Medieval Furniture of the Maciejowski Bible

Castlerock Museum

The Maciejowski Bible (also known as the Morgan Bible or the Crusader’s Bible) is a picture bible created mid 13th century. It contains 92 full pages depicting biblical scenes with the characters and events drawn as if they were contemporary to the artisans. The book has been well studied as evidence for 13th century clothing, weapons, armor, and customs of behavior.

Derek Olson, a woodworker, author, and medieval enthusiast, decided to look at the Bible as a source for medieval furniture. He has been studying and building the tables, chairs, beds, cradles, and more shown in its pages. Join him to see several of the pieces he’s completed and hear him talk about the history of the Bible, the process of creating these pieces from the past, and the lessons learned along the way.

Admission is $6 for adults and $4 for students, children four and under are free. Museum members receive a 50% discount. Seating is limited. Registrations are not required but appreciated. The museum will open at 1:00pm for visitors that would like to see the exhibits beforehand. Contact the museum at 608-685-4231 or info@castlerockmuseum.com for more details.
