Abstract:

The Iguvine Tables (Tabulae Iguvinae) are among the most invaluabledocuments of Italic linguistics and religion. Seven bronze tabletsdiscovered in 1444 in the Umbrian town of Gubbio (ancient Iguvium), theyrecord the rites and sacral laws of a priestly brotherhood, the FratresAtiedii, with a degree of detail unparalleled elsewhere in ancient Italy.Taking an interdisciplinary approach that combines philological andlinguistic, as well as ritual analysis, Michael Weiss not only addressesthe many interpretive cruces that have puzzled scholars for a century and ahalf, but also constructs a coherent theory of the entire ritualperformance described on Tables III and IV. In addition, Weiss sheds lighton many questions of Roman ritual practice and places the Iguvine Tables intheir broader Italic and Indo-European contexts.
