Guraacquistion Rep 01

The University of Notre Dame Hesburgh Libraries has acquired a late 11th-century Greek codex containing the works of pseudo-Maximus the Confessor. This Greek codex is an exceptionally significant pre-modern manuscript. It is now the oldest bound book in the department’s collection and is among the University’s most exceptional items.

The aquisition of this illustrative example of Byzantine book culture was made possible, in part, by a grant from the B.H. Breslauer Foundation (New York City, NY), along with support from the Medieval Institute and other Notre Dame partners. The manuscript is the only known copy of the text in North America.
