Penn Museum Scholars Lunch Lecture Series

Divine Kingship: a View from Ancient Mesopotamia

Philip Jones, Associate Curator, Babylonian Section

Ancient Mesopotamians accorded their kings divine status on and off for about a thousand years. What did they mean by this honor and what does this phenomenon have in common with other examples of divine kingship from around the globe?

Guests are welcome to bring their lunch.
