Book Chat – Vettius Valens’ Anthology with Chris Brennan

What's Happening

Come celebrate the 1903rd birthday of Vettius Valens, a 2nd-century Hellenistic astrologer who wrote the longest surviving treatise on Hellenistic astrology. Professional astrologer Chris Brennan recently worked with Mark Riley to produce a print edition of Riley's translation of The Anthology. CAELi Director Jenn Zahrt will host a discussion with Chris about this project and moderate your questions. It's going to be a Lot of Fun (pun intended).
