Jas Elsner on "Empires of Faith." Jas Elsner is Visiting Professor of Art and Religion and Associate Faculty in the Department of Art History. His main research interest is in the art of the Roman empire, broadly conceived to include late antiquity and the early middle ages and including Byzantium as well as the pre-Christian Classical world. Since 2013 he has been Principal Investigator on the Empires of Faith Project, a joint project of the British Museum and the University of Oxford, which explores the visual cultures of the world religions in the Mediterranean and Asia between 200 and 800 AD.

Wednesday Lunch is a Divinity School tradition started many decades ago. At noon on Wednesdays when the quarter is in session a delicious vegetarian meal is made in the Swift Hall kitchen by our student chefs and lunch crew. Once the three-course meal has reached dessert each week there is a talk by a faculty member or student from throughout the University, a community member from the greater Chicago area, or a guest from a wider distance
