        Subject: Fwd: Book Historical Lectures in Antwerp: start April 29th

> The Flemish Society for Book History (VWB) wants to welcome  
> everybody at their first Book Historical Lecture in the Hendrik  
> Conscience Library in Antwerp (Hendrik Conscienceplein 4, 2000  
> Antwerp, Belgium). It will be the first of a hopefully long-running  
> cycle of lectures focussing on book history in an international  
> context.
> All lectures will be held from 17.00 to 18.30 in the magnificent  
> Nottebohm room (http://stadsbibliotheek.antwerpen.be/tekst/ 
> Not.htm). The entrance is free, and afterwards there is a small  
> reception.
> The first lecture will be held at Wednesday April 29th at 17.00 by  
> professor Paul Dyck.

> prof. Paul Dyck (Canadian Mennonite University), Picturing the  
> Word: Antwerp Biblical Illustrations at Little Gidding
> Abstract: In the 1630s, the Ferrar family of Little Gidding (near  
> Cambridge) constructed gospel harmonies by cutting and pasting  
> printed English New Testaments and Antwerp biblical illustrations,  
> forming new pages out of pre-existing parts, and also forming what  
> did not otherwise exist: early 17th century illustrated bibles.   
> This presentation will describe the Ferrars’ project, with  
> particular attention to its marriage of a Protestant text to  
> Catholic images.
