Armchair Travel with Beth Brancato: Ireland

Friday, March 20

3 p.m.
Rayburn Hall

Ireland:

Ireland is beloved worldwide as an enchanting land where legend and reality mingle. History is everywhere. An abundance of prehistoric and medieval sites will catch your curiosity.

Ireland’s long history is both fascinating and tragic, particularly in regards to the many rebellions against British rule, which ultimately resulted in independence for the south of Ireland through the formation of the Irish Republic but also led to huge loss of life.

3 p.m.
Rayburn Hall

 

FLCC’s Lori Vail will start a new 6-week program on faith and religion with the first two looking at Abrahamic Faiths.  You do not need to attend all of the talks but are encouraged to enjoy as many of the stand-alone presentations as you like.


 

Armchair Travel with Beth Brancato: Ethiopia

Friday, April 17

3 p.m.
Rayburn Hall


Ethiopia is like nowhere else on the planet, a beautiful country blessed with a peerless history, fabulous wildlife and some of Africa's most soulful peoples. Ethiopia, the only African country to have escaped European colonialism, has retained much of its cultural identity and its story is one of Africa's most fascinating. It all begins with Lucy, one of our most celebrated ancient ancestors, moves effortlessly into the realm of ancient Aksum with its obelisks and echoes of the Queen of Sheba, and then takes on power and passion as Christianity, with mysterious echoes of Ancient Israel takes center stage.
