MYTHS THROUGH TIME

Myths in western culture and imagery were inherited from the Greeks; ignored for a while in the Middle Ages, the myths became popular subject matter once more during the Italian Renaissance.
These mythological stories became the model of spiritual human values. The Florentines cleverly wove meaning from pagan sources seamlessly into Christian values.
in these three talks, Alice Foster will help us discover the deeper meanings of such stories and myths. She will focus on a selection of popular mythical characters from Venus, Goddess of Love, to St George, the dragon slayer, drawing on the works in our collection.
The three afternoon talks will take place onsite and online via Zoom.
Booking is essential and tickets are £42 for the three talks onsite, £24 for the online sessions.
