with Jessica Baldwin, Head of Collections and Jill Unkel, Curator of Western Collections, Chester Beatty Library
Founded in Persia in the 3rd century, Manichaeism was a religion practiced widely in the Roman Empire but gone by the 13th century. This talk will focus on the complicated history of Chester Beatty’s Manichaean papyrus codices dated to the 4th century and written in Coptic.
Join the museum’s expert curators as they trace their origins and uncover the remarkable and complex conservation history of these priceless scripts.
Thursday 28th September at 1.10 pm, Chester Beatty Library, Dublin Castle
