DESCRIPTION

In a lively, illustrated presentation, Dr. Jennifer Rose, professor of religion at Claremont Graduate University, will provide an introduction to the Zoroastrian religion, one of the world’s oldest surviving belief systems. Dr. Rose’s talk will explore these points of interaction by tracing the religion’s history in relation to artifacts on display in Everlasting Flame, an upcoming exhibition at London’s School of Oriental and African Studies, as well as objects in the Cyrus Cylinder exhibition on view at the Asian Art Museum.
