Vicky Alvear Shecter, author of Cleopatra's Moon brings Cleopatra VII (the Cleopatra most of us know) to life for us and helps us understand the role Isis and her mysteries played in the Greco Roman world.  Learn how brilliantly political Cleopatra was and why the Romans feared Isis.  Why was Cleopatra omitted in Shakespeare's play about Julius Caesar? We'll discuss how the ancient world was very tolerant from a religious standpoint until monotheism begins to give license for people to fight each other over whose male god was the "right" god and why the ancients might find the absende of the feminine in modern religion frightening.  And much, much more.  Tune in Isians!
