Imagineear gets Biblical at Chester Beatty

The Chester Beatty Museum in Dublin, Ireland recently opened its fascinating temporary exhibition, First Fragments: Biblical Papyrus from Roman Egypt.

First Fragments focusses on the internationally important collection of manuscripts known as the Chester Beatty Biblical Papyri.

Chester Beatty were looking for an agency to script edit, provide Arabic translations, studio record and post produce an English and Arabic audio production for this highliy anticipated exhibition of ancient pages, dating from the 2nd to 4th century AD.

Having successfully fulfilled tender criteria, Imagineear set to work producing an extensive audio guide in just over one month, testament to our efficiency, flexibility and collaborative approach.

We were able to sympathetically edit the existing Chester Beatty script, optimising it for audio guide format and provided translation services for Arabic through our extensive network of language translators. 

The end result is a hugely informative audio guide, available in both English and Arabic, which delves into the past and reveals the fragmented histories of these ancient books’ histories through the lens of scribes and bookbinders, authors and readers, scholars and collectors throughout the centuries.

“The Chester Beatty is a world renowned museum and we are proud to have been chosen to provide the audio content for this important exhibition.” said Emma Thompson, Senior Account Manager, Imagineear.

“It was a delight to collaborate with Dr Jill Unkel, the exhibition curator, and welcome Chester Beatty to our portfolio of Irish clients.”

"We were delighted to work with Imagineear and are thrilled with the resulting audio tour."
