Event description

Description

This talk is given by Tom Duncan. Syria’s recent history of civil war and interference from outside powers with the disastrous consequences for its historic monuments is nothing new. Tom Duncan’s lecture will seek to look at a selection of its historic treasures seen against the rise of famous Empires and the three religions ‘of the book’: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The fabulous city of Palmyra, fine early Christian monasteries, the great Umayyad Mosque in Damascus and Crusader castles, such as Crac des Chevaliers, will all be featured.

Coffee at 10am, lecture 10.30 - noon, followed by a complimentary glass of wine or juice
