Medieval Manuscript Fragments

Exhibition and Shows

28 Mar 2023 to 3 Apr 2023 Daily Event

See four rarely shown original medieval manuscript fragments from the State Library’s collection. As the fragments are sensitive to light, they can be displayed but for a short time.

The ‘fragments’ are single manuscript leaves (pages), that were removed from the original whole works during a monumental change in the evolution of the book. Digital copies of the fragments now feature in the international, online research laboratory Fragmentarium.

The Fragmentarium project collates digital copies of fragments from hand-written medieval books, known as manuscripts. In contributing to this project the State Library joins institutions such as the Vatican Library, British Library, Harvard University, Bayerische Staatsbibliothek and Biblioteca Nacional.

This landmark project started at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland, with the intention of providing a digital space for fragments of these precious books, for international study and research.
