Ex-votos represent a tradition that dates back to ancient times. These objects often take the form of a flat embossed metal sheet that represents either a plea for help to a saint or divinity, or one’s gratitude for an answered prayer.

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

Dr. Timothy Beal
The Florence Harkness Professor of Religion
Case Western Reserve University
Journey back to early Christianity to explore how a bunch of handwritten scrolls became the Bible, and forward to see how the multibillion-dollar Bible business is selling down its sacred capital. Today, in the twilight of print book culture and the dawn of the digital era, the Bible is undergoing another revolution -- one that will be as big as Gutenberg. It's the “end of ‘the Word’ as we know it.” Instead of attempting to protect and preserve our iconic "Good Book," Beal sees this crisis as an opportunity to rediscover “the Bible after the Bible,” not as a rock but a river, and not as a book of answers but a library of questions.
