Reutilizaciones de material romano en edificios de culto cristiano


  • L. Caballero Zoreda
  • J. C. Sánchez Santos


In this study an analysis is made of the vestiges which the aculturation brought about by the Christianization of the paganism left behind in certain material structures, particulary in the construction of the churches, the altar bases and in the paraliturgical elements such as screenplates' thresholds, the holy water basins, the offering boxes, the pedestals of the arches and supports. The re-used elements are materials of construction and inscriptions, especially the aras, steias and boundary marks and milestones. Various types of questions are taken into consideration: the correlation between the written sources and the archaeological information; the possible types of relationships between their pagan and Christian uses and of their conversion; and the chronology (particularly between the fifth and tenth centuries) and the geographical distribution of these elements and of the types of re-utilization. A catalogue of materials is included.
