"Between Heaven and Hell... The Purgatory Museum"
Past Live Lecture on November 28th 2022 with Liz Lev
Come and Discover:
November, traditionally the "month of the dead," is a time to pray for the dead and hope for heaven.
In this week's "Hidden Gems" lecture, we'll visit two museums that reveal the link between this world and the next, the Purgatory Museum and the Capuchin Crypt.
We'll close with a bit of color from Michelaneglo's Last Judgment as a reminder that instead of the zombies and ghouls that have overtaken this feast, everyone is called to glory in the afterlife.
The lecture has been recorded for you!
