President Daniele Struppa will present a lecture reflecting on a major theme from The Saint John’s Bible: celebrating science, technology and discovery. The lecture will be held on Tuesday, April 9, at 7 p.m. in the Wallace All Faiths Chapel of the Fish Interfaith Center. A reception will follow. This event is free and open to the public.
The Saint John’s Bible is the first hand written and illuminated Bible to be created since the invention of the printing press. Chapman has one of the seven volumes of The Saint John’s Bible on the campus this year. The Bible’s illuminations highlight 21st century themes: the importance of women in the Bible, the biblical ethic of concern for those pushed to society’s margins, and celebrating science, technology and discovery.
Following the lecture, you will be able to see The Saint John’s Bible while enjoying a celebratory reception with food and wine.
