An exciting trip through the history of an enigmatic character, Rosendo Salvado, a Spanish Benedictine monk that founded a monastery in the 19th century in Western Australia to Christianise the local Indigenous peoples. Rosendo Salvado (1814-1900) embarked on a mission to create an almost experimental, utopic Benedictine community.

This documentary commemorates his life through the eyes of a Spanish rock star, also called Rosendo, who follows the steps of the first Rosendo in Australia.

-The screening will be preceded by a video introduction from Rosendo Mercado.-

"Law books" and "illustrations" are rarely associated with one another. Yet, for the past decade, hundreds of examples have been assembled in the Yale Law Library by its Rare Book Librarian, Michael Widener, spanning eight centuries and four continents. A major exhibition of the collection, entitled “Law’s Picture Books,” will open in September 2017 at the Grolier Club in New York City.

In his talk, Michael Widener will go beyond a preview of the exhibition to explore how collections like this can open fresh opportunities for libraries, book collectors, and researchers.

This exhibition highlights a rich tradition of legal publishing which book lovers - and lawyers - are often surprised to learn exists at all.
