Event description

Description

Be transported back to the 14th century by immersing yourself in the world of medieval books on this curator-guided meander through the Medieval Books Great and Small: the Clumber Bible exhibition.

Be astonished by the beauty, diversity and size of medieval texts – from the monumental and lavishly illuminated 23kg Clumber Bible (measuring almost 90cm across when open), to the exquisitely diminutive Sarum Breviary (10cm high).

Don’t miss this opportunity to get close to these splendid vestiges from an earlier time with Baillieu Library Rare Books Curator, Susan Thomas, who will provide short introductions to each object and be happy to answer your questions.
