GC exhibit features historic Anabaptist costume prints

GOSHEN — An exhibit featuring works from the Paul and Jean Kraybill Collection is on display in Goshen College’s Good Library Art Gallery through Nov. 17, with a reception from 2-4 p.m. Sunday.

The core of the exhibit is a large collection of antique colored engravings that depict Anabaptists in Switzerland, Alsace and the Palatinate from circa 1700 to 1900. The prints were collected in Europe by Paul and Jean Kraybill and given to the Mennonite Historical Library in 2018. Smaller examples of Dutch and Russian Mennonite costumes, a few actual costumes and other contextual objects will also be on display.

Special tribute will be paid to Jean Kraybill, the donor, and to Melvin Gingerich for his research and book, “Mennonite Attire through Four Centuries.”

The colored engravings of costumes have been exhibited in Strasbourg, France; Mennonite World Conference in Winnipeg, Manitoba; and Eastern Mennonite University in Virginia.

The reception is free and open to the public.
