Background and Research Interests

As a broadly trained ancient historian, Gwynaeth’s research focuses on political, social, and religious history of the ancient world and the ways in which mythology and religion define particular communities or groups of communities. Her recent and on-going research focuses specifically on the ways in which mythology and religion were used by members of the Roman imperial family to justify and legitimize their power as represented in archaeological, epigraphic, numismatic, and literary sources. She has most recently published a book on the worship of the Roman imperial family and is currently co-editing a volume on the Roman mythological figure, Anna Perenna.
