Join Field Agent Ryan Susurrus of Atlas Obscura Society Philadelphia for a lecture on the history of various cults and new religious movements in ancient and contemporary society. Sate your curiosity as we explore how individuals become involved with and separate themselves from cults. We'll delve deeply into specific cults directly and peripherally connected to Philadelphia, including the legacy of lesser known South Philly cult leader Mirra Mita of the Holy Ghost Society.
Ritual refreshments will be served. Items from more well-known cults of the 21st century will be on hand for our viewing and reading pleasure.
