Ancient Italy and beginnings of Rome, early, middle and late Republic, early and high Empire, Roman society in the empire period (structure of Roman society, especially the relationship of the state towards Jews and Christians as special religious groups). The centre of the course is the period of the Roman empire from under Augustus to the year 476, when the last western Roman emperor was removed from the thron. As a historical overview lectures are linked with topical kindred sciences, especially Archaeology (mostly provincial) and history of Roman literature, although there are many connections also with the Roman law, history of religions, especially early ecclesiastical history, social history and historical anthropology.
