This chapter presents some concluding thoughts. It argues that any view of elections along the lines of ‘the emperors chose all the key bishops’; or, ‘bishops appointed other bishops to their own number’; or ‘the aristocracy controlled elections in the post-Constantinian period’ must be rejected as too simplistic. Episcopal elections were complex, and often demonstrated a unique interplay between the different layers of late antique society.
