The Festivals of the Forum Boarium Area

Show Summary Details


With the help of rituals, rules, places and calendars, an attempt is made to put together all the festivals and ceremonies that were celebrated in the Forum Boarium area in Rome. What emerges is a lively picture, relatively well documented, of Roman religious life. It is also possible to reconstruct that the cults of this space implied some sort of representation about male and female identity.

Keywords: calendars; ceremonies; forum boarium; male and female identity; places

Chapter.  5635 words.  Illustrated.
