9780521030113: Rome the Cosmopolis

Ancient Rome was a vast and multifarious metropolis, by coercion and seduction drawing to itself a population from every province of its empire, as well as foodstuffs, building materials and entertainments from the whole world. This collection of essays explores key aspects of the relationship between Rome and its empire.

Review:

'Nine historians offer lively, original and consistently interesting papers … Rome the Cosmopolis gives us much that is new and memorable.' The Times Literary Supplement

'… a rich and rewarding collection, which amply demonstrates that the recognition of the cosmopolitan nature of the city of Rome opens up the possibility of new literary, archaeological, historical, and artistic narratives of the city.' Journal of Roman Studies

From the Publisher:

Rome stands today for an empire and for a city. The essays gathered in this volume explore some of the many ways in which the two were interwoven. Rome was fed, beautified and enriched by empire just as it was swollen, polluted, infected and occupied by it. Empire was paraded in the streets of Rome, and exhibited in the city's buildings. Empire also made the city ineradicably foreign, polyglot, an alien capital, and a focus for un-Roman activities. The city was where the Roman cosmos was most concentrated, and so was most contested. Deploying a range of methodologies on materials ranging from Egyptian obelisks to human skeletal remains, via Christian art and Latin poetry, the contributors to this volume weave a series of pathways through the world-city, exploring the different kinds of centrality Rome had in the empire. The result is a startlingly original picture of both empire and city.
