Ticket price

Professor Sir Diarmaid MacCulloch explains the historical context and the importance of the Bay Psalm Book, the first book to be produced in what has become the USA.  Thanks to a recent auction sale, it is now the book with the highest price-tag in the world.  Faithfully reproduced by the Bodleian Library from its own super-rare copy, it scorns outward show like the Puritan folk who made it, but its pages can be made to sing again in more than one sense.

This is a free event but places must be booked through the Bodleian Libraries.
