Dr. Timothy Graham will be giving a talk on March 22, 2016 at the Albuquerque OASIS education center.  Join Dr. Graham as he discusses "Illuminated Bibles of the Middle Ages."

A remarkable aspect of the Christian tradition has been the production of richly illustrated copies
of the Scriptures. The most beautiful Bibles were produced during the European Middle Ages. Learn
about the major stages in the history of medieval Bible decoration and illustration, beginning with
the oldest surviving complete copy of the Vulgate and including the Bibles moralisées, the magnificent
Bible picture-books made for royal and aristocratic patrons between the 13th and 15th centuries.
