About:
Winner of the Duff Cooper prize, Christopher de Hamel will bring his investigation into the lives of 12 truly
remarkable manuscripts to life in this superbly-illustrated talk.
From Copenhagen to Florence, Munich to St Petersburg, he describes his meetings as similar to encountering a famous
person and endeavouring to fathom their true character: “erasures and scrapings, a scribal error here, a jumbled foliation there, can tell us much about the scholarly disputes, patrons and politics of the times”.
