April 16, 2020 Books Ripped Away: Secularization and the Removal of Monastic Books to State Libraries

You can’t judge a book by its cover, unless the cover is 300 years old, worm-devoured, or from a remote archive in the Mediterranean Sea. Then, an archival expert can conclude a lot—not just about the individual book, but about the culture and society that produced it. 

The public will have the opportunity to learn about this and more from HMML archival experts at three lectures taking place this spring. 


In the third lecture, Dr. Matthew Heintzelman, Curator of Western Collections and Rare Books at HMML, will look at the history of monastic collections that were built over centuries and their removal to the Bavarian State Library, state libraries and archives in Austria.
