The Lost City of Petra: Unlocking its Hidden Mysteries Virtual Program
This program is free and open to the public. No preregistration required. In 2,000, Petra was named one of the “New Seven Wonders of the World.” Forever immortalized in the finale of the movie “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” this famous archeological site was inhabited since prehistoric times, and contains tombs and temples carved into pink sandstone cliffs — earning the location its nickname, the “Rose City.” Join Professor Thomas Paradise as he takes us on a visually stunning tour of The Lost City of Petra, discussing the ancient city’s architecture, history, landscape, and people along the way. From the hidden entry at Wadi Musa to the enigmatic monastery nestled in the faraway peaks of the valley in Jordan, Paradise will share his passion, insight, and rare perspective from more than three decades of living, teaching, researching, and mentoring in the “rose-red city half as old as time” that remained hidden and forgotten for over 1,000 years.
