Event description

Description

Don’t miss two fascinating lunchtime talks presented in association with Medieval Books Great and Small: the Clumber Bible exhibition (Friday 30th June-Sunday 9th July 2017, University of Melbourne).

The Duke of Newcastle and the Clumber legacy

Let Shane Carmody delight you with the enthralling story of the Dukes of Newcastle and the family seat Clumber House, Nottinghamshire. Not least, learn about the family’s book collecting interests and how they came to own an enormous 23kg medieval Bible!

Shane is a widely published historian on libraries and collections who has managed major international exhibitions including The Medieval Imagination: Illuminated Manuscripts from Cambridge, Australia and New Zealand (State Library of Victoria, 2008).

Early English Illustrated Biblical Cycles

Professor Bernard Muir will captivate you with his commentary on a selection of early English biblical texts, explaining the meaning of the often beautiful iconography and other decorative schemas.

Professor Bernard Muir taught medieval studies at the University of Melbourne for 30 years, and has produced several medieval manuscript editions, including the Bodleian Digital Texts Series (Oxford University).
