Jerusalem: great success of the exhibition “The reading device” at the Library of the Custody of the Holy Land

A great success of the exhibition “The reading device” of the Library of the Custody of the Holy Land. From the 3rd to the 5th of November about 250 visitors have passed by. The exhibit was organized within the project Books, bridges of peace, supported by the Association pro Terra Sancta.

“We chose to show the history of the packing of books, their clothing through history. As a matter of fact the book structure was the one granting its use as a tool meaning a device for transcription, conservation and reading”, said professor Edoardo Barbieri (Catholic University of Milan), who is one of the organizers.

The exhibit catalogue about the 40 manuscripts is now available online on the Library website and on the Italian website Academia.edu.
