This session will seek to answer the following questions: what was the legal status of the wives and children of clerics, both from the ecclesiastical and civil point of view? What was the position of the servants and slaves in the households of clerics? How did the relations with their familiars and neighbours influence the opinions and preaching of the clerics? What do archaeology and epigraphy tell us about the living conditions of the clergy in the first millennium?
