Středověké rukopisy v Městském muzeu v Krnově
MEDIEVAL MANUSCRIPTS IN THE KRNOV TOWN MUSEUM
Languages of publication
The Krnov Town Museum collections include two medieval manuscripts - a Latin Bible and a German gospel postilla by Nikolaus von Dinkelbuehl. Neither manuscript has previously been known to specialist circles. The Bible contains the text of the Latin Vulgate with prologues on most books of the Bible, and it was completed in 1433 by an unknown scribe. From the ownership notes and monograms it was possible to ascertain that its owner was in the second half of the fifteenth century the administrator of the Utraquist Consistory and Chancellor of Prague University Vaclav Koranda the Younger. The number of manuscripts known today preserved from Koranda's library has come to forty. The Bible was acquired by the museum collections from the Minorite Monastery Library in Krnov in the early 1950s. The second medieval manuscript is the German gospel postilla by Nikolaus von Dinkelsbuehl, which is the only known example of this work housed in Czech libraries.
