The work group’s focus lies on the collection and comprehensive analysis of archaeological sources linked to ancient religion and society. Evidence of cult activities, funerary architecture and other find groups are surveyed through the lens of their historical and socio-cultural context. A crucial part of the investigations is dedicated to the categories of architectural and sculptural finds, which are evaluated in their archaeological and overall historical context and published in the framework of Corpus Signorum Imperii Romani. The workgroup is currently analyzing finds and findings from various regions of the Roman Empire in a cultural-historical context.
