Abstract:This is a work about the relationship between an historical event, the battle of Adrianople, and a document, Vegetius’ De Rei Militari . In 376 C.E. the Roman Empire stretched from southern Scotland to modern Iraq. That year, the Eastern Roman Emperor Valens engaged a group of barbarians who are usually designated by the term “Goths.” In a battle that lasted more than five hours, the Goths destroyed the Eastern Roman Army and killed the Emperor Valens. One hundred years later the Western Roman Empire had ceased to exist. Sometime between the year 376 C.E. and 476 C.E., a Roman author named Flavius Vegetius Renatus responded to a period of decline by presenting to the Roman Emperor the work De Rei Militari . This dissertation is a complete analysis of Flavius Vegetius Renatus' De Rei Militari and the application of its concepts to the military doctrines of the migration period. The evidence demonstrates that the concepts found within the De Rei Militari were used during the migration period by the Roman Army, and then by the military forces of the Byzantine army during the sixth and seventh centuries C.E. Vegetius’ proposal must be seen in the context of the ongoing intellectual process of synthesizing Roman military doctrine to answer this threat. His proposal simply states in allowing Roman heavily armored infantry to deteriorate, Rome’s military had made a huge mistake. His proposal sought to remedy that mistake. He believes the situation at that time had not deteriorated so far as to be beyond redemption and traditional Roman military concepts could be successful under the right commanders. The battle of Adrianople marked the beginning of a period of military challenges for the Roman Empire that lasted over a century. Although the course of the battle of Adrianople was determined by factors with which the Romans were well acquainted, the battle also marked the debut of a new level of sophisticated cavalry warfare, represented by the Huns. The challenge that the Romans faced was how to successfully combat traditional foes while developing new tactics and strategies to cope with this new level of threat.
