Salvete, collegae praeclarī!
President’s Message August, 2015
As we enter into the last few days of summer, I have been reflecting upon my experiences this summer and I wanted to share my observations with you.
Under the category of "You know you're a Classics nerd when..."
While visiting Pisa this summer (along with several thousand other tourists),
I was in the Campo Santo (the covered cemetery next to the duomo)
and was I admiring the medieval funerary monuments or the Renaissance
frescoes. No! I was all excited by the spoliated Roman sarcophagi and
and tombstone inscriptions which the Pisans used to decorate the building.
Reminder: (Look for info under the "Meeting Agenda" tab)
The Fall meeting of NJCA will be Oct 24 at the Pennsauken
