 by protecting his subjects from denial of justice through special envoys authorized to administer justice and redress grievances. He curbed the powers of the local dukes and bishops, thus creating a centralized state, and he obtained the submission of the duchies of Spoleto and Benevento. In the north, he expanded his dominions at the expense of Bavaria. Liutprand died after attempting to bring Ravenna, which was under Byzantine rule, into his domain. After the brief reigns of Liutprand's nephew Hildeprand and of Ratchis, duke of Friuli, Liutprand's brother Aistulf acceded (749) and took Ravenna in 751.

Abstract: Liutprand of Cremona in Constantinople: the rhetoric of the compensation In this article, the author analyzes two works of Liutprand of Cremona, the Antapodosis and the Relatio of legatione constantinopolitana, from the perspective of the travel diary, highlighting the rhetorical resource that permanently becomes present in Liutprand's work, not for a substantial change in Constantinople between 949 and 968, but because the writer has changed: from deacon to bishop, from legacy of little range to imperial legacy.
