Materializing the Community in the Late Antique Syrian Church

  • The Open University Library, Seminar Room 4, Second Floor Milton Keynes (map)

This talk will be related to Dr Sean Leatherbury’s current book project on the mosaics of Roman and late antique Syria, and will focus on the ways in which artists and patrons articulated their places in the social and religious hierarchies of local communities through inscriptions and images in floor mosaics.

The talk will begin at 1.30pm, and a sandwich/buffet lunch will be available from 1pm. If you have any special dietary or other requirements, or any questions about the event, please email the organiser Jessica Hughes (

The seminar will take place in The Open University Library (room tbc). Come into the main glass door entrance, and turn left to find the lift and stairs to the second floor. There will be signs posted on the day.
