Illuminated Islamic Manuscripts: A Selection of New Acquisitions at Yale University

Monday, June 25, 2007 to Saturday, August 25, 2007

Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library

Islamic manuscripts uniquely mirror the civilization that produced them. The entire gamut of learning can be seen in these pages, from grammar, literature, and poetry to theology, astronomy, mathematics, and medicine. The Islamic manuscript shows not only the beauty and variety of Islamic calligraphy, illuminations, and paintings, but also the extreme care various artisans took in penmanship, binding, and papermaking. These colorful illuminations and miniatures transcend time and place, providing a window into pre-twentieth-century Islamic culture. [ca. 35 items]
