An informal lunch or coffee time to meet virtually to talk about one the manuscripts from Penn's collections. This week, Curator Dot Porter will bring out LJS 54, a brief explanation of the office of notary and the purpose of notarial documents (f. 1r), followed by transcriptions of deeds and acts arranged in subject order as examples for a notary drawing up a document. Written in Padua between 1227 and 1237. (OPenn, BiblioPhilly, CWAC Recording)
