In Readers and Reading Culture in the High Roman Empire, William Johnson examines the system and culture of reading among the elite in second-century Rome, with a focus on specific communities witnessed in surviving literary sources and in the papyri. The result is a rich cultural history of individual reading communities that differentiate themselves in interesting ways even while in aggregate showing a coherent reading culture with fascinating similarities
and contrasts to the reading culture of today.
