He had studied the functioning of the Roman Empire in the perspective of the Emperor s activities, from Augustus to Constantine- as well as the Republic during the last two centuries BC in order to revalue the people within the institutions- and finally the Near East from Augustus to Constantine, and then to the Muslim conquest. He uses to be engaged with the whole evidence (literary, epigraphic, papyrological, juridical and archaeological) that he examines closely with revived view-points. Distinguished and younger scholars have dealt, during a seminar, with the main aspects of Millar s research, its reception and the reactions it has raised, and proposed surveys about current inquiries, as well as perspectives for future studies. Fergus Millar est l auteur d une uvre historique renouvelant l approche du monde romain.

Sa m thode consiste en l interrogation toujours nouveaux frais des sources disponibles, litt raires, pigraphiques, papyrologiques, juridiques ou arch ologiques. Ce volume r unit les interventions d un s minaire visant confronter une uvre, son accueil et sa r ception, ainsi que les r actions qu elle a provoqu es, en privil giant les perspectives de renouvellement de ces derni res ann es.
