The Ancient Romans and their Gods

The Ancient Romans and their Gods

Saturday 21 March 2020 10.00am - 4.30pm

These colourful fabulous figures enliven the literature of the Romans. But what of their darker side, those mysterious powers with chilling consequences for mortals who err in some way or who are just in the wrong place at the wrong time? Religious beliefs embraced the ‘personality’ gods who figure in ancient literature and art, like Jupiter, Mars and Venus, and also all kinds of less visible spirits.

This course will follow stories and accounts from ancient authors (in translation). You may hear a little Latin too, but knowledge of Latin is not essential.

Course fee: £50 (£45 concessionary rate)

The Venue: The Parliament Suite, Gloucester Cathedral
