The tale of Arthur the Theologian

Arthur the Theologian and his encounter with Burns Library’s copy of the Douai Bible, the first Modern English bible, gained some modest fame in 2013 thanks to a post in the Burns Library’s blog. Arthur the Theologian returned to the spotlight this summer when artwork from Burns Library Conservator Barbara Adams Hebard was featured in the Annual Print and Paper Exchange exhibit from the New England Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers. Hebard’s whimsical collage, titled “A Transformed Arthur the Theologian is greeted by St. Peter at the Gate of Heaven,” brings the tale of Arthur the Theologian to its conclusion.
