Medieval Manuscripts

The manuscripts of the University and North Rhine-Westphalian State Library Düsseldorf make up one of the most significant collections in the State of North Rhine-Westphalia. The collection contains about 400 copies extending from the 9th to the 16th century. As they are mainly secularization goods coming from 22 Rhenish and Westphalian monasteries, seminaries and convents, this collection is even more liturgically and theologically influenced than might have been expected with collections from medieval manuscripts.
