Most widely held works by Jane F Gardner
Being a Roman citizen by Jane F Gardner( )

23 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a book about Roman law for Roman historians. It reveals that the rules stated baldly in legal textbooks had a real and active function in maintaining the fabric of Roman society. As well as references to legal texts and literary sources, it makes use of epigraphic material, including recent finds in Italy and Spain, and of significant finds from Pompeii which show law in action in the commercial life of Puteoli. The rights and duties of Roman citizens in private life were affected by certain basic differences in their formal status. Women, ex-slaves, adults with living fathers, convicted criminals, play-actors - even the blind, deaf and dumb, and the mentally ill - although all were citizens, they were far from having equal legal rights and capacities. Jane F. Gardner examines in detail what the particular legal disabilities were which affected each group and also what the practical implications of these were for the conduct of daily life. She also considers whether and how they may be related to the distinctively Roman institution of patria potestas, and to direct personal participation and interaction, which was a requirement for most transactions with legal consequences for persons and property. In Being a Roman Citizen Jane F. Gardner sheds new light on Roman citizenship and challenges common assumptions about the reasons for discrimination between individuals and about the social attitudes implied
The Roman household : a sourcebook by Jane F Gardner( )

The household was the basic unit of Roman society. This sourcebook offers insight into the different and often conflicting roles and mores of household members -- male and female, old and young, free and slave -- as it illustrates the activities associated with the home and Roman perceptions of its place in society. It is an indispensable resource for the study of Roman domestic and social history, providing an intimate glimpse inside the Roman home

Representing the body of the slave by Jane F Gardner( )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 1,030 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roman myths by Jane F Gardner( Book )

33 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most Roman myths do not consist of stories about the gods and their actions, nor were they presented as fictional, magic stories. Ancient writers treated myths as history of the city, of its rituals and religious practices, and of important, noble Roman families. Myths were valued as illustrations of moral truths and virtuous behavior
Civil war by Julius Caesar( Book )

13 editions published between 1967 and 2007 in English and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A military leader of legendary genius, Caesar was also a great writer, recording the events of his life with incomparable immediacy and power. The Civil War is a tense and gripping depiction of his struggle with Pompey over the leadership of Republican Rome--a conflict that spanned the entire Roman world, from Gaul and Spain to Asia and Africa. Where Caesar's own account leaves off in 48 BC, his lieutenants take up the history, describing the vital battles of Munda, Spain and Thapsus, and the installation of Cleopatra, later Caesar's mistress, as Queen of Egypt. Together these narratives paint a full picture of the events that brought Caesar supreme power--and paved the way for his assassination only months later

Family and familia in Roman law and life by Jane F Gardner( Book )

16 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roman families were infinitely diverse, but the basis of Roman civil law was the familia, a strictly-defined group consisting of a head, paterfamilias, and his descendants in the male line. Recent work on the Roman family mainly ignores the familia, in favor of examining such matters as emotional relationships within families, the practical effects of control by a paterfamilias, and demographic factors producing families which did not fit the familia-pattern. This book investigates the interrelationship between family and familia, especially how families exploited the legal rules for their own ends, and disrupted the familia, by use of emancipation (release from patria potestas) and adoption. It also traces legal responses to the effects of demographic factors, which gave increased importance to maternal connections, and to social effects, such as the difficulties for ex-slaves in conforming to the familia-pattern
