research visit to Cambridge University Library

In the coming week I will be practically ‘living’  in the manuscript reading room of Cambridge University Library. For this leg of the research project, the archives of the British and Foreign Bible Society will be investigated in search of contextual information on Bible translations that were printed in the Mongolian script.

Not only will original copies of these publications and the utilized Mongolian printing types be studied, also the correspondence of the translators, typesetters and printers, the minutes and reports of the Bible societies and other involved participants will be examined.

The next couple of days will take me back to the early nineteenth century, into the then undiscovered regions of Siberia.
