From Cairo to the Cloud

On Monday, November 18th at 7 pm in Donahue Auditorium, the TRS and the Tuohy Chair in Interreligious Studies will present From Cairo to the Cloud.

The documentary tells the story of the Cairo Geniza — a massive and mind bogglingly diverse trove of medieval manuscripts containing everything from religious texts and legal documents to love letters and children’s drawings — from its discovery in the 19th C. to the ongoing work of restoring and archiving the documents digitally.

Dr. Noah Bickart, the Director of the Tuohy Chair, who appears in the film, will introduce it and answers questions afterward.
