Religious Treasures at Yale

Question:  Where can you find the following: 

- A Gutenberg Bible

- Pages from a Kufic Qur’an

- A Buddhist chapel with a fan-vaulted ceiling

- The original text of “Lift Every Voice and Sing”

- Many other significant and moving religious artifacts from around the world?

The answer is, of course, Yale’s campus!  From the sermon “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” by Jonathan Edwards B.A. 1720, to Thomas More’s personal Book of Hours and a host of treasures between, Yale has a plethora of resources and unique objects from the world’s religious history.

YDS’s Director of Communications Tom Krattenmaker has written a great Huffington Post article detailing a few of the many religious treasures you will find around Yale, in our classrooms, our chapels, our libraries, and our museums.
