Conference: Care and conservation of manuscripts
14. - 16. April 2021
In April 1994 a group of manuscript experts met at the Arnamagnæan Institute of the University of Copenhagen for a seminar titled the care and conservation of manuscripts. This was in response to new ideas on the conservation and preservation of manuscripts which were seeing the light of day at the time.
The seminar was modelled on a series of more informal meetings held by the „Research group on manuscript evidence“ based at the Parker Library, Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, where a relatively small group of scholars, librarians and conservators met several times a year to discuss manuscripts from as many different points of view as possible in order better to understand the manuscript as an historical artefact.
The 18th seminar on the Care and conservation of manuscripts will be held virtually from the 14th to the 16th of April 2021.
