The Afterlife of Roman Statues in Baths and Homes of Late Antiquity

Sponsored by Classcial Association of Canada & Department of Classics and Ancient History

AIA Society Event: New Brunswick, NB

Monday, September 23, 2013 - 5:00pm - 6:00pm

Location:
University of New Brunswick
Fredericton, NB E3B 5A3
Canada

Dr. Lea Stirling, from the Department of Classics at the University of Manitoba, will focus on the fate of statues that adorned the public bath houses and the dwellings of the elite from the Roman imperial period to the 4th and 5th centuries. Her research suggests that the types of statuary chosen for public spaces differed from those that adorned private edifices, while changes in social beliefs and customs prompted an occasional editing of the sculptural decor, especially in the public bath houses. In several baths from the eastern part of the empire for example, nude statuary remained on display but was castrated.
