Wednesday, September 6, 2017, 12:30 pm

Join Susan B. Matheson, the Molly and Walter Bareiss Curator of Ancient Art, for a discussion in conjunction with the exhibition “Drink That You May Live”: Ancient Glass from the Yale University Art Gallery. Learn about ancient glass vessels that depict a range of religious figures and symbols, including Dionysos, a menorah, and an ascetic Christian saint, and what these objects reveal about pagan, Jewish, and Christian communities in the Mediterranean world during the Graeco-Roman era.

Space is limited. Please meet in the Gallery lobby.
