Colloquium on Material Culture and Ancient Religion. Religion and Empire: Agency and Intersecting Id


The Colloquia on Material Culture and Religion are occasional traveling programs for scholars of Christian origins and related disciplines. The goal of the colloquia is to help participants engage archaeology and material culture in their research and teaching.

The 2018 colloquium will explore the theme, “Religion and Empire: Agency and Intersecting Identities,” and will focus on Rome and the surrounding areas. Our site visits and discussions will focus on the topography, architecture, institutions, and objects found at the intersections of political, economic, and religious interests.
