Dr. Merle Eisenberg of Oklahoma State University presents “Living at the End of an Empire: Romans in southern France at the Dawn of the Middle Ages”.
The Fall of Rome is one of the greatest historical narratives ever told. This talk explores how people during the tumultuous end of the Roman Empire used Roman political, legal, and cultural ideas to reshape their lives and create, perhaps inadvertently, the Middle Ages that would follow.
If you can’t be there in person, the presentation will also be available on Zoom at https://oklahoma.zoom.us/j/91497925617
The Medieval Fair Free Lecture Series is cosponsored by the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies University of Oklahoma.
Come learn more about the middle ages just for the fun of learning! No papers, no test, just interesting information about life long ago.
This event is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Norman Arts Council Hotel Tax Grant Program.
