The Boston University Classics Department is proud to announce a research symposium...
Woman Inspired: Founders of Greek Civilization and the Christian lens of Classics
The Myth and Religion Study Group presents “A Woman Inspired: Founders of Greek Civilization and the Christian lens of Classics,” a talk by David Hillman with Carl Ruck.
Does our post-Classical cultural perspective so distort our analysis of ancient evidence that Classical scholars misunderstand and misrepresent basic elements of Greek society? Dr. Hillman will consider such distortions in concepts like “homosexuality,” “sin,” “religion,” and even “virginity.”
The lecture will be held on November 8, 2010 from 4-6PM in room 409 of 745 Commonwealth Avenue (STH building).
