BU Library Staff embark on digitizing a valuable rare manuscript

Jenny Baboun-Hodali, Librarian for IT/Digital Services has enlisted the assistance of Sister Rose, Archivist to conserve a rare manuscript long kept in store at the Archives section. The manuscript contains: a) the epistles of Senesius, bishop of Cyrene, circa 370-413 AD; b) excerpts from Thucydides’ “History of the Peloponnessian war,” nos. 1-8. This manuscript dates back approximately to the XVI C.

Pictures below show the intricate and delicate work done by Jenny and Sr. Rose who have put all their time and dedication in order to conserve this old and rare manuscript and prepare it as an electronic resource.
