Chapter Summary

The conception of spatial types in this chapter, depends primarily on those found in literary sources, set within wider categories suggested by contemporary research. Thus in political space one finds ?praetoria', ?fora' and so on, and in religious space ?churches', ?synagogues' and ?temples'. In the author's view the cultural spatial concepts found in textual sources are the best ways of structuring enquiry into space in Late Antiquity, especially into political, social and religious space. They do not represent a privileged view of a distant literary elite but widely shared cultural concepts reflected in all textual sources, including papyri, graffiti, etc.

Keywords: Late Antiquity; literary sources
