CALL: 

 

Death played a key role in the ancient societies since it demanded new ways to express the power and identity. Dead lived side  by  side  with  the  living,  either  in  the  vicinity  of  the  city  or  within  its  limits,  so  also  in  the  tomb  the  social  role  of  the deceased  was  to  be  defined,  especially  by  aristocracy. 

 

That  was  the  starting  point  for  the  many  forms  by  which  social relations  were  expressed in necropoleis  of  the  ancient  world:  grave  goods,  verse  or  philosophical  inscriptions  in  tombs, istinctive monuments,  cult  of  the  ancestors...  On  the  occasion  of  the  forthcoming  edited  volume  by  M.  Erasmo (2019), A Cultural History of Death: Antiquity, this panel aims to discuss (1) how the social principles were represented, perpetuated and  endorsed  in  the  ancient  funerary  world,  and  (2)  how  the  deceased was socially  and  religiously  constructed,  from  his burial, through his recollection, rites in his honour and/or funerary monuments.
