Coffee with a Codex: Joint event with McGill University
An informal lunch or coffee time to meet virtually with Kislak curators and talk about one of the manuscripts from Penn's collections. Each week we'll feature a different manuscript and the expertise of one of our curators. Everyone is welcome to attend.
On November 30th, we had a special hour-long Coffee With A Codex looking at medical manuscripts with our colleagues at McGill University. Side-by-side, we viewed UPenn LJS 24, a 13th century medical miscellany written in Paris, and the Admont Manuscript, a new acquisition at the Osler Library of the History of Medicine containing the Commentum in Versus Aegidii de urinis, compiled possibly in Northern Italy or Southern France in the 13th or 14th centuries.
