Subject: conservation of sacred objects

conservation of sacred objects

From: Joanna McMann <archmuse<-a>
Date: Monday, March 14, 2005
I am studying Conservation at Fleming College in Peterborough,
Ontario. I am writing a paper on the considerations (including
ethical) when faced with treating sacred objects and/or sacred
writings. I have read the archived thread re: Jack Thomson's
experience with the Torah scrolls, which is actually the inspiration
for my paper. My focus will be on Jewish sacred writings, but I
would like to hear from others in the field who have encountered
sacred objects/writings in the course of their work--what are your
experiences, what do you see as the challenges, how did you handle
the situation, what went into your decision making, what would you
have done differently, what are your thoughts, etc. I have more
specific questions that I can discuss with anyone who would like to
reply to me off-list <archmuse<-a t->hotmail< . >com> or
<jmcmann<-a t->flemingc< . >on< . >ca>
