Together these chapters offer a bold new account of the Roman Empire, juxtaposing key topics that are not always considered together under the rubric of “culture.” A Cultural History of Western Empires in Antiquity examines the cultural history of ancient Mediterranean empires, and focuses on the Roman Empire; the prototypical empire in western history and imagination. A wide-ranging introduction examines the nexus of state-formation and culture in the ancient Mediterranean world, from the rise of civilization in Mesopotamia to the fall of the Roman Empire in late antiquity. Richly-illustrated with images of monuments, statues, sculptures, mosaics, paintings, coins, and other colorful artefacts of ancient material culture, this volume reveals how the deep structures of imperial power and authority shaped everything from the labour and movements of the Roman Empire's mostly anonymous subjects to their sexualities and consciousness..Note de contenu: Introduction, Carlos F.
