Cédric Brélaz is writing a monograph on the various forms of popular participation in the political life of Greek cities from the beginning of Rome’s interference in the East until late antiquity. His project aims to reintegrate the period 200 BCE to 500 CE, frequently overlooked by scholarship, into the broader history of democracy.
