Launch of the exhibition ‘Letters from an Irish Missionary in China’ | NUI Maynooth Library
A launch of the exhibition ‘Letters from an Irish Missionary in China’ will take place in the Russell Library on Tuesday, 10th December at 4.30pm.
The exhibition tells the story of Bishop Edward Galvin, co-founder of the Maynooth Mission to China, through a series of reproduced letters from the collections of the Columban Fathers. This material is supplemented with primary and secondary sources from the collections of the Russell Library.
The exhibition, which runs until the end of January, provides a fascinating insight into Chinese civilisation and customs as well as religion and politics.
