The Greek Bold Leaves and the ‘Bafflement Beyond’

On September 20, 2018 in Pettengill G65, Professor Rebecca Sinos from Amherst College spoke on “The Greek Bold Leaves & the ‘Bafflement Beyond.”

She shared that inscribed gold leaves or “passports to the Underworld” were placed near the dead and offered instructions about how to navigate the afterlife.

This was a lecture for the Bates Community sponsored by the Classical and Medieval Studies.
