Dr. Jeremy Begbie: Classical Music Performance and Lecture
The Cathedral of All Saints is excited to announce a new arts initiative to help people fall in love with God. Cathedral Arts, a mission of The Cathedral of All Saints, welcomes Dr. Jeremy Begbie, founding director of Duke University’s Initiative on Theology and the Arts, for its first major event.
Dr. Begbie’s performance-lecture is titled: “Lamenting and Hoping: How Music Can Mediate the Healing Power of the Gospel.” This event is for clergy, music lovers and all those who seek more of the healing power of sacred scripture in their lives.
Dr. Begbie tours widely as a speaker, specializing in multimedia performance-lectures. A professionally trained musician, he has also performed extensively as a pianist, oboist and conductor. He is an ordained minister in the Church of England as well as a Thomas A. Langford Distinguished Professor in Theology at Duke Divinity School.
The event will be complemented by a display of the Heritage Edition of The St. John’s Bible, the first illuminated Bible commissioned by a Benedictine monastery in 500 years. The Prophets will be on display during Dr. Begbie’s visit, courtesy of St. Peter’s Health Partners, whose mission for 2019 includes presenting The St. John’s Bible which reveals sacred scripture through art.
