“Light for Gods, Light of Gods: The Ecospatial Dimensions of Divine Radiance in the Ancient Mediterranean”

March 11 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

A fundamental dimension of divine essence in ancient Mediterranean beliefs is the radiance of divine beings. How was it experienced in ritual practice? And how did space, natural or artificial, condition modes of interaction with the divine?

Nassos Papalexandrou is Professor of Art History at the University of Texas at Austin. He received his PhD from Princeton University focusing on the ritual dimensions of Early Greek figurative art. Prior to teaching at The University of Texas at Austin, he taught at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor and spent the 2001–02 academic year as a research fellow at the Center for Hellenic Studies, Washington DC. His first book, The Visual Poetics of Power: Warriors, Youths, and Tripods in Early Greece, was published in 2005. In 2021 he published a book titled Bronze Monsters and the Cultures of Wonder: Griffin Cauldrons in the Preclassical Mediterranean (University of Texas Press).
