Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Introduced by means of comprehensive essays by Professor Jeffrey F. Hamburger of Harvard University and Margaret M. Manion of the University of Melbourne, this sumptuous volume presents the proceedings of a conference held at the State Library of Victoria in 2008 when that institution arranged an important exhibition of medieval manuscripts. Learned papers presented by an array of prestigious scholars investigate topics such as travel, incarceration, purgatory, music, magic, history, worship and inheritance in the medieval world. Jeffrey Hamburger's essay deals with changing conventions in the production of medieval books while Professor Manion describes the State Library's remarkable exhibition.
