Chapter Summary

This book fulfils four main objectives. First, it seeks to develop an interdisciplinary research agenda aimed at a more detailed and sophisticated understanding of monumental religious and social developments that took place in Roman provinces of Syria during 3rd to 6th centuries CE. Second, it aims at refining research methods that involve the use of both ancient texts and material culture, including archaeological evidence, in reconstruction of social, cultural and religious life. Third, in bringing together scholars from North America, Europe and Syria, as well as from a range of disciplines, these proceedings represent scholarly research collaboration into what has too often been regarded as a marginal and thus understudied region of the late antique world. Finally, this research seeks to raise awareness of the importance of protecting the archaeological remains in Syria, as resources for examining more fully a period and region of intense cultural intersection and exchange.

Keywords: archaeological remains; interdisciplinary research agenda; late antique world; material culture; Roman provinces
