Reel Religion: the Bible, movies, and the Blackfriars Gallery movie poster collection, a “Wise Habits” event

Thursday, October 21st 2021, 5:30pm to 6:30pm
Online Event, 2400 Ridge Rd Berkeley, CA 94709

In support of the mission of the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology, preservation efforts are underway to ensure that this rare Blackfriars Gallery collection of biblical posters can be used to enrich the ongoing conversation on the role of religion, cinema, and faith in contemporary culture.

Blackfriars Gallery is proud to have one of the largest collections of first-edition, vintage, lobby, and kiosk posters, along with ephemera from movies related to Biblical themes. The fruit of a decades-long endeavor by Michael Morris, OP (+2016), this collection has exhibited at both the national and international museums and university campuses. 

Fr. Chris Renz, OP, Director of the Blackfriars Gallery, will host Professors Richard Lindsay and Ryan Parker, GTU alumni and former students of the late Fr. Michael Morris, OP, in a discussion about the posters and the many facets of this project
