Fr. Eric Hollas, OSB, of St. John’s University in Collegeville, Minn., will offer a lecture entitled “Humor and Whimsy in The Saint John’s Bible” on Tuesday, February 17, at 7:15 p.m., in the Bauccio Commons board room. In addition to shedding new light on the genesis of The Saint John’s Bible, Fr. Hollas will highlight the many visual puns and quirkiness in the art of the first fully hand-rendered Bible manuscript crafted in over 500 years.
This lecture is part of the Beckman Humor Project, and is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served at the lecture and also at the 6:30 p.m. reception in Buckley Center Gallery that officially kicks off the display of 10 large prints from the project.
The talk is sponsored by the Garaventa Center. For more information, contact Karen Eifler at 8014 or email@example.com.
