From Georgskommende to Pferdegasse

The supreme institution for the study of the NT text, the Institut für neutestamentliche Textforschung (INTF) has recently moved within Münster. They used to be at Georgskommende 7 (smaller picture) but now are in Pferdegasse 1 (large picture), nearer good places for coffee and with somewhat more room. Although arguably the previous building was more photogenic for a webpage, the latter should provide (even) better resources for visiting scholars.

It'd be nice if they'd open up an associated site in North America, but I guess the chances of that ever happening are pretty low.

Definitely a nice location -- right on museum row and across from the Aegidiimarkt (which certainly should increase visitation to the Bibelmuseum! And as for coffee shops, nothing better than the one right around the corner from the art museum, across from the Domplatz.

Now I am aching even more to return for some more collation research....
