Abstract

The essay reconstructs, firstly, the modes of the Romanization of Sardinia; it analyzes the cultural and linguistic role played by the Church in Late Antiquity, and it examines the heritage of the Greek-Byzantine superstratum. Secondly, it deals with philological and linguistic analysis of the first written documents of Sardinian. The oldest written attestations of Sardinian, dated o datables to a period included between the beginning of the second half of the 11th century and the first twenty years of the 12th century. The time interval of reference of these texts is the terminus ante quem adopted in the volume, since what interests is also the long path that comes before them and that turns out to be enlightenable - given the sources fragmentary nature - only through the linguistic, cultural and historical sedimentations and stratifications of which they are witnesses and keepers. The terminus post quem is a long period that goes from 455, the date of the conquest of the island by the Vandals of Genseric, until the death of Gregory the Great (604), therefore, a century and a half, then, during which Sardinia, owing of events of which we deal with, structures the heritage of the ancient world and it delivers it to the Middle Ages of the Island.
