We are delighted to announce that the dates for MithraCon 2025 have been set for the last weekend in April, from Friday 25th to Sunday 27th.

Mithracon is an informal research convention for people interested in the study of the god Mithras, whose popularity peaked among the Roman legions around 100-400 AD. Highlights of the convention include the opportunity to conduct research in Yale’s world-class libraries and to visit the Yale University Art Gallery, which houses the Dura Europos Mithraeum.
