This spring the Sheffield Classical Association/Clerical Exile film club will be showing three films that explore the theme of travel, forced mobility, and Christianity in the Roman empire.
Our first film in this series will be Quo Vadis on 28 February, in the Diamond Lecture Theatre 1 at 6pm.
Quo Vadis follows the love story between Roman general Marcus Vinicius and Barbarian hostage-turned-Christian Lygia against the background of the great fire of Rome in 64AD.
The film will be followed by a Question and Answer session with Dr Meredith Warren from the Department of English. Meredith specialises in early Christian literature.
