Becoming BAR, Fragm. Cod. Lat. 12

Here is the passage from the unidentified wrapper of a book printed in 1520 to Cluj, Biblioteca Academiei Române (BAR), Fragm. Cod. Lat. 12, a beautiful twelfth-century fragment from a copy of Otto of Freising’s Chronicle.

The fragment has been restored and digitised at the National Unity Museum in Alba Iulia, and has been published on Fragmentarium.

The printed book has also been restored, and rebound in leather. Both items now stand prepared to face the coming centuries.
