Chief curator Kory Rogers will decipher the hidden meanings behind the fantastical beasts and complex religious iconography depicted on Shelburne Museum’s enigmatic Millerite banner made in the early 1840s. Measuring nearly 22 feet long and four feet tall, the large banner illustrates preacher William Miller’s complicated interpretation of The biblical Book of Revelations, which he read as signs that helped him calculate the exact date(s) of the apocalypse between 1843-44.
