On Tuesday, February 24, from 6-8 p.m., The Walters Art Museum will host a reception and viewing of medieval manuscripts from the Roman de la Rose Digital Library collection. Medieval scholars, art historians, digital archivists and the general public will be guided on a tour of extravagantly embellished manuscripts and images, which together depict a rich tale of courtly love and human sexuality that has fed scholarship since the 14th and 15th centuries. This event will be part of an exhibition featuring the Saint John’s Bible, the first handwritten, illuminated bible in modern times.
