Roger Wagner will be giving a seminar on "‘Illustrating the Psalms’" as part of TORCH's The Oxford Psalms Network lecture series.

Among all the books of the Bible the psalms have provided a unique spur to human creativity. In the Christian tradition particularly this has not only involved musical settings but also illuminations and illustrations. In this lecture Roger Wagner will explore some of the reasons for this with particular reference to his own ongoing illustrated translation of the psalms

All lectures will take place at 6.15pm (arrival from 6.00) in the Ursell Room, Pusey House, St Giles, Oxford, followed by a drinks’ reception.

This is a public event. All are welcome.
