Welcome to the Radulpharium

RadulphariumContinuing counter-clockwise around the 2nd floor from Anna's Room, you'll enter the Radulpharium, a home for texts on Thought, Ideology, and Cultural Critique.

Directly ahead you'll find Christian Sacred Literature, including Bibles (full and partial) and Biblical Reference texts.

To your left the wrap-around shelves begin with General Religion, then go through sections for Judaica, Catholicism, Quaker, Anabaptist, Latter Day Saints, and Islam.

Opposite these, in the island, is Christianity at large, which contains Issues in Christianity, Christian Ministry, and Christian Theology (divided into Classic and Contemporary).

On the other side of the island is the Philosophy shelf, sorted into Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance, British Empiricism, 17th Century, Enlightenment, Utilitarianism, 19th Century, Nietzsche, Existentialism, Marxism, Pragmatism, Analytical, and Continental Philosophy.

On the back of the shelves containing Islam you'll find the General Eastern Religion section, as well as sections on Buddhism and Hinduism.

Opposite these is a shelf containing Paranormal, Paganism & Wicca, Divination, New Age & Alternative, Dreams, and Spirituality.

Continuing around the room, past the quilt-topped chair and its window (likely with a cat if it's the early afternoon), you'll find the rest of the wall bookshelves in the following order:

African American Studies, Latin American Studies, Asian American Studies, Native American Studies, Women's Studies, GLBT, Sex, Death, Cities, then Cultural Studies.
