We are pleased to announce the launching of a new online exhibit: "Sacred Hands." This virtual display highlights an extraordinary selection of manuscripts containing the sacred texts of the three Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. It includes manuscripts that are highly treasured for their textual and artistic value, such as a tenth-century Torah, the earliest known papyrus of St. Paul's Epistles, early illuminated Byzantine manuscripts of the Four Gospels, and a wide selection of manuscripts containing the Qur'an. Click here to access the exhibit!
Our online exhibit was partly inspired by a previous exhibition of the same name held in the Audubon Room of the Hatcher Library in January-March 2012. Curated by Pablo Alvarez, Evyn Kropf, and Arthur Verhoogt, a printed catalog of that exhibition was fully digitized and made available online.
