Today’s #TimelineTuesday features an early ninth century fragment of Gregory the Great’s homilies on the Gospels, most likely produced in what is now Germany. The striking highlighted initials of yellow, orange, and green are evidence of the insular influence in monasteries founded by Irish missionaries to the continent. The text, originally written in the late sixth and early seventh centuries, was a must-have for monasteries of such insular founding. #undertheinfluence #medievalmanuscript #highlights #irishinitials #fromthescriptorium #rarebooks #fragments #historyofthebook #specialcollections #iglibraries #librariesofinstagram #iulillylibrary #btownmuseums

For today’s #TimelineTuesday, we travel to East Asia with the Hyakumanto Dhāraṇī. In 764 the Japanese Empress Shotoku (718-770) ordered one million copies of select Buddhist dhāranī, or invocations, to be printed and then housed in one million small pagodas. Meant to commemorate and offer thanks for the suppression of a rebellion, it also happens to be an early example of woodblock printing and one of the oldest printed texts in the world! #pagodasutra #oneinamillion #imperialorders #historyofthebook #thebookinJapan #rarebooks #iulillylibrary #specialcollections #iglibraries #librariesofinstagram #btownmuseums

For #ReadaBookDay Isabel and Woodrow are enjoying I, Robot: Three Laws of Robotics, a brilliant (and adorable) miniature book designed and published by Jan and Jarmila Sobota in 2007. It includes the Three Laws originally introduced in Isaac Asimov's 1942 story "Runaround." Woodrow is our resident robot - and also a mechanical puzzle from Jerry Slocum's collection. Happy reading! #robotliteracy #irobot #miniaturebooks #mechanicalpuzzles #jerryslocum #rarebooks #specialcollections #iglibraries #librariesofinstagram #iulillylibrary #btownmuseums

#WorkoftheWeek: Seated Figure. #Teotihuacan culture, #Mexico
Classic period, 200–650
Aragonite
H. 10 ½ in. (26.7 cm)
Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art, Raymond and Laura Wielgus Collection, 76.8 An urban center with an estimated population of over 125,000 in AD 600, Teotihuacan, which lies about twenty-five miles northeast of Mexico City, was the sixth largest city in the world at that time. In terms of visual expression, Teotihuacan’s grandest achievement was its architecture; but this figure, a rare type in the Teotihuacan corpus, is a beautiful example on a more intimate scale that conveys the core Teotihuacan values of simplicity and understatement. Carved from stone and austere in form and decoration, the figure reflects the self-sacrifice, organization, and even rigidity that were characteristic of the great metropolis of Teotihuacan. #art #sculpture #museum #btownmuseums

In what became known as Macedonia's "Colorful Revolution," citizens used paint to deface buildings & monuments in protest against perceived government corruption.
