Manuscript Rediscovery

ITSEE: News reports a scoop. That report in full:

Manuscript rediscovery

Dr Hugh Houghton and Dr Damaris Romero Gonzales of ITSEE recently located microfilms of complete images of an important manuscript of the Latin Bible, Codex Complutensis I, which suffered major damage in 1936 during the Spanish Civil War. The microfilm, held at the Hill Museum and Manuscript Library, has been digitised and it is hoped soon to make the images of this virtual manuscript available through the Virtual Manuscript Room in Birmingham. A full set of pictures of the manuscript in its current state is available on the Universty of Madrid Biblioteca Complutense website.
