New College Library has a regular display of new books at the far end of the Library Hall, close to the door to the stacks.
New in this month is Caesar and the Lamb : early Christian attitudes on war and military service by George Kalantzis, on the shelf at BT736.2 Kal.
Also new is Migrations of the holy : God, state, and the political meaning of the church by William Cavanaugh, at BV630.3 Cav.
These titles were purchased for Theology & Ethics at the School of Divinity, Edinburgh University.
You can see an regularly updated list of new books for New College Library on the Library Catalogue – choose the New Books Search and limit your search to New College Library. Here’s a quick link to new books arriving in the last few weeks. A word of caution – some of the books listed here may still be in transit between the Main Library (where they are catalogued) and New College Library, so not on the shelf just yet.
The Encyclopedia of Ancient History Online (Wiley Blackwell) is now available to University of Edinburgh users – find it on the library catalogue. If access isn’t clear, try clicking on Institutional Login and entering University of Edinburgh.
