Join us in The Rare Book & Manuscript Library for our spring exhibition, “Divine Madness,” curated by Dr. Cait Coker, Siobhan McKissic, Ruthann E. Miller & Ana D. Rodriguez.

What are the limits of possibility? How far can humans go, physically and intellectually? And what are they prepared to do to get what they want?

These are only a few of the questions that “Divine Madness” attempts to answer. Drawing on texts ancient and modern, the topics examined have numerous intersections geographically, historically, and philosophically. This exhibit is a collaborative exploration of the inner and outer lives of people as reflected in the expansive collections at the RBML.
