Lecture on The St Cuthbert Gospel
By Jim Bloxam and Kristine Rose

October 31st, 2007, 6pm
Butler Library, Columbia University
Room 523

Jim Bloxam and Kristine Rose from Cambridge University
in England will give a lecture based on the St
Cuthbert Gospel of St John, formerly known as the
Stonyhurst Gospel. 

Ascribed to the end of the seventh century, the St.
Cuthbert Gospel is the one of the oldest surviving
western bindings. It was discovered in 1104 buried in
the coffin of St. Cuthbert of Lindisfarne,
Northumbria.

Jim Bloxam and Kristine Rose will present their
theories and assertions based on their recent
examination and reappraisal of the binding. 

Jim Bloxam is a Senior Book Conservator at Cambridge
University Library. His work and research is focused
on early printed books, manuscripts and archives, as
well as the history of books, their structural
qualities and cultural context. He is an Accredited
Conservator/Restorer of the Institute of Paper
Conservation, and has taught at the Montefiascone
Summer School Library Project.

Kristine Rose is a graduate from the Camberwell
College of Art BA(Hons)Conservation. Since graduating
she has been employed by Cambridge University Library
where she has worked on a variety of manuscript
material. 

The lecture will be held in Butler Library, room 523
at Columbia University at 6pm. Columbia University is
located at 2960 Broadway at 116th Street. Butler
Library is located on the south side of the Quad.

Following the lecture, there will be an opportunity to
