November 10, 2020 - January 10, 2021
This fully illustrated exhibit describes a wide selection of manuscripts from our collections that contain texts of the three Abrahamic faiths: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. It includes extraordinary jewels of a centuries-long textual and artistic tradition, such as a tenth-century manuscript of the Pentateuch, papyrus leaves with the earliest known copy of the Epistles of St. Paul, and a selection of exquisitely illuminated manuscripts of the Qur'an.
While the exhibit is being featured through January 10, our online exhibits are available indefinitely.
Library events are free and open to the public, and we are committed to making them accessible to attendees. If you anticipate needing accommodations to participate, please notify the listed contact with as much notice as possible.
