Humanities Connection - Hallowed Beauty: Sacred Texts As Artifacts

Dec 17, 2013

Recently Stevenson University, with support from the Maryland Bible Society and the Maryland Humanities Council, opened “Hallowed Beauty” an exhibition on, lecture about, and bus tour of sacred texts in the region.

The exhibition provides opportunities to initiate conversation regarding the dual existence of these objects as both sacred works and, alternatively, as secular items worthy of research by various disciplines of the humanities. Glenn T. Johnson, the Chair of the Humanities & Public History Department at Stevenson University tells us more.
