Special Collections Research Center highlighted in "Manuscripts on My Mind"

The September 2015 edition of Manuscripts on My Mind: News from the Vatican Film Library featured an image of a rare medieval manuscript held in the UK Libraries Special Collections Research Center Rare Book collection. The periodical is published in electronic format by by St. Louis University Libraries. The article featuring the image is by Dr. Scott Gwara, Professor of English at the University of South Carolina. The featured image is an illustration of a "bloody chalice" from MS Kentuckiensis IX “Hours of RenĂ© ’Anglures and Catherine de Bouzey." It is similar to a chalice depicted in the manuscript Book of Hours from northeastern France that was sold at auction this past summer.
