From Shame to Sin

Kyle Harper, of the Department of Classics and Letters at the University of Oklahoma, will present the lecture “From Shame to Sin: Christianity and the Reshaping of Classical Sexual Morality” from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 28, in 11 Cornell Hall.

Harper received his Ph.D. in history from Harvard University in 2007 and his dissertation will appear as a book, “Slavery in the Late Roman World, AD 275-425,” this year. The book is a study of slavery in its essential dimensions — economic, social and legal — over the final period during which the Mediterranean was united under Roman rule.

The MU departments of Classical Studies, Religious Studies and Art History and Archaeology are sponsoring this lecture.
