Boston museums teaming up to display rare medieval manuscripts

“Art historian Jeffrey Hamburger slowly turns the animal-skin pages of a fragile religious book, his eyes riveted to bold script that chronicles the lives of the early saints. The craftsmanship is spectacular, the presentation vivid and compelling — even though the work is more than 1,000 years old. The Harvard professor handles the book with awed reverence: It is a priceless illuminated manuscript written by a superbly skilled scribe, probably at a Benedictine abbey in central France no later than the year 935. Today, it resides in the well-protected recesses of the Boston Public Library.” (via The Boston Globe)

    Something to look forward to. Who might the “superbly skilled scribe” be?
