2022 Lecture Information

The 2022 Chi Rho speaker will be Jonathan Homrighausen discussing the ethics and art of the Saint John's Bible. The Lectures will be at Central Lutheran Church, November 11-13, 2022

Jonathan Homrighausen is a doctoral student in Hebrew Bible at Duke University, where he is writing a dissertation on the reception history of Esther in visual art—specifically the tradition of the decorated megillah Esther. He is the author of Illuminating Justice: The Ethical Imagination of The Saint John’s Bible (Liturgical Press, 2018), which explores the call to social ethics in The Saint John’s Bible, the first major handwritten and hand-illuminated Christian Bible since the invention of the printing press.
