Postgraduate Workshop: Medieval Manuscripts

25th May 2016, 10:00 to 12:00, Deane Room, Palace Green Library, Professor Keith Busby

Professor Keith Busby, author of Codex and Context, is a renowned expert on medieval literature in its manuscript context. In this session for postgraduates, he will give an introduction to items from the University and Cathedral collections, including Wace's Brut, focussing on the importance of studying the real thing, and revealing what we miss when we only read medieval texts in critical editions. It should be fascinating for anyone with interests in the period.
