Historic European Anabaptist Costume Prints: The Paul and Jean Kraybill Collection

Exhibit: Sept. 1 - Nov. 17

Public Reception: Sunday, Sept. 8, 2pm to 4pm

The core of this exhibit is a large collection of antique colored engravings that depict Anabaptists in Switzerland, Alsace and the Palatinate from c. 1700 to 1900. The prints were collected in Europe by Paul and Jean Kraybill and given to the Mennonite Historical Library in 2018. Also, smaller displays of Dutch and Russian Mennonite costumes, a few actual costumes and other contextual objects. Special tribute will be paid to Jean Kraybill, the donor, and to Melvin Gingerich (1902-75) for his research and book, Mennonite Attire through Four Centuries (1970).

The reception and exhibit are free and open to the public.

Call 574.535.7418 for group visits or library hours.

Sponsored by the Mennonite-Amish Museum committee at Goshen College.
