Product description

With the help of a wide variety of source material, particularly legal documents and inscriptions, some of it made available for the first time in English, this book illustrates the activities associated with the household, demonstrating the different and frequently conflicting roles and moral values expected from its various members: male and female, old and young, freedman and slave.

Review quote

As with slavery, that other fundamental institution of the Roman World, materials on family and household are maddeningly diffuse, fragmented, and therefore rather difficult to find and use. That a good selection of the primary source materials on Roman households has been assembled, and that new translations have been provided for these sources, should be gratefully accepted as a considerable boon to teachers and students and alike.
