The Aspen Institute continues its series on Renaissance Rome with a seminar in Aspen this December. During three morning sessions moderated by Ken Adelman, our world-class experts, Bill Cook, Jeremy Hartnett, and Ross King will discuss aspects of Rome that have endured: architecture, religion, sculpture, politics, painting, commerce, and law. While Ross specializes in the art and architecture and Bill in the government and church, Jeremy specializes on the social and economic life of ancient Romans, aspects of which carry over to our lives in modern times. Open to everyone, this seminar is an extraordinary opportunity to experience and learn about this rich topic with world-class experts.
