Professor Christine Thomas of the University of California, Santa Barbara will be speaking on “Ordinary Bodies and Divine Intervention: Illness and Healing in the Roman Empire.”

Ancient descriptions of healing found in inscriptions and votive offerings from second-century Roman Asia Minor offer insight on how ancient people construed the body and the concept of health.
