Special collections, facilities, museums (etc.) on campus and/or nearby: Semitics/Institute for Christian Oriental Research: manuscripts, papyri, ostraka, pottery, coins (https://libraries.catholic.edu/special-collections/semitics-icor-library/index.html). Institute for the Study of Eastern Christianity (https://trs.catholic.edu/faculty-and-research/institutes/eastern-christian-studies/index.html). Center for Medieval and Byzantine Studies.(https://arts-sciences.catholic.edu/academics/interdisciplinary/mbs/index.html)

The Institute of Christian Oriental Research (ICOR) houses one of the world’s premiere research collections for the study of the Christian Near East. The ICOR collection includes more than 50,000 catalogued volumes as well as antiquities, photographs, and archival materials documenting Christianity in the Middle East. Of particular note is the Gerald and Barbara Weiner collection of Ethiopian manuscripts: This collection includes 183 Christian Ethiopic codices as well as 367 Christian prayer scrolls, which is among the largest collections of Ethiopian Christian manuscripts in North America. In addition, the Gerald and Barbara Weiner Collection includes 177 Islamic Arabic codices from Ethiopia, which is the larges number of such manuscripts outside of Ethiopia itself. Mention should also be made of the Professor Robert W. Thomson collection, which includes more than 3,000 items focused primarily on Armenian Christianity. These recent additions in Armenian and Ethiopic join the already world-class strengths of the collection in Arabic, Coptic, and Syriac. In addition to its immense collection, ICOR produces programming relating to Christianity in the Near East, especially lectures, workshops, conferences, and other events. ICOR also annually hosts two to three scholars as ICOR fellows: These are typically early-career scholars who benefit not only from access to the ICOR collection but also from the community of scholars at The Catholic University of America who study the Christian Near East.
