Magdalen College, Oxford: part I

Below are some photos from yesterday’s study trip to Magdalen College, Oxford. Many thanks to Dr. Christine Ferdinand and her invaluable help in the Old Library.

The far end of the Old Library.

Magdalen College cloister during a midday walk under its vaults. Built 15th c.

My desk had quite a view

Some of the book shelves

The manuscript I was working on: a Latin chronicle from 1006-1226

Closer view of the text: one column, many ambitions

Moveable type in the library, moveable organ in the street: overall, a moveable feast

Do you have an inkling of what’s going on here?
