Roman Women

March 3
7:00 pm

First Congregational Church of Manchester
Statue of Roman woman

Some might expect that the lives of women in the Roman world revolved entirely around the family and domesticity. But Roman women owned property, ran businesses, and represented themselves in court. Middlebury classics professor Jane Chaplin discusses the place of women in the Roman world, the sources about them, and the values attached to them.

Jane Chaplin is the James I. Armstrong Professor of Classics at Middlebury College.

Partner: Middlebury College and the Mellon Foundation
