Harkness Gospels, Xanten Tanakh, Turkish Qur’an

The online portion of the┬áNew York Public Library’s Three Faiths exhibition includes images of the Harkness Gospels of Landevennec, Brittany, in Latin; the Xanten Tanakh of the Lower Rhineland, scribed by Joseph ben Kalonymus; and a fourteenth century Turkish Qur’an signed by Husam al-Faqir al-Mawlavi, disciple of Jalal al-Din Rumi. (Did I mention they’re all beautiful in a way books aren’t anymore?) Check out the photographic reproductions here.

      Hey, thanks Kyle. That Harkness stuff is fascinating–I’m gonna get myself over to the NYPL sometime this week.
