What medieval manuscript material is held in Special Collections?
Answered By: Susan Kirkpatrick Last Updated: Aug 12, 2015 Views: 11
Special Collections holds c. 70 MSS dating from the C11 – C15. Many of these items are fragments, but the collection includes such highlights as a late C15 Book of Hours (MS 1/17) and a late medieval copy of Thomas Aquinas’ Cantena aurea (MS 1/ 126). Also held in Special Collections are several examples of medieval manuscripts reused as binding for printed books, and an extensive collection of medieval manuscripts held on microfilm.
