"Exploring Religious Beliefs of the Afterlife," a panel discussion, took place August 5, 2018 at The Farrell Auditorium at the Saint Louis Art Museum
Inspired by Sunken Cities: Egypt's Lost Worlds, a major exhibition at the Saint Louis Art Museum, the panel shared conceptions of the afterlife in diverse faith traditions, including ancient Egypt, Judaism, Islam, the Baha'i Faith, and Hinduism.
Co-presented by SLAM with Arts & Faith St. Louis with support from Interfaith Partnership of Greater St. Louis.
