Heather Wacha to Speak at St. Norbert College

Facebook / Tweet

From St. Norbert College, February 6, 2019
by Hailey Barron, , (920)-403-3089

Heather Wacha, postdoctoral fellow in data curation for medieval studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, will present “Exploring the Art of Manuscript and the Prémontré Cartulary” to conclude St. Norbert College’s yearlong celebration of The Saint John's Bible on Tuesday, Feb. 19, at 7 p.m. at the Fort Howard Theater in the F. K. Bemis International Conference Center on the college campus. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Wacha’s research focuses on women’s economic activities during the 12th and 13th centuries in Picardy, France, and incorporates material evidence found in the documents she uses as primary sources, namely charters and cartularies. She has published an article on the cartulary of the Abbey of Prémontré in essays on medieval studies and is currently working on a critical print/digital edition of the same cartulary.
The Saint John’s Bible is the first illuminated, handwritten Bible of monumental size to be commissioned by a Benedictine monastery in more than 500 years. An extension of The Saint John’s Bible, the Heritage Edition is the only full-size, limited, signed and numbered fine-art edition that will ever be produced. About 300 fine-art editions have been placed in religious, arts and academic institutions around the world. The Gospels & Acts volume of the Heritage Edition is on display in Todd Wehr Lobby on St. Norbert College’s campus through March.
