SPUNTI PER UNA RICERCA SULLA POLITICA RELIGIOSA IN ETA REPUBBLICANA NELLA GALLIA CISALPINA [Extrait] / [Verzár-Bass, Monica]

Publication : 1996 In : Les élites municipales de l'Italie péninsulaire des Gracques à Néron : actes de la table ronde de Clermont-Ferrand (28-30 novembre 1991) / sous la direction de Mireille Cébeillac-Gervasoni. Naples-RomeDescription : p. 215-225Langue : Italien. Auteur principal: Verzár-Bass, Monika (1945-....) Résumé : This contribution cannot be dissociated from that of F. Fontana "infra"; both refer to the cults of Cisalpine Italy in the Republican period. Two monuments are at the center of their interst: the cult statue of Piacenza by the Greek sculptor Kleomenes is treated here while in F. Fontana's article the coroplastic remains of a temple of Aquileia are considered: they permit considering the cults of their colony under a new light in the first decades of its existence. For the cult statue of Piacenza it is possible to propose an attribution - Apollo - and a new chronology: no longer the traditional one at the end of the Republic, but a date before the first half of the second century. It is indispensable to connect it to the political and religious life of Piacenza, strongly involved - as all the Po region - by interventions of the urban aristocracy, which was influenced by the iconography of the neo-Attic type widely diffused in the Cisalpine region by the Roman nobility. It could be a simulacrum of Apollo destined for a temple of the city forum..Sujets:politique -- religion romaine -- élite -- temple -- sculpture -- panthéon romain Chrono:Antiquité romaine -- République romaine Lieux:Italie -- Gaule cisalpine Mots libres: élite municipale -- politique religieuse .
