Dura-Europos Exhibition Opens

By tom.elliott@nyu.edu

The latest exhibition at NYU's Institute for the Study of the Ancient World opens today: Edge of Empires: Pagans, Jews, and Christians at Roman Dura-Europos. It runs through January 8, 2012. Admission for individuals is free. Hours are 11am - 6pm (11am - 8pm on Fridays), closed Mondays.

The exhibition illustrates the international, indeed pluralistic character of Dura-Europos, highlighting objects that demonstrate the coexistence of multiple religions — including polytheistic cults, Judaism, and Christianity — the great variety of languages employed by its population, and its role as an international military garrison.
