The paper aims to bring together the diverse – and at some point even disparate – research on Mater Magna veneration. The very heterogeneous kinds of data, stemming from archaeology, ancient history, philology and religious history, are connected by an analytical grid, the so-called Religious Ancient Placemaking (RAP) approach. The grid allows us to analyse the interdisciplinary data equally through the creation of an ontology for a knowledge network, leading to new results and sociological insights, such as immaterial alignment or heterarchical stigma management, which contribute to a further completion of the study.
