New acquisitions: medieval manuscript facsimiles

Facsimiles of two famous illuminated medieval manuscripts have recently been added to Special Collections’ holdings. Both are associated with known artists and they are now available for consultation in the reading room or in the classroom.

The Godescalc Evangelistary

This famous liturgical book was commissioned by Charlemagne and written by a Frankish scribe named Godescalc at the palace scriptorium between the years 781 and 783.
