HBLL digitizes a medieval manuscript

L. Tom Perry Special Collections holds around two dozen medieval manuscripts (or manuscript fragments).  Recently, the library digitized one of these treasures: an English manuscript dating from 1343 entitled Regimen Animarum.  The manuscript was written for the Archbishopric of Canterbury.  The text is in Latin and is a religious manual for ecclesiastical officials, covering preaching, teaching, and administering religious rites and sacraments.  It also contains four leaves of music, a version of the New Office of the Corpus Christi, a portion of which is shown above.

The manuscript can be viewed online here or by searching the library’s Digital Collections.
