I down to the end of the Western Roman empire: a period when the senatorial class acquires increasing autonomy at the expense of the imperial system.
