CLCV 431 - The Archaeology of Ritual


Fall (3) Paga, Spaeth, Swetman-Burland

This course investigates the links between rituals and the archaeological record in Greek and/or Roman society. Topics include the performance of ritual, the spaces of religious action within cities and within broader landscapes, and the roles of practitioners and audiences.  Material discussed may include architectural remains (e.g, tombs, temples), portable objects (e.g, altars, sacrificial implements), and representations of rituals in visual media or ancient texts. The course emphasizes secondary literature offering methodological paradigms for understanding ritual action.
