Coffee with a Codex: Medical miscellany
An informal lunch or coffee time to meet virtually with Kislak curators and talk about one of the manuscripts from Penn's collections. Each week we'll feature a different manuscript and the expertise of one of our curators. Everyone is welcome to attend. On January 19, Curator Dot Porter will bring out LJS 24, a collection of 10th- through early 13th-century texts that formed the standard 13th-century medical curriculum (referred to and printed in the Renaissance under the collective title Articella), here copied in the mid-13th century with inhabited initials showing medical scenes, likely written by and for Dominican monks.
