Les sordes dans la vie politique romaine : la saleté comme tenue de travail ?

Abstract : This paper will focus on analysing the reasons why Romans wear a specific outfit in certain political and judicial contexts, which at first glance is obviously in contradiction with the common expectations of citizen life: the “dirty” dress. Considering a Roman anthropology of dirtiness, we will see how this specific dress, which bears a technical and functional thing in itself, unveils a shared conception gathering every citizen whose place inside the city is temporarily put into question.
