Description

See Father Columba Stewart deliver the 2019 Jefferson Lecture in the Humanities in D.C., on October 7.

You can reserve your tickets for the NEH Jefferson Lecture online starting September 4, 2019 at 12pm EST.

Father Columba Stewart, American Benedictine monk, scholar of early religions, and executive director of the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library at St. John’s University in Collegeville, Minnesota, will deliver the lecture at the Warner Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. The lecture, “Cultural Heritage Present and Future: A Benedictine Monk’s Long View,” is a free public event and will also stream live online.

Dubbed “the monk who saves manuscripts from ISIS,” by Atlantic magazine, Stewart has spent 15 years working with international religious leaders, government authorities, and archivists to photograph and digitize ancient to early modern religious manuscripts, especially those at risk due to war, strife, or economic uncertainty.
