About the Event
What sort of beliefs did the ancient Greeks and Romans have about ghosts and the afterlife? What made the dead restless? Could spirits of the dead be summoned by the living? Could ghosts interact with the living? What did ghosts look like? What kinds of stories did the ancients tell about ghosts? Were there haunted houses in the ancient world? This Master Class will include information, discussion, and activities addressing these and other questions about accounts of ghosts and hauntings from two and three thousand years ago, and from both visual and literary sources. You may be surprised at how similar some of those ancient beliefs and stories are to modern ones! Previous participation and previous knowledge are not required.
