The family continues to be seen as a central institution in Roman as well as modern, Western society. This volume draws on a wide range of disciplines to develop the intertwined themes of status, sentiment, and space. The book makes use of many types of evidence--from the legal and literary to the iconographical and archaeological, and draws on visual and material evidence in reconstructing real lives in considerable color and variety.
