LOWFI Holyland Bible Exhibition tour this Saturday! July 12 @ 3pm!

The League of Western Fortean Intermediatists (L.O.W.F.I) invites you to join us on a trip to the

HOLYLAND BIBLE EXHIBITION
Saturday, July 12 @ 3pm
2215 Lake View Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90039
(323) 664-3162

We have been invited to Holyland Bible Exhibition, an absolutely unique and bizarre repository of Biblical knowledge, this Saturday. Betty, the caretaker and guide of the property will give us a talk on the Bible and the old Testament, complete with Paul Laffoley-style charts and diagrams from the 1930s, a tour of the rooms full of antiquities gathered by founder A.J. Futterer (who was the real-life inspiration for Indy's adventures in The Raiders of the Lost Ark), perhaps punch and cookies, and a visit to one of the most interesting gift shops this side of Jerusalem.

The Holyland Exhibition was built in the late 1920s as an educational center and museum; the two-story complex houses an incredible collection of Egyptian, middle Eastern and Biblical items. The Bible Art and Archaeology Room has stones, pottery and other items from Nazareth, Bethlehem and the Jordan River. Travel back in time with us and brush up on your ancient history, religious studies, geography and archaeology!

Yours in Fort,
