CLA 315: Ancient Religion
April 04, 2021
Join us in a study of the religious beliefs and practices of the ancient Mediterranean. We’ll explore the religious traditions of Egypt, Greece, and Rome, through the lens of both texts and material culture. Topics include views of the afterlife, temples and sanctuaries, re-ligion in domestic contexts, “mystery” religions, and the rise of Christianity.We will also consider ways religious practices were used to express social identity, using new material from Professor Morison’s current archaeological field research.
