Medingen Manuscripts

1479 was the year of convent reforms under the influence of „devotio moderna“. In Medingen one result of this was the founding of a scriptorium as a focal point of the convent.

A large number of medieval manuscripts were produced by the nuns. Nearly fifty of them have survived and can be found all over the world from Europe to USA. The late- medieval members of the Medingen scriptorium produced unique compilations of illustrated texts in Latin and Low German for themselves and as dedications to regional noblewomen.
