Details

How did the Romans confront mortality in a world where only eight per cent of the population lived past 60 and medicine offered little defence against disease? This surprisingly entertaining discussion of the subject uses the philosophical reflections of elite authors and the evidence from ordinary Romans’ epitaphs to explore their attitudes to youth and ageing, and their beliefs about fate, death and the afterlife.
