The Romans and their Gods

An interesting day course led by George Sharpley from the Latin Qvarter.

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.

Set in these wonderful Roman remains, this course will follow stories and accounts from ancient authors, most in translation, although you will hear a little Latin too … Knowledge of Latin is not essential.
