Presenter:Dean Hammer, Franklin and Marshall CollegeRespondent:Anthony Pagden, UCLATitle:“Were the Roman People Sovereign?”Abstract:[This] paper takes up the question of whether we can talk meaningfully about sovereignty in the Roman republic. The argument addresses the contending claims of those who see sovereignty as operative in the Republic and those who posit a sharp break between Roman politics and sovereignty, suggesting that both views flatten the historical gradations and operation of Roman power. I argue for a notion of foundational authority rather than sovereignty as a way to understand how the res publica imagined, organized, and recognized itself as indivisible and perpetual.Paper:Click here to download.
