Magis21-Papyrus

Word on Papyrus experiment

This experiment with the 'Society and Culture' character was one of 11 choices for the participants of Magis Europe 2021.

The Magis experiment “Word on Papyrus” offers an opportunity to enter the Biblical world through its ancient culture of writing. During a series of workshops participants will create their own sheets of papyrus and they will be instructed how to write on them in the style of the oldest New Testament manuscripts. Such a skill allows to contemplate the beauty of God’s Word and leaves space for a deeper communication. The location of the experiment at the Jesuit Novitiate House in Ružomberok will help us to create the atmosphere of a friendly community and to enjoy the lovely town in the central Slovakia. The scribal activities will be accompanied by various trips, walking in nature, playing, praying, and exploring the spiritual dimensions of our life.
