Dr. John Humphrey presents

“Exploring Syria's Ancient Past”

Wednesday, April 18

7:30-9:00 pm

Varsity Acres Presbyterian Church

4612 Varsity Drive NW

Most of us have followed with horror the devastating civil war that erupted in Syria in 2011 and continues seven years later. It has killed between 350,000 and 500,000 civilians and combatants and has brought about the destruction of much of the country’s ancient past.

This presentation will look at the remarkable accomplishments of the area before and during Greek and Roman antiquity: Damascus and Aleppo, rival claimants to the title of the world’s longest continuously-inhabited city; Christian churches where congregants pray in ancient Aramaic; a remote Roman fort on the Euphrates River; and the famous (and beautiful) caravan city of Palmyra.

But the war has not been kind to these ancient marvels: many have been partially or completed destroyed during the war and will probably never be rebuilt. So here is a “trigger warning:” we’ll also briefly look at the current condition of some of these monuments.
