<p>Imperil panegyrics have often been dismissed as mere flattery of no literary merit and limited historical value. In recent years, increasing interest in the study if the history of the later Roman empire has led scholars and to take a fresh look at panegyrics and to examine their role in the society of the late antique world. Detailed studies of individual works are necessary for this examination and reevaluation of imperial panegyric.
