Product Overview

THE WEDDING RITUAL OF THE ANCIENT ROMANS PROVIDES A crucial key to understanding their remarkable civilization. The intriguing ceremony represented the starting point of a Roman family, as well as a Roman girl's transition to womanhood. This work is the first book-length examination of Roman wedding ritual. Drawing on literary, legal, historical, antiquarian, and artistic evidence of Roman nuptials from the end of the Republic through the early Empire (ca. 200 bce to 200 ce), Karen K. Hersch shows how the Roman wedding expressed the ideals and norms of an ancient people. Her book is an invaluable tool for social historians interested in how ideas of gender, law, religion, and tradition are interwomen into the wedding ceremony of every culture.
