Egyptian Oracles Lecture 

When: Sun., Aug. 29, 2:30 p.m. 2010

In ancient Egypt, oracles played a role somewhere between lawyers and priests. During civil and criminal disputes, these spiritually adept individuals were tasked with asking the appropriate deity to dole out opinions, verdicts, and sentences. At 20 Barrows Hall on the UC Berkeley campus on Sunday, Aug. 29, Terry Moore delivers a lecture titled "Ask the God: Oracles in Pharaonic Egypt." 2:30 p.m., free.
