W. Martin Bloomer, “The Empire of Roman Memory”
The Departments of Classics and Theology, with support from the Medieval Institute, the Department of History, a Henkels grant from the Institute for Scholarship in the Liberal Arts, the Notre Dame Workshop on Ancient Philosophy, and the Program of Liberal Studies, are sponsoring a year-long colloquium in memory of Sabine MacCormack (1941-2012), the Rev. Theodore Hesburgh Professor of Arts and Letters, exploring the rich literary, political, and religious culture of the Roman and Byzantine empires.
Throughout the year, both ND faculty and off-campus scholars have come together periodically for lectures, graduate seminars, and discussion. Today’s lectures are the final ones in the series.
A reception will follow the presentation.
