Lambeth Palace wordle

In Museums on November 9, 2010 at 4:23 pm

Earlier this year I wrote an audioguide for the library at Lambeth Palace in London. It was part of a temporary exhibition running over the summer, displaying some of the treasures from the collection they hold there. From some of the oldest Bibles in the country to Henry VIII’s handwriting and many other gems, it was a fascinating glimpse behind the scenes of one of one of the most intriguing collections I’ve worked with over the years.

I decided to put the script of the audioguide into the word-cloud making website wordle.net, to see what the most commonly used words are. There are some likely characters in there which you’d suspect of finding in a library of ecclesiastical material, but also some more peculiar terms.
