Religious Change & Print features numerous fine examples of printed images and texts, including a leaf from the Gutenberg Bible. We invite you to join us for this upcoming tour, where we will lead you through the extraordinary items of printing history featured in this exhibition.

This tour is part of Religious Change, 1450 - 1700, a multidisciplinary project exploring how religion and print made the medieval world modern. The project is generously supported by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
