Fragments of a manuscript containing rare translations of Old French courtly love poems into Old Norse prose were discovered as linings in a bishop’s mitre, and just as remarkably about three-quarters of the original manuscript miraculously survives in the University Library in Uppsala.  Our link is to a blog post from two years ago by Erik Kwakkel, but the fragments were also featured with new photographs in Manuscripts from the Arnamagnaean Collection (2015), a recent arrival in Green Library.
