More is known about the Goths than the other peoples who invaded and divided up the Roman Empire. The Goths are thus an important reference point for discussions of tribal movements and their effects. This volume brings together some of the historical texts relating to the Goths - the speeches of Themistius, the "Passion of St. Saba" and evidence relating to the life and work of Ulfila. There are also extracts from the Gothic New Testament. The book also explores the archaeological evidence relating to the Sintana de Mures-Cenjachov culture. Taken together, these sources tell us a great deal about the social and religious organization of the Goths, and of the nature of their relations with the Roman state in the period before their fateful crossing of the Danube in 376.
