Children and Everyday Life in the Roman and Late Antique World explores what it meant to be a child in the Roman world - what were children’s concerns, interests and beliefs - and whether we can find traces of children’s own cultures. By combining different theoretical approaches and source materials, the contributors explore the environments in which children lived, their experience of everyday life, and what the limits were for their agency. The volume brings together scholars of archaeology and material culture, classicists, ancient historians, theologians, and scholars of early Christianity and Judaism, all of whom have long been involved in the study of the social and cultural history of children. The topics discussed include children's living environments; clothing; childhood care; social relations; leisure and play; health and disability; upbringing and schooling; and children's experiences of death. While the main focus of the volume is on Late Antiquity its coverage begins with the early Roman Empire, and extends to the early ninth century CE. The result is the first book-length scrutiny of the agency and experience of pre-modern children.

Rome In Late Antiquity

Rome in Late Antiquity examines the city's radical transformation from the capital of the classical Roman empire to the center of medieval Christendom. Between the early fourth and early sixth century, Rome faced the ordeals of destruction and the impoverishment of its population, while churches came to dominate where once there had been pagan temples and imperial monuments. Bertrand Lancon's evocative depictions of everyday life for inhabitants, popes, and aristocrats capture the vitality of the city in flux during these three crucial centuries. First published in French, Lancon's nuanced account of this turbulent period in Rome's past combines elegant prose with meticulous scholarship.
