During the shift from Republic to Empire, the Roman upper class adjusted standard values to accommodate the arrival of the monarchy. Freed Slaves and Roman Imperial Culture (PDF) takes a look at the methods which members of the elite appropriated techniques from freed slaves to negotiate their relationship to the princeps and to redefine steps of specific development. Primarily through the medium of inscribed burial monoliths, Roman freedmen got in a more comprehensive discussion about power, virtue, honor, memory, and the nature of the human life course. Through this procedure, previous slaves put in an extensive impact on the transformation of noble values at a defining moment in Roman history.
