For centuries inhabitants of Rome buried or cremated their dead outside the city limits. The pomerium was the sacred boundary separating the living from the dead. From the fifth century AD burials began to creep inside the city, contravening Roman law and established practice. This talk examines why and how this change altered the fabric of the Eternal City.
