Portraits of the Vestal Virgins, Priestesses of Ancient Rome by Molly M. Lindner

Cover of Portraits of the Vestal Virgins, Priestesses of Ancient Rome by Molly M. Lindner

Art historian and University of Michigan graduate Molly M. Lindner discusses the Vestal Virgins, priestesses who were among the most honored women of ancient Rome. At the heart of the book is a catalog of the surviving sculpture portraits of the Vestals. Lindner discusses how the sculptures can tell us more about the Vestals than written evidence can, and she writes about the Vestals' influence on other Roman women.

When I think about my time in the design lab, I am struck by all that I have learned about the resources and fields of study at this University. I’m a School of Information undergraduate senior, and the network I am surrounded by at the Lab is the most academically diverse I have encountered in college. Every week, I meet and work with librarians, PhD students, master’s students and undergraduates in an environment where we are all equals who learn from one another.

Reflections of a UM Library Engagement Ambassador

Social Media post by Library Engagement Ambassador, Abbey Warren, on December 12th, 2016

Throughout my work as a UM Library Engagement Ambassador, I have begun to feel like I am a part of something greater than myself and am proud to contribute to such an important part of the University as a whole. This experience has shown me that the library is not only a place for books and research, but it is a kingdom of opportunities, learning, and growth.
