In the center of Slavic writing “Slovo” at VDNKh there will be a lecture “Tailed gorgon and bearded Aphrodite: how Antiquity was represented in Ancient Russia”. It will be conducted by Nikolai Butskikh, the curator of ancient Russian manuscripts of the Russian National Library.

The guests will learn how, after the adoption of Christianity, the culture was borrowing ancient subjects. The phoenix bird reborn from the ashes, for example, personified Jesus Christ, and the centaur seemed to be a relative of King Solomon himself.

To attend the lecture, you need to pass the free registration… The number of places is limited. All guests are required to wear masks and gloves.
