About this Event:

Christopher de Hamel draws on Oxford’s collection of Bibles to tell the history of the bestselling book of all time. De Hamel tells the story of 60 unique, beautiful or important Bibles. He features third-century Greek fragments, the Laudian Acts, lavishly illuminated Gospel Books, the Kennicott Bible, Wycliffite translations, the Gutenberg Bible, and the King James Bible. He also features some unusual examples that have never been illustrated in print before.

De Hamel is Donnelley Fellow Librarian of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, and has published widely on medieval manuscripts.
