Abstract (Swedish)
This paper highlights and discusses the concept of the jubilee in Antiquity through a series of case studies.

With one noticeable exception, the Augustan secular games, the sources rarely give us a complete and detailed picture of the celebrations. Still a number of common characteristic traits can be outlined: utopian ideas, unification,... (More)
