Religious Studies Colloquium: 'Religion and Philosophy in the Ancient Greek Household' - October 24
Please join us for the lecture "Religion and Philosophy in the Ancient Greek Household," presented by Bradley A. Ault, associate professor and chair of the University at Buffalo's Department of Classics, on Tuesday, October 24, at 9:30 a.m. in Butler Library 210.
When one thinks of ancient Greek religion and philosophy, it is not immediately apparent that there might be settings for both at the level of the household; however, the Greek house was steeped in religious practice. It also offered an ideal venue for philosophical discourse. The household even served as a favorite topic for philosophers. Taking up several examples, we will see how houses and households proved an unexpected opportunity to showcase the roles played by religion and philosophy.
