Prince Albert of Monaco made a “substantial donation” for the conservation of the old library of Trinity College in Dublin, we learned yesterday.

is six-year-old twins, Crown Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, accompanied him on a trip to Trinity, where an unveiling ceremony was held to mark the donation.

Although the sum was not disclosed by Trinity College, it is believed to be around $ 1million.

Although she may not have accompanied him on his trip to Ireland yesterday, Prince Albert has revealed that his wife’s ancestors, Princess Charlene, were instrumental in founding Trinity.

His paternal line descends from the Fagans of Feltrim, a prosperous 16th century Dublin family.

Brothers Christopher and Richard Fagan, who both served as mayors of Dublin, were instrumental in founding the university in 1592.

Princess Charlene, whom Prince Albert married 10 years ago, has been in South Africa for more than three months and was reportedly hospitalized on Wednesday after collapsing due to complications from an infection she contracted in may.

In a recent interview, the prince said his wife “is ready to come at home ”, affirming that his return to Monaco is based on the authorization of the doctors.

He called Trinity as part of his three day visit to Ireland.

It has been 10 years since his first state visit here, and 60 years since his parents Prince Rainier and Princess Grace captured the hearts of the Irish public in 1961 on their official visit.

Trinity Provost and Chair, Professor Linda Doyle, said: “Her visit builds on Trinity’s existing links with Monaco through the Irish Princess Grace Library and our Center for War Studies.

An unveiling ceremony took place of a frieze with the names of Prince Albert and Princess Charlene on the University Benefactors’ wall at the entrance to the dining room, and another frieze containing the prince’s name Albert on the gallery of the log room of the old library.

He said: “It is with great pleasure that, thanks to this donation, I follow in the footsteps of my mother who had a deep affection for Ireland and points out the connection with the ancestors of Princess Charlene, who have was instrumental in the founding of Trinity. “

A visit to UCD Smurfit School was also on the schedule, where the prince visited the Blackrock campus with founder Michael Smurfit, UCD President Andrew Deeks and UCD College of Business Dean Anthony Brabazon,

Prince Albert spent time chatting with current students and young alumni and received a special collection of the works of Séamus Heaney.

Previously, he had also called in Áras an Uachtaráin and had taken time with President Michael D Higgins to look at photos of his parents’ visit there in the early 1960s.

He expressed his “sincere gratitude to President Higgins for the warm welcome” extended to me and to the Monegasque delegation “during the visit, when he signed the guestbook.

“I sincerely wish that all of our joint ventures meet with great success,” he said in his entry.

The royal visit to Ireland may have been official, but its tone was decidedly low-key.

It comes as the royal couple have had to endure speculation in some sections of the French media, due to the princess’ prolonged absence from the Principality of Monaco.

She posted photos of the family group on Instagram last month, saying, “I’m so thrilled to have my family with me.”

Princess Charlene visited South Africa in May to raise awareness about rhino poaching.

In an interview with South African radio station 702 in July, the princess explained that her trip was initially scheduled to last 12 days, but was extended due to health complications.

“Unfortunately, I had a problem leveling my ears and found out from the doctors that I had a sinus infection, and a pretty serious infection,” she said.

“So it takes time to adjust to this problem that I have. I cannot force the healing, so I will be locked up in South Africa until the end of October.

“I cannot fly above three thousand meters, otherwise I will have a problem with my ears. I feel good, I feel good. Obviously, this is a waiting game for me.

Meanwhile, in a new interview with People magazine, Prince Albert said his wife’s return to Monaco relies on medical clearance, but that she is “impatient” to go home.

” She is ready. She joked that she was ready to board a ship back to Europe, ”he said.

“I know she said maybe late October, but that was before that last round of nominations.

“I’m pretty sure we can shorten that time a bit.”

Her comments follow reports that Princess Charlene was rushed to hospital by ambulance on Wednesday after collapsing due to complications from the infection.

The Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation declared Tatler: “Her medical team is currently evaluating her but has confirmed that the princess is stable.”

Monaco Palace added:

“Prince Albert and their children will join her during her recovery period. “

Prince Albert and his children last visited Princess Charlene in South Africa the week.

In the UK, the British Library has an unrivaled collection of Zoroastrian manuscripts and therefore welcomed the opportunity to exhibit three of its Zoroastrian treasures in the current “Epic Iran” exhibition organized by the V&A with Iran Heritage Foundation in association with The Sarikhani Collection.

The exhibition covers around five millennia of Iranian history and is the first of its kind since the Royal Academy’s International Persian Art Exhibition of 1931. Organized into nine sections, it explores and brings together the full range of Iranian material cultures, from the earliest known writings to the Revolution of 1979 and beyond. Out of around 300 pieces, the British Library has contributed fifteen manuscripts which will be the subject of two blogs. In this first article, I will focus on the three Zoroastrian elements.

Zoroastrianism, the religion of the ancient Iranians, owes its name to Zarathushtra (Zoroaster) whose hymns (Gathas) are thought to have been composed 1500 BC-1000 BC. It teaches the importance of good thoughts, words and deeds, in a dualistic cosmos where the forces of the All-Knowing Lord, Ahura Mazda, are constantly opposed to those of the Evil Spirit, Angra Mainyu.

Originating in Central Asia, Zoroastrianism spread east to China and south to Iran where it became the main religion from the 6th century BC until the middle of the 7th century AD. After the arrival of Islam, Zoroastrian refugees from Iran established settlements in Gujarat, where they were called Parsis (“Persians”). Zoroastrian diaspora communities have since established themselves all over the world.

Prayer “Achem vohu”

Zoroastrianism is essentially an oral religion. The oldest scriptures, called Avesta or Zend, are in an ancient Iranian language, Avestan. They were not written, however, until around the 6th century AD during the Sassanid period, several centuries after their composition. Even after that, the main liturgical texts were transmitted orally. This is partly the reason why, in addition to Ashem vohu fragment mentioned below, there is no surviving manuscript prior to the end of the 13th century.

The ‘Ashem vohu’ prayer transcribed in Sogdian script, dating from around the 9th century. Photo credit: British Library (public domain)

This fragment dates from around the 9th century and comes, not from India or Iran, the lands today associated with Zoroastrianism, but from Dunhuang in central China, where it was discovered in the Mogao caves by Aurel. Stein in 1907. It contains a short text in Sogdian (the language of Middle Iran) on the prophet Zarathushtra followed by a phonetic transcription in Sogdian script of one of the holiest Zoroastrian prayers, the Ashem vohu, originally composed in Avestan.

Remarkably, the language of prayer is not recognizable as Sogdian or Avestic, but is likely to represent a much older Iranian dialect, possibly an archaic form of Avestan. The prayer must have been preserved orally in this ancient form, which was not affected by the codification of the Avesta in the Sassanid era when the sacred texts were first written (N Sims-Williams, The eternal flame, p.94).

Zoroastrianism was transported east to China from the first centuries of the first millennium by Sogdian traders, whose homeland was the region of Samarkand in present-day Uzbekistan. This document provides written evidence of its continuation into the 9th century and, more importantly, it is the only example of its kind, dating to about four centuries earlier than any other surviving Zoroastrian text.

‘Videvdad Sadah’

The Videvdad Sadah is a liturgical presentation in Avestan of the most important of Zoroastrian legal works, the Videvdad (“Law repudiating demons”). The text, described as sad (“Clean”), that is, without any commentary, is recited in a ritual context. This opening shows the beginning of chapter nine which concerns the ritual of purification of the nine nights (barashnum nuh shab) for someone who has been defiled by contact with a dead body.

Most of our Zoroastrian manuscripts originate from India, copied by and for the Parsi community which traditionally emigrated from Iran starting around the 8th century. However, this beautifully written and decorated copy was made in Yazd, Iran in 1647 by a Zoroastrian Mihrban Anushirvan Bahram Shah who copied it for a Kirman Zoroastrian called Marzban Sandal Khusraw. While Zoroastrian manuscripts are generally un-illustrated except for small devices such as verse dividers and the occasional diagram, this one, unusually, contains seven color illustrations, six of trees, and a diagram. The header was decorated in the style of contemporary illuminated Islamic manuscripts.

This copy was most likely brought from Iran to India by the Iranian poet and writer Siyavakhsh Urmazdyar, himself a descendant of the original patron, in the mid-19th century before being acquired by Burjorji Sorabji Ashburner, a man of prosperous Bombay business which introduced him to the Royal Society, London in May 1864. Transferred to the India Office Library in 1876, it was incorporated into the collection of the British Library in 1982.

The ‘Bundahishn

Chapter 27 of the ‘Bundahishn’. Photo credit: British Library, Mss Avestan 2 (public domain)

The Bundahishn, or “Primordial Creation”, is perhaps the most important Zoroastrian work on cosmogony and cosmography. Composed in Pahlavi (Middle Persian) at the beginning of the Islamic period, it is conventionally dated to the 9th century. It presents the Zoroastrian worldview beginning with a detailed account of the perfect creation of the all-knowing Lord, Ahura Mazda (Ohrmazd in Middle Persian), who was attacked by the evil spirit, Angra Mainyu (Ahriman) and tainted with disease and the death. .

The cosmic drama culminates in the resurrection of the dead and the defeat and elimination of Evil from the world of Ohrmazd and its perfection at the end of time. The cosmographic parts of the text include descriptions of the lands of the world, rivers, lakes, mountains, plants, animals, and human races.

The text of the Bundahishn is preserved in two distinct versions, an Indian and a more complete Iranian. This manuscript gives the text of the Indian Bundahishn and is written in Pazand, an Avestan phonetic script. Copied in India in the 17th or 18th century, it was acquired by the East India Company surgeon Samuel Guise (1751-1811) while working at the East India Factory in Surat and was purchased by the library of the East India Company after his death.

A published catalog of Epic Iran is available from the three curators: John Curtis, Ina Sarikhani Sandmann and Tim Stanley Epic Iran: 5,000 years of culture.

The author is the main curator, Persian, at the British Library,

I am writing to you about the Walker Library. We’ve been library patrons since we moved to Walker, and it has been a lifeline for our family. I really enjoyed the polls that were published asking what the community wanted to use the library for and how to deal with the collapse of the building. Thank you for allowing us to have a voice on this vital resource.

We went to the library every week before COVID-19 hit. It was great that there were different sections for different levels of my kids. There was a beanbag ready in a quiet area for the older child, a table in the kids’ section for the middle kids, and a wonderful play area for the younger ones. Books were easy to find for each level and we loved going to the library. We would meet friends at the library, then go downtown for lunch. It was a big push to get us out into town.

Since the library moved, we’ve only been there twice. We know that the staff did their best with the space they had available, and that finding space was limited due to the heavy books. There is simply not enough room in the current building for our family, let alone to meet friends and use the resources available at the library.

Three generations of our family have enjoyed the Walker Library, and we hope to continue doing so as our children grow older. Please go ahead, develop and build the new library! I look forward to seeing this community come together around the library again. Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.

“I’ll have a PowerPoint with some pictures and talk about myself, my background, how the book came about,” said Kleve White.

Kleve White published the book in February 2019, but worked on it for about 15 years before that. She said it all started while she was researching a 100th anniversary team spirit reunion, celebration and football halftime show in 2003.

Debra Kleve White’s book “The Spirit of Nebraska: A Tale of Husker Play Day Lore – the Tunnel Walk, Mascots, Cheers and More“is available at the Columbus Public Library, as well as over 50 other libraries in Nebraska. Kleve White will be in Columbus on August 21 to discuss the book.

“I didn’t start writing a book,” Kleve White said with a laugh. “… As I researched and put it all together, I started to uncover all this interesting information that Husker fans wouldn’t know and decided I had to write a book to share it.”

Kleve White said the book mainly focuses on the early days of UNL, even before the football program started, and looks at the introduction of the sports team and cheering.

“I really wanted to focus on the first part and the progressiveness of Nebraska,” said Kleve White.

For example, she said, Nebraska had the first female college cheerleaders starting in 1917. Prior to that, in the 1800s, it was home to some of the first black soccer players.

“Some teams wouldn’t play Nebraska because of it,” said Kleve White.

The book also includes sections on Husker fans, football history, and the evolution of the college mascot.

The public library can serve as a ‘popular university’, enriching what we have learned in the classroom


Today I saved $ 300 on my household entertainment budget. No, we haven’t stopped our Netflix subscription or canceled any fun family plans. Instead, I used the library!

The Massachusetts Library Association developed a “Library Service Value” calculator, in which I entered everything I could borrow in a typical week. Books for the whole family, a DVD or two, digital audiobooks, and an Explorer Pass for the High Desert Museum. The calculator does not include other items that you can now find at the Crook County Library, such as our robotics and construction kits, telescopes, or loanable tech kits which will be available soon.

This open access to information is one of the things that brought me to librarianship as a career; I like the idea that the public library can serve as a “people’s university”. Author Ta-Nehisi Coates shared similar feelings about libraries in 2017, stating, “The pursuit of knowledge was freedom for me, the right to declare your own curiosities and to follow them through all kinds of books. . I was made for the library, not the The classroom was a prison for the interests of others. The library was open, endless, free. Slowly, I discovered myself.

While I certainly support formal education, the fact remains that the public library offers material to develop and enrich what we have (or maybe not) learned in the classroom.

With all of these resources at our fingertips, why do we see people abandoning the use of libraries? Almost every time I work with the public at the library information desk, I speak with someone who says shamefully, “I’m sure I have so many overdue fines, that’s why I don’t. haven’t been there for so long. It is my joy these days to proclaim, “We don’t do late fines!” Usually there is a moment of surprise followed by gratitude that this barrier to service no longer exists.

Fines and fees collected by the Crook County Library represent less than 1% of our operating revenues; primarily we are funded by county property taxes. The library belongs to our community just as much as our law enforcement and our parks, and this is what drives my commitment to removing other barriers, real and perceived, in the service of the library.

The library’s 2019-2024 strategic plan sets out several objectives related to increasing access to our services; we seek to improve physical accessibility, we strive to reach underserved populations, including those who may be housebound or who speak a language other than English, we work to increase access to technology and we widely promote the principles of early literacy to local families.

Upcoming initiatives to achieve these goals include the use of grants to translate parts of our website and select policy documents into Spanish, a pilot project called Words on Wheels that will provide library materials to clients unable to visit our building. and the launch of loanable technological kits. which will allow customers to borrow laptops, tablets and WiFi hotspots for use at home.

If you haven’t visited the library in a while, what’s holding you back? If you run into any obstacles, I would like to know more. Come see us or give me a call, I’m ready to listen to you and see how we can help you.
