Nearly every modern visitor to the city of Rome spends time exploring the ruins of the Forum Romanum. Nestled between the Capitoline and Palatine hills, the Forum functioned as the central urban space of ancient Rome. Many of the city's most important monuments were in the Forum, including basilicas, the senate house, speaking platforms, numerous religious structures, statues, and arches. Not only was the Forum the site of many key events in the history and mythology of Rome; it was also the focus of many civic, sacred, and social rituals of the ancient city. This seminar will explore the Forum and the rituals and events that took place there from the Regal Period to the final days of the Empire. Using the archaeological and historical record, the monuments of the Forum will be examined from the perspective of topographical evolution, patronage, use, and reception. A primary objective will be the understanding of how the Forum changed both physically and functionally during its 1000-year history. We will also explore the other Fora of the city, including the Forum Boarium, Forum Holitorium, and the Imperial Fora. In addition, the course will investigate how the concept of a forum translated into several other Roman cities, both Italian and provincial. Readings will cover ancient texts in translation, archaeology, architecture, art, and numismatics.
