Coffee with a Codex: Celebrating the Eclipse

An informal lunch or coffee time to meet virtually with Kislak curators and talk about one of the manuscripts from Penn's collections. Each week we'll feature a different manuscript and the expertise of one of our curators. Everyone is welcome to attend.

On April 4, Curator Dot Porter brought out five books that illustrate and describe that most conspicuous of celestial events, the eclipse. We'll look at texts in Latin, Hebrew, and Arabic, ranging from the 12th through the 16th century, and see the similarities and differences between them. (CWAC Recording; individual manuscripts are listed and records linked there)
