Bugs in the Bible: An Intertextual Approach

From traditional Christian crosses to Jewish menorahs, from rainbow patterns to butterfly wings, The Saint John’s Bible stands as a fine example of intertextuality with visual leitmotifs running through its pages, connecting one book and story to another.

Michael Patella, the chair of the Committee on Illumination and Text for the Bible, will explore the meaning of these leitmotifs and the role they play in the composition of The Saint John’s Bible itself.

UWaterloo Chamber Choir

In celebration of Canada’s 150th, we have chosen music written by Canadian composers and inspired by the country’s landscape and wildlife, and by the various cultural heritages of its indigenous and immigrant peoples.  You will hear both tender and rollicking versions of Newfoundland and prairie folksongs, along with gentle and glorious music by our established and emerging composers, inspired by their own cultural heritages and by their Canadian home.  We even tip our hat to what should be our national bird (sorry, Gray Jay) --  the mosquito!
