500 Years of Years of Treasures
from Oxford

Corpus Christi College, one of the oldest of the 38 self-governing colleges at the modern University of Oxford, is a repository of extraordinary treasures, few of which have been seen by the public. To mark its 500th anniversary, a selection of 50 manuscripts and early printed books from its celebrated Library, is being brought to the United States for the first time. The artifacts range in date from the 10th to the 17th centuries and are presented in three languages--Latin, Greek and Hebrew. See this exhibit at the Folger Shakespeare Library through April 30.
