Books of Hours
Gallery | PPT | PDF
This exhibition of medieval Books of Hours offers an insight into the devotional practices of wealthy Christians, with the education to read and the finances to afford such a work of art. Each of the pages in the exhibition features detailed hand crafted art and calligraphy, and invites us to reflect on the place of quietness in busy lives.
The exhibition includes (1) MSS before the printing press, including a papyrus fragment from the first century;(2) Devotional works and music texts; (3) Printed documents and other historical materials; (4) Coins, icons and other items.
Stamps, coins and medals illustrate the life of Albert Schweitzer, the famous medical missionary and Nobel Peace Prize recipient. The exhibits include letters hand-written by Schweitzer.
