The oldest item in the library is held in Special Collections (MS 1/21 (5 & 6)) and dates from the eleventh century.

It consists of two fragments from a Service Book containing parts of the Divine Office, and is from France or Northern Italy.

For more on our medieval manuscript holdings see the listings for MS 1 (Miscellaneous Manuscripts) and MS 3 (Brett Manuscript Collection).
