Mirror at the Gate: Greek Buddhist and Christian Art and Archaeology

Joseph A.P. Wilson, PhD, Fairfield University, Connecticut

Early Greek-Buddhist art and artifacts of Central Asia appear remarkably similar to early Christian art and artifacts of the Middle East. This presentation will present material connections between these neighboring regions during Late Antiquity.  Eastern and Western religions were not entirely distinct. Political turmoil of the late Roman Empire spurred migration between these ancient cultures which deeply influenced the artistic traditions of both.
