Abstract and Keywords

This chapter examines art and architecture in the Roman provinces and beyond the Roman world, with emphasis on historiography and the central methodological issues of past and current scholarship. More specifically, it considers the traditional interpretation of style in the art of the Roman provinces in relation to the “Graeco-Roman” style. The chapter also discusses the concurrent application of the categories of center, province, and periphery to more recent discussions of iconography and social interpretation in addition to location, function, patronage, and viewer response.

Keywords: architecture, art, center, Graeco-Roman style, iconography, location, patronage, periphery, province, Roman provinces
