Exploring the Library

Besides a collection of over 100,000 books and journals, the Lanier Theological Library offers many other objects and resources to explore. From the true-to-size replica of a 6th century Byzantine chapel to an original King James Bible from 1611, a visit to the library will interest almost any person, no matter their background, religion or age.
