Maiores a(n)d Posteriores: imagining “classical antiquity” into the future

  • How did a regard for ancestors shape ancient Mediterranean cultures and societies? What roles did ideas about descendants and the future play in their worldviews?
  • How have participants in the classical tradition, from various positions, conceptualized this antiquity as ancestral, etiological, causal—and to what ends?
  • What have been the consequences of people viewing themselves or others as heirs to “classical antiquity”?
  • What do you foresee “classical antiquity” meaning to people in the future, as we look forward? How might we shape this concept, for our posteriores?
