Religious Experience in Ancient Rome


Religious Experience in Ancient Rome

Religious Experience in Ancient Rome

Using objects from the Norton Van Buren Archaeology Study Collection of the American Academy in Rome and curated by students from the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies (ICCS), this exhibition reveals the varieties of ancient religious experience in Rome. From sacrifice to religious games, from the practices of slaves to princes, the objects describe a world of enormous religious variety, in which old and new, local and foreign all coexisted. From images of Isis to votive pigs, the exhibit will include objects never before exhibited to the public.

The exhibition will open on Fridays and Saturdays from 5:00 to 7:00pm until January 19, 2013; it will be closed on December 28 and 29, 2012. Special openings available on request, please contact Megan Goldman-Petri at mgthree [at] (mgthree[at]princeton[dot]edu).

This exhibition was made possible by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
