Dr. William Noel, Curator of Manuscripts and Rare Books at the Walters Art Museum, will sign copies of his new book, The Archimedes Codex, at the Judge Robert I. H. Hammerman Memorial Lecture at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 28 at the Evergreen Museum and Library.
5 p.m. Reception and Book Signing
6 p.m. Lecture
Dr. Noel will provide a fascinating look at the 13th-century prayerbook known to conceal the texts of two treaties by Archimedes. Loaned to the museum by a private collector, the hidden texts are slowly being retrieved by conservators and deciphered by scientists and textual scholars.
The Judge Robert I. H. Hammerman Memorial Lecture was established in 2006 as a tribute to Judge Hammermanâ€™s devotion to scholarship and education for the greater Baltimore and Hopkins communities.
