Coffee with a Codex: Medicine & Magic
An informal lunch or coffee time to meet virtually with Kislak Curator Dot Porter and talk about one of the manuscripts from Penn's collections. Each week we'll feature a different manuscript and the expertise of other curators. Everyone is welcome to attend. On February 9 we'll look at LJS 470, a 16th century collection of medical recipes, folk remedies, charms, and spells, written in Hebrew. See it online: https://bibliophilly.library.upenn.edu/viewer.php?id=LJS%20470#page/232/mode/2up.
