"Chester Beatty Library" Chester Beatty Library Tip by Deefstes

Chester Beatty Library, Dublin: 18 reviews and 19 photos

  The oldest known fragments of the New Testament
by Deefstes

Now here's a pretty damn impressive library for you - unlike any library you've ever seen in your life. Realistically it's more a museum than a library really.

Sir Alfred Chester Beatty donated his immaculate collection of manuscripts and literature from all over the world to Dublin where it is now displayed in this amazing library. Ancient Christian, Islamic, Buddhist and just about any religious manuscript you can think of can be found there.

It's truly awesome and worth every minute of your time.
