International Seminar – “Aquae Sacrae. Water and Sacredness in Ancient Times.”

European researchers are to meet at the University of Girona to study the sacred role of water in ancient times, both as a force of nature and as something to be venerated and worshipped.

The International Seminar “Aquae Sacrae. Water and Sacredness in Ancient Times”, will be held on the 12th and the 13th of July. It will be held in the Sala de Grados by the University of Girona (Faculty of Arts). The seminar will be organised by the Archeological and Pre-Historical team from the Department of Historical Research in the University of Girona. The seminar is included in the E.U. Project “Water Shapes” and will be given by experts on the subject from Spain, France, Italy and Portugal.

Water as a source of worship
Studying the significance of water from ancient times goes beyond its elemental form. Water is an indispensable force of nature, essential to all life forms and in past times was worthy of religious worship status.

The seminar aims to analyse some of the different ways in which this religiosity has manifested itself through the ages and by which means its legacy has been passed down to us, whether through archeology, architecture,epigraphy, or through art.
