Speaker: Dr Monika Mueller

The twelfth-century treatise known as ‘Concerning the Various Arts’ (Schedula diversarum artium) is essential reading for all students of the arts and material culture of the Middle Ages. The manuscript preserved in the Herzog August Library of Wolfenbuettel (Ms Cod. Guelf. 69 Gud. lat.) is considered to be the oldest of five manuscripts of the Theophilus text and was the first to have been published. The authorship, date and purpose of this enigmatic work remains a topic of intense interest and our speaker, one of its custodians, will discuss the manuscript, the text and its author in the light of recent scholarship.
