Special Collections class exhibits

Oct 25, 2017

Special Collections often collaborates with faculty members to arrange class exhibits of Special Collections material, especially for various classes in the church history department at Princeton Theological Seminary.

For example, Church History Professor Paul Rorem brought his students to the library to examine items from Special Collections including Geez-language manuscripts from Ethiopia. During the visit, the class also discussed the ministry and studies of another champion for social justice, His Holiness Abune Paulos.

Similarly, Professor Kathleen McVey's Syriac Christianity and the Rise of Islam class visited Special Collections to examine East Syriac liturgical manuscripts and codices, many of which came to the Seminary from the Mission Library of Urmia in northwest Iran.
