44: Csaba Szabó (University of Lucian Blaga, Sibiu)

Csaba joins David to discuss his work on Roman religion in the Danubian provinces, as well as his PhD on religion in Dacia, a Roman province that is roughly akin to modern Transylvania. He chats about modern Romania’s relationship with its Roman past, and how Roman archaeology in Eastern Europe has developed over the last hundred years. Csaba also reflects on his hopes for the future, and that the growing collaborative efforts between scholars across what was once the Roman world can continue to flourish in the face of more isolationist politics. Naturally, there's also lots of Mithras talk.  

You can find Csaba's website on Roman religion here, and a website devoted to his new project on religion in the Danubian provinces here.
