[BKARTS] November Lecture in Boston



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

November 8, 2007, 6:30pm
Mezzanine Conference Room
Boston Public Library

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.

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.
