Alexander Hwang - Prosper of Aquitaine and the Fall of Rome

This workshop paper will examine Prosper of Aquitaine’s views concerning the political and social turmoil of the fifth century.  Among Prosper’s later works, which are concerned with advancing papal claims to power and authority, is a chronicle that contained the significant events of Prosper’s time.  This chronicle and his other writings from this later period reflects Prosper’s new found allegiance to the Roman Church, and it is through this lens that Prosper views the events of his time.
