New Perspectives on the Temple of Jupiter in Rome
The temple of Jupiter was one of the most significant and celebrated buildings in ancient Rome.  Located high atop the Capitoline hill, in the very heart of the city, the temple was dedicated to Rome’s most powerful god and served as the focal point of important religious ceremonies such as the triumph, the famous ritual procession held in celebration of Rome’s greatest military victories.  Indeed, through its physical prominence and its central religious role, the temple became in antiquity a symbol of the city of Rome and its enduring power.  In this presentation, I will use digital reconstructions and analyses to evaluate theories about the size of the temple and also about the route of the triumphal procession, both topics that have been much debated by modern scholars.
