Abstract

In recent decades there has been a resurgence of interest in early medieval Rome, driven in part by new archaeology and the opening of the Crypta Balbi museum, and also by the revived interest in texts such as the Liber Pontificalis, and in part by projects such as ‘La Pittura Medievale a Roma’. New research on Greek-speaking monastic communities and the influx of migrants into Rome after the turn of the 7th century has nuanced our picture of the city’s culture. This group of three sessions will bring together an interdisciplinary group of international scholars to present their most recent research on the city, including a number engaged specifically with ‘material culture’.
