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 "Quo Vadis", our second 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 continuing to attend our film series.
Quo Vadis is a Hollywood classic based on the best-selling 19th century novel written by the Nobel-laureate in literature, Henryk Sienkiewicz. Immerse yourself in the world of the city of Rome under the reign of emperor Nero in the 60s of the first century AD and follow the intricate and fascinating lives of its inhabitants - a volatile mixture of travellers, scholars and competing Roman politicians. See the theatre in which the glory of Roman tradition clashes with the increasingly numerous followers of Christ and their radical new message enshrined in the Gospels.
The film screening will be followed by a Q & A session with Dr Meredith Warren, Lecturer in Early Christianity at the University of Sheffield.
The film is a part of a wider project and there will be further film screenings throughout the academic year. All remain free and everyone is most welcome to attend.

Please note that this event will take place in a different venue than the previous film screening: The Diamond, Lecture Theatre 1, University of Sheffield.
Please also note that this film is 168 minutes long. There will be a comfort break in the middle.
