Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2011; paperback; pp. xvi, 319; . 00; 0 Kate Cooper explores the fall of the Roman Empire through the continuity and change of the marital relationship. Focussing on late antiquity (fourth to sixth centuries) she provides invaluable insight into the changes in marriage laws and customs, recognising the role Christianity played in its transformation. A copy of the text in translation is included in the appendix. The book is divided into five chapters, the first three devoted to the role of Christianity in changing the socio-political context of late antiquity.

Edward Gibbon laid the fall of the Roman Empire at Christianity's door, suggesting that 'pusillanimous youth preferred the penance of the monastic to the dangers of a military life ... whole legions were buried in these religious sanctuaries'. This surprising study suggests that, far from seeing Christianity as the cause of the fall of the Roman Empire, we should understand the Christianisation of the household as a central Roman survival strategy. By establishing new 'ground rules' for marriage and family life, the Roman Christians of the last century of the Western empire found a way to re-invent the Roman family as a social institution to weather the political, military, and social upheaval of two centuries of invasion and civil war. In doing so, these men and women - both clergy and lay - found themselves changing both what it meant to be Roman, and what it meant to be Christian.
