|12.00pm||The Greek Gods: Religion in the Ancient World – Dr Christopher Farrell. Meet your Classics lecturer here
|When we think about ancient Greece and Rome one of the first things that often comes to mind are gods, goddesses, and mythology. In this session you will be introduced to aspects of religion in the ancient Mediterranean. We will explore stories that people told about the divine and the functions they believed the gods played in the universe, as well as how, where, and why people sought to interact with their gods, and what this tells us about ancient Greek culture.|
