Jane Harrison: Classics for Paganism
Time & Location
26 Aug, 19:30 – 21:00
Treadwell's Books, 33 Store St, Fitzrovia, London WC1E 7BS, UK
About The Event
Victorian Classicist Jane Ellen Harrison was a renegade celebrity scholar who promoted widely several of the concepts which came to be pillars of the Pagan revival: the concept of an ancient universal mother goddess; the three phases of Maiden, Mother, and Crone; and the belief that Greek religion was cthonic, ecstatic and primal. Harrison and her ideas are the subject of this lecture. She herself was charismatic, powerful character; she took society by storm, rocking a few boats and changing the landscape of ancient religion. Join us for a memorable lecture

Dr Liz Williams has a PhD in History and Philosophy of Science from the University of Cambridge. She is a science fiction and fantasy writer, also co-director of a witchcraft supply business. Dr Williams is a wonderful speaker and we welcome her back to Treadwell's.
