Exploring library archives

Hebrew Bible and Ancient Israel

In the spring 2016, the students studying Hebrew Bible from the Vanderbilt University Graduate Department of Religion visited Princeton, New Jersey to explore the Princeton Theological Seminary library archives. Below are pictures of some beautiful old bibles, along with the Bible Dietrich Bonhoeffer used when teaching in secret to avoid Nazi imprisonment. It was a wonderful trip, and we look forward to sharing more about our program in the future!

The trip went exceptionally well, and the Hebrew Bible cohort consulted a variety of texts and academic tools. Work completed on this trip will contribute to future projects for these Vanderbilt students, both in and out of the classroom. We are working to continue the active and vibrant tradition of biblical scholarship Vanderbilt has long been known for; we look forward to sharing what comes next!
