Transdisciplinary Projects

Edition of the Roman Milestones

In the current processes of Europeanisation and globalisation as well as in discourses dealing with these issues, recourses to history are gaining increasing importance. Cultural imprints and traditions, and, as a result, historical constellations ("Lebenswelten"), have become not merely objects of historical research in a narrower sense, but also objects of broader, lively debate - political as well (keyword: clash of civilisations). At the same time, the focus is often on very early stages of of historical development.

Die Reliefs der kaiserzeitlichen Sarkophage stellen eine zentrale Referenzgattung für ikonographische, stilistische und kulturhistorische Fragestellungen innerhalb der Forschung zur römischen Skulptur dar.
