Translating my thoughts into images.

The Bodleian Library

While in Oxford we had a tour of the Bodleian Library. We had a wonderful guide and spent most of our time in the Duke Humfrey’s Library, the oldest reading room at the University of Oxford and ended in the Divinity School. When I was a student, I spent most of my time in the library of the then called Oriental Institute (now the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies). What was called the “New Bodley” and is now the much renovated Weston Library, where many Hebrew, Aramaic, and Syriac manuscripts were held in the Special Collections. However, I often went to the Radcliffe Camera to read and write. It had its own charms and being the History Library often had items I needed to reference. These were almost all taken with my iPhone.
