      Free movie on gods and goddesses

      The Theosophical Society hosts a free movie screening of “Gods & Goddesses,” 7 pm Monday, Nov. 25, in third-floor conference room 330 of the Griggs-Midway Building, 1821 University Ave. W., St. Paul .This documentary from the History Channel television series explores the exploits of ancients gods and goddesses throughout time, as recorded in stories passed down from generation to generation. Their images provide the basis of some of the most beautiful artworks ever created, and their names echo through history to this day. See the astonishing artworks that have preserved their images for all time, and how these epic figures have been integrated into modern life. And visit the phenomenal temples that were built in their names. For countless generations prior to biblical times, tales of gods and goddesses were passed down by storytellers and interwoven into traditions and philosophies. Each city devoted itself to particular gods. But these gods also had human frailties. Where did the pantheon originate? Did any of the stories in Greek mythology actually occur? We look at new archaeological evidence that supports the possibility. A discussion will follow the movie. Refreshments. Requested donation. (651) 235-6645.
