Description

"Reconstructing Medieval Libraries" examines what a library meant to medieval readers. Papers in this session consider questions of ownership, provenance, and the ways medieval people thought about their books (or about collecting), and in some cases, trace the survival of medieval books in modern libraries. The libraries of a fifteenth-century German Franciscan, of the Woodville family, and of the dukes of Burgundy will be discussed by speakers on this panel.
