The Commandments: America’s Ultimate Top Ten List
MAR 11 @ 3PM

 

Historian Jenna Weissman Joselit explores America’s unique attraction to the Ten Commandments. Her 2017 book Set in Stone: America’s Embrace of the Ten Commandments illustrates how the decrees have popped up in nearly all aspects of American culture. Over time, the commandments have come to represent comic book fodder, inspiration for law, the topic of films, and the ultimate moral compass. Tickets are $18.
