|Film Description:||Religions Along the Silk Road|
The renowned "Silk Road" is known for the travelers and trade goods that moved great distances between the east and the west. Aspects of culture were also transferred, including knowledge and practice of various religions. This program features four short lectures by Penn scholars, followed by an open discussion on the role of Islam, Buddhism, Christianity, and Judaism, and their impact, along the Silk Road.
