The Department of Classics at Stanford University invites you to attend a public dissertation defense by
Dan-el Padilla Peralta
On his dissertation entitled:
"Divine institutions: religious practice, economic development, and social transformation in mid-Republican Rome”
In the course of two and a half centuries, the city-state of Rome rose from central Italian preeminence to Mediterranean hegemony. This transformation in the scale and extent of Roman power was accompanied by a revolution in social, economic and cultural practices. Dan-el's dissertation argues that Rome's imperial project and the social revolution it triggered are directly linked to developments in Roman religious practice during this period. Through the application of social-scientific models to literary and archaeological data, he seeks to demonstrate how religion in mid-Republican Rome and Roman Italy drove meaningful and highly consequential institutional transformation.
