Chapter Summary

The evidence of domestic artefacts bearing religiously inspired imagery from Sagalassos (south-west Turkey) is used here to trace how the religious revolution of Late Antiquity affected daily life and how that evidence may reflect wider patterns in the shift from a pagan to a Christian culture in Late Antiquity. After a period characterised by a common iconographic repertoire shared by pagans and Christians alike, in which the Christian impact on material culture was limited, the material expression of the changing religious atmosphere became more visible from the second half of the 4th c. onwards and eventually resulted in a canonic Christian iconography. This chapter aims to shed some light on that transformation by examining the evidence of domestic artefacts bearing religiously inspired imagery from Sagalassos, and how that evidence may reflect wider patterns in the shift from a pagan to a Christian culture in Late Antiquity.
