About the event
Gilgamesh, a 400 year-old epic, is the most influential Middle-Eastern text, aside from the Bible. It is the story of a King and his quest for immortality. Gilgamesh travels to the end of the Earth to find immortality. Instead, he is given timeless advice on the purpose of life. This advice is still as meaningful today as it was 400 years ago.
