Cambridge University Library, West Road, CB3 9DR Cambridge, Cambridgeshire
'A Material History of the Bible in England, 1200-1600' by Dr Eyal Poleg, Senior Lecturer in Material History, Queen Mary, University of London.
All are free, and open to all. No booking required, please arrive on time.
From the rise of mass-produced Vulgates in the thirteenth century to the proliferation of innovative vernacular prints in the sexteenth, five lectures will chart the history of the Bible in England across print and reform.
Manuscripts and early printed bibles from the collections of Cambridge University Library will support a new history of the Bible in England, one which blurs the boundaries between reform and conservatism, and between Church and heresy.
Among their pages we will encounter ...a hidden portrait of Jane Seymour, the marks of scholars, children and crooks, and the discovery of America.
Each lecture will be accompanied by a display of manuscripts and books from the Library's collections and will be followed by a discussion led by a respondent.
