Rome – Pontifical Oriental Institute

The Pontifical Oriental Institute (POI) is one of the world’s premier centers for the study of Eastern Christianity. Founded in 1917, the POI has established a tradition for careful and conscientious scholarship. The POI is known the world over for its superlative collection of Christian oriental literature. Part of this treasury is a small but valuable collection of Slavonic manuscripts, which were catalogued in 1997. Old Church Slavonic is the liturgical language of the Russian and Eastern European Orthodox Christians. In 2002 BYU completed a project at the POI to digitize the complete collection of 54 manuscripts. This project was part of a larger initiative on the part of the library to improve access to manuscript collections for both students and external academics.
