The political currency of negotiation and reconciliation in the triumviral period

Activity: Academic and Industrial eventsConference, workshop or symposium


This paper offers an overview of the tensions inherent in the triumvirate’s formation and maintenance in terms of a rhetoric of peace and reconciliation. It examines the initial formation in October 43 BCE drawing out some social structures and political ideologies used to construction a space of negotiation and reconciliation between the main political players. Following on from such a framework, the paper considers to what extent these structures facilitated conflict resolution and yet also offered a means of articulating control through the language of unity and agreement, in contrast to contestations and competition of ownership of ideals in the 40s BCE.
