Student exhibit on Books of Hours
Dr. Elliott Wise’s Fall 2021 Art History 490/540 class are guest curators of the newest exhibit in Special Collections. “The Book and the Body” showcases the students’ original research using images from Special Collections’ printed and manuscript Books of Hours. The exhibit examines how early readers would have interacted emotionally, spiritually, and physically with these illustrated books within the context of everyday devotional practices.
“The Book and the Body” will be on display in the reading room now through January 31, 2022.
