Afternoon Lecture
Seth, Evil God of Power and Might
The ancient Egyptian god Seth is often seen as the god of evil in ancient Egyptian religion, as he killed his brother Osiris in order to claim the kingship of Egypt. In this lecture, Dr. Eugene Cruz-Uribe, Indiana University East, tries to rehabilitate Seth's stature, taking into account numerous new studies (including Dr. Cruz-Uribe's own) on the numerous protective roles that Seth held throughout Egyptian history. Some new and unpublished scenes of the god Seth, from the speaker's own fieldwork in Egypt, are shown. Sponsored by the American Research Center in Egypt - Pennsylvania Chapter and the Archaeological Institute of America - Philadelphia Chapter. Free admission.
