Splendors of the religious and artistic endeavors of Byzantine manuscript makers are on display in this exhibit of highlights from the Greek manuscript collection at the University of Michigan Library Special Collections Research Center. The collection — 110 codices (bound manuscripts) and fragments written in Greek from the fourth to the nineteenth centuries C.E. — is the largest such collection in the Western Hemisphere and provides unique insights into this era of achievement in textual transmission, calligraphy, illumination, and bookbinding. The exhibit will be open during Audubon Room hours.

A digital version of the exhibit will be available in the Audubon Room and online, and allows visitors to explore other pages of the manuscripts on display and other manuscripts from the collection.

This exhibit celebrates two recent publications based on the collection: 

* Catalogue of Greek Manuscripts at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Vol. 1., by Nadezhda Kavrus-Hoffmann (Ann Arbor: University of Michigan Press, 2021)

* Tradition and Individuality: Bindings from the University of Michigan Greek Manuscript Collection, by Julia Miller (Ann Arbor: The Legacy Press, 2021)
