Cover of Volume 9 of Lucifer

The Religion and Graphica Collection was created in 2009 by A. David Lewis and the Humanities Foundation of Boston University.  The collection contains a variety of religious-themed materials ranging from the classic Maus novels of Art Spiegelman to the irreverent Battle Pope novels of Robert Kirkman and company.  Most of the collection can be found in the Oversized Stacks near the bound periodicals. Others are located in the Open Stacks or behind the Circulation Desk. Because of genre, all are classed with call numbers that begin PN. Please ask for assistance if you cannot locate an item.

Please use BU Libraries Search to locate an  item in our collections and find its availability.
