Centuriones ad Rhenum : les centurions légionnaires des armées romaines du Rhin

Abstract : The thesis of doctorate has been constructed about three large parts : the criticism of the sources, the album of th four hundred and nine centurions' notices and military and social study. The junior officers' corps that were making up the legionariy centurions who have been in command of a " centuria " in the Rhine's roman armies is full of contrast and similarities : heterogeneous by their careers as well below the centurionate as after this latter, their social origins or their marriages, it is homogeneous by the convergence of their social behaviours and their mentalities witch a very long service was ending up moulding. The study of the conditions of the service shows that the soldiers were drafted usually young and maintained in office up to ages often advanced. The transfers, with a more or less high frequency from period to period, were a characteristic of the rank. The attributions of the latter went beyound the functions of a centuria's commander and the tasks of maintenance of law and order as those of engineering or the officering of other types of units moved often away the centurions from the camp.
