The BA Antiquities Museum organizes a lecture entitled "The Path to the New Hermopolis: The History, Philosophy, and Future of the City of Hermes" on Monday, 14 October 2019, at 1:00 pm, at the BA, Main Building, Third Floor Floating Room (F3).
Dr. Mervat Nasser, Founder of the New Hermopolis, will deliver the lecture. She will tackle her journey towards creating a "New Hermopolis" with the same spirit of its predecessor. She will discuss the history of this unique territory in Middle Egypt, as well as the values that emanated from this cosmic city to shape our thinking throughout the ages, especially the Hermetic concepts of humanism, idealism, utopianism, and fraternity. The lecturer will elaborate how these ideals inspire our dreams for a better world.
