Issue N° 17
43 new manuscripts
With 43 new manuscripts our manuscript library has grown to a total of 1,233 manuscripts from 51 collections. The number of Jewish manusripts has increased considerably since we had the opportunity to publish the private collection of René Braginsky. The Braginsky collection contains several Jewish manuscripts that originated in Switzerland and thus bear witness to a deeply rooted Jewish culture in Switzerland.
We celebrate the completion of e-codices’ 10th year with a worthy selection of manuscripts: another four magnificent illuminated manuscripts from the Bibliothèque de Genève, three manuscripts from the Abbey Library of Engelberg, one St. Gall manuscript which today is held in Mulhouse in France, five manuscripts from the Abbey Library of St. Gall, two from the Cantonal Library of Aargau, four splendid antiphonaries from the Parish Library St. Laurent in Estavayer-le-Lac, the Zürich armorial, and four new manuscripts from the Central and University Library of Lucerne.
