Crossroads of Culture: A Virtual Visit to the New Eastern Mediterranean Gallery at the Penn Museum
Like Judaism today, the religion’s founding and development cannot be separated from the larger context in which it exists. There were three monotheistic religions — Judaism, Christianity and Islam — that emerged in the Eastern Mediterranean region that includes modern Israel, Jordan and Syria, among other nations. All three spread throughout the world. Yet they were all born and raised in the same vibrant and eclectic region. And it was that territory’s melding of different cultures and ideas that led to such an impactful legacy. Join us on Thursday May 11th at 10 AM PDT/1 PM EDT for a virtual visit to the to the Penn Museum’s new Eastern Mediterranean Gallery with our special CSP guide – Dr. Sharon Keller – as we explore the “Crossroads of Culture” through the amazing collection of artifacts in this new exhibit.
