​Lawrence Nees, the H. Fletcher Brown Chair of Humanities and Professor in the Department of Art History, has been invited to present the Kurt Weitzmann Lecture at Princeton University. Dr. Nees will deliver his lecture, “The Princeton Garrett 6 Evangelists Revisited,” on Monday, March 11 at 5:00 pm in 101 McCormick Hall.

The ninth-century miniatures of Christ, Mary and three Evangelists in the Gospel manuscript in the Princeton University collection, Garrett 6, are among the earliest and best-known medieval Greek images in America. This lecture in honor of Kurt Weitzmann puts these images in a broader context beyond Greek manuscripts, considering links with a recently discovered illustrated ninth-century Gospels in Arabic with standing Evangelist portraits at Mt. Sinai, and also with early medieval Gospels manuscripts in Latin, Syriac, Georgian, Armenian, Coptic, and Ge’ez.
