Free at Last! The Impact of Freed Slaves on the Roman Empire


Abstract


Free at Last! is the product of the editorial efforts of Sinclair Bell and Teresa Ramsby, which brings together the contributions of eight scholars (including one of the editors) on a number of aspects of the study of freed slaves at Rome. The passion for freedom', Bell and Ramsby contend in their Introduction (p. 1), 'the desire to overcome the stigma of servitude, and the urge to make a life that outshines that former servitude is visible in most well- documented slaves societies': the volume thus seeks to give 'a voice to the voiceless' in the Roman world, in order to recognize 'their contributions to Roman life and culture'.
