A magnificent code

Biblioteca Teresiana

This manuscript, visually very impressive,   is probably the most well-known of the entire library of the monastery of Saint Benedict in Polirone. It has been exhibited several times also in international exhibitions. It contains magnificent illustrations by two miniaturists who have different styles and different methodological approaches. This manuscript is evidence of the high quality of the activities carried out in the “scriptorium”.
