Childhood, Class and Kin in the Roman World


It can be difficult to hear the voices of Roman children, women, and slaves, given that most of the surviving texts of the period are by elite adult men. This volume redresses the balance. An international collection of expert contributors go beyond the usual canon of literary texts and assess a vast range of evidence-inscriptions, burial data, domestic architecture, sculpture, and the law, as well as Christian and dream-interpretation literature. Topics covered include: child exposure and abandonment; children in imperial propaganda, reconstructing lower-class families, gender, burial, and status; epitaphs and funerary monuments; adoption and late parenthood.
