Thélème at Penn – Medieval Manuscript Presentations

This promises to be an enlightening event. Several presenters, including yours truly, will be talking about medieval manuscripts, or things we have learned from those books. Some of them will be on display as well, since this event will take place at the Kislak Center for special collections, rare books and manuscripts at Van Pelt Library, part of the University of Pennsylvania.

I will have a poster on astrolabes, and will be presenting on interactive books. I think its fascinating that without modern technology, there were things that functioned as computers for the storage or processing of information. Just dials on a page, but they could do so much. So if you would like to find out more, join us!
