Summary
    An Anthology on the Roman World: Republic to Empire provides students with a collection of carefully selected, multidisciplinary readings that illuminate the unique history of the Romans.

    The anthology is organized into four chapters. Chapter 1 focuses on society and government. The readings encourage students to consider how the shape of a city influences its society, the significance of Roman baths, features of Roman government that have permeated the West, and more. Chapter 2 focuses on Roman women, with articles about Livia, the wife of Augustus; graffiti from Pompeii created by women; and the place of the woman in the Roman family structure.

    In Chapter 3, students examine the structure and roles within Roman families. The readings cover symbols of gender and status in the Roman household, marriage and sexuality, and the role of healthcare providers in the Roman household, including woman doctors and midwives. The final section discusses early Roman religion and the introduction and growth of Christianity in the first couple of centuries after its founding.

    An Anthology on the Roman World is an ideal supplementary resource for courses in world history, especially those with concentration on Roman history.
