Romans and Christians

Details

Images, both artistic and architectural, were an integral part of the ways in which Romans and Christians spread their message across the empire. Initially, this `visual history' discusses how Rome's power was projected through the construction of magnificent palaces and public buildings, such as the Colosseum, and considers the affect of persecution on Christian iconography. The second part of the study focuses on artworks, tombs, churches and buildings in Britain and Gaul during the latter years of the Roman period. James examines the reasons behind the popularity of Christianity in these provinces and considers the continuity of images during the transition to the Middle Ages.
