Amongst the vast holdings of the Bodleian Library,

08. BodleianAmongst the vast holdings of the Bodleian Library, founded in 1602, are four original copies of the Magna Carta. In 1692, the library acquired Maimonides autographed final copy of his greatest work – the Mishne Torah. The manuscript is signed by Maimonides as follows: “It has been corrected from my own book. I am Moses son of Rabbi Maimon of blessed memory.” In 2010, Ardon Bar-Hama digitized this manuscript as well as the 25,000 fragments from the Cairo Genizah. Both projects were funded by George Blumenthal.
