The blurb:
Platonism played an important role in the development of early Christianity and is essential to a deep understanding of the Christian theological tradition. Join the Hellenic Museum and Bernie Lewin, from the Platonic Academy of Melbourne, for a fascinating lecture which explores the multifaceted relationship between Platonism and Christianity, from the emergence of Hellenistic Judaism to the Platonic revival during the Renaissance.
