Coffee with a Codex: Carta executoria

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 January 26, Schoenberg Curator of Manuscripts Nicholas Herman brought out LJS 21, a Carta executoria issued under the name of Philip III of Spain in favor of Juan de Mena Gutierrez of the town of Los Santos in the Spanish province of León, in response to his pleito de hidalguia (litigation to establish noble status). Granada, 14 April 1606. (OPenn, CWAC Recording)
