The Liesborn Gospel at TEFAF

March 7, 2015

Dr. Sandra Hindman presents the famous tenth-century Liesborn Gospel Book, an Ottonian Gospel Book presented by an abbess to her convent of nuns. The last time that this manuscript appeared in a bookseller's catalogue was described in capital letters as "ONE OF THE MOST VALUABLE MANUSCRIPTS OF THE GOSPELS IN PRIVATE HANDS." If that was valid seventy years ago, it is even truer now.
