Visit to a collection: Highlights from the Lawrence J. Schoenberg Collection at the University of Pennsylvania
The Lawrence J. Schoenberg Collection includes nearly 300 manuscripts and documents ranging in date from ca. 1900BC to the twentieth century, with particular focus on the eras of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.

With its emphasis on the history of science and the transmission of knowledge across time and geography, the Lawrence J. Schoenberg Collection at the University of Pennsylvania Libraries brings together many of the great scientific and philosophical traditions of the ancient and medieval worlds. Documenting the extraordinary achievements of scholars, philosophers and scientists active in pre-modern Europe, Africa and Asia, the collection illuminates the foundations of our shared intellectual heritage.

Lynn Ransom, Curator of Programs at the Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies (SIMS) and Board of Directors member of The Islamic Manuscript Association, and Nicholas Herman, Lawrence J. Schoenberg Curator of Manuscripts, will present highlights of the Schoenberg Collection’s Islamicate manuscripts and the various ways in which SIMS encourages and engages scholars around the world in support of research involving the collection.
