The Book: A Symbol of Monastic Ascent

Among the activities of monastic reformers around the year 1000 was the production of illuminated
manuscripts. Examining a cluster of Ottonian and Anglo-Saxon pictures reveals the central place of the
book itself as the ideological site of monastic reform and spiritual ascent.

A reception will follow the lecture in the Laurence K. Shook Common Room at the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies, 59 Queen's Park Crescent East.

This event is free and open to all. Registration is not required. For further information, please contact the Pontifical Institute for Mediaeval Studies at 416 926-7142.
