[WEBINAR] The Cyrus Cylinder and the Significance of Cyrus in the Biblical Tradition

Date: Tue. 18 Jun, 2013 7:30 pm
Duration: 1 Hour

The Cyrus Cylinder, a small, cylinder-shaped baked clay tablet inscribed with Akkadian cuneiform from the 6th century BCE, is arguably one of the most important texts and objects from the ancient Near Eastern world. Sometimes called "the first declaration of human rights," the Cyrus Cylinder, housed at the British Museum, is currently touring museums in the United States.

In connection with this traveling exhibition, Dr. Robert Owens, Professor of Old Testament at General Seminary, will offer a free webcast about the Cyrus Cylinder and the significance of Cyrus in the Biblical tradition on Tuesday, June 18, 2013, from 7:30pm to 8:30pm Eastern time.
