Home - Medieval and Renaissance Studies. THE WARBURG INSTITUTE: Library. The Warburg Institute Library holds a collection of international importance in the humanities.


Its 350,000 volumes make it the largest collection in the world focused on renaissance studies and the history of the classical tradition. It includes a large number of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century continental books and periodicals (especially German and Italian), unavailable elsewhere in the UK, as well as several thousand pre-1800 items, many of which are extremely rare and valuable. Its open access provision of a wide range of primary and secondary texts (65% of them in languages other than English) close to the world’s greatest collection of fifteenth and sixteenth century printed books (in the British Library) makes it an ideal working base for research on the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Its detailed organisation makes inspired connections between different fields of endeavour and study. AGI - Archivo General de Indias. En 1785 nacía, por deseo del rey Carlos III, el Archivo General de Indias, con objeto de reunir en un solo lugar los documentos referentes a las Indias hasta entonces dispersos en Simancas, Cádiz y Sevilla.
