THE joint exhibition, ‘The Garden, the Ark, the Tower, the Temple’, organized by the Museum and the Bodleian Library, has now closed.
A series of four lectures, one on each of the themes in the title, was arranged to coincide with the exhibition. The lectures were given each Thursday evening in February, in the basement gallery of the Museum, by the exhibition curators Scott Mandelbrote and Jim Bennett. Each lecture was preceded by the relevant reading from the Old Testament, and all were extremely well attended.
As well as the printed version of the catalogue, a substantial on-line version of the exhibition is currently under construction. The virtual exhibition will contain a fully-searchable edition of the catalogue text and will be accessible via the Museum’s website at http://www.mhs.ox.ac.uk/.
