22nd Biennial New Chaucer Society Congress, Durham 2020
Exhibition: Literature and Devotion in Late Medieval England
In conjunction with the NCS's Durham 2020 Congress, Palace Green Library will be holding an exhibition of its manuscripts, under the title 'Literature and Devotion in Late Medieval England'. Conference delegates will be given free access to this catalogue, and also each delegate will receive a free copy of the (illustrated and annotated) exhibition catalogue, which is being compiled by Professor Richard Gameson (Durham's Professor of the History of the Book).
The focus will be on Middle English books, but there will be some Latin material as well. As long as logistics and conservation-requirements allow, the books on show are likely to include the Durham Troilus, the Hoccleve autograph, as well as copies of work by Lydgate, Mirk, Walton, Rolle and Richard of Bury. More information about this exhibition will be provided in due course…
