Was there really a Pope named Joan? The historical evidence says no—that the story is just a myth. But every myth has a history, and the history of this particular myth can teach us a great deal about religion, gender relations, and depictions of women in faith and culture from the early Middle Ages to today.

Join Dr. Christopher M. Bellitto in CAS 106 Tuesday, March 18th 12:30 - 1:30 pm for a fascinating lecture on the myth of Pope Joan.
