Taylor-Schechter Genizah Research Unit. On 14 March Dr Sophie Garside led a group of fifteen students from Religions and Theology and Middle Eastern Studies on an excursion to visit the Taylor-Schechter Genizah Research Unit at Cambridge. They were treated to a presentation of a selection of manuscripts and a talk by Dr Ben Outhwaite, Head of the Unit, and a further talk and display from our own Dr Renate Smithius about interesting manuscripts from the Cairo Genizah which are held in the John Rylands University Library, Manchester.
