On November 30th, we have a special hour-long Coffee With A Codex looking at medical manuscripts with our colleagues at McGill University. Side-by-side, we'll view UPenn LJS 24, a 13th century medical miscellany written in Paris, and the Admont Manuscript, a new acquisition at the Osler Library of the History of Medicine containing the Commentum in Versus Aegidii de urinis, compiled possibly in Northern Italy or Southern France in the 13th or 14th centuries.

Note that this event is being hosted by McGill University and you will need to register in order to attend. The usual weekly CWAC link will not work for this event.
