Podcast 4.3: Salvation from the Gods – Asklepios at Pergamon (Pergamum)

Here I discuss the way in which people in Roman times believed that gods saved them in their daily lives, focusing on the case of the healing sanctuary of Asklepios at Pergamon (Pergamum).  This is part of series 4 (Honouring the Gods in the Roman Empire) of the Religions of the Ancient Mediterranean podcast.

    Enjoying the podcast I just thought it would help everyone to know that on google earth you can search for Asklepion and it will bring you to it. It is barely out of city limits and directly west. Their are also some pictures that have been taken from their that you can view.

    Thanks Phil.
