Reviews

"Shepardson offers a compelling and insightful take on the transformation of the empire's cultural terrain in the decades after Constantine's conversion and the Nicene Council."--CHOICE (11/01/2014)
"The synthesis presented in Controlling Contested Places is exciting and very welcome ... [Shepardson's] work provides a clear template for further inquiry about geography and memory beyond Antioch in the world of Late Antiquity, and useful tools to address them."-- (05/08/2015)
"S. has the ability to take complex concepts in spatial theory and apply them creatively to ancient contexts without burdening the reader with dense theoretical jargon, adding thus both strength and clarity to her arguments, and also making the book accessible to not only specialists in the field--who will certainly find her applications intriguing--but also intermediate students of Late Antiquity."--Vigiliae Christianae
