Daily Gleanings: Sacred Texts (28 October 2019)

The British Library has assembled a web portal, Discovering Sacred Texts, which “provides access to the richness and diversity of the texts from some of the world’s greatest faiths.”

Some of the links under the Judaism and Christianity sections will open full-text digitizations of manuscripts in the library’s catalog. One example is the text of Genesis below from a 17th-century Torah scroll.


Some of the links above may be “affiliate links.” If you make a purchase or sign up for a service through one of these links, I may receive a small commission from the seller. This process involves no additional cost to you and helps defray the costs of making content like this available. For more information, please see these affiliate disclosures.
