Kaiserkult in den Provinzen des Römischen Reiches
The Imperial Cult in the Roman Provinces: Organization, Communication and Representation

Organisation, Kommunikation und Repräsentation

Edited by: Anne Kolb and Marco Vitale
The cultic worship of the Roman Emperor and his family by the province's population was not only a religious but as well a political matter. It further involves relevant aspects in the field of media, social and economic history. With new epigraphic and numismatic sources, the papers in this volume illuminate the imperial cult in the provinces and even outside the empire from its origins to Late Antiquity.
