20 Beautiful Digitized Medieval Manuscripts from the Universitätsbibliothek Erlangen-Nürnberg

We have received an email containing a link to 20 digitized medieval manuscripts from Universitätsbibliothek Erlangen-Nürnberg in Germany. We have added them to the DMMmaps (Only the Standard one, for now.)

The link was sent us by Mrs Gisela Glaeser. The email contained a brief description of the housing institution:

The University Library of Erlangen-Nuremberg houses about 700 medieval manuscripts. These manuscripts originate from the Cistercian Monastery of Heilsbronn, the Franciscan Monastery St. Jobst (near Bayreuth), the palace library of Ansbach, and the University Library of Altdorf. They were transferred to Erlangen in the 18th and 19th centuries.

We gave a brief look at the digitized manuscripts, and we are very excited to say that there is a wealth of beauties contained in them. We are posting a few of the highlights we have discovered, but there is so much more to be seen.

Enjoy exploring!
