Coffee with a Codex: Medicine & Magic of Women

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 May 18, Curator Dot Porter brought out Ms. Codex 1136, 15th c. German copy of De secretis mulierum (also known as Secreta mulierum), a work erroneously attributed to Albertus Magnus and concerning various issues of women's health, with an unidentified commentary. (OPenn, BiblioPhilly, CWAC Recording)
