Dis Manibus: (Im)mortality and the Afterlife in the Ancient World. 20th Annual Graduate Student Colloquium - 16/04/2016, Charlottesville (USA)

28.12.2015

 

 

Ancient Greeks and Romans, like everyone else, died. But they also found countless fascinating ways to keep the dead alive. From Roman imagines to Greek ancestor worship, the deceased remained an essential part of family and community life.

But what kind of reality awaited the individual after death? From Odysseus's and Aeneas’s visits to the underworld to Plato’s Myth of Er, the question of the nature of “what comes next” exercised the Greek and Roman imagination throughout antiquity.
