Compare and contrast two examples of Roman art / architecture from different centuries (1st century CE through 4th century CE). What do the examples you select tell us about the values and beliefs of Roman society at the times in question? How do the works in question communicate a sense of Romanitas (i.e., a term used by modern historians as shorthand for “Roman-ness” or Roman identity and self-image)? To the best of your ability, your essay should address issues of material, style, design, and meaning / function for both examples.
