With 50 articles, the present volume constitutes the most important collection of researches devoted to lamps and lighting in the ancient world and beyond. Two innovative researches introduce us to the technical problematics of the ancient fuels and wicks as well as of the real lighting power and diffusion provided by lamps in specific, well-studied archaeological spaces, a transdisciplinary approach made with the most modern techniques. Chronologically prehistory is represented by the very first lamp unearthed in Slovenia and dated to the 5th millennium BC as well as by the very aesthetic boat-shaped lamps of the Sardinian culture of the Nuraghi. Political and religious symbolism of light is analyzed through very complementary examples : on coins, on imperial representations, in the frame of Isis' and Mithra's cults and, later on, in churches and mosques. Material culture analysis is the core of the book, but offering a panorama extended to poorly known areas such as Mesopotamian sites in antiquity or Tajikistani sites during their golden medieval age. Naturally, studies on the Roman lamps of Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia and Albania constitute the hugest group of articles, twinned by neighboring regions like Moesia, Dacia, Dobrogea to the East, Pannonia, Venetia, Cisalpina, Campania and Apulia to the West, but also to more remote areas like Malta or Spain. Analysis on late antique lamps allow to draw very interesting parallels between Egnatia, Aquileia and the Slovenian, Dalmatian and Dacian discoveries. Last but not least, Egypt, the Near East and lamps found or "invented" in Rome at the 17th century are presented through unpublished materials from the museums of San Marino, Zürich and Pesaro.
