Illuminating the Word 

Founders Day is an annual event sponsored by the Office of Church Relations, connecting students, faculty and community members with an outstanding scholar in the area of religion and a renewal and reunion event for Disciples of Christ and United Church of Christ people though all are invited.

What happens when artists and calligraphers, theologians and biblical scholars, medievalists and historians come together to produce an illuminated Bible for the 21 st century? Next year we will explore the art and theology of The Saint John’s Bible: the complete text of the Bible, written on calfskin vellum using ancient calligraphic techniques, with evocative art embodying our contemporary passion for social justice and appreciation of the advances of science. It will be a day you will never forget!

Registration opens January 2019.
