Helen of Troy

Lecture by Denise Gold

Wednesday, Sept. 26, at 2 p.m.

Who was Helen? Legend tells us that she was a woman so beautiful that her face launched 1,000 Greek ships to sail across the Aegean Sea and attack Troy, the great and wealthy city in Anatolia (Turkey). Married young to Menelaus, the middle aged king of Sparta, she was abducted by the handsome young Prince Paris of Troy, who won her as a prize in a beauty contest among the three powerful goddesses. Did she go willingly with Paris, or was she a pawn in the mighty Late Bronze Age political and economic struggle, the World War of its day? What can we actually know of the fascinating woman, who was a queen, a goddess to some and to others, a harlot? Learn about the fabled Troy, the poet Homer, the archaeologist Schliemann, and hear tales of gods, warriors, lovers, and treasure.
