A lecture-conference related to the current "Verbum Domini" exhibition in St Peter's Square takes place at the nearby Istituto Patristico Augustinianum, Via Paolo VI 25, on Friday 30 March.
Among the leading international scholars speaking at the event are Scot McKendrick from the British Library; Christopher de Hamel from Corpus Christi College, Oxford; Emanuel Tov of Tel Aviv University; and Scott Carroll, director of the Green Collection - the world's largest private collection of rare biblical texts and artifacts.
Verbum Domini is the result of collaboration between the Vatican Museum and the Green Collection, and celebrates the common biblical history shared by Roman Catholics, Protestants, Jews and Orthodox Christians. The exhibition unites for the first time more than 150 of the world's rarest biblical texts and artifacts.
