One thought on ““Insular, Anglo-Saxon, and Early Anglo-Norman Manuscript Art at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge” (1997)

  1. […] The Research Group is dedicated to the study of manuscript materials, including scripts, texts, decoration, illustrations, diagrams, maps, musical notations, and more.  You name it.  Anything produced by hand in the creation of evidence that records human experience, aspirations, knowledge, research, and discoveries, across a long range of time and space.  When we first organized as an entity, because of the focus of our chosen research project, we concentrated upon the period of production and transmission of manuscripts, in various languages, to and through England and English (or Old and Middle English) in the Middle Ages and beyond.  Some of the process and the fruits of that concentration are recorded here: History Research Group Seminars on the Evidence of Manuscripts and the Illustrated Catalogue of Insular, Anglo-Saxon, and Early Anglo-Norman Manuscript Art at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge.
