Bridwell Library Exhibition: Devotional Printing in France, Seventeenth through Nineteenth Centuries
Start Date: 5/25/2017 All Day
End Date: 8/25/2017

Event Description

Bridwell Library at Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University announces an exhibition featuring works that document French interests in personal devotion in the seventeenth through nineteenth centuries, including such topics as Christian instruction, ritual and church history, the Passion, and reflections on sin and penitence.

The history of religious printing often emphasizes large and elaborately produced books held by wealthy individuals and institutions. Yet publishers also responded to the desire among the general population to possess and utilize religious books. Accessible, small format works provided an intimate experience in prayer, meditation, and religious instruction. The publishing histories of these works also demonstrate the international and cultural importance of themes inherited over several centuries and shared across languages and borders.   

The exhibition will be on display from May 26 through August 25, 2017, and will be located in the Entry Hall at Bridwell Library. For more information, contact Rare Books and Manuscripts Librarian, R. Arvid Nelsen, 214-768-3440.
