Preservation Practices in Ancient and Medieval Rome
This chapter surveys preservation traditions as they can be reconstructed for ancient and medieval Rome. Augustus forged an Italian culture of preservation by strategically reinforcing conservative patterns in Rome while implementing far-reaching cultural, political, and urban transformations. Building upon this precedent, the medieval civic government of Rome also exploited preservation as a means to resist papal power.
