Numa Numa: The Life and Afterlife of the Second King of Rome

Friday, October 13, 2017
8:30 AM-5:10 PM
2175 Angell Hall Map
This interdisciplinary conference focuses on the second king of Rome, Numa Pompilius – the foundational figure of Roman religion who also enjoyed a long and rich nachleben in Western thought, literature, and art. For centuries, Numa has personified the good monarch and emblemized how religion should (or, in some cases, should not) function in society. An international group of speakers will consider Numa from every angle, beginning with archaeological evidence through to his presentation in ancient literature, to his role in Renaissance thought and early modern literature. The event is free and open to the public.
