Abstract [en]

This paper will review how civic identity, ethnicity and religious identity were debated and revalued during the Hadrianic era.  The Panhellenic identity promoted by Hadrian was linked to a Hellenic identity and Greek history but also to the mythic history of Rome. Emperor Hadrian promoted the development of multifaceted identities, being himself a representative of virtus and Romanitas, and a promoter of Greek paideia. The multiple identities of Hadrian, Empress Sabina and the emperor’s beloved Antinoos, and their contemporaries reflect this development in culture, society and religion: identity, gender, and memory got multifaceted interpretations, became fluid and flexible. This development continued in Late Antiquity, when memories of the Greek and Roman past were revived and reused in new contexts.
