INELVCTABILE FATVM. Mourir en Gaule Mosellane : (Ier s. av. J.-C. - IVe s. ap. J.-C.)

Abstract : This thesis deals with the funerary data (archeological digs, funerary monuments) that were collected in the territory of the three cities of the Moselle valley, i.e. the city of the Leuci, that of the Mediomatrici and that of the Treveri. The first chapter is mostly concerned with the relevant historiography as well as the latest orientations of research on death in antiquity : it includes in particular a critical review of the main approaches that have been used to interpret funerary data. It also examines the main problem posed by such data, especially when it comes to matters of dating. The next three chapters look at things from a diachronic point of view : they deal with the evolution of burial places in the Moselle region, from the eve of Caesar's conquest of Gaul to Claudius's reign (chapter 2), from the middle of the 1st century to the middle of the 3rd century (chapter 3), and during the latter period of antiquity. The next two chapters are case-studies and concentrate on the problem of «romanisation » : the main point is to try and determine just how valid the concept is. Chapter 5 focuses on the metropoles of the communities that used to live in the foothills of the Vosges, while chapter 6 is concerned with the funeral treatment of children who died in infancy. The last chapter is about the numerous ancient monumenta bearing inscriptions or sculptures that were excavated in the Moselle region.
