Coffee with a Codex: Notary

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.

This week, Curator Dot Porter brought 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)
