HBLL digitizes a medieval manuscript
May 3, 2011
L. Tom Perry Special Collections holds around two dozen medieval manuscripts (or manuscript fragments). Recently, the library digitized one of these treasures: an English manuscript dating from 1343 entitled Regimen Animarum. The manuscript was written for the Archbishopric of Canterbury. The text is in Latin and is a religious manual for ecclesiastical officials, covering preaching, teaching, and administering religious rites and sacraments. It also contains four leaves of music, a version of the New Office of the Corpus Christi, a portion of which is shown above.
