A man of deep religious conviction, Dr. Sellers placed a Torah scroll at the center of his library, and for each of his fine books his bookplate read in Hebrew, “God is with me, I shall not fear.” He had profound respect for the writings of all great religions, and his collection includes a large representation of Hebrew and Christian scriptures, books for church liturgy and personal piety, and a beautifully illuminated Quran and an Islamic book of prayers. These works, particularly the medieval manuscripts, contribute significantly to Bridwell Library’s important position among American theological and rare book libraries.
