OCU Professors Host Lecture to Accompany Museum Exhibit

Professors from the Wimberly School of Religion at Oklahoma City University will participate in a lecture series at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art for its Passages exhibit.

The exhibit celebrates the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible. It includes relics and materials relating to the production of the earliest Bibles since the Old Testament was written by Jewish scribes.

The Aug. 9 lecture will feature Gordon Campbell, a professor of Renaissance studies at the University of Leicester in England. Sharon Betsworth, OCU professor and director of the Wimberly School of Religion, will give a pre-lecture welcome, and Lisa Wolfe, professor and endowed chairwoman of Hebrew Bible at OCU, will present a response after the lecture. All tickets to the lecture have been sold.

The OCU representatives, including President Robert and First Lady Jan Henry, will take part in a dinner and special tour of the exhibit.
