Scripting the Sacred: Medieval Latin Manuscripts

Scripting the Sacred: Medieval Latin Manuscripts

February 13, 2013
by Elizabeth A Fischbach

Scripting the Sacred, an exhibition of Western European manuscripts and fragments, showcases the medieval experience of reading. The exhibition is on display in the Peterson Gallery and Munger Rotunda of Green Library through March 17, 2013.

Studying these texts involved not only the absorption of knowledge, but also practices of interpretation, identification, and devotion. By focusing on the exercise of reading, this exhibition explores "scripting" in diverse forms: scribal activity, scripted performances, and inscribed divine things (res divinae).

Are you counting the days until the 2013 Cardinal football season starts? If so, why not bask in the glow of past victories a little longer -- stop by the Bender Room (on the fifth floor of the Bing Wing) to see a selection of historic Rose Bowl memorabilia from the collections of the Stanford University Archives. The exhibit will be on view through the end of February.
