Coffee with a Codex: Rhetoric

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 September 20, Curator Dot Porter will bring out Oversize Ms. Codex 20, a copy of the Summa dictaminis of Thomas de Capua followed 15 shorter works on the same topic attributed to Johannes Bondi de Aquilegia. Written in Italy, possibly Bologna, in the mid-14th century. See the record in the Franklin catalog
