The Donald Robinson Library has received a generous and significant donation of 16th-18th century books, mostly Protestant theology, from the Latimer Trust in the UK. We are holding an event to showcase the collection, allow people a closer look, and hear expert commentary on their historical and theological significance from our Principal Dr Mark Thompson and Head of Church History Dr Mark Earngey.
Collection highlights include: Erasmus’ Paraphrases of the New Testament printed in 1548, Most fruitfull & learned comentaries of Doctor Peter Martir Vermil Florentine (1564), a 1581 Geneva Bible, Latimer’s Fruitefull Sermons (1635).
