This paper tries to circumscirbe as clearly as possible the theme of
social, political and religious movements it the Late Roman Empire and
specially considers those movements which have been historically recorded under
the name of Bacaudae. The “ancient” Bacaudae leads us to the discovery of new
dimensions and extent: from Gaul to Romania, via Spain, without forgetting
Greece or even Egypt… The journey is guided by the evidence of rediscoved
surprising texts, some of which are rarely present (such as Siegebert de
Gremloux`s ) in selections of this kind.
