Who Says You Can’t Go Medieval in Philadelphia?

June 19, 2015

Who says you can’t go medieval in Philadelphia? Last Saturday, I took our World Christian History II class on a medieval field trip to the City of Brotherly Love.

Medieval Church Philly

The field trip was dedicated to all things medieval.

First, the class received a guided tour of medieval manuscripts at the Free Library of Museum. All writings in the Middle Ages — including the Bible, of course — were painstakingly written by hand, often by monks. Many of these manuscripts were illuminated with beautiful calligraphy, bright colors, and stunning illustrations. Students saw Bibles and other Christian writings that were copied by hand from around the 1100s to the 1600s.
