During the academic year, HMML hosted two recipients of the Spring 2014 Dietrich Reinhart, OSB, Fellowship in Eastern Christian Manuscript Studies. Each presented a public lecture related to their studies. Learn more about each here, and watch their talks below. The lectures were well-attended on the campus of Saint John's University.
In early January, HMML staff welcomed two fellowship recipients who will stay on the Saint John's University campus as resident scholars through April 2014. Each has selected a specific area of focus for their research, which our extensive digital collections will significantly support.
It continues to be a pleasure hosting scholars and researchers from around the world at the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library. Visit our Scholar Opportunities page for information on these and other fellowships and scholarships offered throughout the year.
The Hill Museum & Manuscript Library (HMML) announces the establishment of the Dietrich Reinhart OSB Fellowship in Eastern Christian Manuscript Studies, to be awarded annually for three years beginning with the Academic Year 2013-2014.
