At the time of writing, we know of no national library or any library or museum have specifically collected manuscripts representing the world's religions, both extinct and living religions, over 5000 years. The manuscripts presented here are a unique representation of the breadth of religious expressions. The world's major religions are not only given depth of historical context, less widely known extinct and indeed modern religions are also represented - as indeed is magic.
