Sacred Texts

If a trip to the British Library isn't in your plans, don't worry. Their newest exhibit is at your fingertips. Sacred Texts is an online exhibit at the British Library's website.

The online gallery (with zoomable images) and exhibit feature 78 of the world's greatest collection of Jewish, Christian and Muslim holy books: "The rarest and most exquisite sacred books and manuscripts presented and explored, side by side, in a major UK exhibition for the first time..."

The online exhibit's features include videos, slideshows, podcasts and interactive material for schools and students. The site is regularly updated with news, reviews, and blogs about the Sacred exhibition.

Well done!
