Guest lecture by Columba Stewart
ACRH facilitates a book presentation and a lecture by Fr. Columba Stewart, OSB, DPhil (Hill Museum & Manuscript Library), entitled 'Discovering a New World in the Old: Revealing, Preserving, and Sharing the Syriac Manuscript Heritage in the Near East and India.' This lecture will be held on the occasion of the appearance of the fifteenth volume of the edition of the Peshitta, the second-century Syriac Bible still used by Syriac Christians in the Middle East and the Diaspora. This is the first volume prepared in Amsterdam after the move of the Peshitta Institute from Leiden.
