Abstract

Roman cities relied on privileged guilds to function. Craftsmen guilds (collegia fabri) took pride of place but remain much debated. We study their spread, membership, organization, influence and impact on economic development. Our theoretical framework is based on social capital theory and new institutional economics. Methodologically we rely on GIS, prosopography & social network analysis, norm analyses and entitlement mapping.
