The volume comprises a series of original essays by leading scholars in the field, which function as stand-alone studies on topics relating to family life in the Mediterranean world. These essays explore the related, yet complex sets of customs and patterns of behavior that define the family structure and dynamics of various regional and chronological periods in the ancient Mediterranean world."@en ;
   schema:description "Bringing together a diverse team of scholars across areas of study that are often artificially divided in academic study by geographic and chronological demarcations, Mediterranean Families in Antiquity: Households, Extended Families, and Domestic Space seeks to explore the study of the ancient family in the context of a historical continuum and with a comprehensive eye to all regions of the Mediterranean world. As such, Mediterranean Families in Antiquity serves as a critical resource for all ancient historians studying family life in the premodern Mediterranean."@en ;
