On display: A Medley of Manuscripts

Sat, Apr. 01, 2017 to Sun, Apr. 30, 2017

To mark the Toronto meeting of the Medieval Academy of America in April 2017, the Fisher Library is proud to display a selection of books from its medieval manuscript collections, as well as some of its non-Western texts. They remind us, in the words of St Isidore of Seville (d. 436), that 'letters are signs of things, symbols of words, whose power is so great that without a voice they speak to us the words of the absent; for they introduce words by the eye, not by the ear.'
