The Sheffield Classical Association and The Migration of Faith: Clerical Exile in Late Antiquity Project at the University of Sheffield would like to invite you to the film screening of "Agora", our fourth and last instalment in the series of films aiming to bring the image of the Roman and early Christian world alive. We wanted to thank everyone that attended our last screening and hope that we can interest you in attending our final screening on the project.
Fourth-century Egypt - an affluent Roman province; historically, the diadem in the Roman crown. It is A.D. 391 and Christianity is increasingly prominent in Roman society, culture and politics. It has now been 80 years since the iconic battle of Milvian Bridge which led to the conversion of Constantine - the first Christian Roman emperor. Follow the story of Hypatia, a philosopher in Alexandria whose life is about to become a struggle for the survival of an old world system. Witness her struggle portraying and illustrating the inexorable clash between the resurgence of triumphant Christianity and the foundation of Roman and Hellenistic culture - its traditional religion and learning.
The film will be followed by a Q&A session with Dr Richard Flower, Senior Lecturer in Classics and Ancient History, University of Exeter.
Please note that this event will take place in a different venue than the previous film screening. It will now take place in the Film Unit, the Students' Union, University of Sheffield.
