Mythos. Beliefs in Augusta Emerita

Aion-Chronos. National Museum of Roman Art in Mérida © Ministerio de Cultura

The National Museum of Roman Art (MNAR) has brought together an important collection of pieces and texts which remind us of the role of Roman mythology in Augusta Emerita.

This exhibition, organised in collaboration with the Mérida International Classical Theatre Festival, displays a selection of works illustrating different facets of the universe of myths, ever present in theatre as the backbone of Greco-Roman literature. The myth is revealed as an explanation of a reality linked to everyday fiction. The collection brings the past closer to the present and helps us to understand the essence of a society from which we have descended.
