Shaping Knowledge in the Twelfth Century: The Wolfenbuttel Liber Floridus

Monday 4 February 2013, 4.30PM to 6pm

Speaker: Dr Hanna Vorholt

From the inception of the Liber Floridus, a number of scribes excerpted and copied the compilation, and this process continued for several centuries. Using one of the earliest copies (now in the Herzog August Bibliothek in Wolfenbüttel) as her example, Dr Vorholt will discuss how these manuscripts provide specific insights into the mechanisms that conditioned and shaped the transmission of knowledge.

Location: The Bowland Auditorium, Berrick Saul Building

Admission: All welcome
