manuscripts are among the greatest glories of Western civilization. The word
‘manuscript’ literally means ‘written by hand’.
The book of hours is a Christian devotional book popular in the Middle
Ages. It is the most common type of
surviving medieval illuminated manuscript.
While each manuscript book of hours is unique, most contain a similar
collection of texts, prayers and psalms, often decorated for Christian
devotion. The exhibit is open to the
public free during normal library hours and will run until January 15, 2015.
We hope you enjoy the new exhibits!
All exhibits are open to the PC Community and the General Public for free.
