Professor Clifford H. Moore of the Classical Department will deliver a lecture on "The Shrine of Aesculapius at Epidaurus," in the Fogg Lecture Room at 8 o'clock this evening. Epidaurus is situated on the eastern coast of Greece and the shrine of Aesculapius located here is one of the most ancient of the old Greek temples still standing. The shrine was erected to Aesculapius, the Greek god of healing, and it is known that the temple was the principal place of worship of this deity from the sixth century B. C. until about the year 200 A. D. There are recorded about the shrine many interesting tales of miraculous healing performed during this period and Professor Moore will comment on these, illustrating his remarks with the stereopticon. The lecture is the second of the series being given by the classical department and is open to the public.
