The new special exhibition at the Papyrus Museum at the Austrian National Library tells of the long journeys made by knowledge: antique papyri and mediaeval manuscripts document the often arduous but exciting routes that texts have travelled over many centuries.

The exhibits paint an impressive picture of how knowledge was recorded, conveyed and shared before the invention of printing. Passed on and preserved across linguistic and religious borders, some of these ancient texts ultimately became integral parts of our own educational canon so that they are still very relevant today.
