Rianne Hermans studies the role of the Latin past in the Roman present, by investigating three large sanctuaries in the Alban hills, the heartland of ‘old Latium’ to the south east of Rome. She investigates how later Romans engaged with the Latin past that surrounded them. The narratives surrounding the cults of Diana Nemorensis, Juno Sospita and Jupiter Latiaris play an important role in this.
