Chester Beatty Library :: Shared Description

The Chester Beatty Library was established in 1950, to house the collections of mining magnate, Sir Alfred Chester Beatty. The present library, in the grounds of Dublin Castle, opened in 2000, the 125th anniversary of Beatty's birth and was named European Museum of the Year in 2002.
The Library's collections are displayed in two collections: "Sacred Traditions" and "Artistic Traditions". Both displays exhibit manuscripts, miniature paintings, prints, drawings, rare books and some decorative arts from the Islamic, East Asian and Western Collections. The Library is one of the premier sources for scholarship in both the Old and New Testaments and is home to one of the most significant collections of Islamic and Far Eastern artefacts. The museum contains a number of priceless objects, including one of the surviving volumes of the first illustrated Life of the Prophet and the Gospel of Mani.
