Children and childhood in Roman Italy by Beryl Rawson( )

26 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 1,779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Children and Childhood in Roman Italy argues that in Roman society children were, in principle and often in practice, welcome, valued, and visible. There is no evidence directly from children themselves, but we can reconstruct attitudes to them, and their own experiences, from a wide variety of material - art and architecture, artefacts, funerary dedications, Roman law, literature, and public and private ritual. There are distinctively Roman aspects to the treatment of children and to children's experiences. Education at many levels was important. The commemoration of children who died young has no parallel, in earlier or later societies, before the twentieth century."--Jacket

Marriage, divorce, and children in ancient Rome by Beryl Rawson( Book )

44 editions published between 1985 and 2004 in English and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The family has played a central role in most societies, and the complexity and variety of that role demonstrates there is no single definition or pattern of "the family" in any society. Recent studies of ancient Rome have shown that the sentimental ideal of a core nuclear family was strongthroughout the period, but that reality often diverged from the ideal. This study examines many aspects of the composition and inner workings of the Roman family, and provides an illuminating case study of the sentimental ideal versus everyday reality. In addition, Rawson considers the effect ofdivorce, high mortality rates, status, and fostering on the family in ancient Rome
A companion to families in the Greek and Roman worlds by Beryl Rawson( )

28 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 664 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent decades have witnessed a dramatic surge of interest in the study of families in the ancient Mediterranean world. Social history has only recently extended its scope to include women, children, slaves, and foreigners, giving birth to a new definition of "the family" that recognizes the great diversity of family forms in classical antiquity. A Companion to Families in the Greek and Roman Worlds draws from both established and current scholarship to offer a broad and interdisciplinary overview of the field, engage in contemporary debates, and pose stimulating questions about future development in the study of families
