The image of the Bodleian Library could be used for the Palimpsests Section.  This is the detail of the ceiling of the Divinity School that is located in Oxford, England, specifically within the complex of the Bodleian Library. The Divinity School is a medieval building that was completed in 1488 and is considered one of the finest examples of late Gothic architecture in England. It was originally built to serve as a lecture hall for the teaching of theology and is known for its intricate stone carvings and beautiful fan-vaulted ceiling. Today, the Divinity School is used for a variety of purposes, including academic ceremonies, lectures, and concerts, and is open to visitors as part of the Bodleian Library tour.


Duke Humfrey's Library is part of the Bodleian Library complex in Oxford, UK. It is one of the oldest parts of the Bodleian Library and is named after Duke Humfrey of Gloucester, a patron of learning who donated many books to the University of Oxford in the 15th century. The library was built between 1427 and 1488 and is considered a masterpiece of late medieval Gothic architecture. Today, it houses some of the Bodleian Library's most valuable manuscripts and rare books, including a Gutenberg Bible and a Shakespeare First Folio.
