‘Manifold Greatness’ Exhibition Leads To Rhodes Discoveries
Publication Date: 1/17/2012
The “Manifold Greatness” exhibition Rhodes recently hosted has helped inspire the Barret Library to recognize its own great and manifold holdings, according to Scott Newstok, Associate Professor of English.
On the Manifold Greatness Blog, Newstok writes: “Our archivists Bill Short and Elizabeth Gates realized that we hold copies of a series of facsimile reproductions of leaves from early English Bibles, produced in 1935 by the American Bible Society.”
Archivists also discovered that decades ago Rhodes had acquired a collection of mounted pages from various biblical translations, ranging from an 1121 Armenian version to a 1665 Algonquin Bible. These materials, in addition to a 1617 KJV and a 1589 Geneva translation, all remain on display in Barret until the end of the month of January.
