Special Collections

Comprising 19 categries and some 290 manuscripts in all, the special collections have some of the most important items in the Schoyen Collection. The manuscripts presented here include fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls. But even these are pre-dated by some of the incantation tablets in the Magical colleciton. There are manuscripts on Law, Mathematics and Extinct and Living Relgions, and much more of cultural and historical importance.
