The essays in this beautifully illustrated book address the diversity and complexity of attitudes, practices and contexts to explore the plurality of the ancient body. They examine how the different ways in which the altered body could be a means of conveying ideologies and of experiencing the self. A wide time frame within antiquity is discussed, including classical Greece, Augustan Rome, New Kingdom Egypt and the world of late antiquity. Using the interdisciplinary perspectives in archaeology, classical literature and patristics, "Changing Bodies, Changing Meanings" is the first book to place at its center the emotional and experiential aspect of the body in antiquity.
