The result of the grant will be a monograph discussing the activities of the college septemviri epulones in Roman public religion, which will work on three levels. Firstly from the perspective of the role of sacrifices in the social dimension of Roman religion. Secondly through the analysis of the activities of the epulones I draw attention to their direct connection with Jupiter, most clearly expressed by the organisation of games. Thirdly, I would like to present a history of the college and its evolution over the period of over 500 years of its existence.
The second publication resulting from the grant will be an album sacerdotum. The production of a collection like this is significant in order to define the role of the college within the social life of Ancient Rome, and could serve as a reference book for other researchers of the Imperium Romanum.
The third publication is a ritual dictionary, including collocations. Up until now there has not been a complete collection like this in the literature.
