Our first event of Discover Islam Week!
We'll be at Chester Beatty Library for a tour of ''The Islamic Collection''. Meet at 1pm at the prayer room or meet at the Library at 1.50pm.
''The Islamic Collections are amongst the finest in existence and are internationally renowned for the overall high quality and scope of the material.
The manuscripts that comprise the collections range in date from the eighth century to the early years of the twentieth century.
They derive primarily - though not exclusively - from the Arab world, Iran, Turkey and India, and include some of the greatest documents of Islamic art and culture.
Together they illustrate in exquisite form and detail the history and development of all aspects of the Islamic book: calligraphy, illumination, miniature painting and bookbinding.''
It's a two euro entry, spaces are limited! Register here in advance!
