Abstract

This thesis examines the epigraphic and literary evidence for ideals of
parent-child relationships in Rome and Roman Italy, with a special focus on
the relationship between mothers and young children, and mothers and older
daughters. It considers all funerary inscriptions from Rome and Italy
dedicated by parents to children — not a sample - that record the dedicand,
their relationship to the honorand, and at least one epithet, in order to
determine what ideals are most commonly expressed of the parent-child
relationship, and of the mother-child relationship in particular. In order to
place the inscriptional ideals expressed of the mother-child relationship into
a broader context, two literary works from the first century A.D. — Seneca's
Troades and Statius' Thebaid — are examined in-depth in terms of how their
treatment of the mother-child bond reflects the ideals of the mother-child
relationships recorded in the epitaphs.
