Collecting During Covid
This exhibition highlights the Library’s acquisitions during a challenging few years. Recent arrivals build on the Library’s strengths in the fields of devotional literature, topographical writings and the evolution of religious libraries. Highlights include a copy of Quintilian’s Institutiones oratoriae that was once owned by Cardinal Morton, a medieval French book of Hours and a nineteenth century journal of Henry Evington, Bishop of Kyushu, Japan.
In particular, the period of the Reformation is well represented with new items shedding light on the logistics of international diplomacy, the modus operandi of Matthew Hutton, Archbishop of York and the anti-Catholic propaganda that the religious upheaval produced.
The acquisitions range from the fifteenth to the twentieth centuries, many purchased with the assistance of the Friends of Lambeth Palace Library.
The exhibition runs from 11 October to 22 December 2022, 9.30am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. No booking is necessary and there is no charge.
