Theodor Dunkelgrun, "Polyglot Bibles at Bryn Mawr: Rosetta Stones of Renaissance Europe"
Join us for a lecture by Dr. Theodor Dunkelgrun, Research Associate at Cambridge University.
Dr. Theodor Dunkelgrün was educated at the Universities of Leiden and Chicago, and is now a Research Associate at Cambridge University, where he teaches in the faculties of History and Divinity. His work addresses learned encounters between Jews, Christians and Muslims, and particularly the ways in which their textual traditions respond to each other and to technological innovation, from the invention of print to the invention of photography. His doctoral thesis and forthcoming book focus on the Antwerp Polyglot Bible (1568-1572) printed by Christopher Plantin; the illustration here is from Bryn Mawr's own copy of the work, which originally belonged to a Cistercian Abbey just outside Antwerp itself.
The lecture is sponsored by The Friends of the Bryn Mawr College Libraries and the Department of Greek, Latin and Classical Studies.
