Ten years after the Dumbarton Oaks Medieval Library (DOML) published its first book, we’re going stronger than ever! With more than sixty volumes now in the series, we are proud to be bringing Byzantine and medieval literature, history, and written culture to everyone. And now we’d like you to be able to take the Dumbarton Oaks Medieval Library on the go! To celebrate our ten year anniversary, we are holding a prize drawing to give away free canvas tote bags with our logo. To enter, just post a photo of your favorite DOML volume on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
