The ugly manuscripts of Crux of Telč (1434-1504)
February 3 – March 19, 2023

Opening ceremony

Most of the medieval manuscripts stored in the National Library of the Czech Republic date from the 14th and 15th centuries. These codices are not illuminated or made of rare parchment, but often untidy or "ugly" paper volumes for practical use. The exhibition presents those that passed through the hands of a single very active scribe, Crux of Telč who copied or annotated more than 25,000 pages with various texts. This precious collection is a unique testimony to medieval thought and culture.

The Klementinum Gallery
