"I concluded at the last to set up my staff at the library door in Oxon; being thoroughly persuaded, that in my solitude, and surcease from the Commonwealth affairs, I could not busy myself to better purpose, than by reducing that place, which then in every part lay ruined and waste, to the public use of students..."

Sir Thomas Bodley ~ 1598

 

Thanks for the visits, comments and faves !!

 

Have a wonderful weekend, my friends !!

  

My days among the Dead are past;

Around me I behold,

Where'er these casual eyes are cast,

The mighty minds of old;

My never-failing friends are they,

With whom I converse day by day.

My days among the Dead are past;

Around me I behold,

Where'er these casual eyes are cast,

The mighty minds of old;

My never-failing friends are they,

With whom I converse day by day.

The Library Ets Haim, also called Livraria Montezinos, which is both a museum and a library, is part of the specialized educational and research institute of the Portuguese-Jewish Seminary Ets Haim (Tree of Life). (עץ חיים)

The library collections contain 30,000 printed works (from 1484 to the present day) and 500 manuscripts (from 1282 to the twentieth century). The specialization and theme focus mainly on the humanities: all aspects of Jewish studies and cultural history, and, in line with the humanist ideals of Northern Europe, the collections also reflect the universality of the human spirit, science and skills.

The collections are maintained at the Portuguese Synagogue complex in Amsterdam - one of the one hundred most important Dutch monuments - where they have been since the complex was built in 1675.

 

The library was added to UNESCO's Memory of the World Register in 2003.

  

=================

 

Bibliotheek Ets Haim bezit een grote en rijke collectie op het gebied van het 17e- en 18e-eeuwse jodendom en maakt al bijna 400 jaar onderdeel uit van het Amsterdamse culturele erfgoed. De collectie bestaat uit circa 560 handschriften (van 1282 tot de 19e eeuw) en circa 30.000 gedrukte werken in meer dan 20 talen, waarvan Hebreeuws (met ongeveer 50% van de titels) de belangrijkste is.

 

Ets Haim is de oudste nog functionerende joodse bibliotheek ter wereld. De bibliotheek is in 1616 opgericht en bevindt zich sinds 1675 op de huidige locatie in het prachtige complex van de Portugese Synagoge in Amsterdam. Sinds David Montezinos, de toenmalige bibliothecaris, in 1889 zijn persoonlijke verzameling handschriften, boeken en grafieken aan de bibliotheek schonk, luidt de naam Bibliotheek Ets Haim – Livraria Montezinos.

 

In 2003 werd de collectie van Bibliotheek Ets Haim - Livraria Montezinos op de UNESCO-lijst van het Geheugen van de Wereld geplaatst.

This room in the Duomo di Siena in Tuscany. It houses precious illuminated choir books and frescoes painted by the Umbrian Bernardino di Betto. He painted this cycle of frescoes around the library between 1502 and 1507.

 

Each scene is explained in Latin by the text below. They depict ten remarkable events from the secular and religious career of pope Pius II, first as a high prelate, then bishop, a cardinal and ultimately pope.

Outside our local library there are benches and a table where we used to sit. Sadly the library remains closed, and the visits to collect and return books are no more. There's a sense of optimism in the bright colours .... missing now! We hope that our library will open again ... one day!
