Web clips - Classical Perspectives on Corona

In this special one-off video series produced during the corona crisis, researchers in LUCAS who work on the Classical world take time to discuss ancient reactions to disease. Do they strike a chord with us? Or is there quite a difference to how we in the modern world are responding in our situation? Whether there are similarities or not, rereading these ancient texts might help us form a new perspective. Videos will be uploaded as they’re available, so do check back here again or subscribe to the channel.
