Ariel Sabar, Veritas: A Harvard Professor, a Con Man and the Gospel of Jesus's Wife  - In 2012, Dr. Karen King, a star religion professor at Harvard, announced a breathtaking discovery just steps from the Vatican: she’d found an ancient scrap of papyrus in which Jesus calls Mary Magdalene “my wife.” The mysterious manuscript, which King provocatively titled “The Gospel of Jesus’s Wife,” had the power to topple the Roman Catholic Church. It threatened not just the all-male priesthood, but centuries of sacred teachings on marriage, sex, and women’s leadership, much of it premised on the hallowed tradition of a celibate Jesus. Award-winning journalist Ariel Sabar covered King’s announcement in Rome but left with a question that no one seemed able to answer: Where in the world did this history-making papyrus come from? Sabar’s dogged sleuthing led from the halls of Harvard Divinity School to the former headquarters of the East German Stasi before landing on the trail of a Florida man with an unbelievable past. Could a motorcycle-riding pornographer with a fake Egyptology degree and a prophetess wife have set in motion one of the greatest hoaxes of the century? A propulsive tale laced with twists and trapdoors, Veritas is an exhilarating, globe-straddling detective story about an Ivy League historian and a college dropout—and how they worked together to pass off an audacious forgery as a long-lost piece of the Bible. Nominated for the Edgar Award for best True Crime book of the year Finalist for the Investigative Reporters and Editors Book Award Ariel Sabar is an award-winning journalist whose work has appeared in The Atlantic, The New York Times, Harper's Magazine, The Washington Post, and many other publications. He is the author of My Father's Paradise: A Son's Search for His Jewish Past in Kurdish Iraq, which won the National Book Critics Circle Award.

Virtual Exhibition: Sophia Munic: I Am (Still) Here for You  - Live online August 6th at 6PM. Make.shift’s virtual gallery is proud to present Sophia Munic’s "I Am (Still) Here for You". "I Am (Still) Here for You" is an ongoing project of three sculptures representative of 'hugs' and that were given to four participants to film themselves playing with, materializing in three separate short video clips. This project examines how our relationship to physical touch has changed during the covid pandemic, how we are soft with ourselves and others, and how we find comfort amidst how covid 19 limits our ability to (physically) connect to others.
