Learning outcomes

First part (basic course):
The course is aimed at improving the students’ knowledge of the urban culture of the Romans during the Imperial Age, the fundamental principles which the Roman society was based on, the dialectics between Romans and non-Romans, and the grant of Roman citizenship to the inhabitants of the Empire. The analysis will focus on the documents concerning the different rights of cities in Italy and in the provinces.
The critical analysis of the documentary sources (either archaeological or literary or epigraphical) will be introduced to students. This analysis is meant to allow students to distinguish and understand the peculiar features of the different kinds of documentation and subsequently, to put them in comparison one to another; it is also meant to single out and describe the principles which the Roman social life was based on, the Roman capability of integrating the foreigners into their society and politics, and the importance of Roman political engagements (such as in the case of the Constitutio Antoniniana) which modified deeply the basis of the social life. Onother aim is that of making understand the reasons why the bases of the social life in the Roman world had been discarded in the 3rd century.
Students will be able to evaluate autonomously some testimonies to Roman history by means of comparisons between different authors or between authors and different kinds of documentation, in order to evaluate the reliability of each document.
Students are expected to improve their communication skill by expressing their opinions or even their doubts concerning the dealt topics and by receiving answers and directions about how to organize their speech.
Also the understanding skill should be improved by means of a critical reading of historical texts and the study of images of monuments and other iconographies.
At the end of the teaching activities a student should be able to show that he has understood the most important problems discussed in the classes, that he is able to analyse in a critical manner both the sources and the iconographies taken into account. A student should explain this following a logical series of points, clearly and on the basis of the fundamental documents.

Second part (advanced course)
The course is aimed at improving the students’ knowledge of the relationship between religion and politics during the Imperial Age, and of the fundamental principles which the Roman society and the Roman religion were based on. Texts and documents concerning persecutions, spread, and triumph of Christianity will be taken into account. The critical analysis of the documentary sources (either archaeological or literary or epigraphical) will be introduced to students. This analysis is meant to allow students to distinguish and understand the peculiar features of the different kinds of documentation and subsequently, to put them in comparison one to another; it is also meant to single out and describe the principles which the Roman social life was based on, the Roman capability of integrating the foreigners into their society and politics, and the Roman attitude of repressing or, at the contrary, promoting cultural features of foreign peoples during the 2nd, 3rd and 4th centuries.
Students will be able to evaluate autonomously some testimonies to Roman history by means of comparisons between different authors or between authors and different kinds of documentation, in order to evaluate the reliability of each document.
Students are expected to improve their communication skill by expressing their opinions or even their doubts concerning the dealt topics and by receiving answers and directions about how to organize their speech.
Also the understanding skill should be improved by means of a critical reading of historical texts and the study of images of monuments and other iconographies.
