Trinity Long Room and the Soul of the Irish Nation
Manage episode 333703097 series 2575536
On 25th August 1992, the Serbian paramilitaries set fire to the National Library of Sarajevo. The library burned for 2 days and 2 nights before the fire could be bought under control. A few centuries prior in 1592, Trinity College was established in Dublin, and it became the first university in all of Ireland and UK to award degrees to women. But what could possibly connect these two disparate cultures across time and space? This week, in the third episode of the series, Ireland Untravelled, we arrive at the Long Room of the Old Library at Trinity College Dublin and understand how and why it houses the soul of the Irish Nation.
