We are delighted to announce that registration is now open for “Opening the Sacred Text: Meaning, Materiality, Historiography.” Bringing together scholars from around the world, we will explore the decorative frontispieces and so-called carpet pages that are a remarkable feature of manuscripts from diverse cultures, including Islam, Judaism and Christianity.

The conference will be online, via Zoom, and we’ll send out a Zoom link to registered participants nearer the time.

The conference will run over three days (Monday 21 February 2022 – Wednesday 23 February 2022), with a 2pm GMT start each day. We hope that the timing and the online format will make the conference accessible to as many people as possible.

Very much looking forward to seeing you there,
Stewart J. Brookes and Julie Harris
