OVERVIEW

Among the sources that enable us to understand the history and evolution of the Greek and Roman civilisations, in their specificity and intersections, are inscriptions - written testimonies on durable materials (stone, metal, ceramics, etc.) that have come directly from antiquity. Inscriptions occupy a central position in this study, precisely because of their nature as original documents and their great variety of forms, contents and functions. Epigraphy is the discipline that studies inscriptions as writing with a specific focus on the contexts and devices of their use. Although Greek and Latin epigraphy are similar in several respects, they differ in more than one, starting with language, and as such will be explored in depth in the individual modules of the course which are coordinated and complementary, as illustrated in their respective presentations (Greek Epigraphy and Latin Epigraphy).
