Summary
"In Bathing in the Roman World, Fikret Yegul examines the social and cultural aspects of one of the key Roman institutions. Guiding the reader through the customs, rituals, and activities associated with public bathing, Yegul traces the origins and development of baths and bathing customs and analyzes the sophisticated technology and architecture of bath complexes, which were among the most imposing of all Roman building types. He also examines the reception of bathing throughout the classical world and the transformation of bathing culture across three continents in Byzantine and Christian societies." "Richly illustrated and written in an accessible manner, this book is geared to undergraduate and graduate students for use in courses on Roman architecture, archaeology, civilization, and social and cultural history."--BOOK JACKET
