St. John's Bible
Dr. Jamie Higgs, Dr. Deeb Kitchen


Event Description:

View and learn about how the St. John’s Bible – the first fully illuminated and hand-written Bible created since the Middle Ages—uses its power to shift focus towards women, social justice, and contemporary issues.

This event – featuring the actual St. John’s Bible! – invites the public to envision Biblical stories in new ways.  After enjoying a brief reception, Dr. Jamie Higgs, associate professor of art history at Marian University, will give a lecture exploring the history of manuscripts as tools of power and change and how art can be used to re-frame social, political, and theological issues. Guests will also be invited to view the St. John’s Bible and interact with docents who can answer additional questions.

Free visitor parking is available throughout the Marian University campus.

Walk-ins welcome. RSVPs encouraged by Nov. 5.

Presented by Peace and Justice Studies at Marian University, Art & Design at Marian University, Marian University Writing Center.
