8 December 2009 - 3 May 2010. The winter exhibition at the Bodleian draws on the library's extensive Hebrew archive which is one of the largest and most important collections of Hebrew manuscripts in the world. This exhibition relates the fascinating story of how Jews, Christians and Muslims have all contributed to the development of the book. Through cultural collaboration, social interaction and religious toleration during the Middle Ages, the exhibition illustrates how this pooling of knowledge combined to create the revolutionary concept of the printed book. The Bodleian Library is the central research library at the University of Oxford.
