AbstractThis final panel takes a look at some of the cultural and legal borders within the Late Antique religious world between social classes, public, and private and even the living and the dead. The first paper offers a re-consideration of the relationship between master and slave through burials in Late Antique Spain. The second paper, which looks at the caryatid motif on Christian sarcophagi, explores borders between Classical and Late Antique aesthetics.
