Arabic Papyrus, Parchment, and Paper
The Arabic Papyrus, Parchment & Paper Collection is the largest of its kind in the United States, containing 770 Arabic papyrus documents, 1300 Arabic paper documents, and several pieces on parchment. The collection was acquired by Prof. Aziz Suriyal Atiya, founder of the Middle East Center and the Middle East Library. A large number of pieces date to the period between 700 and 850 CE. The collection includes a significant number of documents from the pre-Ottoman period and thus offers unique source material on the political, economic, religious and intellectual life of Egypt during the first two centuries of Islamic rule and the period up to Ottoman domination.

Utah Religious Architecture Photographs
Utah Religious Architecture Photographs
The Utah Religious Architecture Photograph Collection displays the history and variety of religious communities in Utah through images of existing and historical houses of worship. While exterior views are predominant, available interior shots are also welcome if they respect the traditions and feelings of the faith community. A feature of this collection is to highlight how buildings are repurposed. Some church buildings are used by different traditions over time, others are now used for secular purposes, and still others were built for secular purposes and are now occupied by religious communities.
