  • Krannert Art Museum show will bring together medieval manuscripts owned by the U. of I.

    This 10th century manuscript of Latin inscriptions was cut out of a book and reused to wrap the binding of another book. It is part of an exhibition at Krannert Art Museum of medieval manuscripts, showing how they were valued – and sometimes cut up and reused – in the Middle Ages and since.
