The Master and Margarita is an extraordinary glimpse into the fledgling Soviet Union by its most beloved novelist. It also gives equal time to Satan, a large black cat, an extraordinary love story, Jesus Christ, and Pontius Pilate, and ... well... so much more.

This lecture will explore Bulgakov’s extraordinary life, his relations with Joseph Stalin, and his masterwork, which is critically acclaimed as one of the world’s greatest novels.
