Coffee with a Codex: Papal Letters Online

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 August 3, Schoenberg Curator Nick Herman brought out Ms. Codex 85, a collection of papal letters and instruments dealing with the order of the Eremite Friars of St. Augustine (the Augustinians) copied in Italy ca. 1506.

Unfortunately Nick didn't record the event, but on August 29, Curator Dot Porter led a small group for a couple of people who missed the original event, and that was recorded and is presented here. This is an Unofficial CWAC recording and is very different from what Nick Herman presented on August 3. (OPenn, BiblioPhilly, CWAC Recording)
