Closing day Program: By the Hand of The Saint: The Book of Kells and Relics

Date
Sunday, May 15, 2011
Time
02:00 PM–04:15 PM

Though doubted by modern scholars, during the Middle Ages the Book of Kells was thought to be the work of the scribe Saint Columba and was thus treated as a relic. Ben Tilghman, Lecturer in the Department of Art History, Theory and Criticism at the Maryland Institute College of Art will explore how this Medieval myth might actually offer clues to the book’s origins. A free screening of the 75 minute Academy-nominate animated film, The Secret of Kells follows the talk.
