Event Image Exhibition | "David Roberts: Travels in the Holy Land" | Aug. 10 - Dec. 22
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

David Roberts (1796-1864) was a Scottish painter who traveled to the Near East in the late 1830s and produced a series of bound, hand-colored lithographs of Egypt and the Holy Land in the 1840s from sketches made during his travels. These folios provided Europeans, and eventually Americans, with their first views of the exotic Orient, changing forever their vision of Egypt and the Middle East. This small exhibition features several of Roberts’ prints.

Big Questions Over Lunch
11:45 AM - 12:45 PM

*WU Campus - Putnam University Center

"Was Jesus a Zealot - a Jewish revolutionary who aimed to throw off Roman rule through violent uprising?"
Stephen Patterson, Atkinson Professor of Religious and Ethical Studies

This theory, made popular in the 1960s by S.G.F. Brandon, is the subject of Reza Aslan's best-selling new book "Zealot." So what do critical scholars think? Dr. Patterson will walk you through the evidence and let you decide.

Join us on the first Tuesday of the month for a lively brown-bag seminar and discussion on a variety of topics. Bring your lunch or purchase it at the Cat Café.
