Late Roman Egypt

Michael Tunnicliffe kicks off the MAES New Year on Monday 10th January, with a Zoom lecture covering a period often neglected by Egyptologists!

Michael Tunnicliffe: Late Roman Egypt: From Marcus Aurelius to the Empire Divided

Egypt became part of the Roman Empire from the death of Cleopatra in 30 BC.  Two hundred years later, Egypt was a significantly different country under Roman rule, but more change was to follow with the growth of Christianity and its adoption by the Roman Emperors in the 4th century. This lecture will explore Late Roman Egypt, from the reign of Marcus Aurelius to 395 when the mighty Roman Empire split into two separate parts.

Michael Tunnicliffe is a freelance lecturer for a number of Adult Education providers in the North West of England. He studied Theology at Birmingham and Cambridge and completed the University of Manchester’s Certificate in Egyptology. He has a particular interest in the intersection of Egyptology and biblical religion.

All welcome. Lecture free to MAES members. Guests £5 via Eventbrite Doors open 7:30pm. Lecture begins at 8pm.
