Christopher de Hamel
Meetings with Remarkable Manuscripts
About the event
Christopher de Hamel invites us into intimate conversations with twelve of the most famous manuscripts in existence to explore with the author what they tell us about nearly a thousand years of medieval history – and sometimes about the modern world too. He introduces us to kings, queens, saints, scribes, artists, librarians, thieves, dealers, collectors and the international community of manuscript scholars, touching on religion, art, literature, music, science and the history of taste.
