“virtually bringing the past to life”

According to The News and Observer, the Virtual Paul’s Cross Project in the Hunt Library’s Teaching and Visualization Lab has “created a new approach to scholarly research that employs a host of disciplines and technologies.”

The project provides students, scholars, and the public with a 270-degree virtual experience of this central place in the religious, literary, political, and social life of 17th century London.

“We wanted to create new research tools – new tools for considering events of the past, new tools for, in effect, bringing words off the page – and for reintroducing ideas like performance and hearing instead of reading,” concluded Professor John Wall.
