Cults at The Convent: Philadelphia and Beyond

Surrender your individuality as we explore various cult movements peripherally and directly connected to Philadelphia.

Join Field Agent Ryan Susurrus of Atlas Obscura Society Philadelphia for a lecture on the history and types of cults and new religious movements in ancient and contemporary society. Sate your curiosity on how individuals become involved with and separate from cults, as we delve deeply into specific cults that are directly and peripherally connected to Philadelphia.  

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.
