Scripting the Sacred: Medieval Latin Manuscripts
Scripting the Sacred, part one of a two-part exhibition of Western European manuscripts and fragments, showcases the medieval experience of reading. Far from being a static process, reading in the Middle Ages necessitated a dynamic relationship between manuscripts and their readers, at a much more deliberate and contemplative pace than most modern reading. As we encounter radical changes in our own digital age, this exhibit encourages us to think critically about how we interact with the text, and how these interactions condition the way we acquire knowledge.
This exhibit is curated by Kathryn Dickason, Ph.D. candidate in Religious Studies and David A. Jordan, Assistant Director for Library Development and Associate Curator for paleographical materials.
