Many shrines of mystics were burned in Tunisia after the revolution. In eight months (2012 - 2013) nearly 34 shrines distributed throughout the Republic were burned. Many important manuscripts of different threads, dating back several centuries, were in these shrines. Addressing these attacks, our mission is to raise awareness of the importance of this heritage, the need to preserve it by law and material resources, and to exchange information and skills about manuscripts preservation.
