CANCELLED | Daniela Mairhofer | Quo feror? Unde abii? Textual and Material Fragmentation and the Question of Origin and Date: Princeton's Earliest Virgil

Event Description

MARBAS in collaboration with the Princeton University Library is excited to announce the Fall 2023 'PUL&MARBAS present' event series, which explores Princeton’s vast holdings of rare books, manuscripts, and archives.

In the past, scholars have disagreed about the date and provenance of Princeton's earliest Virgil, Garrett MS. 108. In this session we will reassess the fragment with the aim of learning more about the date, provenance and fragmentation of the original manuscript, based on a thorough analysis of both text and material. 

The sessions begin at 5pm with a short presentation, followed by a Q&A and libations.
