Cult Places and Cultural Change in Republican Italy


Cult places had a pivotal function among the various 'Italic' tribes known to us from the ancient sources, which had been gradually conquered and subsequently controlled by Rome. Through an analysis of archaeological, literary and epigraphic evidence from rural cult places in Central and Southern Italy including a case study on the Samnite temple of San Giovanni in Galdo, Tesse Stek investigates the fluctuating function of cult places in among the non-Roman Italic communities, before and after the establishment of Roman rule.
