On Zeus vs God - Teresa Morgan

Video from PublicChristianity

"Teresa Morgan explains how morality looked different to Christians than to Greeks and Romans." from video introduction

"Teresa Morgan studied classics at Cambridge University, theology at Oxford, and violin and viola in London and Cologne. She joined YDS in 2022, having taught Greek and Roman history at Oxford since 1998. Her research lies in the history of ideas and mentality, and the social and cultural practices and institutions which shape and are shaped by them. She is especially interested in the way groups of people think: particularly groups ‘below’ the level of the socio-intellectual elites who provide so much of our evidence for the ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern worlds. One idea which underlies all her work is that mentality is as powerful a societal force as, for instance, politics or economics.." from the website: Yale Divinity School
