Medieval medical Manuscripts

2017-11-1418:00 Hagströmerbiblioteket, Haga Tingshus, Annerovägen 12Annan

Some manuscripts endure the centuries, and some do not. Medical manuscripts seem to have had relatively short lifespans, perhaps through constant use and perhaps through replacement when new discoveries emerged. Thus, they are frequently found as small fragments, reused in the bindings of other books as a cheap form of recycled material. This lecture will look at a number of new discoveries of such fragments from both the Hagströmer Library and a number of private libraries in Sweden and Europe.

DR TIMOTHY BOLTON is an honorary fellow of both Cardiff University and Aberdeen University.
