Friends of the Library Lecture: Prof. Adam Cohen, on Monday 19 Sept

The Friends of the Library invite you to attend their 2016 Fall Lecture:

“The Book: A Symbol of Monastic Ascent”


(Department of Art, University of Toronto)

Among the activities of monastic reformers around the year 1000 was the production of illuminated manuscripts. Examining a cluster of Ottonian and Anglo-Saxon pictures reveals the central place of the book itself as the ideological site of monastic reform and spiritual ascent.
