Library Exhibits


Exhibit Name: The Book of Hours Exhibit
Dates: Oct 15, 2014 - Jan 15, 2014

Medieval 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.
