Fifteen centuries and just about all parts of the world span the Leiden Special Collections in their variety and versatility.

And there is a lot available: for researchers, to study; for students, to discover during their education; for people who want to know more and are interested to learn about history, to travel in space and time. But where to start?

  • Cultural Encounters
  • Renaissance and Humanism
  • Freedom and Repression
  • Materiality of Text and Image
