Manuscripts and Princes in Medieval and Renaissance Europe

These were the books that once belonged exclusively to emperors and kings. Now 34 of the most significant manuscripts from the collections of Carolingian Emperors, the Aragonese kings of Naples and French King Charles V and his family are on display in our virtual exhibition: Manuscripts and Princes in Medieval and Renaissance Europe

This unprecedented collection offers an insight into European cultural activity during three distinct historical periods and unites collections that are scattered among several European libraries.

European scholar Michel Pastoureau and specialist in medieval history supports the exhibition.
