Professor Bendlin’s research and publications focus on ancient religion. He has a particular interest in the pragmatics of religious life in the Roman Mediterranean. He also works and publishes on Roman social history, with a particular emphasis on the life of associations in the Graeco-Roman world; and on Roman literary and cultural history. Current research includes a large-scale project on demography, migration, and urbanism, and their impact on religious pluralism in the city of Rome.
