- p. 273-288. Abstract: Eugippius’ Vita Seuerini features un peculiar model of leadership in the end of the 5th century. Indeed Severinus, though concealing his aristocrat origin and refusing to accept any institutional position, both civil and ecclesiastical, constrains roman ciuesand even Rugi from the cities of Noricum to adopt new religious and social practices (fasting, praying, paying tithe). A careful examination of the document shows that he places himself in the centre of a network, not because he would simply create links with the network members, but because each link he builds allows him to strengthen another link. Thus he manages to give a coercive force to his "advices" by systematically backing them on the intervention of a third party, who clasps the one to whom the order was given in a binding network of constraint. 12. CAPUCINE NEMO-PEKELMAN.
