Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts at the University of Michigan
The University of Michigan Library holds an extraordinary collection of medieval and Renaissance manuscripts in various languages, mostly in Greek and Latin, and ranging from the fourth to the sixteenth centuries. Being actively used for teaching and research, these manuscripts are unique witnesses of the intellectual and artistic endeavors of a given community living in a particular time and place. In this presentation, we will examine some highlights from the collection, each manuscript containing a text that illustrates a distinctive feature of medieval and Renaissance culture, including topics such as religion, astronomy, medicine, music, and literature.
