Kelsey Museum of Archaeology Map
Join us for a look at the Kelsey Museum’s latest “Crossroads of Culture” Object Spotlight with curator and professor Christiane Gruber. During this Mid-Day Morsel tour, Dr. Gruber will provide attendees with a general introduction to the objects and themes highlighted in the display. Learn about the ways in which bread has served as both a symbol and sustainer of life across various cultures and religions in the ancient and medieval Mediterranean; consider how the spheres of faith and popular practices overlapped in the use and collection of religious texts and objects, especially manuscripts and amulets; and contemplate the various ways that individuals derived meaning from their personal possessions in centuries past.

This event is free and open to all visitors.
