From February 15- March 15 the Sustainability Institute along with Housing will be putting on an energy competition between residence halls across campus. Each building's energy usage will be measured throughout the month to determine which hall reduced their electricity use the most. Unplug your appliances, turn off your lights, and spend time in common areas (to use the same light source thus reducing your collective usage) to help your building win! Follow our event on Facebook (Willamette Unplugged: Energy Compeition) to sign our pledge and be entered into a weekly raffle to win sustainable prizes, receive updates on your building's status in the competition, and get tips on how to live a more sustainable life. Join in the first ever energy competition on campus and help make the Willamette campus a more sustainable place to live!

Holy Beauty:
Northern Renaissance Prints Discovered in an Early English Bible


Organized by Professor Ricardo De Mambro Santos, the exhibition features as its centerpiece the Hexham Abbey Bible, a rare 17th-century English Bible printed in Cambridge, England in 1629. The Bible includes 110 16th-century Dutch and Flemish prints that were interpolated into the volume after it was printed.

Prints within the Bible include works attributed to Philip Galle (Dutch, 1537-1612), after Maarten van Heemskerck (Dutch, 1498-1574); Hieronymus Cock (Flemish, 1518-1579), Jan Sadeler (Flemish, 1550-1600), and Maerten de Vos (Flemish, 1532-1603), among others.  

Visitors will have an opportunity to scroll through the Bible via touch screens in the Study Gallery. In addition, the exhibition will include 35 16th-century Dutch and Flemish prints—some like those found in the Bible and others of the period—on view in the Print Study Center and the Maribeth Collins Lobby.

Holy Beauty or Unholy Marriage? Discovery, Provenance, and Social-Theological Musings on the Hexam Abbey Bible


As part of a series of special events accompanying the exhibition Holy Beauty: Northern Renaissance Prints Discovered in an Early English Bible, guest speaker Dr. Bruce T. Martin will will address the recent discovery of the Hexam Abbey Bible (the earliest known English Bible with engravings).


The Reformation in England, punctuated by alternate Royal persuasions even as it retained broad Anglican support, prohibited its Bibles from adding images until 1660. This was as much a “graven images” problem as it was to prohibit distinctly Roman Catholic notions from seeping into the popular consciousness. Martin will propose reasons for its creation and current condition, and begin a dialogue with it in view of modern interpretative sensibilities, both social and theological, exploring, from a variety of angles, the tension between “beauty” and “text.”


Dr. Bruce T. Martin

Dr. Martin received his Th.D. from The Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, specializing in theological origins, interreligious dialogue and the English Bible. Dr. Martin has given papers at several academic conferences. He is the president of Historic Bibles & Engravings and is the discoverer of the Hexam Abbey Bible.

This lecture is offered conjunction with the Holy Beauty: Northern Renaissance Prints Discovered in an Early English Bible exhibition taking place at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art between February 10 and April 29, 2018.
