Ancient Indulgences: Food and Diseases of the Bible
Saturday, September 17, 2016, 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at the San Diego Archaeological Center
Join us for the third installment of our Ancient Indulgences food and lecture series! Numerous diseases and medical conditions are mentioned in the Bible but these accounts were written long before the rise of medical science. This presentation by Phil Goscienski, MD, the Stone-Age Doctor, seeks to identify them and to place them in a modern perspective. A study of these diseases adds to our understanding of life in the biblical era. Following the lecture will be a tasting of many of the foods mentioned in the Bible as well as a silent auction featuring local winery gift baskets and more.
