Ancient Religions

You are here

Religion is a major research focus for many faculty in Classics, ranging from the cults of the Greek cities to the religions of Rome and its empire, from early Christianity to Late Antiquity, and covering the whole Mediterranean world and beyond. Faculty study the meaning of religion, its impact on social life, its role in the constitution of identity, its expression in visual and material culture.
