Summary note:
The political system of the Roman republic was marked by two areas of tension: Because there was no nobility by birth, but instead social ranking had to be attained through political activity, there was competition among the members of senatorial families. On the other hand, decision-making was based on consensus, and therefore was done through negotiation, which had to end with broad agreement. Trust in one's opponent was an essential condition for the simultaneous functioning of competition and consensus. This book investigates the functions, foundations, and forms of trust, as well as the strategy of self-presentation as trustworthy for actors in the political theater of Rome.
