Event description: 

This colloquium featured a conversation between Brad Inwood (Yale - Classics & Philosophy), Bryant Kirkland (UCLA - Classics), and Laura Nasrallah (Yale - Divinity School & Religious Studies). Our three speakers examined pluralism in the 1st to 2nd century CE, exploring the interaction between cultures, religions, language, and traditions in the Roman Empire and wider Mediterranean world characteristic of this period. What forms of conflict and creativity emerge from this knot of intersecting traditions? What continuities should we trace between the Graeco-Roman 1st-2nd c. CE world and that of 5th century BCE Athens? What ruptures and new entanglements might we find? The conversation was moderated by Malina Buturović (Yale - Classics).
