The spiritual world and deities of gladiators in Roman amphitheatres in the territory of present-day Croatia

By Marin Buovac

Abstract

U ovom se radu, na temelju sačuvanih materijalnih nalaza i povijesnih izvora, nastoji rekonstruirati prisutnost takozvanih gladijatorskih božanstava na području istočnojadranske obale i panonskog prostora. Također se uzimaju u razmatranje pojedina božanstva i protagonisti iz grčko-rimske mitologije, koji uz svoje uobičajene atribucije razvijaju pojedine zaštitničke sklonosti i pritom zauzimaju specifičan odnos prema gladijatorskom svijetu. Interdisciplinarnim pristupom autor svoje zaključke potkrepljuje povijesnim izvorima, natpisnom građom, arheološkim ostacima, onomastičkim istraživanjima, arhivskim i drugim vrstama podataka.Based on physical finds and historical sources, this work constitutes an attempt to reconstruct the presence of so-called gladiatorial deities in the Eastern Adriatic seaboard and Pannonia. Also considered are certain deities and protagonists from Graeco-Roman mythology who, besides their customary attributes, acquired individual protective qualities and thus assumed a specific relationship to the gladiatorial world. Using an interdisciplinary approach, the author backs his conclusions with historical sources, epigraphic materials, archaeological artefacts, onomastic research, archival and other types of data
