Aims and Scope

This volume presents a collection of essays on different aspects of Roman sarcophagi. These varied approaches will produce fresh  insights into a subject which is receiving increased interest in  English-language scholarship, with a new awareness of the important contribution that sarcophagi can make to the study of the social use and production of Roman art. The book will therefore be a timely addition to existing literature. Metropolitan sarcophagi are the main focus of the volume, which will cover a wide time range from the first century AD to post classical periods (including early Christian sarcophagi and post-classical reception). Other papers will look at aspects of viewing and representation,  iconography, and marble analysis. There will be an Introduction written by the co-editors.
