The Age of Marriage in Ancient Rome

Overview

Lelis (history, U. of Minnesota), William A. Percy (U. of Massachusetts-Boston), and Beert C. Verstraete (classics, Acadia U., Nova Scotia) joined the project at various stages and often for specific tasks over the past years, as what began as an article outgrew any journal.

Overview

Lelis (history, U. of Minnesota), William A. Percy (U. of Massachusetts-Boston), and Beert C. Verstraete (classics, Acadia U., Nova Scotia) joined the project at various stages and often for specific tasks over the past years, as what began as an article outgrew any journal. In order to make the study accessible to readers outside Roman social history—or even classics itself—they include a number of chapters on social- historical developments relevant to their center of attention: the age at which men and women of the Roman world first married. The question has become more interesting over the past few decades, they say, as people in the industrialized world marry later, female fertility diminishes and populations stagnate or even decline.
