Winchester and Blackburn’s ‘Worthy Citizen’: An exhibition of Medieval Manuscripts launched at Senate House, London

Thursday 7 November saw the official launch of the Senate House London exhibition of the medieval manuscripts and early printed books collected by R.E. Hart, a Lancashire philanthropist, held by the Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery. Courtnay Konshuh, a third-year PhD student in the History Department, is one of the key members of the team on this AHRC-funded project, which aims, amongst other things, to draw wider attention to this wide-ranging and fascinating collection, which is little-known outside Blackburn. The exhibition, which includes some magnificently intricate Medieval Books of Hours can be seen (for free) at Senate House until 28 November, and there is a day colloquium associated with the exhibition on 23 November. The catalogue for the exhibition, for which Courtnay is a contributor, is available from the School of Advanced Study, University of London, for £8.
