Date: 7th July - 11th July 2011
Location: The Senate Room

For the Society of Biblical Literature’s International meeting organised by Divinity's Professor Kristin de Troyer and attended by over 850 biblical scholars, Special Collections displayed a selection of books published by significant characters from the teaching of Divinity in St Andrews over 600 years.

Two workshops were run by members of Special Collections staff, where a specially chosen selection of materials were laid out a for delegates to look through, which produced some very interesting conversations. The star of the show was undoubtedly a Hebrew Scroll, a partial Torah probably of German origin, probably 17th century.
