Who were the daughters of the night?
How did Arachne so upset Minerva?
Ever seen the underworld?
What’s in a curse?

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.

All texts are provided in translation but you will hear the Latin too of Virgil, Ovid, Horace, Lucretius and more.

Tutor: George Sharpley of The Latin Qvarter.

Cost: £60 per person.
