CLST 108. Capstone: Greek and Roman Religion: Text, Theory and Archaeology


This seminar focuses upon religion in the ancient Mediterranean world. Through a comprehensive approach that combines reading ancient texts, the discussion of modern theories of religion, and a thorough investigation of archaeological sites and monuments, we will reconstruct the cult practices, ideologies, and belief systems of the ancient Greeks and Romans. Particular emphasis will be placed upon how such systems changed over time. This course will also introduce students to Greek and Latin epigraphy, or the study of ancient texts inscribed in stone, bronze, and clay.
