Center for Ancient Studies Symposium
The End of Time

Whether or not the end of time is predicted in the Maya calendar, many of the ancient world civilizations hosted a belief in a universal cataclysm—the Apocalypse, the Last Judgment, the coming of the Antichrist, the Kali Yuga, the Götterdämmerung, and so on. This year’s Center for Ancient Studies annual symposium, in conjunction with the Penn Museum exhibition MAYA 2012: Lords of Time, explores what it means for a religion or civilization to foster a belief in the end of the world. Dr. Elaine Pagels, Professor of Religion, Princeton University, and author of Revelations: Visions, Prophecy, and Politics in the Book of Revelation (Viking Press, 2012), the keynote address. The symposium is free and open to the public. For more information, call 215.898.7425.
