Treasures of Ripon Cathedral at the International Medieval Congress

Join us for a drop-in session to see medieval treasures from Ripon Cathedral Library and Archives in this milestone year as Ripon Cathedral celebrates 1350 years since its consecration by St Wilfrid in 672AD.

The Library of Ripon Cathedral is held on long-term deposit in Special Collections at the University of Leeds. Medieval manuscripts include a Latin Bible of c. 1260 and the Ripon Psalter of 1418. Hidden in the library are many medieval manuscript fragments, recycled to strengthen the bindings of the books. Around 70 fragments have been physically removed from the books and a much greater number remain in situ. The Ripon Dean & Chapter Archives consist of the medieval fabric and account rolls, chapter acts, and court papers.
