Call me old fashioned, but I still call them steps. I was photographing another set of steps by the parking garage when a couple of young men stepped into the picture and posed. They were great models. The Alumni Chapel is always beautiful, but it’s especially lovely at night.
We were at UNM because the Institute for Medieval Studies lecture series started tonight. This year’s series is entitled “Medieval Masterpieces”. Tonight’s lecture was by Christopher de Hamel from Corpus Christi, Cambridge on 12th century giant illuminated bibles. His lecture was outstanding. I encourage anyone in the Albuquerque area to attend the the rest of the lectures. Tomorrow evening the two lectures are Boethius’s “Consolation of Philosophy” by Philip Edwards, Middle Tennessee State University at 5:15, and The Bayeux Tapestry, by Martin F Foys, Drew University at 7:15. On Wednesday the lectures are on Beowulf and “Illuminated Animals and God in Medieval England.” On Thursday, there is a medieval music concert followed by a lecture on Gislebertus of Autun. The lectures are in Woodward Hall 101 and the concert is in Keller Hall, both at UNM.
