Monumenta Antiqua  
As of January 1, 2014 a new division was established at the Institute for the Study of Ancient Culture (IKAnt). Similar to the Documenta Antiqua, the newly formed Monumenta Antiqua (head: Andreas Pülz) is organized into five working groups. The division Monumenta Antiqua carries out cultural-historical research projects mainly based on archaeological data. Additionally, documentary sources are considered as well, in general in close cooperation with the Documenta Antiqua. Furthermore, stand-alone projects deal with the following topics: Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum (CVA), Reception of ancient mythology, Testimonia Epigraphica Norica (T.E.Nor.).

Documenta Antiqua  
The division Documenta Antiqua is a research platform for the documentary source disciplines of ancient history in Vienna: epigraphy, numismatics and papyrology. Additionally, it covers the history of ancient law and Latin lexicography. In view of its structure the division is particularly suited for interdisciplinary research, connecting the source disciplines with historical research as well as with archaeology. Head:  Bernhard Woytek Research Groups

Religion and Society  
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.      Head: G. Kremer V. Gassner (ea), P. Ruggendorfer Current areas of specialization: CSIR - Corpus Signorum Imperii Romani The Roman Stone Monuments from Carnuntum; Stone Monuments and Quarrying in the Carnuntum – Vindobona Area  Iuppiter Heliopolitanus The Temple District of luppiter Heliopolitanus in the Canabae of Carnuntum Roman Era Architecture and Sculpture from the Settlement on Titelberg Mountain Funerary Monuments from the Western part of civitas Treverorum  
Mission Statement  
The research conducted by the Institute for the Study of Ancient Culture (IKAnt) covers a wide range with studies reaching from the Archaic to the Byzantine period and including the entire Mediterranean region, the Danube and northwestern provinces of the Roman Empire, Iran, Central Asia as well as the Indo-Iranian borderlands. The focus of research is on the compilation, edition and analysis of archaeological, epigraphic, literary, numismatic and papyrological sources. Of special interest are aspects of cultural, political, social and economic history, as well as questions relating to legal history which are of supra-regional significance. These studies mostly represent an approach which differs from that of the disciplines of Classical Studies at the universities or at institutes focusing on the preservation of monuments or on field archaeology, and complement it. Within the framework of the projects, which are consistently part of intra-, as well as interdisciplinary and international networks, subject-specific methods for the analysis and documentation of finds and findings are also being developed. The results are regularly discussed at international events/symposia and made public through conferences, publications and databases.  The declared aim is the publication of the results, for which, according to the field of research, several series and periodicals are available.  In addition, the consistent integration of young scholars into current research projects provides them with a sound basis for further education and promotion. Finally, the institute is responsible for several international long-term commitments by the Academy with regard to the publication of corpora and lexica.
