The present volume includes essays originally given as papers at two conferences. The first Passages from Antiquity to the Middle Ages was held in Tampere January 2003. The second conference, subtitled Aging, Old Age, and Death, was held in Tampere August 2005. This collection starts with the essays by Beryl Rawson and Didier Lett, which reflect the present state and the future challenges of the study of childhood. The latter part of this volume, starting from the Eva Cantarella's contribution on marriage, consists of thematic studies. They all show an interest in individuals and families in different stages of life seeking to secure continuity, that is, continuity of the family, its material fortune, name, memory, and the continuity of its individual members in the afterlife. Printed Pages: 252.
