Coffee with a Codex: Humanist History of Rome

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 9, curator Dot Porter brought out LJS 381, a humanist copy of Sallust's works on the history of Rome, with contemporary and later annotations, including alternate readings, some of which were incorporated into the text as corrections. Written in Italy between 1455 and 1465. (OPenn, BiblioPhilly, Internet Archive, CWAC Recording)
