A Day in the Life of Ancient Rome

12 Apr 2012 00:00:00 GMT

(image) By Alberto Angela

£11.99   12 Apr 2012   Paperback   Europa Editions

The wondrous extravagance of banquets where flamingos are roasted whole and wine flows like rivers. The roar of frenzied spectators inside the Colosseum during a battle between gladiators. A crowd of onlookers gathered at a slave auction. The silent baths and the boisterous taverns ... Many books have dealt with the history of ancient Rome, but none has been able to so engage its readers in the daily life of the Imperial capital.

This extraordinary armchair tour, guided by Alberto Angela with the charm of a born storyteller, lasts twenty-four hours, beginning at dawn on an ordinary day in the year 115 CE, with Imperial Rome at the height of its power. The reader wakes in a rich patrician home and discovers frescoes, opulent furnishings and richly appointed boudoirs. Strolling though the splendors of the Roman Forum, one overhears both erudite opinions from learned orators and local ribaldry floating out from the public latrines. One meets the intense gazes of Roman matriarchs strolling the streets, looks on as a banquet is prepared, and is afforded a peek into the sexual habits and fetishes of Roman patricians and plebs. For all those who have ever dreamed of traveling back in time, Alberto Angela's narrative style will prove thoroughly satisfying. Rich in atmosphere and historical information, A Day in the Life of Ancient Rome is a voyage into a world both distant to us in time and surprisingly near in its habits, mores, and passions.

The Living and the Dead

10 Aug 2010 00:00:00 GMT

(image) The Neapolitan Cult of the Skull

By Margaret Stratton

£26.00   10 Aug 2010   Hardback   Center for American Places,US

Margaret Stratton's photographic projects are an ongoing memento mori for Western culture and all that has resulted from it. In her photographs of the catacombs and derelict churches of Naples, she reveals the interrupted and often incomprehensible rituals preserved under foot or behind closed doors. As the living carry on with their days, the dead and discarded monuments of past civilizationsûthe cherished relics of unknown "ragamuffin souls"ûawait the re-animation of our gaze. Through her journey through the Neapolitan underworld, she creates photographic reliquaries for the yearnings of earlier visitors who hoped to use the dead as a way out of the troubles of the living.-Lesley Wright, Director Faulconer Gallery, Grinnell College

The Living and the Dead: The Neapolitan Cult of the Skull, a photographic record of the vast system of catacombs and aqueducts that snake beneath the streets and crumbling churches of Naples, Italy, illustrates the relationship between religious tradition, ancient architecture, and the cult of the purgative soul in southern Italian culture. Margaret Stratton's photographs document the spaces of early Christian history in which Neapolitans preserve emotional connections to the afterlife, using rituals in which the tangible skull represents the ephemeral soul.

Stratton's photographs show that, unlike the rigid class system that governed medieval Naples, there is a virtually classless society within the catacombs, where noblemen and peasants were laid to rest side by side, their remains indistinguishable from one another. Skulls were placed in seemingly endless rows, stretching far back into the depths of the cavern, each skull identical to those surrounding it.

Unlike typical Early Christian catacombs, the catacombs of Naples were constructed more like underground cathedrals, with passageways so vast they could accommodate horse-drawn chariots, ox-carts, and large biers carrying many corpses. The tufa substrate, composed of half-earth and half-stone, provided a substance perfectly suited for the construction of catacombs, the result of painstaking efforts of penitents and monks, who hollowed out the sites for mourning rituals beneath the city. Among the most remarkable underground cemeteries of Naples arc the Catacombs of San Cennaro, the Catacomb San Caudioso, and it Cimitero delle Fontanelle. For Stratton, the subterranean maze of the catacombs beneath Naples weaves together the skeins of religion, family, history, and sacred space. Her photographs document the customs and rites associated with death and afterlife, a delicate reciprocity between the living and the dead. between belief and superstition, between the histories of Catholicism and pagan ritual.
