"The Healing Power of Ancient Literature" is the title of a
symposium to be held in Reno, Nevada, on June 19 and 20, 2008, under
the auspices of The Parker Institute. The symposium's premise is that
literature, especially ancient literature, possesses a profound power
to heal our souls, a power that is especially needed today when the
rapidity of change and the force of world events combine to make peace
of mind an ever more distant and seemingly unreachable goal.
Featuring nationally-renowned scholars, the symposium will explore the
wisdom literature of Egypt, the Mesopotamian Epic of Gilgamesh, the
poetry of Homer, the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, and the Biblical
book of Ecclesiastes as sources of enlightenment and inspiration. For
further information, contact Dr. Lois Parker (lo...@unr.edu; 2878
Barong Court, Reno, NV 89523).
