From Pagan To Christian: An Archaeological Study Of The Transformation Of Corinth In Late Antiquity, Eli J. Weaverdyck May 2007

From Pagan To Christian: An Archaeological Study Of The Transformation Of Corinth In Late Antiquity, Eli J. Weaverdyck

Classics Honors Projects

This thesis examines the process by which Christianity became the dominant religion of Corinth as evidenced in the archaeological record. I compare the evidence in Corinth to historical evidence for the Eastern Roman Empire, including imperial legislation and evidence for Christianization in five other eastern cities. I conclude that, in order for Christianity to supplant paganism as the dominant religion in ancient society, it had to accept many of the institutions and traditions of paganism. My investigation of the archaeological evidence in Corinth, specifically the monumental architecture, the sculpture, and the cemeteries, reveals the same phenomenon in Corinth.

Centum Homines: The Prototype Of The Alexander Mosaic And The Military Museum In The Hellenistic World, Peter Nulton Feb 2007

Centum Homines: The Prototype Of The Alexander Mosaic And The Military Museum In The Hellenistic World, Peter Nulton

Peter E. Nulton Ph.D.

Although it is generally accepted that the Alexander Mosaic copies a painting of the 4th Century BCE, the attribution of this prototype has never been settled. Numerous attempts have been made to associate it with painters recorded in Pliny's Natural History, notably Philoxenos of Eretria, and Alexander's court painter, Apelles.

If the painting were the work of any artist whose name survives, as strong a case can be made for Aristeides of Thebes as for Apelles or Philoxenos. Since Pliny's comment that Aristeides painted a battle against the Persians follows his treatment of the works of Apelles ...

The Unsettling Landscape: Landscape And Anxiety In The Garden Of The House Of Octavius Quartio, Sarah Brutesco Jan 2007

The Unsettling Landscape: Landscape And Anxiety In The Garden Of The House Of Octavius Quartio, Sarah Brutesco

Inquiry: The University of Arkansas Undergraduate Research Journal

Ancient Roman houses (domus) were both public and private spaces and were used by the homeowner (dominus) to send messages of power to his guests and family members. Scholarly analysis of the rhetorical power of the architecture and decoration of the domus has largely overlooked the role of the garden within this context. It is generally assumed that the purpose of the garden was to provide a calm green space in the center of an urban home. The purpose of this paper is to challenge this overly simplistic reading of Roman gardens and to explore how the dominus might have ...
