Homemade Votive Offerings: Giving Gifts to the Gods in Ancient Italy
WITH DR. ALEXANDRA SOFRONIEW (via Zoom)

Saturday, January 16, 2-3 PM | (FREE)

Join art historian and classical archaeologist Dr. Alexandra Sofroniew for the start of our Art History Lecture Series. Ancient Greeks and Romans gave many different kinds of objects as votive offerings to their gods. Left outside of shrines and temples millennia ago, tens of thousands of these dedications have now been excavated by archaeologists, allowing us to glimpse how the inhabitants of early Italy communicated with the divine. So, how does one choose the perfect gift for a goddess? Was it better to go with shop-bought or homemade?
