Can't make this time?
A video recording will be sent to all participants after the seminar.
Join us as we venture to Southern Italy and Sicily to take a closer look at several Black Maddona shrines, which have been a part of European pilgrimage routes for centuries. As we venture through several key landmarks, we will develop an understanding of each shrine's ancient origins as shrines of Cybele and Isis and their unique role in Christian traditions.
