The Bible Beyond the Bible: From Apocrypha to Anime

When: Wed., Feb. 17, 6-7 p.m. 2016

The 2016 Lennox Lecture Series at Trinity University continues with a lecture by Professor Annette Yoshiko Reed of the University of Pennsylvania. This year’s series, titled “(Re)Inventing the Bible,” looks closely at how communities throughout history have created and recreated their bibles, and how the constantly shifting nature of authoritative texts, collections, and interpretations forces us to reconsider what we mean when we talk about “The Bible.” In this lecture, Professor Reed will discuss the influence of texts that didn’t make it into traditional biblical canons by tracing their reception from medieval art to modern novels and contemporary anime.
