New Exhibit: Missionary Journeys

Prior to the advent of modern transportation, missionaries faced journeys of enormous peril and adventure as they sought to spread the gospel. Using documentation from the Divinity Library’s renowned Day Missions collection, this exhibit provides glimpses into the stories of several individuals who traveled to the Middle East, Oceania, China, and elsewhere.

Corpus Augustinianum Gissense (CAG)

The library now has online access to the Corpus Augustinianum Gissense (CAG), a database of the writings in Latin of Saint Augustine, Bishop of Hippo, 354-430. This corpus, consisting of over five million words, is of immense value to scholars of classical literature, philosophy, theology and biblical studies. The CAG-online also provides access to a bibliographic database of primary and secondary literature comprising more than 33,000 records.
